Sorry, long day. I will make the edits.

BSM = Engine bay fuse box (this controls the blower fan supply)

BSI = Glove box fuse box

I would consider this to be a likely suspect.

If it is not the control panel, the fan motor wiring, then it is only the BSM left. I wouldn't expect the fan motor wiring to give your sort of problem, the control panel as been dismissed, and leaves the BSM as the only part that switches power to the blower.
