If the blower moter only works on hi speed it is the blower motor resistor that is bad. The blower motor resistor is located under the passenger side of the dash next to the blower motor. It is not necessary to remove the blower motor to change the resistor.

Why would my fan not be blowing hot or cold air?

You could have a relay that is bad , Blower motor relay in the under hood fuse/relay box. Or the blower motor itself could be bad . This is where you need to get a wiring diagram an a component location chart an a DVOM digital volt ohm meter an do some testing . The blower motor resistor , is this the part you changed ? If you haven't high blower operation either it couldn't be the blower motor resistor .

My air condition is not blowing

More than likely it's your blower motor resistor, but first thing is first check for blown fuses. If fuses are all intact locate the resistor which is usually located under the dash on the passenger side close to the blower motor case.( which will be a black plastic cylindrical box) The resistor will have a wiring harness running to it. With the key in the on position and the fan turned full on slowly move the harness around if the fan starts working, you have a bad connection or broken resistor. Which is common since people accidentally catch the wires with their feet or stretching on a long trip. If you replace the resistor disconnect your battery first, resistor is usually held in with a couple of screws, remove and be careful when installing new resistor they can be a bit fragile, best of luck!

Blower motor blows on high only

Fan motor resistor broken. High fan circuit has no resistor so it still works.

it may not be the blower motor. it may be the blower motor control module which use to be the resistor. it's located under the pas. side. remove the black coyer , 2 scaews above the pas. foot area. then remove the blach unit that has a purple wire going to the back of the motor on the right. price about 140 dollar with tax.

Blower only blows on high not on any other setting

if you locate blower motor wires test for voltage on lower fan speeds if no voltage re rmove the blower motor resistor and look for open or burn marks on it its usally located near the blower motor it will have three or four wires going to it.
