Loose Wire for Heating Blower?

Having a problem with my heating blower. There is obviously a loose connection somewhere because sometimes, when I hit a bump, it shuts off. Then, if I hit another bump (or just smack the dashboard) it comes back on.

Has anyone had this problem and can someone explain where to look for loose connections? I know the blower fan is under the dash near the air filter, but is there anything I should check up behind the controls on the dash? Anywhere else I should look?

Thanks y’all

Thanks guys - I actually found that post myself and did that process, but I was wondering if anyone found any problems at other points in the system - like where the wires connect to the controls in the dash?

I'd just like to know all the possible places to look for loose connections

You can check the wiring to the climate control unit; removal instructions are shown on Evilution's site: Evilution - Smart Car Encyclopaedia.
