Fan Speed Switch

I need a fan speed switch for my 2005 TJ. The only speed switches I can find are for 97-02. Did the switches change for 03-06?

I need heat in my jeep again it's killing me not being able to drive it!

You can order a replacement unit from rockauto for about $80. Replaces the whole switch panel.

Check out amazon. I got just the resitor part of the switch, or whatever it is, for 30 bucks and it was MOPAR/OEM. Fixed my heater fan control issue.

OK, but is it not working on any speed or just some but not all speeds?

Not working on any speed means the fan switch is usually bad if the resistor in the hvac box is ok. Mine went bad and had started to melt. You can find the switch for around $25 or replace the entire unit for around $80

I know it's the switch. I posted this thread to see where I can find one for an 05 or if 97-02 or 99-04 will work because those are the only ones I have been able to find.

The entire wiring was redone in '05 (new wire colors all around, and possibly different connectors).

I can confirm that the switch from an '06 is NOT the same as the pre-'05 version, as I gave my old switch to someone else on this forum and he said it was physically different.

Can you post a picture? I had a issue similar. I ordered a switch to fit an 01 and found the switch didn't match. I may have had an aftermarket control or a newer one in my Jeep prior to owning it. I ended up just buying a new panel instead of finding the right switch.

I'm at work I'll try to post a pic when I get home. Any other ideas other than the switch? The switch feels loose and almost slides from each speed if that makes sense and that's is another reason why I think it's bad.

Blower motors good, brand new resistor, I hear the compressor kick on and off when I move the position switch but just not blowing anything.

I'm sure you have but make sure it is not the knob just spinning on the shaft.
