Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass

1 Answer

1998 Olds Cutlass- electronics sometimes possessed?

Ok so here's what's happening.

Brake light and ABS light on = no heater blower (no recirculation light/ outside air light) no rear defrost

Brake lights turn off- air light back on and blower works

When no air lights/no blower= no power windows

Brakes lights don't have to be on for no blower. But if they are on- no blower is certain.

So frustrating!! Intermittent.. fine some days. Doesn't work at all some days.

Thanks!!!

Sorry yadayada ! BCM has nothing to do with these systems . Could possibly be a ground issue or they share a power supply ! Red brake light an ABS light lit on the instrument cluster , these are probably related ! Have check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Brake lights an HVAC blower motor have different grounds . After looking at a wiring diagram and seeing where B+ voltage comes from the ignition switch . The brake light an ABS light come on when the EBCM - electronic brake control module looses B+ voltage . I 'm just taking a guess here but it could be an igition swith problem . Take it an have it checked , Test don't guess !

SOURCE: abs light is on

youre car needs to have an abs diagnostic work up done on it to get a trouble code and to go futher with a repair. on a cutlass the brakes will feel fine with the abs light on but they will not divert brake pressure in the event of a panic stop thus causing a wheel to skid.
good luck. chris

SOURCE: 95 olds cutlass supreme sl with 3.1 6 cyl. ABS and

you may have a ABS problem. I would drive it and attemp to skid the tires an dsee if the pump activates. sometimes this will unstick any valves inside the ABS unit. you may need to have a qualified repair shop check deeper. the ABS will have a code, and a scanner will be needed to check further.

Check switch at brake pedal and relay in fusebox. Recommend replace brake light relay, as inexpensive way to possible solution.

Inside cab blows out hot air controls are off but air still comes out


OUTSIDE AIR: Press this button to direct the system to use outside air.
Pressing the OUTSIDE AIR button will cancel the RECIRCULATION button.

RECIRCULATION: Press this button to limit the amount of outside air entering your vehicle.
This is helpful when you are trying to limit odors entering your vehicle or attempting to quickly cool down the interior. Pressing RECIRCULATION will recirculate air continuously.

RECIRCULATION is used when the fan control is OFF to limit odors, outside air and dust from entering your vehicle. All button lights will go off. The last setting selected will activate when the blower is turned back on.
Pressing the RECIRCULATION button will cancel the OUTSIDE AIR button. To return to normal operation and to prevent stale air, be sure to return the OUTSIDE AIR.

Between HEATER and BLEND mode, outside air is forced to reduce window fogging. If the RECIRCULATION button is pressed, the LED indicator will flash three times indicating that forced outside air is activated and RECIRCULATION is not available.

I think what your experiencing is normal. If you want to keep cold air form coming into the cabin, press the recirc button.

I hope this helped, icon_e_biggrin.gif

Grinding noise in front brakes of a 1993 olds cutlass supreme


Assuming this vehicles brake linings are ok and not worn out, it sounds like you have an abs rotor fault. The abs is working while your are braking because it cant read the road speed correctly. So you are feeling the abs motor working.

sounds like a bad or loose ground wire, it would be located in the trunk near the tail light assembly, the other switch is for the cruise contro, it's what cuts the cruise when you hit the brakes.
