Heater issues

My heater blows a lot of hot air on high.

Speed selection 1,2, &3 don't work.

You can feel the hot air from the heater by the fan isn't blowing. Turn it on high and it will get you out.

sounds like it is a bad or dirty switch.... Not sure if you can clean the switch r not but it may be worth a try...

There is a resistor that is a little bit of a PIA to change under the dash real close to the heater. On my '04 that was the issue for the same problem. No fancy tools needed or any great strength...just need to be a contortionist!! Think it is 9 or10 mm wrench and phillips screw driver.

If you remove glove box door a little more light to see.....

Sounds like a bad resistor, not the switch.

Had same problem on sons 2000. It was the heat /ac selector switch was melted from a blower motor going bad and pulling too many amps.Changed heat/ac switch and blower good to go now.
