Blower not working on 1,2

New person here. Got my 2000 ZX3 grandfather that used to be long to my dad. We pick it up and notice a few new issues from the time we last saw it. One of the bigger key issues is the fan does not work on 1, 2 settings. This means no A/C as well.

On settings 3, 4 the A/C and Recir works just fine.So looking at the forum the best I could tell it was the blower regulator. Went through the 2 hour ordeal to put a new one in. Long behold no change at all. So what should I try next.

This will be one of many threads to get the ole girl up before winter. I do not want my G8 GT out in the winter weather.

it is either the blower motor resister, or the switch my guess is that its the switch. When the reisister goes bad it usually will only work on high. since you replaced the resisiter the switch would be my next thing to change out.

No ideas? I would be shocked if I am the first person this happened to.

ahh, motodude696 posted right before I did, and the edit button for the above post doesn't seem to work.

Where can I find the switch, I guess the easy way to get to it. And hopefully my autopart store has a clue on what it is.

Are you sure, it's sounds more like the switch but it could be the resister but usually when the resister Dosent work it will ONLY work on high because that's the only speed that Dosent go thru the resister
