Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue
I bought the replacement flasher module from NAPA (my problem is flashers sometimes work, sometimes don't), but can not find where the flasher is located.....under dash, near fuse box, ??? I have looked all over the car in the ususal places for such modules. No Cilton available to tell me and NAPA has no clue. Don't want to go to service center to be charged for popping in a module.
Are you sure they gave you the right one??? On the 2002 the turn signal flasher is apart of the hazard too.
Remove Hazard/cruise bezel on front of dash and be very careful as it breaks easily. Remove the center air conditioning vent in the dash. The vent is held in the dash by (4) PLASTIC hooks. Two on top and two on the bottom. THe top left hook is almost directly above the left vent adjustment tab on the louver and the bottom left hook is in about the same spot below. The top and bottom right hand hooks are above and below the right louver adjustment tab similar to the left side. They break easily!!!
After removing the vent you will be able to see the Hazard/cruise control retainer. This retainer is made from black plastic and has (2) rather large flaps on the left and right side of the hazard switch which is in the top part of the carrier. Simply squeeze BOTH together and the whole thing will fall out behind the dash.
Both the switches have the usual electrical connections. The hazard switch has a white tab on the right side that is depressed to free the connector. The cruise switch has a green lift tab to free the connector. You can now remove the carrier with both switches.
The hazard switch is in a green sleeve which must be removed from the black group carrier. Figures doesn't it! to do that depress the green tabs on the sides of the sleeve to get it out, I had to break the tabs off to do that. Do not worry about breaking the tabs since the new part includes this sleeve. The new part from GM at the dealer cost 71.86 as of 10/27/08.
Now replace the faulty switch and reassemble. If you have the part in hand BEFORE you start this should be a 30 minute job.
Another comment if the turn signals do not work but the cornering lights do then try this first. The other thing would be a bad turn signal leaver on the column and i believe that's around $250.00 at the dealer, going to be less at Auto Zone or the Salvage Yards.
Good luck and Hope this helps. Keep me posted be glad to help
