Question about Oldsmobile Cars & Trucks
I'd say the alternator is not charging (but you should see a warning light on the dash) or the diodes in the alternator have failed. These normally stop a backwards drain to earth when the car is switched off. An auto electrician can test it.

Perhaps it needs a new alternator .

maybe the wire is severed where the door (drver dr) pivots. thats what was wrong with mine. there is a rubber boot with crinkles in it that hold all the wires together. you can also try replacing the switch board that controls the wndws on the drvr dr. hope that helps.

Get a Chilton's book on the car. It will take you thru the whole job, and give you the torque specs for putting it back together. You will need a torque wrench, foot pounds, and a good socket set.

flasher switch location The flasher switch for the 94 cutlass is not where you would think it would be it is behind and off to the side of the ashtray or below the radio.
New Answer Headline The above is accurate; getting to it is a little tricky. Open the glove box and remove the tether wire connection at the door by unscrewing the SHC screw with a T-15 Torx driver. This will expose 2 of the 4 fuse panel mounting screws. Use an 8mm socket to remove all four and wiggle the panel out. The flasher is behind and to the left in the harness itself, not on a terminal block. Use a straight blade screwdriver to gently pry the two prong connection from the unit (Mine was an OEM Wagner - bright yellow.)
It depends if you're talking about the turn signal flasher or the emergency flasher. The emergency flasher is directly behind the glovebox. If you're referring to the turn signal flasher, I just replaced mine last night without having to mess with the fusebox or glovebox. It turns out that it was attached by a clip on the right side of the ashtray frame inside the dashboard. I took out the removable "cup" part of the ashtray, then removed the two upper and two lower ashtray frame screws. Next, I pulled the frame forward and disconnected the small ashtray light. The power wire for the cigarette lighter can stay attached. After I slide the frame out the rest of the way it was easy to get to and replace the flasher unit.
