2000 Astro only has high speed on heat fan

Postby Vaughn [OP] » November 15th 2017, 5:34am

My Astro fan motor just quit working on anything but high. Is it usually in the motor or is it the switch in the dash.
I am going to have access to switch when I put in a new radio, I could easily put in a new switch while I have access.
Don't want to wait till the motor totally quits. It's getting cold here in Pa

Either the blower motor resistor or the main vacuum line.

Usually the resistor/controller at the blower motor.

Vacuum line is when it jumps to or stays on defrost.

Yep. Blower motor resistor is my bet. Very common. When they go out the resistor fails and you only have on and off nothing in between.
