You mean the fan does blow right away? Could be the fan motor. Does it ever not work? If so it is located under the dash pass side, remove plastic shield and tap on it to see if it comes to life

If you turn it on it will blow out a little bit but then it will automatically just start coming on all the way one time we went over a big bump and it came on full blast

Sometimes when themotors are going out they get sticky like that. Remove the shield under the dash on the passenger side and find the motor. When it doesnt turn on, tap the bottom of it with something and see if it comes on. We will start with the usual problems and go from there

Thank you so much for your quick reply I will let you know if I have anymore problems or if that resolves the issue. If not do I need a new blower motor and does it have a relay?

I dont see any relays in the system. Most likely will be the blower motor, but check the resistor too, it is located next to the blower motor, follow the wires back to it. The resistor controls fan speed, it may be shorted too

Is this an automatic system or manual? The resistor is called that, a resistor or fan speed controller if it is solid state
