1999 Oldsmobile Delta 88 headlight problem, daytime running headlights come on, but will not come on when I press the switch, so I do not have any headlights at night, changed relays and switch


I have learned from experience that the things you changed are seldom the problem. It is probably a problem with the lamp control module (LCM), a little mini-computer switching device that controls the lighting circuits. It would be tucked up under the dash somewhere. An electrician (or you) would check for power in on the appropriate wires and then check for power out on the appropriate wires that go from there to the headlight dimmer switch and then routed to the headlight assemblies. You really need a wiring diagram to know what you are looking for. A yellow wire out from the LCM goes to the dimmer switch-this should be hot with headlights turned on.

I need to change the headlights in a 1998 cavalier but I don't know how to take off the cover for the headlights?


You change the bulbs from the back of the composite headlight assembly. Open the hood, turn the bulb connector counterclockwise-about a quarter turn, and pull connector and bulb out. Take old bulb out, put new on on-don't touch the bulb glass with your fingers, body oil may shorten bulb life.

Olds 1988 delta 88 changed harmonic balancer and now odd things happen. Like sometimes when you turn on headlights the windshield wipers come on. Sometimes when idling in park the mileage odometer will...


Sounds like a ground issue. Look for any ground points around the area of the engine where you were. There are several bolts that have ground wires attached on the manifold and head areas.

I want to replace flasher on 89 olds 88 where is it


If you mean the blinker bulb, they are either set in behind the front bumper, where you see the orange/white colored glass (directly beneath the headlights)....OR the side blinkers, which are accessed by opening the hood and reaching in from the inside.

The rear blinkers are able to be accessed by opening the hood, and removing a small (phillips head) screw on the top of the vertical tail light housing. These lights serve as blinkers and brake lights, and there are two in each housing. Hope that helps! :)

My hi and low beam headlights were broken in a small damage accident-1991 olds delta 88 royale-my local supply store tells me a replacement is not available? can any advise thank you bill


hi bill, I think the problem might be the glass cover for the headlights. I checked, and the 87-91 olds delta 88 have a replacement bulb, not a sealed beam headlight. I assume the glass cover (lens) of the headlights were broken due to the minor accident. The headlight lens, or glass, might be found in an auto salvage yard. You might find new ones at a dealership, but they would be very hard to find for a 91, as they don't make them anymore, due to the cars age (no demand to make manufacturing them worthwhile). So check the junk yard, it's your best bet. Good luck, Curt
