This problem is caused by the blower speed control resistor, it is located near the blower motor.

SOURCE: The heater fan switch only works on the high setting

Generally this a problem with the blower resistor, but also check the fuse.

SOURCE: The fan/blower only works on the high setting.

the various speeds are controlled through resisters (spring-like in apperance) one of different value for each speed, none for highest speed as the power gets to the blower uninpeeded . the resistor pack could be located on the center of the firewall, held by 2 screws. thats under the hood. where the engine bay ends...i.m sorry i don't know the exact position on your model

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Grand Prix the blower only blows on

The blower resister can be bad. The high speed relay is fine since that works

No.

Probably not. If it runs on high, it is probably good.
Unless is sounds slow or 'tight' on high, or squeaks or chips , etc. Run the fan with the engine off and then shut the fan off and listen and see if you can hear how long it takes to slow down. If it stops in just a second or two, the bearings are tight (dry). If it spins down normally, maybe three to eight seconds or more, the motor is fine. You really don't need this check.

It is most likely your blower relay.
Most cars have one or two relays to control the fan motor, which is a single speed motor that the relays and speed switch and blower resistor control the power to.

One relay is for high speed, also switch contact.
One relay is for other speeds and divert current through a blower resistor located by the fan duct under the dash or under the hiid by the fan.
Also the switch contacts for each speed.

It cad be the dash switch, which has to handle the blower resistor current for all the lower speeds is burned out at those speeds.
It can be the low speed blower relay, as I mention above, is burned out, this is most frequent cause.
it can be the blower resistor is burned out, this can give no low speeds, or loose speeds below a certain speed setting.

Try you manual for the blower relays' positions. Try swapping with the horn relay to test if it is the same type of relay.
Take out the blower resistor carefully (pretend you are defusing a bomb or playing "operation" game as it has exposed coils that are delicate and if you bump the sides of the opening as you extract it you will damage it and short the coils against each other). the wire coils are very fine bare wire coils that look like springs and if touching can burn out.
Switch is harder to test because hard to get at, check the other things first.
You should be able to test for voltages at the resistor plug to see if power is coming from the switch, but wiring schemes can vary.
Post back or use shop manual to troubleshoot the switch.

SOURCE: The Heater Blower fan on our 1999 Tahoe only blows

Hello Go west.
No specific fuse I am afraid.
What you will find is a burned out blower motor resistor.
This resistor is mounted beside the blower motor just above the passengers feet under the dash.
Two small screws hold it in place. Easy to do. You may need to remove a hush panel to see it.
The resistor should be available at your favorite auto supply or at the dealer.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Where is the fuse for the fan speed selector in my 1999 Toyota Camry . My fan only works on high.


Blower is under the dash on the passenger side. There is a resistor close to it. Replace it.

Where is the fuse for the blower resistor pack , in a 1999 Toyota Camry. My fan only runs on high.


That would mean you need a blower motor resistor, there is no fuse for that. Well the fuse is the same for the Blower motor circuit but since the blower motor works on high.

I have a 1999 camry. The fan only works on high. On high it works well so it's not a motor issue. I've checked the fuses and they are good. Any thoughts?


It sounds like the resistor block for your heater/AC fan has gone bad. Here's a link to a few I found on line for the 1999 camry to give you an idea of the cost. When the resistor block goes bad the motor defaults to its highest setting.

A local autoparts store like autozone should also carry this part. They will also probably be able to give you some advice about how to install it.

I hope this helps you out.

The fan speed resistor is the problem........when you are on full speed the current bypasses the resistor and this is what gives you the fastest speed from the fan motor.......on 1, 2, or 3 speed setting, it is directed through the fans speed resistor circuit

It is located in the air box behind the glovebox on the interior of the car passenger side

Heater works only on high speed on a 1999 toyota camry CE 4 cyl. Please advise what may be the problem.


I just fixed this problem on my 99 Camry. The fan only worked on high. It was the resistor. Bought it for $29.99. It is under the dash on the passenger side. Just above where the passengers left foot would be. You DO NOT need to take out the glove box. The resistor is located just above where the carpet ends. It is held in place by a plug with about 6 wires. It has two phillips head screws. Get a short elbowed phillips head and switch it out.

Heater fan only blows air in the highest "on" position


Well it sounds like the blower motor relay is out you might also need a blower motor if it is using to much juice on high speed then the blower motor is probabley about to go out and with the noise you are describing it sounds like a bearing in the blower motor is about to go out so probabley should change the blower motor and the blower motor relay.

2003 Camry A/C and Heater fan only works on High


The heater fan resistor has failed. This is the device that controls the voltage to the fan motor, on the 3 lower speds, The resistor is bypassed when HIGH is selected. It is located under the dash, passenger side, on the box between the heater fan blower housing and the main heater box at the center. Held in by 2 phillips screws. Easy to change.Hope this helps, and Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please feel free to comment back if you have any other questions.
