    Default heat/cooling Fan speeds only run on high. 2002 Chev Malibu

    Hi

    My car is a 2002 Chev Malibu LS. 3.1 Litre engine.
    I remember someone here asking about the Fan speeds of the internal heating
    and cooling fan. Well, Mine just broke today. It only runs on the 2 high
    settings #4 and #5. It doesnt run on 1, 2 and 3.

    I think there is a web site with a schematic of a resistor block for the
    heating/cooling fan?

    Can someone direct me to it and help me to find where the fuses might be for
    that Item( fan).

    Thanks
    Larry

    The problem is the resistor pack is corroded. The resistor pack in most GM
    cars sticks in the duct at the output of the fan assembly. It is accessed
    are the passenger floorboard at the firewall. You have to be a contortionist
    to get to it and sometimes it is easier to take the passenger seat out to
    help gain access.

    Larry,

    Doubt it will be the same, but worth a shot - my 2005 Colorado PU
    developed the same problem - wiggling the fan electrical connector
    made it work again. Of course, this was not a permanent fix - but
    pointed out the problem area (loose connector pins).

    Regards,

    Larry A.

    More likely the connection was corroded. Try paying more attention to your
    preventive maintenance

    Thanks to everyone for the positive replies
    I also appreciated the web site link that will get me started.
    Except Mike, I didnt understand his reply. I also dont maintain the fuel
    filter in the gas tank either.

    Thanks again

    Larry
