I've had that problem on my Oldsmobile Intrigue and found you just need to replace the "turn signal switch" as that's the path the power to the horn goes through. They can wear out so the contact isn't as good as it was.

Another way to check it is to see if your car's remote (if you have one) works when you click on the panic button. It should honk the horn even if the turn signal switch is out. But if that switch is bad, you can't honk your horn from the steering wheel.

Best wishes!! It's an easy fix.

SOURCE: on my 2000 oldsmobile intrigue the anti lock and

The lights are indicating you have an ABS brake control failure.
There are only a couple of things to look at. Check the ABS fuse in the under hood fuse box. If they are OK, take the car to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto store and get the codes pulled, they will do it at no charge. Write the codes down and reply.
We will go from there.
Good luck,

SOURCE: Where are the spark plugs on my 2000 Oldsmobile

2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue V6-214 3.5L VIN H SFI

Spark Plug: Service and Repair
REMOVAL PROCEDURE
TOOLS REQUIRED
J 43094 Spark Plug Boot Puller
1. Turn OFF the ignition switch.
2. Remove the ignition coil assembly.
3. Use the J 43094 in order to remove the spark plug boots from the spark plugs.
NOTE: Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove the spark plugs from a hot engine may cause the plug
threads to seize causing damage to cylinder head threads.
NOTE: Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so could result in engine damage because of dirt or
foreign material entering the cylinder head, or by the contamination of the cylinder head threads. The contaminated threads may prevent the
proper seating of the new plug. Use a thread chaser to clean the threads of any contamination.
4. Remove the spark plugs from the engine.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
NOTE: Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the
vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
NOTE: Check the gap of all new and reconditioned spark plugs before installation. The pre-set gaps may have changed during handling. Use a round
feeler gage to ensure an accurate check. Installing the spark plugs with the wrong gap can cause poor engine performance and may even damage the
engine.
1. Measure the spark plug gap on the spark plugs to be installed. Compare the measurement to the gap specifications. Refer to Spark Plug Usage.
Correct as necessary.
NOTE: Be sure that the spark plug threads smoothly into the cylinder head and the spark plug is fully seated. Use a thread chaser, if necessary,
to clean threads in the cylinder head. Cross-threading or failing to fully seat the spark plug can cause overheating of the plug, exhaust blow-by, or
thread damage.
NOTE: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
2. Install the spark plugs to the engine.
Tighten
Tighten the spark plug to 20 N.m (15 lb ft).
3. Install the spark plug boots to the ignition coil assembly.

SOURCE: how do you replace the harmonic balancer pulley on

The short answer to your question is:

1. Raise the car on the passenger side and remove the front wheel.
2. Remove the belts on the harmonic balancer.
3. Remove the retaining bolt.
4. With a puller, jack the harmonic balancer off of the crank shaft. You can rent a puller at your local auto parts store. It is easiest to access the harmonic balancer through the fender, hence the need to remove the wheel.
5. You should also consider replacing the seal around the harmonic balancer to minimize the possibility of a leak later.
6. Install the new harmonic balancer and tighten the retaining bolt to the specified torque (I don't know this off the top of my head).
7. Replace the belts and wheel, and voila...mission accomplished.

This was a short answer to your question. You may wish to consult a repair manual for illustrations, torque specifications, additional instructions, etc. This job is not for the faint of heart. Good luck!

2000 oldsmobile intrigue horn will not work can someone please help me


Check and see if your horn works first by touching a hot wire from your power supply to where your hot wire hooks on the horn. If it works you may have a bad horn relay switch.

Horn on a 2000 intrigue does not work can u please tell me how to fix it


You will have to find the horn first. Then check if power is getting to the horn, with a multi meter. If you have power then check for a good ground. If you have power then you will know horn is bad. If you have no power to horn you will have to check the fuse Now finally you can buy a new horn or go to your local junk yard and buy a horn from them, for your car.

I have a 1998 oldsmobile intrigue and the horn stopped working. How do i fix the issue or what do i check for


Check if the fuse is blown. If not check if the horn relay clicks when you switched on the horns. If not, the relay maybe defective or the connecting wires are cut or loosely terminated.
