Having problems with your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue ?
I am having a problem with false starts in very cold weather. I Have 120000 mile on my vehicle. In warm weather and throughout the summer no problems at all with starting, but the minute it gets cold the false start could happen anytime. If it has a false start, i can wait 10 minutes exactly every time and the car will start or turn right over like their was never a problem. I stopped at my local midas store, an they thought maybe it was security related. I don't know I need help?
.++i think you may have 2 problems related to cold temps problem one is the cylinder for the key in the cold has tumblers that raise up when you insert key if its cold they can stick and that can give you the secuity light try lightly lubing key with grafite or use new key and grafite. also second problem with no cranking would be the ignition swicth itself if that power wire from the key switch does not get to the anti theft module when you turn on the ignition you will get the security light. the module has more than one power wire going to it.it needs two see the power when when the key is turned or it wont work.the ignition electrical switchs are fairly comon for gm cars and trucks also not braggiing iam and eletrcal mad man. hope this helps seen same problem i live in minneasota usa
