    I have a Trane XL80 that is not working....nothing.
    Even setting the fan to on, nothing is happening.
    I am getting voltage in from my thermostat. How can I confirm whether the faulty component is the blower relay? How do I determine if it's something else? I would really like to try and take care of the repair myself.

    you may like to repair it yourself. but would you like to to get it fixed right, and cheaper in the long run. Shop around for a reputable HVAC repair shop. call your friends and relatives first.

    Is there power to the furnace?
    Is the filter clean?

    I would call a technician. On this forum, specific DIY questions are frowned upon.

    It was a bad power switch. I thought I had checked that before I got to the relay, but I guess not....Anyway... heat and only a $1.20 repair bill!

    Well, that was his first clue.
    Dead end suspecting the blower relay...oh well.

    Yeah I saw that but I was just making an assumption since as you pointed out otherwise it was impossible.
