Few questions from a new owner

I bought a 02 x with 75k miles friday. I had to make a fairly decent drive to pick it up. My first question is the fan switch, it only works on the 2 highest settings. From a search it seems I need to change relay close to the blower right? 2nd the selector switch only works on the floor and on defrost. It turns the ac off and on but it makes no difference where I put it it only blows on the defroster and floor. Where do I start with that? No melting on either one.
I was going to ask about the clutch noise when the petal is out. Its making a grinding rattling sound but from searching this seems normal for wranglers.
I also had the check engine light come on and had it checked and reset at autozone. It was the downstream o2 sensor but after 30 miles of driving it still hasnt come on so I guess that was a fluke. I have put about 400 miles on it over the weekend, including a beach trip and have been loving it. Its stock with the exception of me installing a cd player and putting my sub and amp in today. Tomorrow is going to be servicing it and cleaning it up.
Lastly where is a good place to get premolded replacement carpet for it. I have the front but the rear and cargo area is missing.

Possible solution

As far as your blower only working on the two highest settings, the first thing that i would check is the connections at the blower motor and see if there is some corrosion on the terminals that is causing a high resistance. This happens on many vehicles, not just wranglers. Most people make the mistake and go buy a new blower motor, when the blower is the not the problem.

Any ideas on the switch? It sucks having the ac blowing on your feet in south Ga.

x2, i believe the selctor switch on wranglers is vacuum controlled. check for broken/disconnected lines in engine compartment

I checked the lines and they seem fine. I unplugged the vacuum line in the engine compartment to make sure I was getting a vacuum, I was. When I plugged it back up it went to vent. Now it only works with the vents and the defroster. I guess thats all I need but would like to figure it out.
I am going by the dealer to get a resistor pack for the blower to see if thats why my speed switch isnt working.
