Fan levels 1,2, and 3 not working

I have a 96 z3 and for as long as i can remember, my fan levels 1-3 do not work. The only one that DOES work is fan speed 4. Does anybody know what i need to replace or get fixed?

Resistor pack, put in the last 7 characters of your VIN at realoem.com and it'll show you what you need.
