Hi, the resistor is screwed to the side of the blower housing behind the glove box. See procedure below to replace the resistor. You don't have to complete all steps in the procedure. just work your way to the point that you can unscrew the resistor. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

See Figures 2, 3 and 4

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If so equipped, disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
  2. Remove the glove box.
  3. Remove the glove box frame (lower support)

It is your fan switch. The highest speed has no resistance so you get the full power to the blower while the lower settings have increasing resistance hence why you get lower speeds. Just change the switch.

Resistor would only make higher speeds not work. Not saying someone else is wrong but in my doings it will more likely be your Fan switch. best of luck.

How do you know if your blower resistor is bad?


Unlikely a blower motor resistor problem. If the resistor is faulty. the fan speeds will not work/fail on the lower speeds. High speed will normally always work. If the fan is non operational suspect a fan motor issue.Bad fan motor/switch/wiring to it

2001 chevy express fan motor doesnt work on high


That woul be a bad blower motor resistor or a bad blower motor resistor connection.Turn on the ignition switch and put the fan switch on high then pull on and wiggle the connector going to the resistor.These resistors get hot and usally melt the connector causing it to loose its contact with the prongs.The resistor is located on the passenger side mounted on the heat duct with to screws.

Hello my name is Sean and I have a 2002 ford focus wagon with a 2.0 motor. The blower fan for the heat and air has stoped working. I have ordered a new blower fan and resistor but havent received yet. I...


the fan motor is maybe bad, disconnect it (the motor) and put in new fuse, if its ok, then the motor is bad. the resistor only handles speeds lower than HIGH. so replace the motor first, then try it, if all speeds work, then the resistor is OK.

My lower fan speed don't work except for the high, the fan high speed stay highest


Hello sanjuis24
It sounds like you've got a bad blower motor resistor. The resistor is located under the right side of
the dash at the blower motor. A new resistor is not very expensive and it's a fairly easy DIY.
Hope this is helpful

01 grand.prix ac fan switch only works on high. has a duel temp controller when you turn fan off the only way fan comes back on is to move the temp controller levers


Hi!!
When the Blower Motor Resistor (controls blower speeds) goes bad, the blower motor works only on HIGH SPEED. REPLACE IT.
BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR Removal & Installation
  • Disconnect negative battery cable.
  • Remove right lower instrument panel insulator panel.
  • Disconnect blower resistor connector located behind right side of dash.
  • Remove blower resistor screws and blower resistor.
To install, reverse removal procedure
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

Need to change fan motor control switch? Only works on high setting.


this problem is not caused by the switch, it is caused by a defective blower motor speed control resistor, the resistor is located near the blower motor.

Jeff, If I understand you correctly you say your blower motor only works on high? check your blower motor resistor, located next to blower motor. The resistor makes the other speeds availiable, high bypasses the resistor, let me know if that fixes you up

Fan motor for the heat and air only works on high


No this shouldn't be a big problem. It sounds like it is just the blower motor relay.
