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.

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.

My 2003 chevy malibu a\c is working but it don't blow out much I have it on 5 but it seem like it's not blowing hard like it suppose to do
My air keeps shutting off by itself it will not stay on running
Dealer could not find problem. I am doing research myself.

No air comes out I can hear it trying to come on someone put a music system in my car and since then it's only worked one time it kicked on out of the blue
Still doesn't work if it's turned 1,2, or 5
Purchased a new resistor at Auto Zone for 21.59 (includes tax) and replaced ourselves.
Car only blow heat when trying to use the air conditioner.
