No. You need replace the blower motor resistor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gz_88VvQVGU

No ... The motor has a "Resistor" for every speed. Resistors control how fast the motor will go but over a long period of time they burn out ... usually one at a time. Yours are probably inside the duct close to the motor ( Google "S 10 blower resistor location" ) it will show you where they are at, Good luck

You might want to check the switch first... and if you are getting heat from the blower on low and medium speeds, I would just go with that for now. After the truck warms up, you will most likely lower the heat anyway! Let us know what you decide, ok?
