Did it die or were you driving in hot temps as the AC drops out when the temp increases to reduce the load on the cooling system.

Check the fan resistor (possibly behind glove box). If there're no blown fuses, that's the next thing to check.

If that dies it should still work on full power as theres no resistance then

Not if it's the same as in a Nissan. Seems they're not simply a stepped resistor but with more electrickery included than that.

The fan in our Pathfinder would not go at all. Replaced the resistor and all was good.

My Nissan started by losing 2, then 3 went and finally 1. I pulled the resistor and found that circuit board was badly corroded. 4 still worked though.

If they get used a lot the small fan motor can expire, that has happened a couple times with my old Troopy, fan replacement is expensive, go to wreckers and get one and install it yourself, that was my remedy at Broome a few years back.

Thanks everyone,

I wasn't able to fix it on the road. Aircon unit started making a helluva racket and the belt was slipping so I took the belt off completely and just went without aircon for a few days. Not very pleasant as it was a hot few days over in the west. Anyway turns out the clutch in the compressor gave up the ghost and I have it in getting fixed as we speak. Appreciate the offers of assistance.
