Buick Century 2001 blower motor

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

How do I change the engine radiator fan motors on my 2001 Buick Century?


  • 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.

  • 3

    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

My heater stop working suddenly on my car. It just stop working completely and all together ... Air condition and everything.... How can I troubleshoot the problem? It was working fine one minute and then...


I assume you mean that the blower motor quit running. Did you try it to see if it will run on any speed? If it won't run on high, but runs on the lower speeds, it is most likely a bad blower motor high relay. If it will not blow on any speed, it could be the blower motor fuse (In which case, you must find out why it blew or it will only happen again.) or the blower motor itself. Buick Century is known to burn the connector at the blower motor. There is a replacement connector available in the aftermarket to repair this. I personally recommend replacing the blower motor also if it is a burned connector because the blower motor is usually partially shorted internally, which is what causes the connector to get hot and burn.

98 buick century , with auto climate control ,


is it HOT or just not as cold. If its HOT, like heated air, there is a door problem, if its just not cool, the a/c refridgerent is low and will need a recharge, most likely the comp is leaking.
