Question about 2001 Buick Century
One hot summer bight I went to leave in my car to find the battery was mysteriously dead. Next morning when it was jumped I realized that the A/C / heater fan was running and continued running when I shut the car off. At next stop I pulled fuse when I stopped the car. Then that problem stopped but very soon was followed by another problem--only the high blower would work. This continued for awhile until one day all blowers stopped. All fuses checked.
I also saw an answer for another model car that said something about a leak on the passenger side floor. This has happened and we have been unable to figure out where it is coming from.
I am living in ice covered NH and really need the defroster! Hope you can help me!
Your blower resistor is bad. It is mounted under the passenger side dash behind and to the left of the blower motor. These things burn out short out causing the fan to run constantly and then they just fry and shut down the fan. It is a hard little ****** to get to and you need 1/4 inch ratchet, 6 inch extension a 1/4 inch universal joint and a 5 mm shallow socket and lots of patients. LOL

Remove the passenger side kick panel using a Phillips head screwdriver. Pull the rug back from under the blower motor to allow enough room to drop the blower motor without the rug interfering.
Disconnect the electrical plug from the blower motor. Pull the rubber vent hose out of the blower motor.
Remove all the Phillips head screws securing the blower motor to the housing. Drop the blower motor straight down.
Install the new motor in reverse order of removal
