    the problem was fixed on my vehicle by replacing the heater control resistor. Also the fix for the heater direction control was to replace hose leading to the switch through the firewall.

Sounds like the blower motor resistor is bad. These things go bad all the time. and for the switching modes there is a vacuum line that runs under the window in the engine compartment and runs by the alternator, its tiny and may take a few minutes to find. check first by the evaporator case and follow it by the alternator to the driverside of the throttle body. these too break and will not allow the heater mode changes. the blower motor resistor controls the fan speeds and the vacuum line allows which vent the air flow goes through.

quite simple ,look under the passenger side and between the blower motor and the heater unit is a pollen filter ,either clean it out or renew it ,they are not that expensive.You may have to remove the glove box to gain access to the filter though as model and year not stated i cannot look in my book

My fan won't blow hot or cold air unless i'm driving fast on the interstate


Sounds like your heater blower motor is not functioning properly. At high speeds it's probably drawing air in from the outside then through the vents (defrost, etc.). If blower motor sounds like it's running, then maybe the squirrel cage (heater fan blade) is not spinning and in need of repair or replacement.

I can turn my ac or heater to high and its barley blowing any air through the vents


sounds like a bad blower motor. fan blades may be detached from the shaft. shorted or bad ground in wiring/switch. check the motor by applying 12v directly to the motor

Blower motor doesn't blow anymore, This blows


If it blows only on high speed, it is the resister.
If it does not work at all, check fuses first. See owner manual for location.
Then check blower motor by jumping 12 volts from battery to blower motor. Make sure ground is jumped too.

If it works now, it's the control panel. If not, it is the motor.

Blower Motor —Front Removal and Installation
  1. Prepare the vehicle for blower motor (19805) removal.
    1. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301). For additional information, refer to Section 414-01 .
    1. Remove the air cleaner assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 303-12 .
  1. Detach the speed control servo.
    1. Disconnect the electrical connector.
    1. Remove the bolt.
    1. Position the speed control servo aside.
  1. Position the coolant expansion tank/windshield washer reservoir aside.
    1. Remove the screws and the nuts.
    1. Position the coolant expansion tank/windshield washer reservoir aside.
  1. Remove the blower motor.
    1. Disconnect the vent hose.
    1. Disconnect the electrical connector.
    1. Remove the four screws.
    1. Remove the blower motor.

Also,

Heater Blower Motor Switch Resistor(s)
The front heater blower motor switch resistor has the following features:
  • The assembly is located in the engine compartment on the evaporator housing (19850) next to the blower motor assembly (19805).
  • Three resistor elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • An overheating device (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil circuit when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F), interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except high.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.
