Fan Speeds Not Working On Chevy Malibu

I'm writing for a friend, that has a 1998 Chevy Malibu. On her HVAC controls, fan speeds '1' and '2' don't work.

I know that this is a common problem with 1997-2002 Chevy Malibu's, but don't know what the problem is, what the solution is, and how much it would cost to fix the problem.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Aside from the MVAC controls, you should find the same problem in heater mode. Your resister stack is bad. I don't know where it is located on your model. But it's an easy repair and probably a dealer only part.

I agree 100%. The blower motor resistor is located on the passenger side, under the dash. You need to remove the closeout panel, under the glove box. Look up in there and you will see the blower motor, and just over and off to the left you will see the blower motor resistor. There are 2 or 3 screws that secure it to the heater box, they are 5.5mm (7/32). Easy task for the DIY'er .

Oh, you will also need to disconnect the connector at the blower motor and the connector at the resistor.
