Two possible problems: The switch on the dash needs replacing or the heater blower motor resistor (which is located below/under the glove box) is the issue.

Agree, chk the resistor pack with a multimeter, as these things are prone to fail.. An easy 5 min job to replace

Just replace the resistor it's $25 and 15 min install. The switch is very rare to be replaced.

Sounds like mine. I stopped by Auto Zone on the way home from work yesterday and picked up a replacement resistor for $19.99 (lifetime warranty). After diner, I replaced it, and she works on all speeds now!

The stock one I removed was visibly damaged from moisture, as you could see corrosion on the circuit board.

I used this YouTube video (actually 3 videos) to give me an idea what to do. Easy job, tight space. Good luck.
