According to the 1988 shop manual, the IPC instrument panel cluster - and the overhead map lights
receive power from the computer modules which seem to be located behind the glove box, I plan to
remove the cardboard from the glove box and check for loose connectors. If this fails, I will contact a
self employed mechanic who used to work for an Olds dealer. He is both competent and honest.

A short is likely to blow a fuse or burn something. Most likely you have a loose or cracked printed circuit board behind the dash. If you can get the panel out intact, turn the key on, bend and push/pull various areas in the board while watching the display. You won't get shocked by doing this, but if the printed wiring touches any body metal, it can damage the printed wiring permanently. Check around any socket areas particularly. Good luck!!

1. Check the oil (with dipstick) see if it smells the same as the oil spot you were detecting.
2. Fuel leaks are usually accompanied by a strong odor of fuel and time the vehicle is running.
I will guess that this car has quite a few miles on it. Having the gas ending up in the oil a bit is normal for high miles engines. As they get older they should be changed more often to keep this from happening.
As for the oil leak, only a visual inspection can determine the leak source. I would bet on a seal.

the central power supply module part number needs to be checked. If it has part number 16058596 it needs to be replaced with the updated part number 16088406. I know I had the same problem. no more
