I have Olds Intrigue 2000. Lately Blower started acting up. Stops working, an hour later it will start working again. Making shrieking / squicking sounds, speed changes

while driving. Using 5.5 mm socket I removed the old motor. (Not very difficult.)

Wiring harness is a bit tricky to unhook. (!!!Do not touch the orange clip!!!)

Use screwdriver to push In the Black Clip.

Inside the old motor I found brushes are completely worn out. Needed new motor.

Replacement Motor:

In Riverview Florida: Napa and Pep Boys have Chinese made blower, just different stickers on them. In my case Napas had wrong connector type, Pep Boys unit had no connector at all.

Local Chevrolet parts department and Advance Auto Parts had similarly looking unit

with more or less right connector type, just different stickers. Both made in Canada.


an hour at most; it sits under the glove compartment. several screws hold the carpet cover underneath.. once that is off you will see the motor with a hose and the wiring harness, disconnect both. if the motor was squeeking prior to this then it's the bearings that have dried. it may have seized. if you have some time and patience you could try oiling them again by dropping oil onto the shaft and letting gravity soak into the bearing area (plus turning the shaft). reverse procedure to install...

I have a 98 olds intrigue and the blower motor resistor is located under the glove box behind the blower....

There is none - usually it is the module in the top of the heater / blower box (resistor module) that is the problem.

There are three blower relays in the fuse panel under the hood on the passenger side. Remove and inspect the contacts for burn marks. If burnt replace.

A blower resistor can be replaced, in your 2002 Oldsmobile, by removing the resistor wiring. Remove the retaining screws. Reverse the process to install the new resistor.
