Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass

1 Answer

No horn, ABS light on Check engine light on

I am having the same issues. One day I had to use my horn, hit it kinda hard, then about 10 minutes later as I was driving down the highway, it went off all by itself. Only way I could get it to stop was to actually hit it. It now no longer works. My engine runs hard at 1st startup, then after a few minutes it quiets down. engine light is on. RPMS's will drop down to 0 then bounce back up to where they were while driving, causing car to buck, and my ABS light came on after getting brake pads replaced. Not sure what;s going on here. I've had CO2 sensor replaced, new spark plugs and wires. Changed out the fuel filter. yet the bucking and rpms dropping still exists. If you figure out whats going on with yours let me know.

Check to make sure the plugged wires back into wheel sensors when they changed pads

Car intermittantly wont start


This kinda sounds like a bad ignition module which is inside the distributor. Sometimes with older vehicles like this it is best to replace the entire distributor with a rebuilt unit from your auto parts store. There are other parts inside the distributor which are old and worn and might cause issues later. I think the module costs about $50 or so and the complete distributor probably about $150

Hello! There are multiple Technical Service Bulletins (TSB'S) issued by General Motors which address this issue...When you get the message "Engine Disabled" the Check Engine Light will come on...This means the computer has a trouble code stored...An example of a code would be; P1516 or P2135...etc...If you can get to an auto parts store they will read the code/codes for free...Once you have that information I can offer a solution...A defective sensor which the code will point to is usually the reason the engine is disabled...Send a comment with code information...Guru...Saailer

C0550 is the code for the ABS module. It is on the frame under the vehicle around the drivers door area. It is a module with all the brake lines coming from it. Reset the trouble codes and see if the problem returns. If it does, the module is not serviceable and will need to be replaced.

Very probably a leaking exhaust. Its probably the joint between the manifold and the exhaust system. The ABS issue is probably a red herring.

Note. Get it checked out as that smell contains a lot of Carbon Monoxide and could cause you to pass out and die. Serious stuff!

Check engine light on Horn blows was blowing


1. Check engine lights come on for numerous reasons ranging from a bad CO2 sensor to the Catalytic Convertor being bad...a garage has the computer and the codes to tell you what is wrong, rough running, again, cold be numerous problems, fuel filter bad, worn plugs, broken plug wire/s. Sometimes, the reason the light comes on doesn't hurt the engine at all, and sometimes it means you NEED to get it looked at right now!

2. Horn could, and probably did have a short circuit somewhere, but really how often do you use a horn?

3. One more time, numerous reasons why the ABS indicator is on.

Without the vehicle being right in front of a person, especailly when three troubles are listed it's very-very hard, if not impossible, to make a good call.

I hope this helps you out some how.

ABS light/not starting


I would jumpstart the car and let it run for 15 minutes.If it doesent stay running the altenator is bad--if it stays running and the next morning it doesnt start the battery is bad.
