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.

1995 buick riviera 3.8 supercharged engine. Cold start issue. have to restart multiple times and it barely runs...spits back again and again until the engine warms up. once warm it runs correctly and...


Hello lysiphlebus2,

((My thoughts: cold START valve IAC at very bottom))

Plenty of places will do FREE diagnostic code reads.

I would rather suggest it be a muffler shop than
AUTOZONE... but either is better than guessing.

AUTOZONE will likely make you buy OXYGEN
sensors... (but that makes about as much sense as
buying a new THERMOMETER every-time you
have a FEVER.

What you are describing sounds (from an old
mechanic's perspective) like a collapsing
catalytic convertor or rotted muffler baffle
(a slightly better blockage will halt operation
completely)...

((again speculation... get your codes read))...

Do not buy OXYGEN SENSORS....

Know your prices before waltzing into any
exhaust shop.

'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).

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!!
