Follow the wires from the blower motor back and they connect to the resistor. it should be about 6-12" from the motor located in the air duct. its held in with 2 screws/bolts.

Your blower motor is on the firewall side underneath that big row of main fuses. You have to remove the 10 mm bolts holding that panel to the firewall and it will pull forward.

As you are looking into the engine compartment from the front it is to the left of the blower motor.
Here is a diagram to help you find it.

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.)

There are actually two possibilities for your issue. First is the blower motor resistor as you stated as a possibility. The blower motor resistor is usually located inside the blower motor housing unless the blower motor is mounted horizontally and is accessible from the engine bay (which I do not believe is the case in your Buick) in which case the blower motor resistor is going to be located in close proximity to the motor.
The other possibility is that the ignition switch is going bad. Now, this may seem strange at first, but GM ran much of the power for the accessories through the ignition switch and as a result, carbon builds up on the contacts and starts to affect the operation of the accessories. However, I dont think this is the case in your issue as that is normally accompanied by issues with other accessories like the radio and such.
I think it is more likely that the blower motor resistor is bad in your case. I believe your blower motor is located on the passenger side, against the firewall close to the center console. If you contort yourself in a way where you can look at the bottom of the blower motor housing you may see a connector on the bottom, or a small access panel. If so, that is likely the blower motor resistor.
