Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

Oldsmobile headlight headache.

My headlights turn off within about 30 seconds of starting the car, and cannot be turned on manually without restarting. Any way to jury-rig these lights so they won't do that? (By jury-rig, I mean something that doesn't involve a $500 fix for a new light switchbox or whatever it's called...)

Without the car,wiring diagrams & some diagnostic time,
that question can't be answered. Have to know the system

SOURCE: 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 (Vin "C") won't start, won't turn over

the 12 amp is for a jump start and the 2 amp is for a trickle charge which doesn't degrade the battery. i believe you have a loose connection either a loose ground cable or the positive cable to the starter check these and tighten if neccessary

SOURCE: headlights will not turn on 94 bravada

Check the Fuse and if that is good, there is a good chance that it's going to be the head light switch it self.
Auto Zone or Parts Source should have that part for let then the dealer. If your not sure how to change it your self, they both have the how do it your self instructions to change it.
Good luck.

Im guessing you tried to bypass the key in the ignition/steering column. This is ok unless the actual problem was in the TDM (theft deterrent module) In this case, the 2 wire bypass does nothing. There is another way to bypass this. Check out this link for tons of info and some DO IT YOURSELF options. Ive done several key bypasses and tons of full bypasses. They both work well, it just depends on what part is failing. I think you need the full bypass to eliminate that TDM.

Are tailights supposed to be on when headlights


When/if you turn the headlights on with the switch the tail lites should be on but if you are asking about when you start and run the car without manually turning on the headlights then no, the headlights you are referring too are actually day time running lights (your headlights @ 1/2 the power) and are for safety. when those are on your tail lights will not be on.

you might just have two bad low beam headlights, I have seen it before. Only other problem would be the switch that turns on the headlights is bad. Best way is to Test power going into the headlight when the low beams are turned on to rule out the switch.

Headlight and tail lights


Some cars automatically turn running lights or headlights on for added safety. Perhaps yours does. It should tell in your manual.

Left of the two headlight buttons for headlights and parking, there is a vertical slider. It's labeled Twilight, meaning twilight sentinel that keeps the headlights on. Move it down and that shortens the on time to about 5 seconds. If you are sittting with the headlights on and want them to go off, push it to the bottom and it turns the lights off immediately. They will turn back on when the car is put into park.

Move the slider to the top and they should stay on for about 5 minutes. BTW if you just leave the headlight switch pushed in (if you're doing it manually) the car turns everything off in about 10 minutes--inside lights, radio, lights, cigarette lighter power (unless you moved the fuse in the underhood fuse block to make them stay on permanently).

You also may not know that if you are driving or sitting and want the headlights off but the parking lights to stay on, push the Parking LIghts button. That turns the headlights off. I didn't find that for a while because our 98 LeSabre didn't have any way to turn off the headlights while cruising through a Christmas display scene in a park where many people turn off the headlights to help the effect of the colored lights. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
