Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

2 Answers

Electrical Problems Twice in the last week now I have seen the odometer and gear selection indicator start flickering while I am driving. During one of the times, as I shut off the car, the clock reset. I also had the front driver side turn signal burn out, when I replaced it with the correct bulb, it will not light up while the headlights are on (it still works as a blinker though). Reverse lights do not light up while in reverse, trunk release and fuel door release do not work. Any ideas??? Thanks.

    Is there anywhere I can get a wiring diagram for this car so I can find all of the ground wires?

The parking light: This is a common problem I see with Intrigues everywhere. I own a 1998 Intrigue and my sister has a 2000- both had this problem. Replacing the bulb alone will not fix this. I replaced the socket ($20-there were bad contacts). I replaced my socket years ago and never had a problem with the light again.

As far as your other issues- I don't know, I'm having other issues with my car currently- hence why I am on this site.

Odometer and gear display flashes quickly, especially when driving


It could be due to the electrical board fuses going bad. I had to replace one for my odometer/gear indicator not long ago on my '98 Century. For some reason it's a common problem for Buicks. If you go to YouTube and type in "odometer repair" there is a video that will show you how to do it,if in fact that is the problem. But the gear shift indicator and odometer are all tied in to the same circuit. If you do try to fix,it really helps to have someone else there to hold the fuses steady whenever you are soldering the new ones in.

The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!

OdometerGears.com has the gears for you to repair the odometer. If the odometer and the tripometer are stacked you will need and E20= 20 tooth gear and a 16 tooth medium pod. If the odometer and tripometer are split left to right you will need 2 drive and 2 worm gears. Give them a call and they will offer you a discount for the four gears. The total for two gears is $54.00 and for the four gears is $89.00 both prices include the shipping.

My 2002 Honda Civic starts - but slowly and the lights flicker


Well it absolutely sounds like an alternator issue. But i noticed you said "in the rain" correct? See this is where it gets tricky for most folks. But ill tell ya how to resolve this, if you arent having problems now things are gonna be just fine. I mean if you got up the next morning and th ecar did normal, then evidentally an electrical component had some moisture in it but has dried out now,so if it was the alternator the problem would only worsen, and within a few days your battery would fail. So I think you will be just fine
