Resistor pack first. Always check the easy things first. If you end up changing the blower motor out, you'll see why you check the fuses (you did ) and the resistor pack before tackling a blower motor change-out. If it has been running wide open for a while with no other speed working, that was the resistor pack failing.

BTW, welcome to the fest!
