Q: Blower Motor - No Heat on 1993 Buick Roadmaster

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Blower has stopped infrequently over the past year, but daily for 2 weeks now coming back on occasionally until 1 week ago. Now no forced air at all. No funny noises or odors, and I've been told it may be a relay.

Any suggestions?

Funny odor and no fan operation may be either of two things, if it smells like burning plastic the motor may have burned out if it smells a little more foul a rodent may have built a nest in the air ducting or motor itself (see it frequently). There are 3 bulletins from Buick having to do with heater fan motor, odor and insufficient blower air flow (heater door in heater housing issue takes about an hour to fix). Blower motor remove and refit new motor takes about .7 to .8 hour. Blower motor resistor takes about takes about .5 hour and the part is about $35.
Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website .There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. or try and get an online repair manual subscription.
