Default blower motor not working all speeds?

I have searched and think I have the answer but will give up the facts here and see what people think.. My AC/Heat blower motor will only work in high speed for AC (no med (2) or low),,, High and med/high for heat (no med/low or low). With the blower motor resistor unplugged I get only high for both..

I replaced the resistor but no change.

If the blower motor relay was bad the fan would not work at all right..?

So I am thinking I have a bad switch.. When in high speed heat I can wiggle the **** and make it switch between med/high and high speed or even cut off..

Just want your opinion on what else it maybe or just confirm that it is a bad switch from people that may of had the same problem...? thanks for the help guys

The only place to find a switch would be the junk yard or dealer.. I've searched because I thought mine was bad as well.. turns out my blower motor was bad and kept screwing up the resistor.. so I replaced the blower motor and resisiter... not saying it will fix your problem.. but I'm just letting you know it could be hard to find the switch
