What will disable starter on 99 olds intrigue how to repair going crazy

Battery cables together ??
If the security light is on, the system has disabled the starter and the fuel injectors.
The problem would be a faulty chip in the key, the sensor in the lock cylinder, or the VATS module.
If the security light is not on, it could be the neutral safety switch.

I need to change the starter

The starter on 3.5L engines is on the backside of the engine block slightly towards the drivers side.

I just changed the starter in my 2000, 3.5L, V6, Oldsmobile Intrigue. I am going from memory here but the sizes should get you fairly close. The starter is held on with 2 bolts. I used a 13mm (or maybe 11mm or 12mm) socket with a 12" extender to remove the bolts. There are 2 wires attached to the starter. I used an 8mm socket (but a deep socket, the kind of socket that is ~3" long) to remove the small wire. I used ~11mm socket (deep socket) to remove the large wire. Everything was metric. It was not an overly difficult repair. Wiggling the starter in and out of position was probably the hardest part. Remember to disconnect your battery before starting.

Wer can i find the crank sensors on a 99 olds intrigue 3.5 engine

The crank sensor is located below the front exhaust manifold and above the starter. To access it, you must lift the front of the vehicle, and remove the starter. Once the starter is removed the sensor is visible. Because of the poor location and poor GM engineering these sensors fail. You have excessive heat from the exhaust and oil leaking from the valve covers that short them out. Also once the sensor is replaced, it must undergo a re-learn process. Unfortunately this process can only be performed by a GM dealer via their computer system.....if you need further assistance, feel free to post them on FYa...hopefully this helps!!

99 olds intrigue with the 3.5 motor and ABS light staying on

What you will have to do is get the codes from the ABS module.This will let you know what sensor or wiring is bad.But you need the code to diagnose the problem.Yes it could be a hub but you need to know which hub bearing.It could also be wiring.Best to get codes.Hope this helps.A Good luck.

99 olds intrigue ignition switch problem

You have to replace the ignition system, all the 99's came with an anti theft unit built in. The ignition is built into the system, so that could be the reason why.

Older cars sometimes have many difficult problems, especially the wires problem, it is very hard to find out which wire got trouble, I think your Olds wire got hot sometimes before and some wires connected together and by pass.

Olds is GMC products, the plastic sucks easy to melt, sometimes also cause the engine over heat, because the cooling fan doesn’t work right.

Good luck, my friend.
