instructions worked nicely for removing this.

I used a putty knife on the bottom edges of the center air vent and it practically fell out.

There wasn't much slack with the cruise control wiring so that connector had to be carefully removed first. That gave me enough room so I could move it around and get the hazard switch connector off.

Using two flat blade screwdrivers was definitely the way to go to get the actual switch out of that holder. Was still pretty difficult as I did it without help.

The switch can be had pretty inexpensively on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1998-2002-Ol...-/151538966187

2001 Turn Signal Switch Issue

Hey everyone, so my gf bought a 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue (from her grandma) with only 25,000km on it. Yes that's right....25,000km. Anyway I drove the car the first 3 months she had it with no issues (I broke my ankle and needed an automatic car)......

she has been driving it for a month or two know and the turn signals would stop working randomly (hazards still worked)....so checked the fuse it was fine....figured it was the whole assembly/switch....so took it out and noticed the contacts were black and burnt up looking. So I went to the junkyard and got myself another switch (good looking contacts), swapped it out....what a pain in the ass btw. So she drove it for a couple weeks no issues at all, then today they started randomly not working here and there.....

I know this switch COULD have the same issue since its a junk yard piece....but as I am unfamiliar with this car, is there something I should be checking before I try and find another switch and swap that out?

What is this a joke or a test?
Must ... refrain ... from ... calling ... GM vehicles ..... flaming ***** ***** ***** **** ***** ********************** *******.

I ... must ..... refrain.

Hey, I still have THREE Olds' cars (as of 08/2018). So, I'm allowed some slack.

Parts fail because of use and because of age.

Since the 70's, to put it "nicely", GM has been infamous for doing analysis and design to prevent parts from being "too expensive from being designed/built/made to last too long".

Regardless of the miles or usage of your GM ******* ******* ******* ****** Olds car, some parts are still expected to fail.
Especially anything exposed to possible rust (like the pure cr*p GM uses for brake lines).

This is also one of those "Model/Make/Manufacture" problems that someone has to know about.

For many GMs, the issue with the turn signals is actually a problem with the emergency flasher switch. On the Intrigue, that switch is on the dash.

Push it in/out a few times.
That will often fix the problem - for a some amount of time.

For a better solution, you want:
ACDelco 10401280 GM Original Equipment Hazard Warning Switch


BTW, also check the rear trailing arms for rust. Along with the brake and fuel lines.
Plus, if your gas gauge still works, don't worry, it'll stop working soon enough.

Still, fwiw, my gas electric pump was still going strong when I replaced the assembly a few months ago. My 2000 Intrigue has ~197,000 miles on it.
I wanted a working gas gauge again. That's a whole other adventure.

Good Luck!
