I can elaborate on this also. I have a 1992 Oldsmobile Ciera with 157k miles.

The blower motor had been losing it's bearings for a while and really lost them about a week ago. I bought a new blower motor; installed it (which can be done by loosening the power steering assembly by removing a couple lower bolts underneath the power steering resevoir. One is a "double hex bolt" which a nut, then 3 ground wires, then another hex head which will remove this bolt.) Also you need to remove a stabilizer bar the is connecting between the p/s pump and the rear cylinder head. Removing these bolts should allow the power steering assembly to be moved toward the front of the car, giving enough clearance to remove the blower motor.

We installed the new blower motor, tested it, it worked, but the relay started clicking like crazy. It was the second relay from the left on my car; you can tell which one is for the blower motor by lookign at the color of the wire going into the blower motor and looking beneath the relay panel for the same colored wire (on my car it was purple).

We put it all back together, went to test it again and it wasnt working. We then went and bought a new relay, which restored the blower to working condition. 2 minutes after we left again, it blew the relay. We then exchanged the obviously faulty blower motor, and purchased a new relay, and the car was restored to 100% functional.


In this person's case, it sounds like they just need a relay, but I just wanted to elaborate to help get this information more readily available. I feel like it would have helped me if I had it before I tried this repair. (which we got down to about a 15 minute job after the 3 times we had to do it)

    Helpful,But I can't remove any relays. What is the trick? I pushed this little green clip thing on top of a relay and flew off ( lost it),still can't remove the relay off the firewall!

Heather not working


Any number of things might prevent the heater from working. Does the blower motor run? If not, it could be a bad switch, a blown fuse, a melted connector, a bad motor, etc. If the blower runs but there is no heat, it could be low coolant, a blocked heater core, a stuck-open open thermostat, an air-direction door that is jammed or out-of-position, etc.

The air conditioner wont turn off at all in my 1993 cutlass ciera


Replacing the AC blower motor resistor in most cases cures this problem. The blower motor resistor is located next to the blower motor and the connector is on the outside of the air ducting.

Heater heats but does not blow. Is the Heater core fused


So the blower motor doesn't work? if so check the link below.

blower motor does not work


Or the blower motor works but there is not very good air flow out the vents? If so it was pretty common on the older GM's for the evap core to leak and cause a bunch of debris/dust/dirt to stick to it causing airflow to slowly be limited as it became covered in dirt. Sometimes you can remove the blower motor and clean the evap core to regain some air flow.

Fan blower does not turn on I replaced blower, resistor and even a relay but does not work. So I ran a power wire from battery to resistor and it works what can be the problem?


The heater control,where you turn it on,and off,pull it out,it is most likely burned up where the connector attaches to the switch,and the connector,will most likely have to be replaced.

1995 Cutlass Ciera : Can check list to repairing power windows


the motor window is worn out which is common. You will have to remove all screws on door panel and then pry panel off. You will then have access to the motor. It may have soldered wires on it. Others can pull off, or you can cut wires up stream and twist back together later with new motor

No heat 1995 cutlass ciera


Ok quick fix........
This is a common GM problem. The heater will stop operating when the plastic vacume line is broken under the hood. It is an 1/8 inch black plastic vacume line running fron the intake manifold to a vacume check valve under the hood to the heater/AC assy located to the passenger side. You may also want to check the fuses under the dash to the blower motor. If the fuse is good take a Digital multi meter and check for voltage at the motor. If there is no voltage check the reistat in the blower hosing. It is a small rectangle plastic piece on the blower housing with two small screws. Check for voltage at the input and output side. If there is voltage check for resistance at the motor by unpluging the blower motor and probing the terminals to the motor. Tap the motor and see what type of fluctuation you get. Lastly if all that checks out and you have no voltage to the motor or reistat check the switch input and all three fan speed outputs. It could be a simple switch issue.
Good luck and let me know if you need further guidence.
