Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Radio Blowing Tail Light Fuse

Installed a new Pioneer DEH3000IB CD player in my 93 Olds Cutlass Ciera. Have double and triple checked wiring with diagrams. The Radio Illumination wire (Gray), the Antenna Trigger wire (Pink), and Radio Dimmer wire (Brown) have all been capped off and taped up. I have no amp, so the amp remote wire from the new stereo is capped off and taped up. All the others are correct as per the diagram. The stereo works like it should except when I turn the headlights on it blows the taillight/dash light fuse immediately. So then I tried a new fuse, plugged the radio back up leaving the factory antenna wire disconnected and it worked until I plugged the factory antenna wire into the back of the stereo with the headlights on. Does not happen when the antenna is not hooked up. I tried to ring the antenna to ground, no dice. Then I checked the antenna to see if it somehow had voltage on it, meter showed nothing. I keep suspecting something with the Illumination wire or the dimmer wire and now I suspect the antenna. I really am lost here. I hooked up a similar Pioneer Stereo and the same exact thing happens telling me it is not a faulty stereo. Other features of the car is: No Power Antenna, Has Electric Door Locks. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass


There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

Hi, Have an 88 Olds Cutlass Ciera. High beams come on, but won't stay on more then 10 seconds. Low beamd did work, but now flash on and off. This may or may not be related. Short in tail light , the fuse...


MOST VEHICLES HAVE A CIRCUIT BREAKER BUILT IN THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH. OVER TIME THE CIRCUIT BREAKER WILL GET WEAK & IT WILL TURN THE HEADLIGHTS ON & OFF. YOU PROBABLY NEED A NEW SWITCH & THE FUSE BLOWING IN THE TAIL LIGHT CIRCUIT MAY BE A SEPARATE ISSUE.

I have a 96 Olds Cutlass Ciera, and my fuse box is in my glove box. To the left, there's a black panel that says "Fuse Panel." Not sure if there's another one or not.

1994 Olds Cutlas Ciera Tail lights dont work. Turn signals and backup lights work. Bulbs and fuse is ok. What else should I check?


Check your wires to see if you have good ground, as well as power...Use a test light, or a probe light will be better... so you can check for both..power and ground, because if the circuit is not complete, then it wont work...Even though the fuses are good, and the bulbs are good....it wont be no good if you don't have the electricity to work them

Car keeps blowing a fuse while driving and wont get gas when it happens. possible wiring problem to fuel pump. where can i get a diagram for the wiring and does a 93 olds cutlass ciera have a in tank...


Yes the fuel pump is in the tank.The fuel pump relay is the first thing to check.Not to expensive,just put a new one in.Check all wires under the hood,and under the vehicle from front to back to see if there is a bad,torn wire harness.Think if any thing has been added to the vehicle where screws may have been put in,they could have cut a wire going in.Look for naked wires touching any thing.The fuel pump fuse can be part of the ecm also,so don`t just pinpoint fuel pump wire harness,sensors switches,etc,can be on the same circuit.If you have wired in a radio,or something similar,this could be the problem,maybe an over load to the circuit,so look for that also.If all this is fine,and you have changed the fuel pump relay out with a new one,then replace the fuel pump.If I can help,let me know.
