Question about Cars & Trucks
It only works on high but when turned on it rattles and shakes the dashboard!
Defective blower motor and also a burned out blower motor speed control resistor is likely the cause of this.

Sounds like you may have a thermostat that is failing or your engine may have had a temporary vapor lock. First of all check your coolant level if that seems fine replace your thermostat. As far as being on high until you shut your heater off is probably just coincidence because when your heater is on it is helping to dissipate the heat from your coolant system.

If your car has a MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor, it would be located in the air delivery tube that runs from the air filter box to the throttle plate assembly on the intake manifold. It will have a wiring connector going to it, also. The MAF does exactly what it is called: It "senses" the volume, or "mass" of the air-flow; thusly it needs to be in the intake air tube. If you do NOT have such a device in the air-tube, you have a MAP sensor, (Manifold Absolute Pressure); this is another way of measuring the same air volume, albeit older technology. You will commonly find this device on the firewall, with a vacuum line running to the intake manifold.
I hope that this sheds some light on your question.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

If you have a poor ground on the blower motor or very worn blower itself, it can cause the resistor to become hotter than it was designed for. Less common causes are restriction in air flow in the heater box (resistor is air cooled) or gross overcharge condition from a bad regulator.(generally this would show up in other powered components as well though)
