2002 Buick Century

I have a fan problem as the first two settings don't work. I believe the resisitor is going and I believe it is located behind the glove box. Please confirm the r &r on this .

I also have the master switch? on the driver's door that has intermittent problems. What is the name of the part and how do I remove and replace this?

Thanks, Brian

    I purchased the resistor yesterday and will try the install this weekend. I work in a school district and one of the Board members has a reputable garage, so I don't have much to loose. Thanks for the advice and I have the ibuprofen!!

The blower motor resistor is located on the back of the blower motor housing under the dash on the passenger side. It can be difficult to get at, but it is doable. Be ready with the ibuprofen the next day for your sore back. Remove the cover panel from beneath the dash on the passenger side. Unplug the power 'ribbon' wires leading to the resistor. Unplug the wires that lead from the resistor to the blower motor housing. There are usually two, one black and one purple that share the same plug. Remove the short hose that leads from the blower motor housing to the ventilation system ducts. Remove the blower motor by removing the three hex screws that hold it in place. Remove the resistor by removing the three hex screws that hold it in place. The resistor is right against the firewall so two of the screws are very difficult to reach. A slender flexible socket extension will make the job easier. Attach the new resistor in place using the same hex screws. Only 1 or 2 of the original three are needed (the part is very light) if you do not feel like fighting with the ones next to the firewall. Reattach the blower motor and reconnect the hose. Plug the power cable wires back into the resistor and the wire from the resistor back into the blower motor.
I believe the driver door switch just pops out if you pry on it, but not absolutely sure on this one.

I have a 2002 Buick Century which overheats when the car is not moving. I found out the cooling fans do not work with or without the AC on. I checked the 15 amy fuse listed for the fans and it was blown. I...


A blown fuse usually results from a circiut overload or short. First check wiring from fans for any breaks, rips or tears in wiring. Next with the engine off and cooled down, see if the fans will spin freely if you spin it. If they don't spin then they have siezed and the circuit is getting too hot. If they do spin then it is likely you have a short in the wiring.

Heater fan stopped working. Is there a fuse 1999 Buick Century


Actually there are 2 fuses. One is for the lower speeds and one is for High speed. Might be a relay, too. Check the owner's manual for the location. I believe the high speed one is under the rear seat.

They are located behind the right front headlights (passenger side). There is a bank of four relays mounted on a common holder. The four are for various purposes, one of which is to control the ac fan on the low settings. I got a bank of four used relays from and olds off of ebay. I plugged in the part number off the one I had into the search box to find it.

If a relay is bad, it will usually rattle.

Good luck!
