    Default Blower motor only goes one speed.

    The blower motor in my 1977 Chevy C30 flatbed truck only goes one speed (it is slow) it doesn't change speeds whatsoever when i move the switch and it runs even while the ac is switched to off, if I bypass the relay it goes really fast so I'm assuming the problem is the relay.

    Any ideas on what might be the problem before I go out and buy a relay.

    Ordinarily, my gut reaction would be to say blower relay, but I'm not sure that's the case in this situation. When the blower switch is off, the blower should stop. Because it's not, I'm suspecting the blower speed switch in the cab, or a short in the wiring somewhere that's allowing 12 volts onto a blower control wire. Pull out your multimeter and probe around using the Haynes manual for determining what wire's for what.

    It was the switch I took it out and tested it with an ohm meter and all of the settings showed no connection but I manually connected the terminals on the connector the switch went into and I could change the blower motor from low to medium to high and figured out that the blower is always supposed to be on (about half the speed of low)




    Thanks for the help.
