Question about 1987 Buick Riviera

1 Answer

Battery change Hi, I just changed the battery in my Buick Riviera. Now, the air conditioner nor the heater will blow anything out. The computer shows that they are on, but nothing comes out. In addition, the radio will not work. We have checked the fuses and nothing seems amiss. The computer shows that there is a problem in various areas and to get the vehicle serviced. It is is an easy solution, I would rather do it myself or have my husband do it. Thanks, Tiffany

How to reset climate control for the heater and ac on a 1996 buick rivera

Did you check to see if coolant is getting to the heater core? Most reset to default when the battery has been disconnected.

Heater won't work after changing battery

Check your coolant level. The changing of the battery may not have anything to do with the heater not blowing hot air (I assume that is the problem? air blows but no heat?).

Blowing cold air via the heater

Assuming that none of the Electrical/Electronic controls were disturbed when changing the Thermostat it seems to me that you have an "Air Lock" within the heater. One must purge all the air out of the cooling system as close to the highest point as possible after the system has been partially or fully drained. Most of the time one will find small BRASS Bleeder Valves located somewhere near the highest point. Open each one while the system is pressurized and let Air escape until some Coolant escapes. Sometimes it may be necessary to loosen a Heater Hose and bleed the air at that point. Remember that the system MUST BE PRESSURIZED to accomplish the Bleeding of Air. Many auto parts stores sell hand pumps with a pressure gauge for this purpose and leak testing. These pumps typically replace the Radiator Pressure Cap temporarily. The system does not have to be at normal operating temperature to bleed the air out. Once the Air has been bled you will have to refill the radiator to normal full and make sure that the Coolant Recovery Tank level is also brought up to recommended level. A quick check is to remove the Radiator Pressure Cap, Start the Engine, Rev the engine suddenly (A short Jab) and see if the coolant level falls rapidly in the radiator. If it does it is definitely an AIR LOCK situation.

Heater doesn't blow hot

I am assuming that your thermostat is ok. For a car of that age, the heater-core needs to change.

1998 Buick Riviera battery

Make sure that you have the ventilation tubing when replacing the battery. The car is designed to vent battery gases from beneath the car. Substituting a different type battery (without vent ports, a small hole that is located at each end of the battery ) or if you decide to use the battery without the ventilation tubing, you run the risk of an explosion. This is due to the proximity of the battery to the fuel pump, which is also located beneath the seat.Underhood batteries vent naturally into the air within the engine compartment. In your car there is a small hole in front of your battery that leads to the underside of your car.Your tubing is designed to carry the battery's vapors way and direct it out of your car through this hole.
