Loss of One or More HVAC Blower Motor Speeds on Pontiac Grand Am

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 5th speed on the fan doesn't work. I tried replacing the resistor, fuse relay and switch. Still not fixed.

Fan motor speed 1 through 3 would not work. Fan speed 4 and 5 continued to work and we use the vehicle with those two speeds for over a year. Eventually we had the blower motor replaced.
