Question about 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

I have an 87 Cutlass Supreme Brougham with the original radio. I have had it out for repairs and when putting it back I noticed a plug-in on a wire but nothing to plug it in to. I was wondering if anyone knows what this is for. Everything seems to work without it.

If it is a single pink or yellow wire then it goes to the power antennae which was an option on some vehicles. If everything else works properly such as the display, clock, backlighting, and dimmer and you don't have the power antennae then there won't be anything to plug it into. Hope this helps out!

1985 Cutlass Supreme Brougham...clock and radio fuse keeps blowing not long after being replaced.Thanks in advance for your help.

I would suspect that either the radio or the clock has become defective. I suggest unplugging the radio first and see if the symptoms change. If the fuse blows then unplug the clock and see if the symptoms change, does the fuse still blow? Hopefully you are able to narrow your search down to one of those two devices but if not then unfortunately, the 12volt wire, traveling from the fuse to the two parts, has shorted to ground. I hope this helps you. Please let me know how the repair is going, good luck.

Carb loading up and engine surges at idle

I called an old mechanic friend who confirmed what I suspected. The engine control module which controls timing was the culprit. I replaced the defective unit, and the car runs like new.
