HVAC switch for fan speed

Need an HVAC switch for the fans speed. My blower only gets faster when you put it on full-blast, settings 1, 2, and 3 all perform the same. PM me or post in this thread.

This is for a 2003 Ranger.

FYI - 99% of the time its not the switch, its the resistor under the hood by the blower motor

Sometimes its a bad connection where the springs are crimped. I have recrimped them and they started working. I probably have a switch if you need it.

Hmm.. I have another resistor pack that's brand new. I took it out yesterday, looked at it and put it back in. You think I should change them first?

No you can't . There is also a thermal fuse mounted to the resistor pack.The only way to check is with an ohm/continuity tester.
