If you have an amp clamp, you can just clamp it around the blower power wire for a measurement. Using a multimeter to measure current requires that you break the circuit and put the meter in series with the blower motor.

I don't know what the amperage should be. It is fed from a 40A fuse through the blower motor relay, but it won't be anywhere near 40A. I'd guess between 15 and 20 amps.
