Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
What is most likely happening is that the Air Injection Pump, which pumps air into the exhaust system as part of the emission system, has failed. If the electric motor that runs the air pump locks up it will then cause the 30 amp fuse to blow as soon as it is commanded "on" by the engine computer. Usually what happens is that moisture builds up in the pump over time which finally causes it to fail and the only fix it to replace the pump. There were some updated service parts for some of these pumps but I'm not sure if there are any for yours. If you contact a GM parts department witht he LAST 8 digits of your VIN number they should be able to tell you what the pump costs and if there are any updated replacement parts for it. I'm guessing that the "check engine" lamp is probably on at this time also and it's most likely due to the pump not working. Good luck and hope this helps you out some!
