Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Blower motor speed doesn't change when the a/c is turned on, speed is controlled with the knob on the control head regardless of mode, temperature or a/c.

If the blower motor is running slowly it could be the motor, a wiring or connection issue, the blower motor power module, or possibly the control head. A control head issue isn't likely.

The first thing I would recommend is checking connections at the power module, which is mounted on the bottom of the heater box on the right side. If the connection is burnt then replace the power module and connector.

If that doesn't appear to be an issue then power and ground to the motor can be load tested, and if ok then the motor can be condemned.
