SOURCE: location of blower resistor

The 96 LeSabre Custom and LeSabre Limited use an electronic module in place of a blower resistor.
It is under the hood on the firewall on top of the heater plenum, but below the relay rack.
They tend to short and run on high until the module burns out and then it quits.
The same part is used on many high-end GM cars from 92 to 96. The electronic module has two connectors on it. (If yours has only one plug it is a real resistor pack and not electronic.)

SOURCE: location of blower resistor

The resistor is located on the blower housing on the firewall under the hood under the relay center boxes.

SOURCE: change alternator belt on 1996 buick riviera

The 96 Riviera has a motor mount that interferes with the removal and replacement of the serpentine belt. The motor mount must be loosened and the engine need to be lifted slightly to accomplish the replacement. Not good engineering on this model year.

SOURCE: A/C Heater blower fan does not cycle through all speeds

Yes it is the blower Motors Resistor board. It is up behind the blower motor, just under the glove box. You have to remove the black KICK panel with its two "Push Pins" that will break too. There are 3 screws holding that resistor board in, the back two are a bear to get to. Good luck.

I Have a 1998 Buick Rivera Blower does not blow i have power to the relay under the rear seat i have pulled the blower motor. by passed and motor fine no power to fuse left side of dash is there a rel


Not sure hat rely you are checking but the blower motor does. To have a relay in the rear fuse block. The fuse you're checking protects the HVAC computer. The HVAC computer uses that circuit to monitor the voltage going to the blower motor.

The most likely problem is the blower motor resistor, aka blower motor module, blower motor speed control. It is typically located near the blower motor. The red wire is power from the battery and should be there all the time. Black is ground. Purple is power to the blower. Grey/black is the speed input from the HVAC module.

How do I get to the blower motor on a 1984 oldsmobile toronado?


Your Buick Riviera's heater fan is powered by a blower motor, which in turn is powered by a blower motor resistor. The resistor is a small electrical component that also regulates the fan speeds of the blower motor. Like any part, the blower burns out from time to time and has to be replaced. Replacement blower motor resistors cost about $50. It will take you about 30 minutes to install a new one in your Buick Riviera.

Things You'll Need

  • Socket set
  • Screwdriver
    • 1

      Open the hood and disengage the negative battery cable on your Buick Riviera using your socket set. You will need a 10mm socket to loosen the battery cable bolt.

    • 2

      Remove the plastic trim panel under the glove compartment on the passenger side of your Riviera.

    • 3

      Loosen and remove the mounting screws that hold the blower resistor in place on your Riviera.

    • 4

      Unplug the wiring harness from the old blower resistor and then remove the resistor completely.

    • 5

      Plug the wiring harness into your Buick's new resistor. Also tighten the screws to hold the resistor in place.

    • 6

      Reattach the negative battery cable on your Riviera and tighten it with your socket set.

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.

Where is the blower motor resistor located on a 1983 buick Riviera with a 307-v8.


Hello jameskoehler; my name is Roger and I will help you. You can locate the resistor by looking at the firewall. Locate the evaporator case halves. The right half should have the resistor located in it.the wire harness going to the resistor should have 4 or 5 wires in it. The resistor will be held in by two 5/16 screws and located on top of the evaporator case. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Check the heater blower fuses first. If you have an owner's manual, it will tell you where they are... Might be a bad switch. Try the easy stuff first before you ripp into the dash panel...Good Luck

Air conditioner/heater blower fan on 1997 Buick Riviera not working. Regardless of whether it's on ''Auto'', Vent, Recirc, or Front Defrost button setting, even though I can see the fan level meter going...


it will be hard to diagnose with out having my hands on it but try this.

this vehicle is known for blower motor resistor failure.

under the dash on the passenger side next to the blower motor there is a resistor attatched to the blower motor case it will have a single plug with 5 or 6 wires in it, they are normally within a couple of inches of the blower motor, remove this resistor and look at closely for any signs of burning this is a common problem, you can buy one at any parts house, do not operate the motor with the resistor removed from its mounting hole or you will damage it.

if the resistor looks good than purchase you a test light and drop me a line and i will explain how to test the entire system its not hard to do.

1996 buick riviera blower motor will not shut off


The blower motor control module needs to be replaced, that will solve the problem. The module is underneath the hood on the firewall in the back. It has 2- 6mm screws. Unplug it, pull it out, put the other one back in. Plug it in. This is common for this model buick.
