Flashing Airbag Light Prior to Startup

Should the airbag light on my 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue flash repeatedly before going out, when I start it up? It is the only light on my dash that does this, the other lights do not flash. I only noticed this after having some repairs done a moth ago.

On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.
The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.

How do i reset the change oil light?

On most of them all you do is turn the key to the on position, without the engine started, but the dash warning lights will be on. Then press the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times. The light should go out for the oil change. After that, turn the key off and then start the car. The light should go out and you have reset the minder.

How do I clear the " change Oil" dash light after an oil change?

  1. Turn the ignition to ON; do not start the engine.
  2. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. If the CHANGE OIL indicator flashes, the system is resetting.
  4. Turn the ignition to OFF after the indicator has finished flashing, then start the vehicle. If the CHANGE OIL indicator comes back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset; repeat the procedure.

1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue security light on/power only sometimes

first thing you need to do is unhook any wiring installation you did. It sounds as if you have running your power straight to ground. Somewhere you made a wrong connection.

You have also discharged your battery as part of connecting your power lead to ground.

Disconnect what wires you hooked up for the light system and then recharge the battery. Bill
