Maybe the blower motor?

Hopefully I can get some help with my blower issue. Alright, here's the story. 99 Cherokee XJ. One problem I really gotta get fixed is my defrost cuz I just failed for it. At first my defrost hardly worked and the heat blew enough that I didn't freeze this last winter, the AC worked fine. Now only a little cold and hot air comes out. I can hear the resistor (?) make a slight hum when I change the temp control, but that stops shortly after I change it. Guys, any help you could give would be really appreciated. I thought it would be the blower motor but before I go and do all the work replacing it, I want to be more certain that is the issue.

Inspect the dashboard switch and wires. Look for burned/melted bits and probe for both voltage and wire continuity. Inspect the blower motor relay and wires (behind the glove box), look for burned/melted bits and probe for both voltage and wire continuity. Inspect the blower motor resistor and its wire plug, look for burned/melted bits and probe for both voltage and continuity.

Apply 12 volts directly to the blower fan motor to test the fan.

first i thought it would be an easy fix by getting a new climate control panel, so i did and still didnt work. the day i posted this. by the time i had posted this i had done all of that except apply voltage to the blower motor itself. i havent the slightest how to give it voltage.. i had seen somewhere that i might take wire and run it right from the battery to the blower motor? either way, i know i have an ohm-meter; i just dont know where. *sigh* its sounding like im going to have to replace the blower motor as none of the wiring looks damaged. quite the opposite, it looks almost new.

YES apply voltage directly from the battery before replacing parts.
