It happened to my 98 Intrigue. It stopped as soon as I changed the sockets. It is very simple to do this, just pull it out the the plug from the connector about 4 inches from the socket. I got used ones at the junk yard, 2 bucks a piece. Been working fine for almost 2 years.

What is the process for replacing the headlamp


Replacing headlamp bulbs
Handle a halogen headlamp bulb carefully
and keep out of children’s reach. Grasp the
bulb only by its plastic base and do not touch the
glass. The oil from your hand could cause the bulb
to break the next time the headlamps are
operated.
If the bulb is accidentally touched, it should be
cleaned with rubbing alcohol before being used.
To remove the headlamp bulb:
1. Make sure headlamp switch is in OFF position,
then open the hood. If you are replacing the driver
side headlamp, unclip the electronic module on the
right side of the battery and move it out of the way.
2. Locate the headlamp bulb through the hole in the
upper radiator support assembly.
3. Release clip and
disconnect the
electrical connector
from the bulb.
4. Remove the bulb
retaining ring by
rotating it
counterclockwise
(when viewed from the
rear) about 1/8 turn to
free it from the bulb socket, and slide the ring off
the plastic base. Keep the ring to retain the new
bulb.
5. With out turning, remove the old bulb from the
lamp assembly by gently pulling it straight out of the
lamp assembly.

To install the new bulb:
1. With the flat side of
the bulb’s plastic base
facing upward, insert
the glass end of the
bulb into the lamp
assembly. You may
need to turn the bulb left or right to align the
grooves in the plastic base with the tabs in the lamp
assembly. When the grooves are aligned, push the
bulb into the lamp assembly until the plastic base
contacts the rear of the lamp assembly.
2. Install the bulb retaining ring over the plastic base
until it contacts the rear of the socket by rotating
clockwise until you feel a “stop.”
3. Install the electrical connector into the rear of the
plastic base until it snaps, locking it into position.
4. Turn the headlamps on and make sure they work
properly. If the headlamp was correctly aligned
before you changed the bulb, you should not need to
align it again.

Turn signals not flashing on a 1998 Old Intrigue,


Do the lights come on but, just don't flash? It could be the turn signal flasher. The owners manual should show the location.

Turn signals are blinking fast and the front signals don't blink


The bulb sockets are melted (not the bulb) - go to the junk yard and pick up a couple and keep a couple in your glove box - Have the same problem.

Electrical Problems


The parking light: This is a common problem I see with Intrigues everywhere. I own a 1998 Intrigue and my sister has a 2000- both had this problem. Replacing the bulb alone will not fix this. I replaced the socket ($20-there were bad contacts). I replaced my socket years ago and never had a problem with the light again.

As far as your other issues- I don't know, I'm having other issues with my car currently- hence why I am on this site.

Installing a turn signal flasher on and Olds Intrigue 1998


If you look under the dash, you'll see the part hanging off the wiring harness or it may be plugged in at or near the fuse block. You'll be looking under the driver side of the dash.
