An ordinary manual blower speed control usually uses a tapped resistor. As you switch to slower speeds more of the resistor is brought into circuit. My guess would be that the first section of the resistor has gone open-circuit.
many thanks for ur reply m8,,sounds like a good place to start ! was looking on ebay and the resistor's seam quite cheap,,have you any idea where their situated on the car and how easy they are to change?,,many thanks...sime

My son had the same problem with his 1999 1.6 Focus. It turned out to be a faulty blower switch on the dashboard. We did manage to open up the switch to clean the contacts but it was very fiddly and only lasted a short while. A new switch cured the problem, I think it was about £15, John

hi, i have just joined the forum (should have done this yesterday!!!!) The very same thing happened to my 2003 1.6 focus. I had to travel 16 miles to have it checked out as the local dealer did not have an aircon tester. The local dealer is 1/2 a mile away. I was charged £140.15 for a new resistor to be fitted. The part only cost £9.28 ex vat. Does anyone know the complaints procedure for Ford dealerships? All they have on their website is an insurance complaints procedure.
hi ,the heater blower on my 2002 1.6 focus will only work on posistion 4 maxed out ! does nothing at posistions 1,2 or 3,,,any sugestions,,thanks sime....
