I have a 95 suburban and it has a resistor module mounted to the heater plenum under the dash. It has a plug on the out side and 2 screws holding it in place. It is about 2x3 inches. It just looks like a flat plate on the outside. The resistor module has 2-3 resistors and it basically routes the power to the fan thru one of the resistors. The more resistance the slower the fan turns. That makes up the 3 speeds.
There is also a chance the motor is going bad and requires the full speed power to make the motor operate.
The resistor module is basically forward of the passengers left knee. If you know anyone with a meter, they could check it out for you.
If you have power at your motor plug on all 3 speed settings, chances are your motor is bad. You can get used ones from a salvage yard pretty cheap or buy a new one.

My fan blower works only on high


This may help. 10A fuse 6 and 10A fuse 12 in the passenger compartment junction block protect the blower. While you're at it, check 10a fuse 25 which protects memory power in the A/C control module. The 10A BLOWER fuse in the engine compartment junction block applies 12V power to the blower relay, not the high blower relay which, from your description, is working. If the fuses are OK, the blower relay is suspect. Also, the A/C control module may be defective.

Need to change the switch that works high, medium, and low. It is a separate switch mounted usually behind the glove box or somewhere under the dash. Hope this helps, Mitchell.

My lower fan speed don't work except for the high, the fan high speed stay highest


Hello sanjuis24
It sounds like you've got a bad blower motor resistor. The resistor is located under the right side of
the dash at the blower motor. A new resistor is not very expensive and it's a fairly easy DIY.
Hope this is helpful

01 grand.prix ac fan switch only works on high. has a duel temp controller when you turn fan off the only way fan comes back on is to move the temp controller levers


Hi!!
When the Blower Motor Resistor (controls blower speeds) goes bad, the blower motor works only on HIGH SPEED. REPLACE IT.
BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR Removal & Installation
  • Disconnect negative battery cable.
  • Remove right lower instrument panel insulator panel.
  • Disconnect blower resistor connector located behind right side of dash.
  • Remove blower resistor screws and blower resistor.
To install, reverse removal procedure
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

Heater blower stopped working?


Hello,
You may want to try your fan on all speeds. If it will work on high, you have a bad resistor for the fan motor. ( high speed doesn't go through the resistor ).
If it doesn't work on any speed, I would check the following;
1. Make sure the fuse isn't blown for the fan blower motor.
2. Check, or have checked the wires between the fan control switch and the fan blower motor.
3. Have the fan control switch checked.
4. Have the fan blower motor checked.

I hope this helps you.

My 2001 Voyager blower fan only runs on high.


This is 100% the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor located near the Blower Motor.
This is a very common problem with Chyrsler, Dodge, Plymouth. The key symptom is the Fan only working on High.
This is very easy to access and replace.

Let me know if this helped....

Vent fan only works when set to 4


Hi.....
On your Vehicle the problem for the FAN speed is NOT the FAN switch.
99.9 % of this problem on cars is the BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR.
The blower motor resistor give the speed to the Fan.
But on High speed the switch make a By pass of the switch using a Relay for the high speed.
The Blower motor resistor, is located Beside of the Blower motor On the passanger compartment.

If you replace the blower motor resistor you have 99.9% of this will solve your problem.

I'm a Mechanic.

I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...
