Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue
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.

SOURCE: location of fuse boxes
there are actually two fuse boxes... one should be under the dash on the drivers side and the other is located in the engine compartment near the battery

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

most likely its your muti-funtion switch in the steering column.but first check your turn signal flasher & your emergency flasher

Testimonial: "It's looks like multi-function switch because all bulbs and fuse are look okay. I don't know how to replace the switch thus i have to go the shop. "

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.
