You can call any GM dealer, but don't try to find an Oldsmobile dealer, GM phased out that division in 2004.

SOURCE: 2001 oldsmobile intrigue, won't keep a charge?

This is my second oldsmobile i have owned. Now there is two positive connections right above where the battery is make sure they are free of rust and they are tight be careful not to over tighten nuts. Oldsmobile's are terrible for those external positive posts.

There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Not to mention the big list of trouble codes for the engine light.

Best way to find out what's going on engine light is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means and the problem. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

SOURCE: how to change the pcv valve on an 1999 oldsmobile

Remove plastic "sight shield" / engine cover (two black 13mm nuts on top). PCV valve is plugged into front (left) camshaft cover at the end furthest from pulleys. Check the elbow - if cracked one for Chryslers that Autozone sells in bubblepack will fit - just check the size with the new one.

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero. I left it sitting in the cold for 2 days and when I tried to start it the battery was dead. Took the battery to get recharged and now the car starts, but the speedometer...

Hello Aubrey.

I have seen this happen before. Caused by a voltage surge mostly by hooking up the battery with the key on.

When you get your car up to a speed on the highway that is halfway on your speedometer it will come back around. You may need to get up to 70 or 80 MPH.

Watch you don't get a ticket!

Thank you for using FixYa.

I changed the engine computer in my 2000 oldsmobile intrigue and now all it does is click when i try to start it......could someone please tell me how to fix this problem?do i need to reset something or...

Ensure that your battery is fully charged before attempting the relearn procedure. Do not leave any battery charger or jumper cables attached to the battery. Close the hood completely. Some applications require that the doors remain closed during the procedure.
00 + GM
1. Rotate the key to the start position to attempt to start the vehicle (the vehicle will not start). Allow the key to return to the on position. (same as if the vehicle would have started)
2. The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes.
3. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns off) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt to start the vehicle.
4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes.
5. On the next cycle of turning the ignition key from off to crank the vehicle should start
6. Once the vehicle is running, the password is learned and this completes the cycle.
7. Clear any DTC's with a scan tool if necessary. DTC history will be cleared after 100 ignition cycles.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya, keep us posted.

Gauges have stopped working what do i do to fix

GM vehicles have some issues with their instrument panel clusters internally. It is possible that your entire gauge cluster might have to be replaced. Small question though, does the speedometer work correctly? If so, and all the other gauges are inoperable then it's probrably the cluster. check your fuses also.

1999 Alero replaced the blower motor and now the speedometer is stuck at over 140. How do you fix a stuck speedometer

Any time you do any electrical work on a modern computerized car, you must remove the negative cable from the battery prior to work beginning. You will have to reset your driver memories and radio presets afterwards. You have to reset your computer to reset your speedometer. On most 90's Olds, turn on the key but not to 'start', leave in 'Park', then depress the gas pedal rapidly all the way to the floor three times, then turn key off. Then start vehicle. Some models are different, though; you may have to call the 800 no. in the owner's manual and let GM walk you through it.

Need to change from km to miles on odometer, and there is no reset button to change it back to miles.

If the odometer is a digital display, you may need to take it to the dealer to get the computer to report miles. This function may not be available to non-GM scanners. If it is a mechanical speedometer, you probably need to replace the entire head to get miles display. Check with wrecking yards for a used one. You can drive the odometer one way or the other by using a short length of cable in an electric drill.

Take your VIN number to your local dealer and they can code you a new key.
