Question about 1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88
I took the fuse out of the A/C slot (#7) in order to cold air from blowing in my face. I could not get the heater to work. The indicator lights didn't work on the display panel for the A/C, heater, fan, etc. before the fuse was replaced, but when replaced, the lights came on, but then I was unable to get the blower to work at all... except briefly when the Max A/C button was first pressed. It made a growling noise, but soon quit. The heater seems to be generating a little heat, but of course it is not being blown into the car's interior.
The indicator buttons feel spongey, and doesn't really "connect." Nothing happens - no heat, no defrost, no A/C. I can move the fan indicator from low to high, but other than registering the chosen speed, nothing happens - i.e. no warm or cold air blows.
I would like to know where the blower motor is located, and how to test to see if a wire has become disconnected. (i.e. to diagnose, and fix the problem myself.)
I would like to disconnect the auto-start/door opener that was installed in my vehicle, because whoever stole it, is playing with my vehicle.
I would also like to install new locks in the doors and in the trunk to stop the perpetrator from stealing contents from my vehicle - i.e. battery, gas, etc...
I don't have a service/maintenance manual with my vehicle. It too has been stolen. If I can purchase one somewhere at a reasonable cost, that would be great.
In short, someone has been systematically vandalizing my vehicle, and I want to at least be able to do some trouble-shooting myself before being forced to take it to a garage.
Thank you very, very much.
P.S. I have given you my work email address, but my personal email addess is firstname.lastname@example.org.

for the first problem, it sound as if the blower motor resistor has gone out. this is a very simple repair and the part does not cost very much. If you can locate the blower motor, the resistor should be on the left side of the blower motor.
for your second problem, it sounds as if the remotes need to be reprogramed.

You might try treating it like a computer...reboot. Disconnect the battery for 20 minutes and make sure the cell phone charger doesn't have a cell phone in it. Surprisingly enough, there was a guy years ago on the old Wrenchead.com site who couldn't reset the codes on an OBDI vehicle and later found a cell phone on the charger which was back feeding the ECM enough the codes wouldn't reset.
dont rate it until satisfied

It sounds like a thermostat.... $100-$150 repair shop.........$20 part if you do it yourself !
Go to an auto parts store and have them read your codes to determine why the Check Engine Light is on and to confirm any problems. Advanced Auto Parts will usually do this for free!
Did you check the fuses usually located under the dash on the drivers side or under the hood?

Before going crazy with this, check all engine and body grounds to make sure everything is connected. it's possible something was left a bit loose when doing cylinder heads. Wont hurt to go over the positive battery and alternator connections as well!
