Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue
My back signals, light and blink, but my front signals dont blink, its just a solid light, i cant seem to locate the flasher for the blinkers or figure out how to fix it
Symptoms for this replacement are: (1) left front (or other) turn signal randomly works and/or (2) emergency flashers randomly work. The good news is that one switch will fix all four turn signals plus your emergency flashers (my cost at dealer was $119.99 - plus tax $127.00, but it is an ACDelco product and I've given you that part number below if you wish to get it somewhere else.
You will need to purchase one new "emergency flasher switch" from your GM dealer (or ACDelco part ACD# 10401280 -- or GM# 10401280). Must go to http://www.GMfixit.com for new site that will tell you step-by-step how to replace it - I didn't find d those instructions anywhere else online). Then type in "Search" for "Olds Intrigue turn signals won't flash." The directions there It will also tell you the tools you will need to do the job (and please follow them so you won't dent or cut into the dash material). I found I also needle bent-tip needle-nose pliers and an Exacto Knife with #11 blades). The written directions there also have a drawing for where the parts are located and the order in which you do which process.
The opening to get to the switch is through the center of the dash at the top, and it isn't very large. I have small hands and it took me 3 hours to get it apart and back together again. It's built very solidly, which is why it took so long to get it apart, It's not difficult to do.
Some time ago a repair shop sent me to the GM dealer to get a new socket, thinking that was the problem. The dealer didn't have the right size of socket, so sold me the next size smaller. Then trying to put the correct light bulb in was frustrating, as it was too big. So when I had the new switch in, I had to go the the GM dealer and get a new socket (the correct one is: ACDelco: ACD# LS115 --- or from your GM dealer, GM# 12456483. The correct light bulb you need is an orange Sylvania bulb: 41571NPK Next line down: 2152 2551 R9. I got mine from Car Quest, very inexpensively. At the GM dealer (slightly different number) they were more than $8.00 each.
All my turn signals and flashers are now so quiet and smooth I don't know how to act. I hope this is enough information to get you back on track. The next time they don't work, you'll immediately know what to do, and you won't be frustrated. Best Wishes!

Check your fuses. The box is located on the end of the dashboard on the passengers side. Remove the small vinyl plate,
