The blower motor most likely is a poor ground from the motor that barely makes contact. If you can take the motor apart it's at the brushes end. Some people extend it with a copper braid wire. If you kick you foot up against the bottom of the heater case in the middle, does it start working? Or when you hit a bump?
The windows are controlled by various modules that talk to each other over the network. Do your door locks work? There's a main module in the driver's door that communicates with the other door modules. Some people find a poor connection in a braid of several wires running under the carpet under the middle of the driver's seat area. There's a connection which may corrode.
There also are several different fuses involved including under the rear seat and under the hood. The radio going off is part of the retained power and someone elsewhere just went through a diagnosis with it. I do not know if it's a part of your problem. I have not diagnosed one of these, but have read several people having done so.
Your rear window is the regulator which has a slide that moves up and down via a metal cable to move the glass. The metal cable terminates in a plastic part. The supplier gave them several which are defective and break that went into 2000-2002s the way it sounds. People take out their regulator and send them to places on Ebay or other sources which repair and return or do an exchange. I do not recommend Ebay, but sometimes they have what is needed.
If you set up your carspace email on your carspace page in the upper corner of this page which say's "my carspace" then send me an email at my carspace account which is my username in the title for this post with an at sign and carspace dot com. I'll try to help you find info.
#88 of 203 Installing a 3.8SC in my 2002 Bonneville
May 18, 2009 (4:42 am)
I am a longtime lurker to this great forum and I need your help.
I just put a 2001 3.8 SC from A Grand Prix GTP in my 02 Bonneville.
The motor is in and all that is left is the electrical and the front shaft connections.
I have a few questions and need some help if possible!
1. We are thinking we need to use the computer for the GTP motor.
2. The wiring harness( where it plugs into the fuse box, and the connection in the firewall-under the master cylinder is different.) The 02 takes a rectangular plug, and the one on the new motor is round.
Anyone have any ideas on how to proceed?

I found your email, finally. Check your mailbox. Pay special attention to the link about the connection under the front seat that can stay wet and is a junction between the modules in the doors. People have found that doesn't make contact causing things to not work because they can't talk to themodule in the driver's door.

I'm experiencing the same issue with locks going on and off while driving. Have you heard any reason why?
#91 of 203 security system
Jun 01, 2009 (5:26 pm)
i cant get car to turn over when i try to jump starer with screwdriver it turns over but wont do it with th key is there a way to disable the security system or reset it the keys have a chip on it and i was told it might not be reconizeing them any one out there who can help with this problem

This is an early solution.
If you put your key in and turn it to on and the security light flashes for 3 minutes and then resets to read a new key insertion, you either have broken wires in the column where the tilt flexes, the contacts that rub the chip are dirty (alcohol on key when inserted may help), or the contacts on the key are dirty (rub with pencil eraser).
When the system doesn't read the chip right, the lights on dash all come on, but when turned to start nothing happens. You'll hear fuel pump when key is turned to on. But injectors and starter are disabled for 3 minutes after you turn the key 3 times to start with a wrong resistance reading.
You can read your resistor with a meter, and match with the 15 choices in the link I posted. Buy resistors at radio shack for a series you solder together. Or see an aftermarket alarm place; they routined bypass these with resistor sets for alarms they install.

Jun 04, 2009 (6:36 am)
Had same problem with my 02. Was told by dealer whole unit would need to be replaced. Then one day another light was out on my dash, so I slapped the top of the dash and that light came back on. So I decided to try it on my stereo. I flicked the display with my finger twice and the light came back on. You might try that. It's a shame that vehicles have become so complicated and so poorly made.
#94 of 203 94 SSEi odometer issues~Super confused??
Jul 03, 2009 (2:58 pm)
My mom purchased her 94 from my brother last year. The car had issues with water leaking into the driver's side very close to the pedals. He assumed it was from the sunroof and taped it so it wouldn't leak and well you cannot use the sunroof anymore. That helped with the leaking, but it sat unused in a garage for a few years. The car however has been having issues with the dash. The odometer and the window that shows the little car icon (IDK what it's called) come on sporadically. The window flickers on and off but more so off lately. She cannot get the car inspected b/c of this issue. Before that, when the car would show up in the window, it would chime that the 3rd brake light was out(which is wasn't).
I am wondering where to even begin to look for the problem, is it a fuse or wire or both?? I'm thinking that the water had something to do with it.

I just changed out the a/c blower motor on my 2005 pontiac booneville. The motor will not come on. I found a field mouse lodged inside the old motor. Is there a fuse, relay or resistor that i need to check? The a/c compressor starts and stops with the switches on the dash. I have a newborn and gotta fix this fast.

Fuse #2 30 amp. rear block under rear seat. That may mean the original motor was okay and just swedged by a mouse carcass?
Check your connector under the dash for a burned contact or a contact that has unclipped and is recessed too far to make contact.
I am assuming your car is wired like an 03 leSabre. I checked the CJ2 diagram for auto temp control.
fuse #37 goes to the control, but you said the control is working other parts of the system.
On the blower motor connectors B and C are power and ground. A is a feedback to the control unit. You might use a fused jumper to see if you can apply power to the old motor and make it turn and then the new one.
