Question about 1996 Chevrolet Astro
While i am not sure of the location there is a resister or a relay in the circuit that allows the fan to run on lower speeds. This is bypassed on high (full speed 12 volts) and is not used. i would try to find its location. The possible locations are fuse panel under hood or dash and near the blowers themselves.

Alot of people have the same problem with the fan switch and blown bulbs. There really is no fix for this. Jeep really screwed up when designing the heater control assembly. The cheapest solution is to buy another unit off Ebay. Can always go to the dealer but be ready to PAY for there mistakes.

Call your local Ford dealer parts department and explain your problem. Ask them for a base part number 19A706 resistor and the location so you can replace it. This part is located in the heater plenium chamber under the dash. This should reactivate your fan speeds to normal. You might also want to check the electrical conection to the resistor, as it has been known to melt from high heat at the connection. That part, if needed is 14S411. The numbers I've stated are base numbers. Your local Ford parts guy will do the rest.

THERE'S A SENSOR UNDER THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE CAR UNDER THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT YOU HAVE TO LOOK WAY UNDER JUST LAY DOWN ON TOP OF THE MATT IN FRONT OF THE PASS SEAT IT HAS 2 SCREWS ON IT UNPLUG IT THEN UNSCREW IT TAKE IT TO THE DEALER IT COST ME ABOUT 30 TO 50 DOLLARS BUT THAT WAS THE PROBLEM I HAD. GOOD LUCK

The first thing I would do is check to see if a fuse is blown or bad relay. Then I would unplug the blower motor with a test light make sure you are getting power to the blower located on the far passenger side of the vehicle under the dash if it has power and good ground then suspect vaulty motor. If you are not getting power at the plug then you might have a bad switch or resister. If it does have a blown fuse remember they usually blow for a reason like faulty wiring or even a in the motor itself. I would also recommend that you change the ac cabin filters behind the glove box if they have not been changed most people neglect them on that vehicle because they are a little more difficult to change, after removing the glove box there is a metal bracket in the way of opening the cabin filter compartment. They wont cause a blower motor to not work, however they do restrict airflow to the evaporator and they protect you from pollen, dust, and even exhaust gases. Hope this helps.
