Could be the high speed relay.......located on the evaperator box....passenger side. Still on my first cup of coffee, but seems like it has a 3 prong plug going to it from the under side along with a single prong also going to it from the under side. I have a pic stashed somewhere.......will post if I can find it.

Here's a pic of the relay with the 2 plugs (4 wires) disconnected. The relay is just my first guess.....
Hope this helps.

On my '72, the odds are for that pesky 30 amp fuse in that stupid white fuse holder, located just aft of the horn relay/power dist tie point on the drivers' fender liner, it's the high speed fuse going directly to the relay...the holder gets corrosion in there, heats the fuse ends, melts the solder in the fuse, fuse looks good, but it's not....fought this on many a GM car...MY cure for my '72 here was to skin the wire ends, and put under a 40 amp circuit breaker type fuse with screw terminals...you could wire in a 30 amp mini fuse, and be much better off with the attendant rubber holder, either one is fine....

but replaceing with another white factory type fuse holder has proven futile over time, for me...

go figger, must the the new one aint worth a damn....dunno....

:crazy: :crazy: :surprised :cheers:

Ummm.......yes, forgot about that inline fuse. Probably be the first thing to check. I think it's on the heavy gauge orange wire from the main junction block on my 74.

I had the exact same problem 3 weeks ago. Hi blower not working, all other speeds OK.

With a little help from TimAT, I replaced the High blower relay... As it turned out that relay was bad. Went and got a replacement and all systems were go.

High blower relay is $11 at O'Reilly.

Yeah, check that relay but also check the blower motor resistor ,(ecklers # 27260) its mounted up on top of the case in front of the passenger (under the hood tho) it has those curly looking pigtailed hard wires that give you the different speeds, they are known to go bad by burning out which is very visable once you unbolt it from the evap. case. Good luck, Peace,,,Moosie :buhbye:
