It depends on the problem. The system uses a programmer to control blend doors and the blower. The blend doors are controlled by vac and-or electric motors. When the temp flashes it is detecting a problem and may go into default mode.
You may need a scanner to access the body computer to diagnose it.
One of the blend doors is behind the glove box.

It's not a fuse problem. The controller switch is not working and needs replaced.

Ii had the same problem, fixed it temporarily by detaching the battery for a moment, this reset the blinking temp display. Nevertheless, the solution to the problem was filling the air condition up with coolant.

SOURCE: '96 buick regal- heater not producing warmth. fan

Check the temp of the heater hoses going into the heater from the engine in the engine compartment.
If you have a temp gauge on the dash does it go at least 1/3 the way up the gauge from cold in normal driving.
You can take a garden hose and flush the heater....both ways back and forth then reconnect heater hoses and check for heat.
But.....The # 1 cause of no or low heat is the engine thermostat.
It needs to close tightly to force the engine coolant through the small heater core.

Have a 96 Buick Park Ave. In Aug I changed the thermostat because the temp gauge showed the motor was running cold. nothing changed. In Sept I had the water pump replaced because it started leaking. M

Is your 3800 producing normal heat? If so, the temp sensor is probably bad...If not, try replacing the radiator cap...if your system has air trapped inside, it usually runs hot, not cold...the heat is the key to functioning properly for you...Your radiator is a 4 stage huge system that normally cools very well...if you have heat, I still think your temp sensor is bad...ask to see one at your parts store, will help you to locate it. Hope this helps.

Why does heater/ac on my '96. buick park avenue blow extremely hot no matter where the temperature cool/warm slide is set?

Those vehicles have 2 problems. The first is the temp rod clip breaks. Just lower the glove box door and look at the top with a flashlight. There will be a rod connected or should be. You will probably find the rod laying down on the case. Just go to your GM parts department and buy a new clip. Replace it and turn the heat on full and then snap the rod into the clip. The other fix is a "MAJOR" dollars. Usually the programmer on the side of the case, you will have to take it in for diagnostics.

96 park ave temp only gets 160 replaced stats twice

If the temp gauge is reading 160 when the engine is warmed up, the problem could be air in the cooling system, a faulty sending unit, or gauge.

96 Buick Park Avenue, heater wont blow hot air. How can I tell if it might be the thermostat or the heater core?

Start the car and let it warm up. After it is warmed up open the hood. Look for your top radiator hose, and see if you can squeeze the hose, if the hose is hard to squeeze, the thermastat is stuck shut. If your heater core was out, it would be leaking badly.

    92 buick park avenue won't blow hot air - temp control seems to be working

    Make sure there are no leaks and that the system is full to capacity. After the vehicle has warmed up check radiator hoses for temperature differecial also check heater core hoses. A significant difference in temperature may indicate a plugged heater core or thermostat failure

    1995 Park Avenue heater A/C tempature reading flashes

    one or more of your actuators is malfuntioning.  they ar eunder the dash.  I had a mechanic repair mine for about 400 bucks.  the dash needs to b removed and some very tight spots to work in.  the flashing is maybe caused from the sensor.  either outside air tempo sensor or inside. does it blink while showing the inside or ouside.  not exactly sure where the inside is, but the outside is in the center in front of radiator when u open the hood. black about the size of a tube of chap stick.
