06 grande punto

Hi , My wife has an 06 plate Grande Punto and the other day when she was thawing the car out to take the kids to school she turned the blower switch round to number 4 and the blowers went off. We have tried the blowers on the first 3 settings and they work fine , its just when you turn them to full power that they cut out all together. does anybody have any ideas about what this could be and if it is something i could fix myself.

Thanks Mark

Not had this personally, but have had a quick look around.....

If that is ok it could be the heater fan motor or the switch or the speed control resistors. Its a case of working through with a test meter.
