This is caused by a bad fan resistor, the resistor has differant size coils for each speed. if a coil fails then you will lose that speed.

I have a 2001 Nissan Maxima ....The 1 and 2 fan speeds don't work..but speeds 3 and 4 work fine.

Most likely the blower motor resistor has burned out. It is pretty easy to replace - search online for instructions.

Why won't my heater shut off? I can dial the fan down to the lowest blower setting, but it won't shut off at the Off button. The temp. is therefore set at 83 degrees. The modes work i.e., floor, defrost,...

If the ventilation system is set on any setting other than off (I'm talking about the vent, heat, defroster, ac, etc) the fan motor will automatically run at low unless yo select a higher setting. To get the fan OFF, turn off the ventilation system by selecting OFF.

I trust this response answers your question ...

Fan doesn't work on low speeds in 2001 Grand Am

blower motor resistor is a highly probable cause.. another would be the switch/selector itself.

Air conditioner/heater only works on number 3 on setting

It could be the switch or the blower resistor has gone bad. You can check the wire leads to the blower resistor for any power problems which would indicate a speed switch issue. If all the speed setting has good power at the wire leads to the resistor, then it's gone to be a bad blower resistor and you can pick on up at Auto Zone and there will have the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your trailblazer running 100%

Heater blower not working

I would check the blower motor fuse first. If that's all fine, than check at the blower motor connector (behind the glove box). unplug the connector (white connector with 2 wires red and black I think) and unplug it. Turn the fan control ON. Get a DVOM (digital volt meter) or just a plain old analog meter and check across the connector. You should have some reading, while you are using the blower controls by the radio. The faster you wabt the blower motor to go the more voltage there willl be on the meter and vise versa. So in other words on full HIGH the meter should read about 12V. On LOW the meter will be down to 6V or so. The speed adjustment of the blower motor gets done by the "blower motor resistor" and the controler by the radio. Anyways, let me know what you find as far as the voltage goes at the blower motor. OR you can just turn on the control on high and tap the motor with something solid (hammer) and see if it comes on. I have a feeling that it will.
