Air blows out vents then cuts out and starts...then stops, off for a while, and on!

So over the last year if not more, the heat and AC would be blowing hard and everything was good then randomly it would just cut out and stop.

The digi climate control would show full blast, no air and then suddenly, it would come back on, then off. LIek when its working, I can adjust the speed and force of air no problem and then suddenly, boom, it cuts out!

As of now, its at the point where it basically doesnt come back on anymore and its winter time so I need the heat to defrost the front window!

Please help me out here, im a diy'r and need to tackle this asap

Im thinking its the blower resistor and it seems to be a quick 10 minute change
