Question about 2002 Buick LeSabre
Where is the blower motor resistor on the 2002 buick lesabre?
These cars don't have a resistor per say. They are equipped with a blower module which is on the right end of the blower case behind the glove box. Much more expensive than the typical resistor.

Yes it is the blower Motors Resistor board. It is up behind the blower motor, just under the glove box. You have to remove the black KICK panel with its two "Push Pins" that will break too. There are 3 screws holding that resistor board in, the back two are a bear to get to. Good luck.

SOURCE: location of blower resistor
The 96 LeSabre Custom and LeSabre Limited use an electronic module in place of a blower resistor.
It is under the hood on the firewall on top of the heater plenum, but below the relay rack.
They tend to short and run on high until the module burns out and then it quits.
The same part is used on many high-end GM cars from 92 to 96. The electronic module has two connectors on it. (If yours has only one plug it is a real resistor pack and not electronic.)

There are actually two possibilities for your issue. First is the blower motor resistor as you stated as a possibility. The blower motor resistor is usually located inside the blower motor housing unless the blower motor is mounted horizontally and is accessible from the engine bay (which I do not believe is the case in your Buick) in which case the blower motor resistor is going to be located in close proximity to the motor.
The other possibility is that the ignition switch is going bad. Now, this may seem strange at first, but GM ran much of the power for the accessories through the ignition switch and as a result, carbon builds up on the contacts and starts to affect the operation of the accessories. However, I dont think this is the case in your issue as that is normally accompanied by issues with other accessories like the radio and such.
I think it is more likely that the blower motor resistor is bad in your case. I believe your blower motor is located on the passenger side, against the firewall close to the center console. If you contort yourself in a way where you can look at the bottom of the blower motor housing you may see a connector on the bottom, or a small access panel. If so, that is likely the blower motor resistor.

faulty blower motor resistor. The low and medium speed on blower motor is
controlled by resistor and its actual speed is high. So because resistor is not
working, blower motors actual speed which is high is working.
can be faulty blower motor or faulty blower motor resistor. Get the blower
motor inspected. If it's faulty it has to be replaced.
