Sounds like the blower motor resistor is shot, you'll have to have it tested or replaced

Its behind the instrument panel inside the blower motor housing, you'll need a test light and check each of the slots in the resistor(heres a pic) with the ignition key in the on position and the test light on a good ground, you'll test each slot as you are putting the switch on each speed.

This is the instrument panel insulator that you will have to remove first
