Hi there good morning to you and sorry for the delay
Ok the fault lies with a faulty heater resistor (rheostat )
This supplies a variable earth to the blower motor for speeds 1,2&3
This is located in the passengers footwell on the heater box and is secured on by 1 screw and takes minutes to replace
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

Hi there
Ok you can fit this without taking any panels off but most people remove the passengers lower nner centre console dash trim at passengers footwell (1screw)!or just pull it back to give better access
The resistor has 1 multiplug on it with 4 thick wires going to it
Kind regards ***** *****
