The switch is ok, you will need to replace the "blower resistor" , its located right there beside the blower motor.

91 honda accord fan stars when you shut off engine


There are two fan switches on that car;
The main one turns the fan on and off when the ignition is on and the car is running.
The second switch powers the fan if the ignition is off and the engine temperature is too high, to cool the engine off if it was just shut down.
It sounds like your main fan switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced since it's not sending any signal to the fan, while the engine is running.

Headlights went out. Replaced bulbs and switch and still lights don't work. Fog lights and high beams work? What else can work?


If high beams work and low beams do not, then it is probably the high/low relay. It is part number 15016745 and has four prongs. To test if your relay has gone bad locate the relay in your fuse box. There will be two of these relays located next to each other. One controls the low beam headlights and the other the cooling fan. Swap the relays and check your low beam headlights. If the low beams work you have a bad relay.

2004 GMC Sierra 4dr truck. the fan does not work


The switch or the wire harness at the blower motor has gone bad. The highest setting 5 has no resistor, so the blower runs on high but the high current flow ends up burning up the switch's contact on that setting or the resistor wire harness at the blower motor has gone bad. Common would be the switch it self, if the switch is good. Then it's going to be the wire leads at the speed resistor by the blower motor under the glove box by the passenger leg compartment. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your Sierra running 100% again soon.

My Air conditioner only works on high


The switch that runs the blower motor for air and heat sends the DC voltage through some big resisters when it isn't set on high. (On high it sends all the power to the motor.)
If the lowest speed doesn't work then one of the resisters has gone bad, or come disconnected. If more than 1 speed doesn't work then a differant resister has gone bad or disconnected. The power runs through each resister in series so the most common one to go bad is the second to highest speed. when this resister is bad thaen it will only work on the highest setting. Replacing the switch won't fix it. You will have to find the resister that is bad and replace it.
The resister bank is usually tucked up behind the dash where only a kid can focus his eyes, and contort himself enough to see it.
Once the resister is replaced it should run perfectly.
Presto.
