I think the problem is with the heater motor resistor pack which you will find located near the fan motor. Open the hood and look to the left side corner of the fire wall. I have a 95 Astro and my resistor pack is located on top of the heater blower housing. I have changed many of these resisters on different makes and have found them to have their resistors rusted. The resistors are made of wire and they rtust and burn out. Find the small plug that goes to the resistors and you will find a a plate which has two screws, one on each end of the resistor pack. Remove the two screws and pull out the resistor pack. You can either get a used one from the junk yard or purchase one from a Chevy dealer. The resistor is used to control the different fan speeds and is located in the the blower housing so that the fan helps cool the resistors when the fan is running.

Why would the blower motor not work on a 1995 Cadillac Deville?

The blower motors only work with the engine running. If the blower motor has three wires on the electrical plug, then the blower motor module is built into the unit & it's very expensive. Sometimes, you can tap on the motor with a hammer & it may work or slowly turn. If this is the case, replace the blower motor.

Why would our 97 lesabre blower work sometimes and sometimes not?

If the blower motor randomly and intermittenly quits and does not work, chances are good the blower motor itself is faulty, if the blower motor does not work on all fan speeds from low through high, it most likely needs a blower motor resistor.

2000 grand am sometimes heater blower works sometimes not - any answers?

If a 2000 Grand Am sometimes has the heater blower working and sometimes it won't, the problem could be with the heater relay switch. The heater relay switch lets the heater blower know when to come on and when to go off. In most vehicles this switch is behind the glove compartment. This part sometimes gets corroded from condensation in this area.
