Default A/C works on high

I have a 2001 Ram 1500 5.2. A/C will only work on high. Can anyone tell me if this a switch, motor or resistor problem. Thanks

Id go resistor only cause high speed is the only one that usualy dsnt go through windings or capaitors to slow power output. Its usualy on its own so fan motor has full power. Also don't be surprised if plug might have melted on some of lower speeds from heat generated by the resistor its self. My dakota did that it sucked.

Thanks. Is the resistor located on the left side of the glove box?

Thanks for the help. Picked up the resistor for 49.99 and replaced it in less than five mins. I'm thinking a shop would have gone with all the BS and charged me 200.00 to 300.00.
