Question about 2001 Mazda Protege
I just had my alternator replaced, and unless I just didn't notice it, right after that my heater would only work on full-blast #4 setting. Once it gets warm I can turn the blower down and still get some residual heat, but it doesn't blow unless it's on #4 setting. I can hear a sound like a fan starting up when it hits 4, but no sound whatsoever on 1, 2 or 3. I've looked up everything from relay switch to motor blower resistor and can't determine which it is, if any of that. I also can't find a diagram to fix it. If it's an easy fix, I'd rather do it myself instead of paying another mechanic. I know the parts are somewhere behind the passenger side dash or glove compartment, but how do you get to it? Any help greatly appreciated.

Exhaust system needs a visual inspection to determine defective part.
Drain hose to evaporator is clogged.Put on eye and face protection, use a soft stick object to shake the debris from the evaporator hose free. Lots of cold water will fall on you if your not

You may have a faulty fan switch. Had mine replaced when only #1 and #4 were working and it fixed the problem. Unfortunately, there may be more issues, as a year later the switch is failing again. May be some kind of feedback that is causing it to fail.
