Did you replace the blower resistor as well?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I did not I thought that might be it but wanted to make sure before I spent $130 on it
Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.

That is usually what it is if you replaced the blower motor and still have that issue, Do you have automatic climate control, and a display with numbers representing temperatures on it? or is it manual with just blue/red colors on the selector?

Also, check ebay on the resistor, they are fairly inexpensive there. Let me know if you need the wiring diagram. Two wires come from the climate control module and go to the resistor if you have have a volt meter you could check them. I'm 95% your going to need a blower resistor however, provided all your fuses are good.
