Customer Question
1999 land cruiser, V8...

1999 land cruiser, V8, 4.7 liter - the variable speed fan switch just went to "off or high" mode ... NO intermittent speeds. Is this an electrical problem or a bad switch? Please advise. Thank you

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Land Cruiser yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just inquiring ... try to repair myself, if possible.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

This problem began this summer and winter is fast approaching!!

Sorry about the wait. Did the speeds inbetween go out one by one or at the same time?

All at the same time.
Toyota Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,
 replied 8 months ago

The symptom you are experiencing is usually caused by a faulty blower controller.

Do I have the blower replaced or the controller repaired?
Toyota Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,
 replied 8 months ago

The controller is the problem. If a blower motor is faulty, the fan will not work at any speed.
