Question about 2005 Pontiac Vibe
I have a 2005 Pontiac Vibe. The heater fan only works on the high position. Does the fan unit need to be changed?
My 2005 Vibe did the same thing it was the heater resistor. It is located to on the firewall behind the glove box on the lower left side of the blower assembly. Two 5.5mm screws hold it in place (1/4 inch socket works too). I used a socket attached to a socket swivel to replace mine in under 10 minutes. Heater now works as good as new. I purchase mine online for $30 from rockauto.

Nope, you just need the change the heater resistor pack. This is the part that controls the fan speed and it is fairly common that it burns up and only works on high. Usually the resistor pack is located behind the glove box in the cabin of the vehicule, either in the heater motor assembly or somewhere in a vent duct. The second option is the most common, as most companies prefer putting it in the duct instead of in the moto assembly cause it makes it faster to change, and therefore costs them less man hours to change it if it breaks under warranty.

The switch most likely needs replaced.The switch usually has resistors in it for the different speeds,the parts guy should know.When the switch is in the high position it bypasses the blown resisters to give full voltage to the motor.If it works on high the motor is ok ,find and replace the resistors.

I just fixed this problem. Much research told me it was 90% caused by resistor. Bought $40 at O'Reilley (Pep Boys etc).After removing Glove Box door;take bright light and put on floor shinning up . Look through slot to left side of glove box and you will see it. Four wire Elec connector going to it. Lay across driver side seat. Look through slot and work with righhand. Disconnect wires. Use 5.5 cc socket (Home Depot 1.70) 1/4 " small ratchet works great. Back screw is tricky.Push on firewall as it appears to be some soft fabric and will give you more space. Good luck
