This was wrong with my 01 Stratus and it was the blower motor. Between the part and the labor to have it fixed, it was around $130.

Your blower motor is more than likely the cause, it will only run on high, because the coil inside the blower is going bad and the high voltage is making it run.

Replace the blower motor.

    the resister is only for the switching of the direction of the heat ot og, such as defrost vent floor.....



    It will not cause the blower motor to only work on high.

Heater blower does not work on settings 1 2 and 3 but does work on setting 4 do you know why?


Bad ignition switch. Speeds 1,2,&3 go thru switch. Speed 4 does not and will work all the time provided fuse and motor is good. Your AC will not work either on speed other than 4.

My heater only works when i go above 50 miles an hour, and it only blows one speed, what is wrong?


Having to increase speed to get any heat means that your coolant may be low, as far as only 1 speed, the switch for the heater may not be working properly

You might have a bad speed selector switch, or your blower motor resistor is faulty.

Hyundai coupe r/h drive heater


hi from uk your heater fan problem is most likely to be what is known as the resistor pack sometimes called the reostat and is connected to fan motor case it has the wires for fan connected this unit operates rather like an elec hob controlling amount of heat if this simplifies it for you? speeds 1 2 3and 4 gives the speed selected on fan control knob not too difficult to find and diy a replacement? and not too expensive ? these units do burn out occasionally on most cars as they age hope this helps/inspires ?

Freelander heater switch 1997


the fan works at different speeds by switching to a different resister for the given speed. A common fault is the resister pack has a thermal overload/cutout which over time corrosion sets in and it breaks down. When you find the pack [normally under bonnet and in the motor cowling ]although not necessarily, you will see agroup of wires 4/5 remove the pack locate the thermal cutout ,bridge it and test ,if the fan works on all speeds #replace the unit# , we don't want a fire do we??. the information that i have supplied is for general electrical principles , and unless your freelander has computor controlled heating the principles will be the same. if it is computor controlled it could get expensive .Good luck i hope that i have helped in some way. Pat.
