Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Aurora
Flicking paring lights and buzzing in steering col. is caused by the multifunction switch.(directional stick)its caused by too much grease in switch and overtime grease travels inside the connects and shorts it out.that buzzin sound you here is actualy your parking lights coming on and off so fast it sounds like buzzin.there is a solution online that u take off the steering colum cover underneath and where the little holes are on the multifunction switch you blow contact cleaner and compressed air and it seems to get or at least push the grease outa the connectors.it seems to be a good solution but problems may return after awhiles.only other solution is to replace the whole switch.
as far as the blower motor changing speeds by itself,sometimes shutting off is caused by the blower control module located under passenger dash.if theres other issues with your cars electronics i would have the body control module tested as well.thats located under the drivers side dash.
the traction control light coming on and off is more than likely related to a bad sensor on 1 of your wheel hubs.theres 1 sensor for each tire and they are know to go bad on all gm cars giving traction control issues.on aruoras they r connected to the hub as 1 unit so u have to replace the whole assembly (cant just replace sensor)

I removed on of the wires to the Headlamp Control Unit. The buzzing sound is caused by the mechanical switch in the HCL continually flipping.

Get to the headlight switch on the column and spray contact cleaner in there.
