slow speed on blower (96 S500)

hi all, recently the blower started acting up and would not come on then would go off. figured it was the regulator (had similar problem on a friends e-class). i got a regulator of e-bay (fraction of dealers price) and fitted it. blower now works without cutting out but i have no slow setting. With the display set on the first bar the blower runs as if it was on four bars. three bars is now the same as the old one on full speed. is this a faulty (cheap) regulator or is there some way of syncronising the speeds on the display to that of the regulator. any help appriciated.

seems like a faulty regulator, or you did not connect it as it should (but I thing there is no way to do it wrong.)

contact the ebay seller..... he is probably willing to send you another one, they don't like the negative feedback.
