I had similar problem. There is a small electrical card that is behind the blower motor up into the unit. it is the part that the wires plug into. It has traces on the card that, when you select a speed, will allow current to flow to the motor. The trace that was for the #5 setting had opened up. I had to solder a wire across the trace. got my #5 back. This resistor card shoud be availble at GM dealers if you do not have the know how to fix it.

Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.

mine did the same thing. It was the gears breaking off in the resistor. However, the wiring harness and resistor melted inside of the dashboard AND DID NOT trigger the fuse... causing a safety issue. This was this past month. I notified GM and the National Highway Traffic Saftely Administration hotline located in the owners manual. They are not tracking this problem to see about safety recall. If you have this issue, you need to ntify them as well at their toll free number

Check the connector to the control head that you changed to see if the terminals in the connector are burned,also,I believe the blower has a module ,witch the resister is built into,has it not?
