Fan speed control works on high only

I am experiencing the same problem. I've had two different diagnoses:

1) Blower Motor Control Module/Resistor (under $40)
Dorman Part # 973442
2) AC and Heater Control Switch (Reman. Part: $234 + Core charge of $222.)
DORMAN Part # 599030
(Prices current from

In addition to the recent blower problem, 5 years ago I had the A/C blowing out the floor/defrost vents only, too; but with no vacuum leaks. I was told then I needed the AC/Heater Control Switch; but instead I made it a "manual" automatic climate control. I disconnecting the vacuum connector plug from the control unit and used the male end to make the connections. It was much easier on my pocket book and still works today.

The connections I found on my 2003 Grand Marquis:
Black: Supply
Blue: Panel door
White: Air inlet door
Yellow: Floor/Defrost door
Red: Floor door

The Fix:
I used a vacuum hose directly from Black to Blue and White. This required a short piece of vacuum hose with one T connection. The temp control still works including the fan speed control (until now). I live in Texas and it doesn't get too cold. But occasionally I connected Black to Yellow directly to get me thru those real bad cold spells.
Bottom Line: Not sure what I going to do but leaning towards replacing the Control Switch and the vacuum connector plug. Especially, since the price of the switch is more reasonable today. A 50% savings from 5 years ago.

On my z71 1996 model rear bake lights don't work but the third light works, could it be the brake switch ?

No, it is not the brake lamp switch. If the brake lamp switch was not working, the high mount (3rd) brake lamp would also not function.
Chevrolet trucks are notorious for bad tail lamp circuit boards.

Disconnect the electrical connector from the circuit boards. Check for power at the circuit board connector (with the brake pedal depressed) on each side. The brake/turn lamp circuit for the left side is the YELLOW wire. The brake/turn lamp circuit for the right side is the GREEN wire. If there is power at the connector, check the GROUND (BLACK wires) to make sure they are getting a good ground. If the power and ground circuits are OK at the connector, replace the circuit boards.

NOTE: DORMAN makes a kit that includes circuit boards for both sides it is DORMAN Part Number 70001

If there is no power on the YELLOW and GREEN wires at the circuit board connectors, the most likely cause would be a defective turn signal switch.

What is the part the goes on the hose for the splitters that connects to the three hoses for the cooling system on a 2001 Ford Focus ZTS?

I assume that you are talking about the Thermostat Housing. (The plastic thing where the upper radiator hose mounts, along with a heater hose and a bypass hose.) These are bad about cracking and leaking. Dorman makes a replacement assembly for this. The kit comes with the entire assembly, including the thermostat. It should be available at most any parts store.

Disconnect radiator from transmition oil lines

O.K. here we go.. The fittings require a special tool to release line from fitting. Look here its a good listing of disconnect tools with the tools application along side of it. Probably A379

Next, on those vans the lines and fittings are notorious for leaking and I have found best supplier for replacement lines and fittings is Dorman, really good quality aftermarket parts.

Go to where the lines and connectors are listed and look yours up. For sure you will be replacing fitting and I bet you will end up replacing lines.
Those transmissions are notoriuos for failing early so now might be good time to service transmission.
You can take the tool part number, and dorman numbers to local O'reillys and if they don't have in stock they will have at warehouse a few hours away. You may have to look for same tool made by another manufacturer, I am not 100% with my guess on your tool, ask your parts guys.
