Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Sounds like you need to replace the blower motor. Also a good idea to replace the blower motor resistor at the same time, they are close together and the resistors are not that expensive.

I can send you the repair procedures from the factory service manual if you like.
