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.

Where is the cooling fan relay on 1994 oldsmobile cutlass ciera


The fan relay should be one of the four on the firewall under the windshield. You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams to test it.
If you have power and ground at the fan motor and it does not run, the motor may be faulty.

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.

93 olds cutlass ciera-it bucks and jumps and will die especially on turns. Sometimes hard to restart. May drive several days with no problem and then it will start up again. Any ideas? Has had a new MAP...


When was the last time the fuel filter was chg.? If you can't remember or thats not an issue, than its time to do a fuel pressure test to determine if pump is weak, or on its way out.
