My brother's 1996 caprice wagon's blower fan only runs on the high setting.

I distinctly remember this being an issue on the old 9c1.com website (that's gone too). I'm sure pre-data loss, this forum had info on it, but it no longer does.

Can anyone recall the fix ?

Thanks

It's the resistor pack, attached under the blower motor (just a few screws -- 3 I think, holding it on, passenger side under dash). The resistors corrode, until they are useless. Having it on the HI setting bypasses the resistors, so it runs. A cheap, easy fix. Part number 52455732 from any GM parts source.

Wirebrushed my resistor down and soldered it, works flawlessly now.

Blower motor runs on high because the High setting runs off a relay, not the resistor pack. Replace the resistor pack or try and soldier them.
