Check the blower switch itself. Usually it's the main problem, as on low blow there's lot's of heat exposed at the switch which deforms the contacts, and this causes the malfunction. bending the contacts helps for a while, in some cases it lasts for couple of years, but for customer's vehicle and/or to avoid any further hassle easiest way is just to replace the switch itself.

Update me about your progress.

Good luck

Heater blower only works on high


Most likely the blower motor resistor or the fise for the low speeds. The high setting for the blower motor is on a separate circuit than the other lower settings.

Air conditioner wont work on high


There is a seperate blower motor relay for the high setting. check that first. It could be in the fuse box under the hood but i think it is near the blower motor... behind the glove box.

My blower fan inside the van only works on high. Do I need to replace the switch or is it a relay problem?


Sounds like you have an issue with the blower motor resistor. The resistor is located in the airbox near the blower motor. It is held in place with two screws.

The blower motor resistor uses a series of resistors to drop voltage to lower fan speed. The lowest setting uses the most resistance and the setting below uses the least resistance. Since all of the lower speeds use the resistor that the speed just below high uses if that resistor goes bad it will cause all the other lower speed settings to not work.

Heater fan only works on "high speed"


All cars are designed with a blower fan motor that pushes air through the ventilation system. This air is processed by a series of vents to direct the air to various positions. Example: heater, air conditioner and defrost modes. Most blower motors are power by a basic electrical circuit that utilizes a multi resistor or a solid-state resistor to control different fan speed modes (low, medium low, medium and high). If the resistor malfunctions it may lose one or more of the lower fan speed settings.

I have high speed blower but no medium or low


It's likely a relay. I've often seen where the lower settings are ran through one relay and the higher setting ran through another because of the difference in amperage. I'd start there, the relays are often pretty cheap and a lot easier to replace than tearing the dash apart to change the switch.

beleive it or not it is the high speed blower relay ... has one setting for high and a variable setting for all lower speeds ... usually found on the firewall near the blower motor

2005 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 Ac fan lost the 3 lower settings, only the high setting still worked. For a while the lower fan settings would just come on, and then go out again. The high fan setting...


Well, the blower resistor handles the lower speeds and the hi-blower relay handles the hi speed only. if the fan still works on the lower speeds then the resistor is bad. if the fan doesn't work at all then your motor has failed and or burn't the relay out also. if you can get your blower to start by hitting the kick panel above the pass. side foot area then the motor is bad. if you are handy enough to drop the kick panel and access the motor then check the connections at the motor. Then wack the motor and see if it comes on then. you will most likely find the problem if you follow those simple rules above. Good luck.
