My bet is that there's a relay at fault... but first: have you checked the fuses? the high blower speed draws a lot of power, so sometimes it's fused separately from the other speeds. This means that your fuse for the slow blower speeds could be blown. Also, because theblower draws so much power, you'd need a HUGE switch to switch it directly, so they use a low-power switch inside the car, and a relay (usually under the hood, but sometimes under a seat (check your owner's manual) to do the heavy work. These are often split the same way, with the high blower on one, and the slow on the other. These are the things that are easier to check, but it could just be that the switch is bad. Mid 90s Land rovers and Range Rovers have the same problem, where the only blower speed that works is HIGH, making the cabin sound like a wind tunnel... Just the switch. The switch can be a pain to replace if you do it yourself, but do check the fuses first, and see if you can find the relays. if the fuses are okay, and you find the relays, try to find the one that's for the fan and swap it out, it shouldn't be more than 3-4 dollars from an auto parts store, just bring in the old one to match it, or swap it for another relay that's nearby and has the same pins. If the swap works, just remember to get another relay, because the one you "borrow" from another circuit could be the door locks or the headlights or something else important....

Rear heater working ok , but front heater blows cold ?


Best case is you accidentally left the AC switch on... Check for pinched/bent hoses near firewall of passenger side. Worst case is the heater core is clogged. In this case someone can backflush the heater core to clear it. Good luck!

A/C cuts out if fan on max. speed.2000 Mazda MPV fan very slow in 1,2,3 but powerful in 4. However a/c works in 1,2,3 but with fan on 4 it cuts out and won't restart. Obviously the fan resistor


sounds like a fault with the switch unit for the fan ,to know for sure i would need the offending vehicle in front of me take the switch out and have a play ,also of course threaten it with the lump hammer but all joking apart its difficult to diagnose without a play to determine exactly what the problem is

My 2000 Mazda MPV heater fan works for 4 not for 1


You need to replace the blower motor resistor,it's in the heater box.Number 4 bypasses the resistor and all the other speeds go through it so it's the most likely problem.

Heater fan only works on the high position?


There is a plug up under the glove box that loosens and you need to snug it up.

Subject: 2004 isuzu rodeo...my ac/heater blower is not working


The resistors are in circuit only on the lower fan speed settings.
On the highest speed setting, power is switched directly to the fan motor.
Check fan power supply fuses,
Check power is available to the fan when high speed selected.
If all above OK, apply power directly to the motor to verify fan motor runs- if it doesn't the motor may need replacement/repair.

2004 elantra heater control only operates at #4 setting


If # 4 is the highest fan setting it might be the resistor pack that controls the fan speeds.For each speed increase the fan switch takes a resistor out of the resistor loop The highest speed is a direct connection to the battery. The switch is usually located very close to the fan since it gets quite hot and needs to be cooled by the fan.It is also generaly accessible from under the hood,but not always.Sometimes it is under the dash Hope this helps.
