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.

The air conditioning fan on my 1989 oldsmobile toronado trofeo with automatic temperature control doesn't work. The AC puts out cold air but the fan doesn't blow it into the cabin.


I assume you checked fuses for condition and power to and through the fuse to the fan. Locate the fan motor and check for power and ground with a volt ohm meter. Check for continuity thru the motor t make sure it is not bad.

Fuse box location, heater fan not working, fuse?


Check 30A fuse 3 in the right underhood fuse box but also the blower relay, the blower switch, the blower resistors, the mode switch, or 25A fuse 5D in the I/P fuse block could be at fault.

Jump it off then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, shoul read approx. 13.8v when running. If less the altenator is most likely bad not charging the battery. If it does read approx 13.8v replace the battery.

The fan on my 96 oldsmobile 88 will not turn why?


Barring the simple blown fuse every time my fan has quit working on all my cars it was one of the following. 1 the bearings went bad in the fan and the fan became sticky. you can tell this by rapping on the fan motor itself while it is turned on, if it starts then it is sticky and doesnt have long to live. 2 the motor burned out completely you can tell this by applying 12v from the battery directly to the motors contacts in the proper polarity + to + - to - . If you are not sure how to apply power to a motor to test it you might want to have someone that knows how do it for you. if it doesn't run pretty good sign the motors dead. 3 there is a fault in the wiring and you would use the test for #2 to determine the motor is still good then start checking the wiring and switches. I usually check in the following order, glance at the led embedded in the AC switch on the AC console to make sure the unit has power , rap on the fan housing because its out in the open on the firewall under the hood and im lazy, check the fuses just for the heck of it even though the AC unit LOOKED powered, curse a bit, apply power to the motor to test it. I have only had 1 car with mysterious bad intermittent AC wiring and 1 car with a bad switch the rest were all motors that went bad.

Most likley your blower motor has a "dead" spot in it when you hit a bump it jars it to work. Replace the blower motor.
