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.

My heat/ac will work, then it will stop working for a few days or weeks, then suddenly you turn the switch and it will come back on for a few days or weeks, then the cycle repeats. When this happens nothing on the dash will light up or work. The rear defroster button will not function, the ac button will not function, the fan switch will not function. Nothing works related to this area.
2011 Chevy Malibu-fan went out, same problem as everyone else.

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.
