Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
I have a 92 Cutlass Siera, I dont have air conditioning, the belt is not on the compressor which tells me its not working. My daughter bought this car cheap and didnt care about air....I do.
I want to plug a fan into the lighter socket but that also seems to not be working. I checked the console fuse and when I pulled it out everything else on the console went out so I know the fuse is good. so unless it's on a different fuse it has to be the wiring. What type of place or mechanic should I consult? As you might note I am trying to keep this on the cheap.
First I would check to make sure that the A/C compressor isn't locked up as that may be why the belt isn't on it. If the compressor is bad then the repairs can become very expensive in a hurry. $600+. There should be a seperate fuse just for the lighter, usually a 20 amp that says "CIG LTR" located at the underdash fuse panel. You could have a bad or worn lighter socket but usually the wiring is fine unless someone has tapped into it for an aftermarket stereo system.

Insert the square tip of a 1/2-inch socket wrench into the square hole in the center of the serpentine belt's adjustment pulley. The adjustment pulley is the smallest pulley the belt wraps around.
Pull the adjustment pulley toward the engine with the socket wrench to release the tension on the serpentine belt, then pull the belt off the air conditioning compressor's pulley.
Remove the bolts which secure the air conditioning compressor to its mounting brackets with an open-end wrench, then position the compressor to the side of the engine compartment. Do not disturb the hoses that attach to the compressor.
Pull the electrical connection off the crankshaft sensor.
Remove the two bolts that secure the crankshaft sensor against the engine with an open-end wrench, then slide the sensor out of the engine.
Slide the new crankshaft sensor into the engine, then install and tighten the sensor's two securing bolts with an open-end wrench.
Press the electrical connection onto the crankshaft sensor.
Position the air conditioning compressor against its mounting brackets, then install and tighten the compressor's bolts with an open-end wrench.
Pull the serpentine belt's adjustment pulley toward the engine with the socket wrench, then position the belt onto the air compressor's pulley.
