Thanks for writing in about your 2012 Suzuki SX4. The blower motor must of got water in it and has caused it to have a short internally. If you locate the blower and have it turned on but it doesn't work, try tapping on motor to see if it starts turning. If it does, then replace the motor. If you are having trouble finding the problem, a certified technician from YourMechanic can diagnose your A/C issue at your home or office and follow up with the appropriate repair.
