Air only blows when I push in the switch?

Asked by May 25, 2015 at 12:22 AM about the 2003 Kia Rio Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

first my air was only blowing in 1 and
4( the highest setting ) so I changed
the motor blower resistor. I noticed it
blew a little better with the new
resistor but still only worked on 1
and 4 for some reason I decided to
old the switch in on 2 and three and
it blew air fine until I let go of the
switch. What could be a causing this
and would it be an easy fix?

Sounds like the switch itself is bad. The contacts inside are worn. When you push in on the switch knob it makes good contact and the blower runs. HTH. -Jim
