SOURCE: heater fan only works on fastest speed

Your blower motor resistor has gone bad, it should be located next to your blower motor in the car, held in place with a couple of screws, remove it and replace it. The resistor is responsible for making the blower motor run at slower speeds than high or (4). Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford F150 - AC/Heater blower speed 1 & 2 not working.

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

SOURCE: heater blower dont work from 1 to 3 speed

Most likely cause is the blower motor resistor block. 1,2and 3 go through the resistor forth speed is is full blast therefore bypasses the resistor being the only speed setting that works when the resistor has failed

I own a 2005 jeep liberty. the ac, heater fan only works on selector switch setting # 4. nay sugesstions on why fan does not work on settings 1, 2 or 3.


The lower speeds are accomplished by running the power supply through various resistors that drop the voltage which makes the blower turn at different speeds. The lowest setting uses all the resistors to drop the voltage as much as possible to turn the blower as slow as possible. High speed uses no resistors so the blower gets full power and turns as fast as possible.

Since speed 1 and speed 2 use the speed 3 resistor to drop there voltage and speed three is not working as well my guess is the speed three resistor is burnt out in the device referred to as the blower motor resistor or blower motor speed control module. This is located near the blower motor and is held in place with 2 screws. There will be several wires and possibly two connectors plugged into it.

These are really common failures in many vehicles. The parts are usually available at your local auto parts store and they are typically not that expensive.

Hope that helped.

2003 chev malibu blower fan not working in position #1,#2 ,#3.Works fine on #4,#5 Help please


its the heater fan resistor thats causing it. it has coils for different fan speeds, if a coil burns out or breaks. then you will loose that fan speed. to replace resistor, remove glove box to give ya more room so you dont have to stand on your head!! remove insulating panel under glove box. loosen and slide ecm to the side. now you can see heater blower fan, resistor is beside it, just remove wires , take out the hold down screws. and thats it!

My 2000 Mazda MPV heater fan works for 4 not for 1


You need to replace the blower motor resistor,it's in the heater box.Number 4 bypasses the resistor and all the other speeds go through it so it's the most likely problem.

your fan speed regulator located on your heater core box is bad if its just one or some of the speeds. if the fan does not work at all its either a bad connection to your fan speed regulator or the fan motor has quit. out

Fan works on Full Setting ONLY. 98 pathfinder


there is a ballast resistor that should be next to the blower motor that controls the low speeds on the blower. change it and you should be all set.

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.
