Recently the blower motor for my A/C went out. When I turn the A/C switch
on, I hear it kick on but nothing is blowing from the vents. I'm assuming
this means that my heater and defroster will not work either. I plan to
check the blower motor and blower motor resistor but am not sure where
these are located. Can anyone provide a diagram for me or at least point
me in the right direction? Thanks.

Welcome to the club!
Most likely it's the blower motor resistor; quite a common problem with
our 2001 daks, apparently. I've been through two, so far. Do a google
on this group for "blower motor resistor" and you'll get plenty of info.
It looks pretty easy to replace, it's located just under the dash on
the passenger side, just to the left. It looks like you'll have to
remove the ductwork though, to get at it easily (awkward location).
Someone here did provide me a diagram, but I can't seem to find it now.
Also, there's some discussion that it's actually the blower motor
drawing too much current that's blowing the resistor, so if it happens
to my truck again (and I can still get the part) I'll probably replace
the motor as well as the resistor.
