If your Chevy is equipped like most vehicles, the speed control is accomplished by a stepped or tapped resistor that has now failed. This may be located on the fire wall under the hood or near the blower assembly under the dash. When these resistors go 'open' inside, it will only affect the lower speeds since the fastest speed bypasses the resistor completely. Can't say how hard yours is to access but the part is pretty itself is cheap, guess that's why they fail so often.

How do I replace my cabin blower motor fan for 2002 toyota camry?

Remove the 3 screws holding it in place along with the electrical connector. Usually tapping on the original one will make it work with the fan speed set on high if it is defective. If it starts working by tapping on it...... replace it

Heater blower stopped working?

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.

You may want to have your fan clutch checked. If the fan on your water pump does not spin very hard when the vehicle is idleing than it doesn't draw air through the condenser and that air keeps the condenser cooler plus it keeps the pressure down on the high side of the ac system. leave comment.

Motor switch has gone out, most likely due to high load on level 5. Replace switch and I suggest lubricating blower motor bearing to help take the strain on the system.
