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?

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
