Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
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...)
Need a shop to figure out the real problem there
& then give you some options for a proper repair
Without the car,wiring diagrams & some diagnostic time,
that question can't be answered. Have to know the system
you need fixed

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

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.

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.
