check the dealership because they may be able to sell you a part to fix that problem. if not you can get a new heater control unit from dealer, autozone, etc. my dad has had the same problem. it is common for them to do that. i know on some hondas we can change a resistior to fix it but i don't know if jeeps are the same. resistor should be near blower motor. remove it and check to see if windings are broken. the highest setting does not have a resistor. bet thats what it is just don't quote me!!!

We have a Grand Caravan with the same problem. The mechanic told us it is a heater resistor box or something like that under the dash, we haven't fixed it yet. We just turn the temp down a bit with the fan on high.

More than likely your Blower Resistor is burnt out. It should be located under the right side of the dash, mounted in the heater case. It should have a 4-wire connector and should have 2 screws holding it in. The wire colors to the connector should be Dark Green w/Yellow Stripe, Tan, Light Blue, and Light Green w/Light Blue Stripe. When you get it out it will probably look like a small business card on the end of the connector. The more recent ones use a ceramic resistor now instead of the old wound wire type. I don't believe a new one is available from anywhere except the Jeep dealer.
