On my 2006 Dodge Ram 1500, my fan switch only has 2 modes now: off and high. On the low and medium settings the fan turns off. Do I just need to replace the switch or is there more to it than that?

My guess would be a blower motor resistor.

Any further tips for Tim? Which resistor would you think would be faulty? – Bob Cross Mar 6 '12 at 2:31
@Qadaemon Once I locate the blower motor resistor, what's the best way to test it out to make sure that is the problem? – Tim Mar 6 '12 at 15:09
Just changed the resistor today, that was it. Thanks! – Tim Mar 10 '12 at 23:41
