I know this car very well, it has been well maintained but: a few years back speeds 1,2, and 3 became inoperable. This past summer speeds 4 and 5 went out with the exeption of random operation only to quit seconds later. This has me second guessing everything I thought I knew. I replaced the relay and of course it didn't change a thing. The motor made no noises and operates too smoothly to be the culprit....? I'm stumped.
