BMW Blower Speed High Only

March 11, 2010

Q I have a 1991 535i. The blower speed switch only works on High. It is annoying because if you want heat or A/C it has to be cranked all the way up on High. I was wondering what the problem could be.

A The problem of the blower motor only working on the high speed setting is a common issue with the older BMWs, with non-digital control panels. The blower resistor unit has failed. Replacement is generally straight forward and is covered in the Bentley repair manual.
