Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

What's the brand and model number of your unit?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I don't have the model ss# but the blue terminal is on heat the black is on cool the orange is on low heat and red is on park I'm not home right now I had to leave because of an emergency
Expert:  Rick replied 3 months ago.

There should be a wiring diagram pasted to the back of the blower compartment access panel. It should call out the color of the fan leads and the associated speed. You just need to swap the leads for a higher speed.

I can't just switch the wires on the control board
Expert:  Rick replied 3 months ago.

That's how you change the fan speed

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
You can't tell by the color codes I gave you
Expert:  Rick replied 3 months ago.

Not without a model number. They should be called out on the wiring diagram for the unit
