sounds like the speed reastat is bad, that controls your different speeds
I'm not sure where it is but it's prob close to the motor. what you want to do is find it then check it for getting power from the fan switch in all speeds, if you have power then the reastat is bad. if no power is coming to it then it may be the switch

of course you have checked fuses,, right?

Yeah I meant resistor, if the power is working to it at all speeds from the switch but not leaving it then it is bad
if there is no power then you have to back up towards the switch
also make sure your grounds are good, somtimes grounds can do weird things

The resistor is located underneath the dash, by the blower motor.
