Hi all,

Went to get lunch everything was fine. Leaving Subway I got in the truck and right after starting A/C came on then immediatley died,..... i was like then . I fiddled with the control and found out it WILL only come on at highest setting (fan switch).

Any ideas? switch problem ? Fuse? WTF!!! i am in Arizona shyte!!!

Thanks in advance for any advice

Gunny

The exact same thing will happen if the spring in the speed selector isn't doing its job. If that's the case find the directions for dissasembly and lube up the selector spring and little metal switch pieces.

Most likely the blower motor resistor. See above link for more info. Seems this is a common failure on Tacomas.

If you want to test it, get a test light and check for power at the blower motor. If the resistor is good the test light should get brighter the higher the fan speed setting. If it only lights up on high the resistor is bad. High speed bypasses the resistor.
