SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Air conditioner/heater blower fan on 1997 Buick

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.

SOURCE: How to replace under dash blower motor 98 Buick

The blower motor is vertically mounted below the glovebox on the passenger side. To replace the motor, follow these basic steps. It's actually very simple when you figure out how to contort your body so you can work on it.
You need to remove the bolster cover under the glovebox. To do so, just slowly pull the bolster out from the sides of the passenger side until you come to a plastic, one way connector. (Kinda looks like this -->) |>>>> They are ribbed and impossible to pull out. Take some wire cutters or diagonal cutters and clip the plastic connectors. They are cheap connectors that you can buy for $0.50 a bag at any auto supply shop. When you work your way through the connectors, remove the bolster and the blower motor cage should be visible. It will be lodged behind a mass of wires, and you won't have much room to move in. Look/feel for an electrical connector on the back side of the blower motor and try to seperate that first. If it is too tight, take off the mounting hardware first and see if that gives you more room. There should be three or four nuts securing the blower motor to the base behind the glovebox. Remove these and the motor should simply fall downward. You will have to adjust the wiring to pull it entirely out, but it shouldn't take long. Simply wiggle the new one in the same way you got the old one out. There may not be the same number of mounting screws or they may not line up exactly like the old ones, but it should fit in a particular position. Try rotating it.
When the motor is back in and the screws are back. Test it out and try all the speeds. If everything is working. Take an old plastic connector to a autostore and find matching ones. Reapply the bolster and snap some fresh connectors into the holes. That's all there is to it.

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.
