Question about Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

Flasher blinks fast and then blew out and so did the headlight in my 2002 oldsmobile intrigue

I have a 2002 intrigue oldsmobile and the flasher only on the side of the light blinks fast most times and then blows out . Replaced it 3 times and had the contacts cleaned. Last night the headlight on the same side (Driver) blew. In the last 5 years I replaced the flasher bulb twice and had no serious problems. But the car was hit by another car and it smashed the driver fender and the headlight unit (Plastic Shield) was cracked and I had it replaced with another headlight unit that I bought second hand from the salvage yard. I'm not sure if it came off a 2002 model but I'm sure it was a 2001, 2002, or 2003 model. But I should mention that after the car accident and before I had the car fixed and the headlight unit replaced the flasher bulb blew. I also have a problem with my power mirrors working properly. They only adjust up, not down or to the side. Not sure if this is related to the flasher and light problem and I'm not worried about fixing my mirror problem. Just thought it might be related. Also the driver side power window is not functioning the best and I had that problem for years. Hope you can help

The problems are probably related in some way. Let's reason this out...If there is an intermittent short in the wiring somewhere it could blow bulbs. If you have poor grounds on the MANY ground wires in the car and in the engine compartment, sudden surges could be taking out fuses and bulbs. If you really want to find the solution(s), you will need a wiring diagram of the complete car. You can get one by going to the auto parts store and requesting a Haynes auto book for a 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue. In it you may find some hints like I gave you. Try to trace the worst problems first so that you can keep the car on the road (pass inspections)...

SOURCE: Power Windows

Improper installation could have caused the replacements to fail if the limit switches that prevent the motor from operating when totally closed or opened may not be adjusted right. Once the pane is run against the ends of its travel, the motor could draw a ton of power which would cause it to heat very quickly. Those motors are made as cheaply as possible and probably are not designed as larger ones that are now almost all thermally protected.

SOURCE: Need to replace the driver's side rear view mirror

Pry the door panel loose and let it hang. The power window panel can be pried out and twisted down through the panel to give you room to work. Unplug power mirror connector if you have one. Three screws behind the foam plugs will remove mirror. Be careful lining up the plastic door panel anchors when assembling.

SOURCE: Need to replace driver side mirror for Camry 2002, Power mirror

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

My 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue signals do not work on the front end of car, the ones in back blink fast. The front signal turn on but don not blink. I tried the fuses and the hazard unit. Any other ideas you...

the bulbs have twin elements, I suspect that the one element used for the turn signal circuit is burned out-try replacing one bulb with a new on to see if that fixes it-if not, those sockets are known to have problems with corrosion, so examine them for it.

What could be the problem on my 2000 oldsmobile intrigue, the turn signals blink fast when signal is on but the front just stays steadily on. when hazards are on the back lights run fine the front lights...

the front stays on steadily because you have duel element bulbs, the filiment for the turn signal is blown out-replace it with a new bulb, when you have it out check too for rust in the socket, they do that (I have a 2000 Intrigue w/140,000 miles)

1999 Olds Intrigue Front blinkers don't work, bulbs are good and so are the fuses. Back blinkers do work, but blink fast. Hazards work too.

The most common cause will most likely be the turn signal/multifunction switch. Hard to confim it without testing the outputs from the switch. I have replace more than 100 on this body style of car

Dimming headlights,blinking headlights

Your alternator may be going bad. Test your battery while it is running with a voltmeter. It should be above 13.0 volts. I would check that first.
