Heater not working on setting 3

The blower motor resistor is bad, when you have the fan on high the fan motor (or blower motor) gets full voltage. When you have the switch on any other setting it gets reduced voltage via the "Blower Motor Resistor". That part is usually fairly close to fan motor in the duct work and is held in place with a couple screws and has a plug in going to with several wires. Sometimes that plug in gets melted to the resistor and the plug (or pig tail) has to be replaced too. This should be a fairly simple fix depending on the location of the resistor. The parts should be less than $100.00

Electric fan on 87 escort gt wont come on I cant find a manual so I would like to know where is module. The fan worked a couple of days ago. also what is the way to check fan? I checked fuses under dash...

Check by your oil dipstick, in front of distributor , there should be a temperature switch threaded into cylinder head that controls cooling fan.
