Its your temp limited switch give these websites a try and for the most part its close to the blower motor itself if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

How to trouble shoot heat/ a/c fan switch.

Will your blower fan kick on in the medium position by chance? Med/ med high..if it is a 4 position switch, does it operate in the number 3 position? If so it is probably your blower motor resistor. If not, I would test the blower motor itself. Since the compressor kicks on when you turn the fan on, I would think the switch is working.

Why does my blower only work on number 4

this sounds like a bad blower motor resistor that is bad and only working when the switch is put in the 4th position. the resistor has resistors wires in it that respond to the path of power through fan switch on the dash, depending on which fan speed you need.

The fan will not come on in the first 4 positions,

It may be the fan motor reostat. It's located under the dash on the passenger side on the duct work. It kinda works like a dimmer switch.

Heater blower switch will only work at possion 4

Underneath the glove compartment on the passenger side is a cover which must come off,2 plastic screws holding this cover.Underneath you will find a 5 pin connector[big plug] connected to a white connector in the blower fan housing.This is called the fan resistor which controls the blower fan speed.Unclip the resistor out the housing and renew.Your problems should be solved..regards

Climate control switch does not work in lower modes only in high.

The pontiacs have an issue with the ignition switch, I have a 2001 grand prix that did the same. The ac fan would only work on 5 and the headlights would go off if on 1-4 replace the switch and all is fine.

Fan switch position 3 and 4 do not work

More then likely the switch itself is bad. Chances are the contacts inside the switch are not connecting and allowing the motor to operate in those positions. If possible, try a known good switch in it's place.

Climate control fan

I had the same problem and after checking all the appropriate fuses was looking for the cost of a new switch and noticed another with the same problem and directed me to the 4-pin connector under the glove box. I noticed electrical tape coming loose and thought maybe the connector had been hit by a passengers foot, etc. I jiggled the connector and reseated it and tried the fan switch and it worked. I then taped the 4 pin connector up against the housing with electrical tape and it has been working fine ever since. Maybe the connectors do not mate properly or are too loose of engagement. Hope this helps....saved some $$$$......Can't believe electrical tape was used by GM in lieu of some other more attractive method.

4 speed blower (fan)

You'll have to go to the dealer and buy a new switch panel. There is a circuit board behind the switch panel that went bad on yours. Don't get one from the wrecking yard, I made that mistake once.
