It is probably a bad motor, or a loose ground going to the motor. And there is the possibility of a bad switch, if it only occurs at one speed.

Begin by training the water from your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville cooling system. Remove the heater core water supply hoses. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.

The blower motor on a 1997 Pontiac Bonneville is located next the evaporator core. It will be mounted behind the glovebox on the passenger side of the vehicle. Remove the glovebox, mounting hardware, and sensor clips. The blower motor will be able to be replaced.

Probably a bad blower motor. Try tapping the blower motor gently with a hammer when it isn't working. It that makes it work, replace the blower motor.

In a 1997 Jeep Wrangler, the relay switch for the heater blower and motor is located behind the dash. It will be directly behind the HVAC knobs behind the dashboard.

No such part on a Town and Country. There is a blend air motor under the dash that controls the heater output.

Just take one of the heater hoses loose at the heater core and loop it back to the motor to the other heater hose. Or you can take them both loose at the heater core and put a splice connector between them is this is easier.

The 1997 Pontiac Bonneville has a coolant capacity of 5.6 gallons. The manufacturer recommends that 50 percent of your coolant should be anti-freeze.

That happened to me with my Park Avenue. (I now own a Riviera) If the Riv is the same, then there is a relay for the motor. You would have to find that, and replace it.

The rotor thickness for your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville is 0.75. When the rotor falls below this thickness a certified mechanic can no longer use the rotor.

You can remove your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville ignition switch by removing the retaining ring at the top of the ignition switch. The ignition switch will slide out.

heater fan problemI'm haveing the same prblem in my 1997 Bonneville and have been told after paying $80 for the diagnosis by the Pontiac service department that it is the fan motor that needs to be replaced. I believe that there is a sensor of some kind that is attached to the heater fan which has gone bad. I haven't replaced it yet but it cost around $50 to buy the fan so it's an easy fix if what the Pontiac service department said is true. Don't let them do it they will charge you around $250 for the same repair!

User Avatar

Blown fuse, defective blower motor resistor pack, blower motor, or blower motor switch. This happened to me and I found a connector at the fan motor had fried. I changed the connector and it worked great.

You will need to remove the front engine cover, on your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville, in order to change the supercharger belt. Loosen the tensioner pulley to remove the belt.

it is either a bad switch on your controls, or your blower motor is going out
