Fan works fine first time I turn it on. Stop somewhere and turn the car off and restart after a few minutes (gas up) and the fan acts like its not getting power. Turn the car off and leave it for a while and the fan will work again when the car is started. Anyone have an answer to the reason for this?:confused:

It may be that the heat buildup from the engine is causing problems with the heater resistor? Mine was replaced by the PO at a cost of about $50.00.

I had a fan blower that would do almost the same thing. Would start ok & then would not start sometimes. My vehicle had about 200K miles on it at the time. Pulled the blower motor & was full of carbon dust from commutator brushes. Got a new one for around $30 - $40 & problem solved.
