1997 Olds LSS problems

Hello all. New to the forum. My brother in law gave me is 97 LSS (it's for my daughter). It has been sitting around for a few months due because I had issues getting the title straightened out (long story). Anyway, I have a few issues, and I really can't seem to find much info on this car out there.

Main issues are;
No Heat
No Blinkers

For the heat, I thought it was the relay, but I have climate control (bought the relay, but no where to put it). I checked the voltage at the blower motor, and it only reads 2V at any speed. I'm guessing it's the control module, but don't want to spend $150 if it may not be. I do hear a sound when I turned it on that goes off after awhile, but no blowing. I pulled the fan (couldn't get it all the way out), and it was clean in there and the blade spun easily.

For the blinkers, I think it worked the first time I took it out, but now nothing (either side). I'm guessing the relay, but for the life of me, I can't find the damn thing.

Any help with confirmation of my diag, or other things that may help would be greatly appreciated. It's cold out (got lucky and it hit 45 today), so I can't spend much time out there, but would be nice if I can get these 2 things solved.

Other issues are, gas gauge only seemed to have learned 2 letter during school (E and F). At first it read full, the next day empty, now full again. Put $20 in, and that seemed to fill it. Fuel pump seems to make a racket. Tape stuck in deck. Small coolant leak. Head lights seem to come on sometimes by themselves. Plus a couple of other things. None of these really bother me much and will get to them when it gets warm out. It was a free car, so as long as it can move from location A to location B I am happy.

Thanks for any help. Paul.

Relays are under the hood at the firewall. That block thing in the back covered with a shroud. Fuses underneath the dash on the left hand side on the drivers side. Other relays and fuses are behind the glove box or store box again the wall inside the instrumentation panel.

Change fuel filter first to see if that works. Then look at changing the fuel pressure regulator. Up front under the hood. If not, then the fuel pump. I had to do mine last year.



Tape stuck in deck.

I replaced the stereo with another Oldsmobile stereo I bought online.


Small coolant leak.

Intake manifold may need replacing. Known issue.

I had that issue. I had to replace the computer. It was impacting the bcm( body control module) and ecm ( engine control module). The computers do not last forever. Underneath the dash on the passenger side.
