Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

On an 1999 oldsmobile intrigue my tail lights and dashboard lights(only the rpm dial, mph, and lights for my A/C and heat) go out simultaneously. The funny thing is they work about 1/3 the time. What could be the problem?

Hello Alex.
The affected lights you are describing are on the same circuit from the fuse.
You will need to trace this circuit to find the intermittent open circuit.
I would start with the fuse. It may be cracked.
Also look at the terminals where the fuse goes in for corrosion.
You may end up tracing the harness for the problem if it isn't at the fuse box.
I doubt your light switch is the issue if your front park lights are working normally.
This could be a tricky one to find if the lights are working when you are looking for the problem.

I hope this guides you to a solution.

well it sounds like a computer issue the one that needs replacement is the " body ecu " it controls the lights, heater, seat belt sound and etc. should be under the dash.

I am having a hard time starting my 1999 oldsmobile intrigue and when it starts white smoke is coming out tail pipe and change oil light and engine coolant light os coming on and it overheats after driving...

I am sure this is a head casket problem. If coolant gets into your cylinders, it will cause the white smoke, and also thin the oil if it gets in the base pan. Do not operate this vehicle until it has been checked by a mechanic, or you will ruin the motor

Overheating Intrigue

Check your coolant level and see if it is down. If you have checked heads you will notice your engine oil beginning to turn milky white.

If you want a more complete check for cracked heads, plug all spark plugs, and if you can get a coolant pressure tester, pump it up to 12 or 13 psi and then crank the engine over. Watch for water to spray out of one of the cylinders.
