Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

Dash lights, starting, heater blower, head lights & blinker

My 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue seems to be going down the tubes.
We just had the heat core fixed/replaced after we spent time and money fixing the head gasket, which we thought was the original problem since it would barely drive without over heating. This no longer a problem, but now has a new mess of problems.
My anti-lock break, break, trac & air bag lights come on and flash on and off, not consistently or simultaneously.
Every now and again I will go to start my car and it will turn over but die immediately. I go to start it again and it turns on. This is not due to the cold weather, and only happens when it feels like it. I find it sometimes helps if I tap the gas pedal or push the break right away.
My heat blower seems to be blowing very inconsistently. It will blow out a lot and then fade. It also seems to do the same with my head lights. They dim/fade and then come back, not only when I am driving, but when I have the car in park. Same with the heat blower.
Lastly, my driver's side front blinker just can not stay working. I replace the bulb and within a month or two it quits working. Could this be a wiring problem or a short?
I am at my whit's end with this car!

Before going crazy with this, check all engine and body grounds to make sure everything is connected. it's possible something was left a bit loose when doing cylinder heads. Wont hurt to go over the positive battery and alternator connections as well!

How do I get heat in my 2000 oldsmobile bravada

do you have coolant flow through heater core? Does the blower motor work? If that checks out, maybe a temp door under the dash has a problem?

I have a water leak under the dash on the passenger side. Is it the heater core or the condensation from the a/c not draining out under the car?

Check the fluid you are getting. Rub some between your fingers. If it smells like coolant and feels slimy, chances are its a bad heater core. If its clear, not much smell and feels like water, condensation from evaporator. That is usually a plugged drain tube, or drain tube has slipped off the catch pan. The A/C evaporator can be accessed without too much problem up under the passenger side dash, sometimes behind the glove box.....Mike

Coolant boils, over heats, not the head gasket or water pump. Had some wet on passanger carpet. Hear liquid swishing????

If the carpet is wet on the passenger side then it is most likely the Heater Core that is leaking and needs to be replaced. The heather core is located just above the passnger floor under the dash.

2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue: Heat and A/C blower only works on "high".

This is a common problem when the heater resistor goes bad. It is located near or mounted on the blower motor. Replacing the resistor module will fix the problem. FYI, Sometimes the blower motor is still working but the bearings are going bad. This tends to cause premature failure of the motor resistors. (So if the resistors fail again I would suggest replacing the blower motor as well.)

2000 Intrigue overheating

Needs to be taken to a shop and see if there are Hydrocarbons in the cooling system. This would mean it is a head gasket problem and that would prove it. IF not it MIGHT be the heater core... But most likely not.

Do you notice antifreeze dripping from the AC drain??? IF not... It is not your heater core.
