Frustrated cant find blower relay location anywhere!

I have been searching everywhere, someone please tell me the location of the blower relay on the GD3 even a picture cause I have looked in the fuse box and the relays aren't labeled, just the fuses

Are you talking about the heater/air conditioner blower? I don't think the Fit has a relay, just the switch on the dash and a resistor unit. That might be one reason why you're having trouble identifying the relay.

If yours only works on high speed, the resistor pack is burnt out and needs to be replaced, but search the forums before doing anything as there was a TSB about that problem for certain years...there was a batch of faulty blower motors that drew too much current and burned out the resistor pack. For those cars, it's necessary to get the blower motor replaced with the resistor (which a dealer should do for free) to have a permanent fix.

Try consulting a service manual; the middle column is the one just to the right of fuses. And yes it is second from tyhe bottom. There's a procedure for checking the relay too.
