#2 of 88 A/c and Heater Will Not Blow Air
Jun 21, 2005 (9:50 am)
My 1998 Deville is such a cherry of a car. Recently though it was 98 degrees outside and my lady and I pulled up to the swimming pool with the A/C on high and it was working just fine. (Just had it charged a week earlier) After we got done swimming and got back in the car no cold air would blow from the vents? 134a canister still feels icy cold, I checked all fuses trunk and motor block. They are all good. And the climate control center in the cabin of my car still functions properly as well. I can still hear the doors open and close when adjusting temp from 60 to 90 degrees. Could it just be the Blower Motor Is burnt out? Cant find any type of fuse in the manual that controls the Blower Motor. PLEASE HELP GUYS. It is sooooo HOT out Right now.. Thanks!! Rich K

Like you, I cannot find the fuse either. I can't believe that this motor is not fused. Can't understand why this is a secret.

I recently purchased a 99 deville that had hot air only from the drivers side vents but cold air from the passenger vents and I found by accident through much research under the dash that an accuator was not functioning. On the passenger side I dropped the panel which is held by about 3 screws that the rod that opens and closes the the flap door to bring in fresh air was stuck in the open position and therefore only hot air would come in on the drivers side vents or defrost or even if switched to the floor. I disconnected the rod just by pulling it out of the plastic socket that holds it and pushed it and pulled it while keeping a hand over the center vents to verify if there was a difference in the temp as 1 is for driver and the other is for passenger and sure enough this was the problem. Since it was 2 a.m. when I found the issue...( I had to wait for the old lady to fall asleep since I purchased the car for her and she did not want me taking anything apart as she had already scheduled an appt with the Cadillac doctor for the following day) I took duct tape and wrapped the rod and pulled it closed and this worked for a couple of days as I took down the accuator and researched GM cars that had this model and saved a few dollars by getting it for a different chevy car. You may check and see if this is the problem. I also noticed that the blower has been changed out as under the hood there is a new metal patch above the blower and I have now read that the blower housing has to be cut out to be replaced. good luck.

I have a '98 Deville and the blower motor does not have a fuse or relay. If there is no air blowing, the motor is shot. I found one on the net at a used parts place and had a mechanic perform the install. It was relatively easy if you know how to lower the motor which he did from underneath. Removed the housing and placed the new motor. The private mechanic worked at a dealership for 6 years and confirmed there are no fuses.
#6 of 88 1995 Deville--driver side heater blows cool air

I have a 1995 Deville that I purchased in 2000. The driver side heater has always blown cool air. My mechanic says this is an engineering screw up, and car probably came off the assembly line with this problem. He said General Motors suggested a fix. He told me not to waste my money because this fix doesn't do much good at all. (By the way, my mechanic now has his own business but at one time was a mechanic and then the service manager for a Cadillac dealer.) I've tried a 12 volt 10 amp heater and I found out my breath is warmer than heater's output. I live in Northwest Indiana, and I'd sure like to fix this problem so my feet will stay warm. Thanks.

My passenger side got cold air on my 1995 Deville. It is now fixed. A "door" under the dash was not opening and closing properly.
#8 of 88 Heater fan constantly on
Aug 16, 2006 (6:59 pm)
I have a 1993 sedandeville that i recently bought. when i first got it the heater fan didnt work at all then i found that a fuse was missing. I replaced the fuse and the fan wouldnt stop, even if the car was off. No matter what the climate control system said the fan was constantly blowing. Any ideas?

Probably the main temperature control box, under the dash, on top of the air box.
Especially if it blows even with the key off.

Later models of leSabres and Park Avenues have a blower control module that sits inside the air path next to the blower motor. The internal controls change that electronic circuit board. One failure mode is that the blower never shuts off. The circuit board locks into continuous circuit mode. Other failures are erratic fan operation with speed changes, no blower, blower coming on later...
Check the power lead from blower motor backk to find the blower control module. Advanced Auto reported has them for 93 and on H bodies at about $100. If you find it's the problem, they may have yours.
