Oldsmobile Intrigue Problem Codes/TSBs



  • Thanks for the update on the brake module. You said "a little tough, but not too bad." Could you tell us how and what you removed and sent to Modulemaster. Was the car drivable while the module was out?

    How long did the repair take and how long to install the new part?

    Appreciate your help.

    The EBCM is attached to the Brake Pressure Modulator. It's behind the air cleaner housing on my 2002 Intrigue. On some earlier years I was told it is inside the car. I don't think I could exactly reiterate the step by step procedure I did, but basically I had to move some things out of the way, like the body brace (long black steel brace that helps keep the front end rigid), cruise control module, air cleaner housing (top and middle, but not the very bottom). You will need a T-20 torx screwdriver (Sears, AutoZone, etc.).

    Disconnect the battery (which I forgot to do, but no damage was done).
    Disconnect the large electrical connector in the front of the module (pull the white locking tab to the left about 3 inches).
    Remove the 6 torx-head screws (this is a little tough because the bottom two are hard to see. Also, if your torx screwdriver is too long it will make it difficult. Try not to drop the screws. I was lucky.
    Once the screws are out you can separate the module from the BPM by pulling it apart. It's a little tricky here because there are about 12 solenoid coils that you have to clear while pulling this thing away. The hardest part was putting it back on and trying to line them all up. I got frustrated and walked away for about 30 minutes, but I tried it again and it fell into place.
    One more thing: there is an electrical plug on the bottom of the module that you have to disconnect after you separate the module from the BPM.

    I think I made this sound tougher than it really is. If you've had any luck working on cars, then you can probably do it. If you are not very mechanically inclined, then don't do it. It took about 2-1/2 hours total. I could probalby do it again in an hour.

    Yes, the car is driveable just fine, but no ABS, just regular brakes. None of this requires opening the hydraulic brake lines.

    Modulemaster turned it around in 2 or 3 days, I can't remember. I used USPS Priority mail with insurance. It only took 2 days to get there and I live 2000 miles away.

    Modulemaster has lots of info on their website. Mine is working great so far and I would recommend them.

    What makes you think your EBCM is bad?
  • Can anyone help with this? Reader showed TPS low voltage. Car runs, starts fine (after replacing fuel pump), but does not know it's time to shift from 1st to second gear. Does it point to replacing the sensor, or is there something else I should check? Vacume?
  • took car to get check out code po741 tcc stuck off is that hard to fix al
  • Got this code twice now. Cleared it, and it again came back. I know it relates to the evap system, what is common on a 98 Intrigue?? Gas Cap? Is there anything more common that sets this fault on these cars?

    Can anyone describe the procedure to get the Theft-loc codes from the radio prior to disconnecting the battery?

    I changed the battery twice in my Intrigue and don't remember having a problem with the theft-loc radio controls. You may want to check the owner's manual or the driver sider door jam.
  • Anyone have any ideas ?? Just replaced the canister purge solenoid and all vacuum hoses...

    Still getting a p1676 code...canister purge solenoid...anyone have any ideas on what it might be ??

    I need to pass emissions test,and car wont pass with 'Service Engine Soon light on.

    Since you put in a new one, first thing to check would be the connections. Is that the only trouble code you're seeing?

    1676 is the solenoid valve...but there isn't just one...there are two even three of those on any car.

    I have a 98 Olds Intrigue...I changed both in the front on the engine and the other one was under the wheel well....I am still getting 1676.

    The only trouble code I have is 1676.

    I checked all connections.
