Have to run the blower fan at high spped to get any air to blow on my 2008 ford escape
Sounds like a blower fan motor resistor. Fairly inexpensive part. It was easy to install on a Mazda I once owned. I/m not sure about a Ford Escape.
Is your escape equipped with a cabin air filter? If so when was it last replaced?
