Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

2000 Intrigue won't start, no p/windows radio, interior lights. Headlights, dashlights work. I had to replace the alternator as a diode was blown evidently causing a fuse to blow, which has been replaced. If I try to start it by jumping the terminals at the relay in fuse block it will start. Or if I connect my test light to the yellow/blk wire (#76) at the PCM it will start as well. Is this a PCM or BCM problem?

Sounds like there is a bad fuse somewhere. Not a pcm problem, but could be bcm. Check ignition and bcm fuses with ohmmeter.

SOURCE: tail light fuse keeps blowing

it sounds like it may be an electrical problem, you ae going to need to follow the wiring harnesses from the tail lites back to the fuse pannel as well as the dash lites if you don't find where it is shorting out. how ever the first place I would look is to see if you have a plug in for towing a trailer and if so I would start there. I would also check the pigtails where the lites plug in to see if they are all rite.

SOURCE: 2000 olds sillouette, headlights on, no brake/turn signal light

i would chk. break light switch. should be under dash above break pedel arm. emergency flashers will be on its own fuse, turn signals should have own fuse. as far as interior lights surging that could be ground or alt. chk. battery cables make sure clean and tight. not good idea unhooking bat. cable when running, one spark or surge to computer could burn up computer. besides that realy won't tell you anything if a diod is bad in alt. it may not show up until you tax the system. its best to take it someware like autozone, or any major auto parts store and have it chk.

SOURCE: 1996 olds cutlass supreme won't crank

This isn't really a solution, but I have had this exact same problem for two years now.

Here is what I have been doing to make it work. Try jiggling or moving the gear selector, fastening the seat belts and retrying to turn the key several times. For me, it finally starts right up.

I know that sounds crazy but you might want to try it.

You folks never learn, you can't use just any aftermarket sound system in these newer vehicles. The electronics are all networked together. I have no idea what you have damaged.

Won't start

It ended up being corroded wiring. Apparently the wiring from the steering harness to the fuse box under the hood was corroded & had to be replaced.

93 miata, only the headlights work. it keeps blowing the btn fuse as soon as i put it in. are the diodes bad on the alternator?

Hi Lee and Chuck, Seems you have a serious short circuit in your vehicle. The fact that when the vehicle stands it will need to be jump started would seem to confirm the same. The power seems to be draining somewhere! The fuses which blow will give an indication of which circuit is shorting. If your brother wired in a music system or radio, disconnect it and then see if the fuses still blow? If they stay fine you know where to start. The music system is connected to the lights for night illumination of the controls. It may be that the earth connection has been mixed up with a power cable? If the vehicle runs fine during the day and does not give problems when restarting, it would be doubtful that there is damage to the alternator. You can check it fairly easily by connecting a test meter to each of the terminals. Start the vehicle and if while cranking the voltage drops below 8 volts, get the battery replaced. If it remains at about ten during starting that's fine. Measure the battery voltage before starting and confirm 12 volts. Once started the voltage should be at about 13 volts if the alternator is charging and when the horn is pressed and the wipers turned on together with the heated window, the voltage should climb to about 13 and a half volts. If the voltage remains unchanged or drops the alternator is damaged. Usually the head lights would be turned on to carry out this simple test but as the fuses blow you can do that when you've found the short circuit. Good luck and best regards John

Battery replaced. Now, wipers, dash gauges, locks dont work and headlights stay on?

check all the fuses and replace any that are blown. also check beattery wires and make sure the positive wires are not touching anything metal.look for burnt marks or black spots on the wires too. also have the battery fuse/relay checked.

I changed stereo and now the dashlights do not work

Check your park light fuse. You may have blown the fuse for the dashlights/park lights by accidentally grounding the night illumination wire, located in the radio wiring. That wire runs from the dash lights to the radio, to illuminate the radio at night. Alternately, if the park light fuse keeps blowing when you replace it, you might've hooked that night light wire up to the wrong wire on your radio.

There are 2 diodes in the fuse box under the hood, there is a spare diode in the interior fuse box. Take that diode and try to swap it with one of the 2 under the hood. Guaranteed one of the diodes under the hood is blown. Do not listen to the other guys advice, he is an idiot!

Electrical problem

I just had the same issues. No headlights, interior lights, power door locks, radio controls on steering wheel, or dash lights. Pulled every fuse in cab and under hood, not a one was bad. I disconnected the battery terminals for a few minutes. When I reconnected them every thing was working.
