Blower motor speed control switch not working 2 and 3, only low and high only working. Jumped out wires at speed switch connector, all speeds working. Replaced switch, still not working. New resistor installed. Doesn't make sense.

Welcome to the forum, Joe! You are correct, that doesn't make sense. There isn't much between the switch and the blower motor and you replaced that. There really isn't anything else to change. I would have bet on the resistor to resolve the issue. I guess it is possible you got a dud, but not likely. When you say you jumped the wires at the switch, did you use the ground wire in the harness, or just find a bare metal spot?

Welcome Joe, Glad you found us. Have fun and enjoy FRF. Sounds like a bad wire connection.
