Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

3 Answers

Temp controls unit intermittent, cruise control also

When you first turn on the key the temp control unit lights up the same time as you get readings on the odometer. Sometimes it does not come on at all and other times it will come on and when you start the car it goes off (as it is suppose to) but never comes back on. I checked the unit itself and it doesn't seem to be the problem. The cruise control also only works sometimes.

It's starting to get cold here and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Where are the experts??????????????????

  • tjanzer Nov 07, 2008

    I guess nobody here knows anything about my problem. Too bad. I was hoping that this site had actual experts that could help me with my problem as advertised.

    I guess spam sites are everywhere :(

Had the same problem with my wifes 2000 intrigue. AC/heater module worked intermittently and the cruise didn't work at all. Replaced ignition switch module. $99 and about an hour and a half for a non-skilled do-it-yourselfer. Have the part store show you a replacement procedure out of a chiltons. Its easy if you know the procedure.
The GM dealer said the code pointed to the HVAC module. Bogus.... Igniton switch module fixed my problem. Good luck..

When looking at a power distribution schematic, the HVAC and cruise control share a dedicated feed from the ignition switch. It sounds to me like the switch has an intermittant fault, since the display is lit and then when cranked it goes dead (as it should) but the switch may never remake the contact when returning to run causing the loss of power.

Sport mode shift light flashing?


The s light blinking means you have an active code in you tcu or transmission control unit. there is a juumper wire behind the passenger side kick panel and if you use a paper clip or small wire to connect both terminals in the connector you can read the engine and transmission code out on the dash. Once the jumper wire is connected turn the key to the on position engine off and count how many times the s light blinks. Thats the number of your code. I would read the codes out first before doing anything else.

Temp gauge says hot(goes all the way to left by gas gauge)little bit of coolant under car once in a while but then coolant will be low-There is no white smoke.Doesn't heat or cool well.heater core has...


the coolant could be just overflow,, as far as the temp,, replace the thermostat as a first thing, when your car gets that hot, it causes readings to be sent to the computer that sends mixed signals to other parts of the car, The first thing you should do is pull the diagnostic codes. This will tell you if the thermostat is dead.check the temp sending unit, it is located under the upper radiator hose, 19mm wrench will take it off, it costs about 20 bucks but you also need to replace the thermostat. all in all its about 25 bucks total and all your gauges work fine....

Check engine light appears after 30 minutes of


ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTICS Dodge OBD1 Pre 96

1. Cycle the ignition key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON within 5 seconds. To cycle the ignition key ON means to turn it only as far as it takes to get the radio to come on. It does not mean to turn the engine on.

2. Count the number of times the "check engine" lamp on the instrument panel flashes on and off. The number of flashes represents the code. There is a slight pause between the flashes representing the first and second digits of the code. Longer pauses separate individual codes. For example, flash-flash-flash [pause] flash-flash represents the code 32.

A code of "55" represents end of error codes. If this is all you get then no error codes are stored in the computer. This is the normal condition

CODE Description of Trouble Code
11 Timing belt skipped 1 tooth or more from initial learned value, Intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor, No crank reference signal detected during engine cranking

My cruise control will suddenly stop working and the cruise light


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the brake fluid level. This may be an answer. Also have you had the brakes checked. The cruise control is integrated with the brakes. Any little thing wrong with them effects the cruise.

Instrument panel lights


i just recently replaced mine and the temp control had burned . the dash fascia needs to be removed. the vents must come out and then remove the screws that hold it on..there are probably 10 screws.. under the vents , behind the ashtray, and behind the cruise control switch and dimmer switch.. once this is done you need to remove the 4 screws that hold the heater control unit in. the bulb that needs to be replaced lights up temp control and fan speed...you may be able to download an exploded veiw of the dash fascia...this is an involved job...but worth it at night!
