    My 99 Intrigue has similar problem, especially in cold weather. Climate control panel will go blank then come on again at whim . Cruise control also involved as it will work or not depending on the mood. I've read that ignition switch could be the culprit but at about $140 I'd like to be sure before I tell the parts store to go ahead and order it. I don't know how difficult these are to replace but I'm going to try unless someone has a good reason not to attempt it. I'm just average mechanically speaking and it's my wife's car so I can't screw this up or I'll be hearing about it for a while. Thanks for any help. Dennis

Why doesn't my heating and cooling system come on when i start the car?

If this is a new problem, a temperature sensor may have gone bad. But if this is a new car to you, some Climate Control cars work this way.

Some will allow for Vent or Panel just to get air circulating, but the A/C should come on when you select A/C unless the outside temperature is too low.

For heater functions, the engine must warm up enough to provide heat. The Climate Control models will not turn on until it compares your temperature settings with how hot the engine water temperature is to provide this heat for you.

Now you may need to check the Antifreeze levels and check the temperature of the Radiator water to know if the Thermostat is working properly.

AC on 1999 Oldsmobile intrigue not working correctly.

the air feels hot ( compressed) because the ac compressor is not working
you say that occasionally it kicks in and then the air is cold
that could be either a climate control module , thermostat compressor relay problem but which ever way you look at it it will cost cash
the best way is to have the problem properly diagnosed by an accredited ac specialist shop and get a quote and then decide on the fix

Climate control display for Outside temperature

Had the same problem, replaced the ambient air temp sensor in front of the radiator. Cost is like 10-15 bucks. Don't worry if temp doesn't change right away. Took me about 5 miles and then it worked great.

Older cars sometimes have many difficult problems, especially the wires problem, it is very hard to find out which wire got trouble, I think your Olds wire got hot sometimes before and some wires connected together and by pass.

Olds is GMC products, the plastic sucks easy to melt, sometimes also cause the engine over heat, because the cooling fan doesn’t work right.

Good luck, my friend.
