More than likely it is the blower resistor. High speed bypasses the resistor.

Have you checked the recirc door? The hinges tend to break and the door can block the passage cutting off the airflow. This happened on my '06 a few years ago.

Might help, might not. I was having issues with the control of my blower motor. I found a wiring harness under steering column and when i shook/moved it, the blower motor would start propperly working, i heard these get loose corroded all the time
