Blower motor only works on hi speed 01 ranger 3.0?

Most likely the resister is burnt out. When you use less than full blower, the blowerspeed switch shunts the 12v power though a resister to drop the voltage to theblower motor, slowing the blower speed. When the multi-speed resister is burnt out,it is, 'open circuited'. So no electricity can pass...
