Underneath the glove compartment on the passenger side is a cover which must come off,2 plastic screws holding this cover.Underneath you will find a 5 pin connector[big plug] connected to a white connector in the blower fan housing.This is called the fan resistor which controls the blower fan speed.Unclip the resistor out the housing and renew.Your problems should be solved..regards

Heat limiting capacitor is blown on low side. Limits excessive heat to components. Three capacitors on one board. One is constant. One runs two lower speeds and other runs two higher speeds. Need to replace. Follow wire from blower motor back towards center of vehicle. The capacitor is approx. 1.5" X 2.5" and is mounted with two screws. Simply remove plug and two screws, pull out capacitor. Replace with new in reverse order. Did last year. Part was relatively cheap and easy to replace. You do have to be somewhat limber to fingers and tools under there.

Check the cover for the environmental cabin filter. It is located on the far right side of the cowling right below the right windshield wiper. There are a few torx screws that secure the cover and then it pulls out to reveal the cabin filter. The cover (being poorly designed by VW) cracks and during rain the rain runs off the window and soaks the cabin filter. The water from the soaked filter then drips down into the blower motor and shorts out the resistor module at the bottom of the blower motor. The blower will continue to operate at full speed because it is operating on an open circuit without need for resistance for the resistor pack. There is a small access "panel" at the bottom of the blower motor you will need to remove in order to see the problem, you should see a frighteningly burned looking module in there. Good Luck! Hope this helps!

It could be the blower resistor. While I'm not familiar with the 2008 Escape, most resistors are located near the blower motor under the dash on the passenger side. It'll have a plug with several wires, and usually 2 screws holding it in.
