1984 Fiero Electic Fan issue

Hi - after I had my fan assembly replaced with a Hayden 3700, I noticed that the resistor was not on the new assembly. I was told that it was not needed any more. The new fan was wired to the connector that leads to the fan relay (the resistor would have been between these 2 components) with a wire spliced in to ground.

The fan worked for a day or 2, then the ground wire burned out. BF temporarily wired to fusebox, which I don't like so I drive minimally. Do I need to replace the resistor again? If so, what are the specs for resistor and best place to buy OR what should I do now?

Thanks,
CAD

    That would be the radiator fan assembly

    So, help me understand - with the single speed fan that I have, the resistor is not needed? Or going back to a 2 speed fan w/resistor will solve the issue? Would you now the rating/specs for the resistor? Thanks for the info,

I would try to find the right fan setup the reason that resistor is there its really a speed control
at 185 the fan turns on low at 227 the fan then goes into high
i just went thue this on my 84

Why does my fan stay on when I turn off the key


What fan? Coolant or heater? The rad fan can stay on with the key off for a predetermined time depending on engine temperature if the computer requires it to do so

Mini cooper fan keeps running when key is turned off and enngine is not hot


The resistor on the fan is bad. You can purchase a new resister or buy a new fan assembly. Mine did the same thing and I just purchased the whole fan assembly and changed it out. to change the resistor, you have to take the fan assembly out. So I just changed the whole thing.

Blower motor will not shut off


I can't speak to the cost, a local dealer can do that. As for the reason the fan runs on, it sounds like either a stuck power relay (location should be in the owners manual) or a bad fan speed regulator. Since the fan is stuck on high, I suspect the fan speed regulator is bad. On some cars the regulator is part of the fan assembly, and on some it's separate. Also, there is a possibility you can repair the circuit board, assuming it's something as simple as a burnt out diode. Best of luck!

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.

The fan for heat/ac has gone out. Does dash get removed in repair work? For the last year the force control has not functioned as it should. Hi would be barely blowing sometimes. What would be the relative...


This may be just a blower motor (a/c fan) resistor issue. This resistor, depending on your vehicle is usually located near the blower motor. Remove the blower motor to locate it. This resistor controls fan speed, when they fail some or all fan speed may not work.

Heater won't go off


Hi,

If you're referring to the heater "FAN" running continuously, then its likely to be your blower motor resistor.

The heater blower motor (under the dash) has constant power supplied from the battery, but is controlled by the blower "resistor" - usually mounted on the blower motor assembly. If one or more of the blower resistor coil wires are faulty, the motor will either not work on one of the fan settings, or will constantly run by itself.

The heater fan on my 1993 f-350 has become really loud. I only have hi speed which I understand may be a resistor issue but how do I remove the fan and motor assembly to inspect it?


A heater blower motor resistor is an electronic device with three or more progressive resistors that allow the heater blower motor to operate at slower speeds. The highest speed of the heater blower motor is not controlled by the resistor, so when the resistor fails, the fan will often work on the highest speed setting, but not the lower speeds.
To resistor is generally located under the dashboard and under the hood, near the blower motor . The resistor's electrical connector is disconnected, the resistor is removed and the new resistor is installed. On some vehicles it may be easily accessible, and on others it may take partial dashboard removal to replace the resistor.
Look under the hood, generally the wiring for the Blower resistor is attached to the wiring to the blower motor itself
It's inboard & below the motor, near the accumulator. You can see it standing beside the passenger fender. it's the off-white connector behind the L heater hose above the vacuum reservoir & the white WARNING sticker
