My air conditioner fan runs only in the highest speed setting of the speed selector switch.
Would the problem most likely be in the switch, the fuses, or the moror?
Do you
have the same problem?

BLOWER RESISTOR
Unplug resistor connector. Using DVOM, check for resistance between resistor terminals No. 1 (Blue/Orange wire), No. 2 (Black/White wire), No. 3 (White/Black wire) and No. 6 (Blue/Black wire). See BLOWER RESISTOR SPECIFICATIONS table. See Fig. 4 . If resistance is not as specified, replace resistor and retest system.

Joe,

I have a 2000 Camry and began having the same problem earlier today. I smelled an electrical type burn like something shorted out and then realized the fan works only on the lowest and highest setting. I've had problems in the past with the dash lights behind half of the a/c control panel not working before so I thought maybe that entire switch panel was bad. What did your issue end up being and about how much was it to fix?

Thanks!

I gave up repairing the circuit myself. I figured out that the resistor needed to be replaced, but it seemed a bug job to find it and replace it. I had it fixed by the Toyota dealer. It cost $161.74

Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you. Engineers that design them should be forced to fix at least one of em!
