Hey guys, long time no post!
Here's whats wrong: My Fan for the HVAC (probably not the right term, but I hope you know what I mean.) seems to only work on Hi (4). On any other setting (1-3) it only kinda works, depending on how fast i'm going. If i'm going below 40 I don't get any air.
What do I need to do or check?
Thanks in advance!

Common problem. Blower resistor needs replaced. $20-30 part
And pretty easy to replace. Need to do mine before winter too.

You may also have a vacuum leak...

Ok. So can someone shed some light on where about it is, and how to change it? If you have pics that would be nice to. Thanks!

I can't say for sure as there's no info on model or year but on my 99 TJ it's in the passenger side compartment just below the glove box. 3 screws and that plastic plate comes down to reveal your resistor with 2 nuts and probably some burnt wires. Also there is your vacuum line for the vent door. Again, this is just for my 99 not sure about you but it's super common and supper easy to replace depending on how bad the wires are burned up. Autozoney sells these with a lifetime replacement so no worries there.

edit:It may be super easy to fix but for supper not a good endeavor
