Heater/AC fan won't operate

1996 Buick Riviera. Heater/AC system works, but no fan. When you turn it on, you get some momentary low whining near the defroster ports at the windshield and then the system automatically shuts down.

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.
