Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Electric windows, air control and cruise

After turning my car on, at random times (more frequently lately) my electric windows, cruise control and air blower does not work. Sometimes it will come on a few minutes later and sometimes it doesn't at all. Not sure if this would be wiring or what.......thanks

Check the fuses first.  If it's not that, check the switches.  If it's not the switches, then it will probably be the wiring, most likely a short somewhere.

2000 Dodge stratus - runs ok but at times will "chug" or misfire driving down highway - think its an electrical issue as it will almost "act up" when using cruise, turn signals, air conditioning, etc.


check the vacuum lines for leaks first,since the cruise uses vacuum to pull on the gas pedal, and ac controls use vacuum to work the baffle doors in the ductwork..then start looking for loose connections on these 3 itemsrepost findings

Cruise turns off when we roll down the windows


Strange electrical problems can sometimes be attributed to a bad ignition switch. The battery should also be load tested, especially if it is more than 4 - 5 years old.

I have a 97 discovery.i found lately the cruise control is not working and the rear electric windows not working either. I checked all the fuses all ok and i checked the the switches for the rear windows...


Me a sparky too - found this on another website and it worked - for rear windows - you need to find a switched hot and splice it into the white wire going into the electric window ECM located on the far right side under the glovebox (I removed the glovebox, 4 7mm bolt on bottom to make easier). the white wire is staring right at you when you pull the glovebox out on the right side - part of a wire connector with purple.black.grey wires going into it. 12 gauge.

Cruise light turns on but set light does not


Sure enough babe! Often the problem is in the CONTROL BUTTONS (those on the steering wheel)... Yet again, I've see the problem point to the Cruise Control Module (Under the hood). Since you mentioned the 'CRUISE' light comes ON, but nothing else is working, I'd hazard a guess the control buttons are malfunctioning. If you press them REAL HARD, do they work? Otherwise, Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).
