Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

Open Question

Dash lights and tail light go off and on

I found out there is a box (module) located on the left side under the dash. On the pin was burning out and there was a loose connection with big 6 pin connectror. I put some apoxy to stable the moving pin.
It worked for almost a year. Now they go off and on again. I took that module out again. I drilled hole on that connector and soldered a wire
from pin to the back of connector wire . But the problem is still there and I hit under the dash they come on. I want to fix it permanenty.
Please help.

Loose wires are the hardest things to fix as even the best most experience mechanics don't like doingf them unless theirs a nice fat payment involved then its yah man I'll tak this time and materil fix till you find open check book job !!! No something like the bulb thats in the shifter ( console ) Door switches remote mirror or power window or lock switch If they don't work maybe their brocken wire is touching gronfd sometimes. If the lights in the door or shifer dontwork the door hinge area is suspect as the wires flex as the door is opened and closed the wire is the same color as it goes to all of these lights rember too that theres a wire in the radio too and if the car has an after market radio in it its the first place to cheack as the installers cause this problem way more often than the car wearing out does. remove and unplugg the radio if after market and root around in there to see if any one laid out hte wire bare and nort hooked up or taped. Many after market radios light as their turned on and dont use this wire but the factory radio does. Another car questioner didn't tell everything thats wrong to save for another question When I found out later the other things they had worked on and still were having troble with I could then figger out the real problem as I've seen so many and heard about em all. All problems effect other things therefore all problems or repairs halfway done or done too cheaply come into the picture Like your problem you might come back and say the power antenna has been broken Will it make the dash lights ficcker Yes. the tail light or front parking light or marker lite is busted bad gone or hanging under the car or just plain gone will thesthtings make the dash lights filcker? Yes

Hello Cindy

I went through the diagrams for your Oldsmobile and the only item that can cause your problem is the lamp control module.
My first thought when I seen this was "is the system overloading this module?" But then I realized the fuse would protect the circuit, not the module. So therefore it has to be it.
Here is a location diagram for you. It is in the drivers side kick panel. It will need to be removed in order to access it. Fairly easy job.


Thank you for using FixYa.

I need to know were to find the DRL Module for a 2003 F-150 4x4. My hi and low beem lights work ok , and the auto light sencor works . Its that my Day time running lights do not come on .

The wiring diagram does not show a stand alone drl module for the 03 f150. However it shows 2 drl
relays located in aux. relay box #2 located behind the right side of the dash, left of the glove box.
Also there is the drl resistor located behind the grill, right of the left headlight. Relay #1 is fused at
fuse #5-15a in the fuse block under the left dash. Relay #2 uses fuse #26-10a under left of dash.
Hope this helps.

Tail lights wont come on

two places left drivers side under the dash are on the side of the dash by the door for the interior, some cars have them on the right side of the dash also. There is also another fuse box under the hood. If you have your owners manual this is all listed in it, and the exact fuse location for your breaklights, I think your will be on the drivers side interior Hope this helps you! Merry Christmas and God Bless!

Dash light and tail lights not working

The dash and tail lights are controled by the first "click" of the headlight switch found on the turn signal arm.

If the fuses are good, then your turn signal arm has failed.

First click is running lights (dash and outside marker lights), second is headlights.

The 1st position of the 2 position switch has contacts internally that have worn and no longer complete the circuit.

Replace the turn signal arm.
