    Just to be sure, do you mean the fan speed control? If so, the heater rheostat has the same symptoms when they fail (Only full speed works).

    the resistor in the manual heating console has gone, just happened to a friend of mine in her ford focus. go to any good auto electrician and they should be able to sort it.
    your car is just using on and off instead of resistance assisted heating. so 0 = off and 4 = on. 1,2,3 is activated by the use of the resistor

    was going to say it will be more likely attached to actual blower motor area. Had to do it on my mk2 golf & it was part of fan housing.

    thanks.

    i have located the resistor and upon testing it it appears the thermal resistor had foooofffed up.
    i have ordered one so i hope that will sort it (fingers crossed).

    i dont think there is anything else it could be, could it?
