SOURCE: My front defroster doesn't work
Their is a vacuum actuated valve that redirects the flow of air from the panel to the defrost vents when the defrost is selected. I would check the vacuum line running to the valve while the vehicle is running with the defroster on and check whether or not the line is pulling a vacuum to actuate the valve, if not you obviously have a bad line or vacuum line fitting. If you have suction on the vacuum you will need to check the valve and see that is functioning properly. The valve is usually located under the dash on the passengers side. If you are mechanically inclined i would go to a local auto part store and pick up a repair manual for your car for about $20 as they contain diagrams and info that will save you alot of money.

SOURCE: buick Century 2001 blower motor
Your blower resistor is bad. It is mounted under the passenger side dash behind and to the left of the blower motor. These things burn out short out causing the fan to run constantly and then they just fry and shut down the fan. It is a hard little ****** to get to and you need 1/4 inch ratchet, 6 inch extension a 1/4 inch universal joint and a 5 mm shallow socket and lots of patients. LOL

Sounds like the BLOWER MODULE located UNDER THE HOOD on the evaporator housing. Has 2-3 connectors on it . Used to see this problem on a regular basis. When this is occurring, tap the module and the blower will stop. Confirming need of replacement. Expensive part, but relatively easy to replace. Hope this helps

Look for the fuse for the rear wiper motor is a 15 amp mini-fuse , in location # 8 of your POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX in the engine compartment. Check in the PD BOX for; - relay # 8 is the rear wiper down relay , and - relay # 10 is the rear wiper up relay .
