You could always head this direction... spend a few days in Texas right now and you'd be contemplating removing the furnace for extra storage space.

There should be two wire running to the Furnace. Blue in color normally. Short them together and see if the fan runs. If the thermostat is old. It has a mercury switch with small wires. They could have broken.
You should also have a fuse inside the furnace accessable from the outside.

Questions

Is this the original furnace? If so you need to set the thermostat all the way to the left and light the pilot.
If you have done that; does the pilot stay lit?
Make sure you have 12 volts DC to the furnace.
If not; check the fuses.
Does the blower run when you set the thermostat to max? Even when there is no flame?
