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.Google+

only works on high, if you leave it on anything but off or high you can hear a weird noise every couple seconds like something is trying to work. not fixed yet.

Same..the blower only works on high. Good heat, just can't reduce. My daughter is hard of hearing, and it makes it difficult when she can't turn it down to hear a conversation. Very annoying!

The first two speeds quit working on the blower so I only have the upper speeds, which sometimes are to high for my newborn.

blower stopped working and intermittenly works at a very low speed. Resistor pack was not the problem. We are still trying to figure out what is wrong.

First two settings have never work and I have had my car for over 11 years. I just figured the settings were for other models of oldsmobiles.

The only settings that works are 1 and 5. The blower motor resistor goes bad a lot.

Only the two highest fan speeds work.
