Question about Oldsmobile Aurora

3 Answers

Have 1997 Aurora. Yesterday, my wife was driving the car when smoke started coming thru AC vents. I'm sure there's a short in wiring somewhere. AC still works, but headlights/taillights are not working. Looking for troubleshooting help.

HI..
First the A/C. Vents and ducts are Completly APART of the
Electrical wires.. can be wires BUT outside of the A/C housing assemble.
For the Smoke from the a/c vents. Check the antifreeze level.
and see under the car for any advice of Coolant.
when the HEATER CORE. come damaged. loss coolant. and smel bad.

For the lights;
First check all the fuses. The FUSE fo the Park lights is
PARKLP fuse 25amp. Located undel left REAR passanger seat. Fuse block..
OK.. The HEAD light use a CIRCUIT BREAKER "HDLP" 20amp.
LOcated on the engine compartment fuse box.
Check the head light switch.
and the turn signal switch.
BUT your lights use a little Module called. LAMP CONTROL MODULE.. Located a left side of the Instrument panel.
You can try to locate and inspect.

OK.. i hope this help to try to diagnostic your vehicle.

    There are two ways to check fuses the first is the good old fashion way of removing each fuse and visually inspecting each fuse. It's time consuming but effective. And the easy way, but you need a "test light" before you can begin. Turn the key to the "on" position (do not start), ground your test light lead to a good ground source, like a metal brace under the dash, seat mount bolt or under hood brace. Then lightly touch the service port at the top of the fuse on both sides. If the test light illuminates on both sides of the fuse, the fuse is ok and working properly. If the fuse lights the test light on one side it is blown and needs to be replaced.

That sounds like a serious issue. You SAFEST bet is to take it to a certified mechanic, but if you're intent on trying to do it yourself, I suggest buying a Hanes or Chilton's manual for that model car. It will have the wiring systems diagrams and is only about $15 at most autoparts stores. Without it, there's little hope.

Smoke coming through air vents


Is it smoke? Or is it steam? If it's really smoke, it will smell like burning wires and you have an electrical short somewhere. You're going to have a fire unless it's fixed.
My guess is that it's probably not smoke or you would have already had a fire.
With that said I'm going to say that it's steam in which case your heater core (which is a small radiator located under the dash) is leaking coolant and the resulting steam is rising through the vents. The steam will have a sort of sweet and yes, a steamy smell to it. It will also leave a funny film from the radiator coolant coating the inside of the windshield.
The heater core should be replaced if my assumptions are correct.

Check the vac lines for leaks on the drivers side rear of the engine compartment. The ones going to the vac ball attached to the hood.

Smoke/Vapor coming from Air Vents


The whole dashboard of the vehicle will need to be disassembled, removal of stereo, temp controls, air vents, the dashboard will need to actually be pulled away from the front of the cabin, It is a very labor intensive repair.

Bmw325I started it up and thick smoke started coming through vents into cab


Was the AC on when you started the car? And was there a hissing sound when it happend? If so you were leaking the AC systems R-134a refrigerant into the car from the evaporator.
