Loss of One or More HVAC Blower Motor Speeds on Chevrolet Malibu

The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.

The blower motor stopped working at the lowest speed, then over time the second then third now the fourth speed has stopped working. I'm only left with the highest speed on the control switch that works. the repair was replacement faulty blower motor resistor block.

Same issues with 4 and 5 only working when the switch decides to operate correctly. AC turns itself off and on. GM has replaced the switch 3 times 1 or 2 times was under warranty. Now the blower is going out.

All of a sudden my ac goes off intermittently. More off than on while setting on max recirculation. When on fresh air it comes on more than when on max but not long enough to cool the car off. What can I do?

Lowest blower setting failed. Replaced resistor block & fan. Two lowest settings failed within 48 hours, third setting lasted 2 more days. Replaced resistor block & fan again. Three lowest settings lasted less than 5 minutes.
