Vehicle is a 1992 Ford Explorer, Eddie 'edward' Bauer 4WD, 4 liter V6

Air conditioner pumps cold air; however, the blower does not seem to have a 'high' speed anymore, even on Max Cool. I have three of four speeds, not counting 'off': low, medium-low, medium-high, and what used to be the 'blow you out the window' high remains on medium high.

Fuses are good. If I understand correctly, a faulty resistor would lock the fan speed on high only. That's not the case. What am I missing?


Thanx in advance.

Fan switch or wiring would be my guess.

Isn't there a blower motor high speed resister in there? I'm pretty sure if the resister goes out the fan will still blow on the lower speeds.

Dakotas were infamous for this, I've replaced 2, looks like a similar part exists for yours. Try to find it and see if anything is burnt.

Thanks, I'll have to check out (as in find) the resistor module. I've been told the fan will only blow on high, or as you stated, on the lower speeds - from two different parts stores (Yeah, I know, consider the sources). If my guess is right, on mine the resistor would be on the side of the housing for the evaporator. ( ?? )

My 89 Dodge at one point had 3 of 4 of the lower speeds, but turbo was not available, it would just stop spinning.

This vehicle runs full blower motor current through the speed switch itself.

i found the contacts for 'highest speed' were burnt and occluded with carbon and the wiring insulation leading to the speed switch were burnt near the connectors.

I Still have the same switch, just cleand and polished the contacts, added a bit more spring pressure, and upgraded the wire size leading from fuse block to the switch and from switch to the resistor and blower motor. Now highest speed has even more 'turbo' as significantly higher voltage is now reaching the blower motor. It also used to blow 30 amp fuses regularly before this modification, now the 20 amp fuse never blows.

I would replace the resistor,mine lost some of the speeds also, I replaced it about 4 years ago no problems since.

Check the resistor first. Debris can accumulate in the evaporator box and cause issues. Losing some speeds but working on others is typically the resistor, but pull the blower motor too and clean everything out. I found burned leaves in mine. There were grommets to seal around the wiper arms and keep junk out, but not sure if they are still available.
