The 1992 was prior to Buick putting cabin air filters in so there is not a possibility it is clogged. So more than likely your blower motor is going bad or your fan control switch is bad. Does this problem occur with heating as well as AC? Does it change if you switch between blowing on floor, face, window(defrost) If it doesnt change based on location of blow and type of air temp then I would start by turning fan on high and placing head (ear ) against dash in center of console area. Have someone turn fan knob from low to high with engine OFF...After goign from low to high and back a few times you can see if the blower motor is responding to signal from switch. Listen for a whine, squeal, rattle, or humm. A whine or Humm would indicate a bad blower motor... Squeal or rattle a bad squirrel cage/fan blower blades. If you hear no noise and no perceivable change in blower speed/noise then its possible your switch is bad. Unfortunately the only way to definitely diagnose either is to pull the switch from dash and use multimeter to test for voltage change and for blower motor to pull dash. There is a digital control unit for your car as well. Although rare sometimes the wires on this can loosen or it can go bad. But since you didnt state teh fan wasnt working at all and you are getting cool air, that woudl be teh last thing to check

My A/C used to blow out very cold and with lots of force at the vents, now I get cold air but you can barley feel the air coming out of the vents. The fan sound like it is on high but very little airflow....


It sounds like you have a blend door issue.Try cycling the air to blow on different parts of the cab ie: defrost,to floor to vent.if you have cold air blowing good on all selections and you know your motor is working on all speeds,then you have a blend door not opening.The control for that is behind the heater/ac control unit.They do go bad from time to time.You can pick up a replacement at either a dealer or a Auto Parts place that sells GM or AC DELCO parts.

My 96 Sedan DeVille Climate control system will not toggle between Econ and Auto Modes. It will only operate in the Econ Mode. The Auto Mode lights up when I push the button but immiediately switches...


This usually means the ac refridgerant is low. In Econ mode the ac compressor will not turn on, your car is staying in Econ to avoid damage to the compressor. If you are low on refrigerant it means you have a leak. Don't just buy a can and refil, have a professional shop check for leaks and fill the system with the proper oil and add refrigerant to the proper pressure.

The fan for the heater/vent/AC is stuck on high and remains running when the vehicle is shut off. I am able to switch from vent to heater to AC to defrost, but the fan always stays on high. This is a 95...


Does this have auto temp control where you set the temp number or does it have a knob you set 1-5. I'll bet you have auto temp. and you need to replace the blower control module under the hood.

The information center reads "very low freon" and "ac compressor off". this happens whenever you press the auto button on the climate control panel. On the climat control panel when you press the AUTO...


You'll need to have the A/C system serviced. It is low on freon so the compressor isn't coming on, and you won't have any A/C. Usually you'll just need some freon.

I have a vw bora 2002 model... the radiator fan for this car starts as soon as i start the car n stops when i shut the car.... can you tell me why is this happening


Your AC compressor is activated via Climatronic control. The system regulates inside temperature activating the compressor or opening the flap from the heater core. This will be automatic when you set the temp you desired inside the vehicle. Unless you see the words ECON on the right side of the LCD display, your AC compressor will be engaged and the rad fan will operate to prevent the engine from over heating. Press ECON until you see it displayed and it will disengage the compressor and use only the interior blower fan to regulate the inside temp by opening the outside air flap and not from the AC.

I have 2001 Volvo S80 and the heater and AC comes on for a minute or two and then shuts off. The dealer said it was the blower mower burned out. How can that be if it works now and then?


Assuming that the dealer is correct and isolated the problem down to the blow motor...
it IS possible for the motor to work intermittently due to heat buildup. Malfunctions due to heat will call the motor to run fine for a bit, and then quit when the motor reaches a high enough temperature to cause a malfunction. It would then quit working until it cooled back down, and repeat the process.

Whether is it just dead, or it is intermittently dead, for all intensive purposes, the motor is no longer usable and needs to be replaced with a new unit.

No air conditioning, flashing climate light


You should make sure you have proper charge for sure.has your battery gone dead lately? I know on some of them digital climate controls will act exactly like this and have to be reset or go through a setup sequence.

AC fan speed


i had this same problem in my chevy prism-- my fan regulator had broken. (apparently it usually happens around 100k miles, i hear) in my car, the vents wouldn't even blow air at all on anything but high--- not just AC, but normal vented air as well.

cost about $80 to have the problem fixed by my mechanic in Jersey. hope that helps!
