Itís the heater blower fan resistor, this steps the voltage to the motor down to govern the speed, but at 4 the resistor is bypassed to give the motor full battery voltage. I think the resistor is mounted by the motor.

When you take off the fan motor cover, there is a little brown plastic piece that has three coiled springs on it... pull them out and get a new one... I did and it works now!
