The fan that blows the heat/defrost has stopped working when on the lower speeds. If I turn it all the way up to the highest speed it will blow but really hard. How can this happen? Is it a tough fix?
By your description it sounds as if your blow motor controls may be faulty! I would have them checked to verify. This can be a simple relay.

The heater control itself usually causes this trouble. It is also possible the door that allows the heat to come in is broken. If there is not a lot of force (air) pushing on it, it does not open. WIth a lot of force, it does push through. Start by having the control unit checked. I believe this will be an easy repair.

It is probably a control module that has gone bad. You need to take it to a mechanc.

Hello Carol, This problem may have two causes--the first--and most likely--is a failed resistor in the heater fan circuit. The other possible cause is a bad heater fan switch or wiring. Hope this helps--Super Girls Auto

You need to replace your fan relay. This can be a fairly easy job if you know where it's located. Many times it's inside the vehicle on the front passenger side, but it varies from vehicle to vehicle.
If you can get your hands on a repair manual for your vehicle this may be something you can do. Good luck.
