Remove the console. Remove the ashtray/radio trim plate. Remove the radio. Remove the HVAC control knobs(they pull straight off)for the heater, air, fan speed, A/C button can stay. Pop the HVAC control panel face, pry or pull it forward. Suspend control panel face or let it hang. Disconnecting the control unit lamp makes this somewhat easier. Push the HVAC control unit back, lower it to the radio slot, turn it clockwise to make switch accessible. The switch is held in place by two ears on the switch and two clamps on the control unit body. Pull the clamps away from the ears only far enough to release switch while prying switch from control unit body. Any more than that will compromise the clamps' ability to hold the new switch. Do not pull the clamps too far away from the ears or they may not have enough memory to re-clamp. Remove switch, take care to get all the pieces, springs, roller pins, and the lever w/contact hat(3contact bumps)disconnect from wire plug. Inspect, clean, and replace worn parts or entire switch(the moving parts are all part of the lever). Use contact lube to keep pins, springs, in place. Replace in reverse order. If you pulled the clamps too far and they won't keep the switch together, there are two slots beneath the clamps that a small zip tie can be threaded through in order to tie the switch in place. I used a couple loops of mechanic's wire.

The first thing I'd look at is the switch and then the connections to the blower motor. Try bypassing the switch and see if the blower motor starts. Also, don't forget the fuse controlling the blower motor. Replace it with a fuse of similar size and see if that corrects the problem. If all else fails, just replace the blower motor unit with another. Go to the wreckers and you can get it for less than half price.

most likely it is your blower motor switch in your heater panel in your dash. the switch is burnt in the on position. replace switch from auto part store; if the switch keeps burning out it is due to the brushes in the blower motor being worn out. replace motor

Blower on your 2000 Grand Prix only works on high you have checked blower motor resister fuses and switch All ok What now?

Well it is apparent that all is not ok. The speed of the blower motor is controlled by the blower motor speed control switch and the blower motor resistor pack. One of those two items is your problem. I would bet the blower motor resistor pack is defective. The only way to know for sure is to replace it.
