A/C Only Blows On High Speed


I have a Nissan Pathfinder XE and the climate control only works on high. Any ideas?



Hello Charles

You mean the a/c blower motor only blows on high speed? If so, you probably have a bad a/c blower resister, which you have to buy from the dealer. Ask them to give you a print out of the location of the resister behind the dashboard, IF you want to try to replace it yourself. It can be a tricky replacement.

    Hey there,   Sound like you have a bad a/c blower resister for your fan speed problem, and probably a bad door jam switch on one of the doors for the  warning light and noise.
