Expert:  jeffrey590 replied 1 year ago.
Greetings JACUSTOMER, It is recommended to check the 40 amp fuse first before going any further. However, the most common problem with this symptom is either the fan speed resistor/controller or the blower unit itself. There are problems with the system building up a high resistance condition as the vehicle advances in age. This is mostly due to the blower motor which is an inferior part (cheaply built)..This causes a high resistance condition and in some cases burns out the speed control and the blower motor. If the vehicle has Automatic Climate Control it has a Fan Speed Control Module. If It has Manual Climate Control it uses a standard blower resistor pack. The parts are accessed by first removing the 5 screws which hold in the glove box and the 3 screws which secure the right side lower dash panel. once removed the parts can be accessed for testing. If you have a DVOM and would like testing information just let me know which system you have and i will be happy to assist you in checking it. But DO check the fuse first. If I can assist further please let me know and i will be happy to assist. Thank you, Jeffrey

Any ideas of the cost of rectification?

Expert:  jeffrey590 replied 1 year ago.
If the vehicle has ACC, module is about $200 USD and blower is approx. $300 USD. Allow 1 hour for labor costs. If Vehicle is equipped with MCC, resistor is approx. $70 USD. Blower is same price. Labor is same price also. Thank you, Jeffrey
