Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue
I have a 1998 Olds Inrigue.Every time I've tried to replace the drivers turn signal bulb, it burns out after a couple rides. The funny thing is that the running light fillament still works. But only at night.
The bulb is a double fillament and only the blinking part burns out. Can anyone help?
My 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue drivers blinker keeps blowing out. I have spent too much money on this car and I need to know what if I can fix this problem myself and if so how?

These cars have a problem with this. I would replace the socket you a quality bulb and some bulb grease. This should give you alot of bulb life

Check to see if the socket is the culprit by swapping the left for the right. Make sure you have good bulbs. If the left one burns out you've shown that it is the socket. I had this problem on my '96 Intrigue. The socket is easy to replace and fairly inexpensive at $15-25. The socket will keep frying bulbs if it is bad.

Clean connections real good.
I have the same problem. Today i replaced the burned out bulb and noticed that the plastic on the bottom of the bulb where the connecting wires are has melted a little and the wire has melted into it. It looks like there could not be a connection. Not sure but i think that the socket that the bulb goes into is not making a good connection and is arcing and melting the plastic on the bottom of the bulb so it cannot make a connection. I will be cleaning the connector real good and hope it does not happen again.

When handling the new bulb, are you wearing gloves or using a rag? Today's halogen bulbs are extremely sensitive to body oil...(on all of our hands) This invisible oil contaminates the new bulb exterior...and ALWAYS shortens the life of the new bulb. Be sure to use bulb grease to cover the contact points on the new bulb. This assures a good connection and reduces exposure to moisture. Hope this helps.
