  • Nissan Maxima aircon

    If as I suspect the fan is not working on positions ‘one’, ‘two’ and ‘three’, but is working on ‘four’ it’s likely to be the power resistor module and the only one you can use is the genuine Nissan part. If it’s not working on any fan speed position it’s possibly a fuse, or the fan motor itself.
