Heater grinds when on or squeeks. Sometimes I can turn it off and then it will be ok for a few.

    check your blower motor getting weak, check/replace your blower resistor.

    Thank you. So you are saying that the resistor will cause the first 3 setting not to work... as well as blower? Are they easyish.. to fix. I have worked on cars before. Would I just need to purchase a manual or download a manual? Just not sure how to get to it. Under hood or through dash. Guess I need to investigate more myself. It just happens to be very cold out side.

    I agree with #1 if it is squeaking then your blower is starting to seize up which would probably cause your resistor to burn out

    if your fan only works on high, then the blower motor needs to be replaced
