1996 buick riviera heater blower won't run. I jumped the motor and it runs. Turn on the switch and it won't run


you have a piece of solder broken off the controller of your hvac unit, causing power not to get to the blower motor it self. take test light and see if you have power at the blower motor. check and see if you have continuty or brake between the power wire at the blower motor and at the hvac control unit. if wires are good then the problem will lie in the hvac control unit. check and see if the blower is working at all speeds, if it works on some speeds thens the blower motor resistor.

In my 95 buick riviera, i got a fresh battery to car, it wouldnt turn over , but has to be done with a jump.... have anyone had this problem before? how can i go about trouble shooting it?


I would go through the steps starting with the battery, is it good? Just because it is new, doesn't mean it is good. Check the voltage, 13.5 minimum, water, electrolyte, if all is good, check the terminals, they have to be squeaky clean and tight. Check the cable on the starter, if still nothing, get under the car and whack the starter with a hammer, It could be the solenoid. Hope this helps.

'95 Buick Riviera, SuperCharger. Car won't Start up!


unplug the cam sensor behind the water pump pulley; see if it starts; if it does, shut off engine; replace both cam and crank sensors because crank sensors go out in these engines

Where are the auto running light relays, they wont shut off even with the keys removed,i have to disconect the battery to get them to shut off


The headlamp wiring is protected by a circuit breaker. An electrical overload will cause the lamps go on and off, or some cases to remain off. If this happen, check wiring right away.

For FUSE and RELAYS descriptions, check the 1995 Buick Riviera - Owners Manual (page 266 and next).

Hope this help (remember rated this post).

My buick riviera wont stay started


Mine did the same thing, it apparently was the mass airflow sensor, however the computer module also had to be replaced. It runs fine now!!
