Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
I have checked fuses , put Freon into it checked the motor with a meter and it still won't run the dampers open and close but the motor won't run
The 97 is diferent from my dads '98 88 but on all of these there is a relay on the firewall to turn on the fan #3 from the left #4 should be for high speed on the '97. debris could have entered the fresh air inlet and jambed the fan. a bad motor may still show continuity on a meter. at this age you may need to check and clean all the fuses both kick panel fuse panels as well as the one on the firewall contain fuses for the ac. Your '97 model should also have an AC programer on the right hand kick panel with vacuum lines atatched that I know nothing about but I read a good posting about it with pictures just search " 97 olds88 ac programer" and follow the images if the relay and fuses and checking for voltage at the motors connector do not solve it . seems to me the programer failure led to the fan staying on but I just breezed that article as it did not apply.

If you mean the blower motor, do you have power and ground at the motor ?
