Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue
The battery light comes on whenever the car starts, stays on usually about 10 minutes and then goes out. It doesn't come back on until the next time I start the car. My battery is approximately 5 years old.
Also, I have a problem whenever I use the cruise control. The car accelerates on it's own, motor dies when I sit in traffic and the signal lights will quit.
The battery light is an indication of some kind of problem with the alternator, most likely a diode problem in the rectifier bridge, this changes AC current to DC current to supply power to the car and charge the battery.
The cruise problem is most likely the cruise control module is failing.
