Question about 1996 Buick Park Avenue
The automatic climate control on my 96 Park Ave has a periodic problem. It will get hot or cold just fine, but will sometimes not turn the blower on. When it worked right, it would wait for the car to warm up before turning the blower on when heat was selected, so I'm thinking that it's a problem with whatever sensor/switch/etc runs that feature. It doesn't matter what setting I select or whether I turn the climate control completely off and back on. Also, if the blower is running it will usually not come back on after I turn the car off even for a brief stop such as at a store.
I had the same type of problems with my 96 PA and went to the dealer with it to see what it would cost to repair. The machanic couldn't look at it for weeks but told me to disconnect the battery terminals and hold the two terminals together for thirty seconds. This dichanges all the capacitors in the car and allows the systems to reset. If you do this, don't have your keys in the car because sometimes the automatic door locks lock. Doing this fixed my heat problems immediately and that was two years ago with no problems since. No garantee but it worked for me and cost nothing to try. You will need to reset the clock and radio presets after you try this. Good luck, Paul
