Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue
Uhm i am not sure what you mean with just turn signal flasher i just answered another post with instructions how to replace it. You can see that below. If your wondering why it does that well it seems that the first series of alternators in the Intriques 1998 and up were either too weak or had problems with fluctuating power causing the electronics to act up. Signal light flashers and sockets were the worst (usually passenger side ones). This was rectified by replacing the alternator for a stronger one in the 98's to 2001's however the newer models had lower powered alternators so when you replace that "make sure" you get the one for your vehicle as they are not interchangeable even though they have the same mount.
"That is a very quick and easy fix. I believe you may suffer the constant blowing of your signal light right? (I had it so bad that at some point they would break the same day) Here the good news you do not need to buy them from GM directly at the cost of 80 dollars plus. You will need to find an ACDelco LS115 Socket at any Lordco or other Car Part shop. That should cost around 30 dollars.
The replacing of this is very straight forward. There are two slats on the back of your headlight (white) which clamp the light to the frame. All you do is pull these up and remove them from the pins they are on and pull the whole headlight assembly out. (total of 15 second deal)
Then take the plastic cover of the signal light bay rotate the signal light socket to the left and pull carefully. Pull out the Bulb (if you need it and it works) then remove the little plug on the other end of the socket (the plug with the cables for power to the socket) and attach it to the new socket. Insert bulb place headlight assembly in place the white slats back on the pins and clamp the headlight assembly back to the frame...
Total time for that procedure should be 50 seconds ;) and you won't have to pay a mechanic for that."
