blower motor on 1997 Ford Escort

The heater blows only on low. Is this the blower motor resistor?

Asked by for the 1997 Ford Escort
When the resistor fails, you normally lose all speeds except the highest speed. I would get this checked to see why you only have the lowest speed, it may be the switch.
What happens when you select a higher speed, does it continue to blow at a slow speed or does it stop working?
Hi, This isn't consistent with a bad resistor, but that doesn't mean it can't be the resistor. Since the symptoms are so odd, I would suggest you get this diagnosed. Let us know what you end up finding out!

I would check the A/C control before replacing any parts have it diagnose at a shop so you don't waste your money.
bretb: It stays at about the same speed.
There are 4 positions on the dial...let's say 1, 2, 3, and 4. Positions 1, 2 and 4 seem to blow at what should be 1 and position 3 blows at what should be 3 or maybe a bit lower.
did you ever fix your problem with the blower? mine blows on 1 and 2, but blows like 2 when on 3, and like 1 when on 4! could you please send any response to ? thanks!
actually no. however the other day it worked on high for about a day then went back. mine blows at the same speed whether it is on 1 or 4.
