Question about Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

I have a 1998 olds silohouette mini van. The dash lights, hvac lights, and radio lights stopped working. However the dome lights work with the doors open and when the doors are shut you can turn the dome lights on with the switch but no other inside lights work at all. I have checked all the fuses and they are all good. Help me please!

MY RADIO IS NOT WORKING


You should explain the circumstances surrounding this problem such as. . .the radio stopped working after my two year old stuck a penny in the 12v outlet. Does the dome/cabin light work when you open the door or turn it on? Check the fuses.

The warning bell and dome lights come on when I slow down as in stopping at a stop sign. The dome lights also stay on after I stop close doors and leave car. They remain on for up to an hour or so.


this is almost alwys caused by defective door coutesy light/door ajar switch contacts is the sliding doors of the van,have done dozens at work for this problem.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

1998 grand am dome light does not go out warning bell goes on when i reach 75 mph


If your dome light is on whether you are go 75mph or not you my want to check your dash light dimmer switch to make sure it is not the cause of the dome light. If not Check you door switches to ensure they are working next check your door latches to make sure they are engaging properly the Bell is possibly a warning of possible passenger loss due to door insecurity

Power winidows, wipers, dome lights not working on 1998 explorer


This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.

These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.

New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.

Good Luck

The "door is locked" switch mechanism in the driver's door is not engaging when the door is closed. It is inside the door panel and right on the latch. It closes a circuot when the door is latched.

I was able to tighten the mounting on mine with some twist-wire and been right as rain for 3, 4 years now
