Start with the electrical part of the ignition switch, a known fault.
It has been known (on this site) for the ignition key to get hot due to arcing contact's in the switch.

Let someone check the fan motor (under the glove box). I recently had this problem and discovered a bad connection at the motor.

hi pete
check the fuse to see if you are getting a current across the contacts (obvious). my heater blower died on me and it turned out to the main feed in the loom had a split in the insulator allowing the copper core to corrode clean through. there is also a thermal cutout resistor on the fan motor which sometimes needs replacing.
hope that helps

check the seal at the scuttle panel for leaking in water to the motor

Well !! Plenty of ideas here then so you should get to the bottom of it eh!!
My personal favourite would be, as someone mentioned , the wiring to the heater motor, under the glove box. Been there,done that.
Switch your ign. on, switch the heater blower on, then go under and have a wiggle of the wires. If it bursts into life - there you have it. Tends to be loose wires or, more likely, worn /sticking brushes and just wiggling the wires starts it off again usually, usually for a long long time. Only if your unlucky (if this is the fault) will you have to whip the motor out and "study" it. Tha said, its only 3 secrews if I recall. Let us know what happens anyhow.
