THIS CAR IS AN ELECTRICAL NIGHTMARE. THE INTRIGUE SEEMS TO HAVE SO MANY OF THE SAME ALERO PROBLEMS, BUT NO RESOLUTION FROM GM REGARDING THEM. VEHICLE CONTINUALLY WILL: NOT START, START AND THEN DIE, HAVE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER GO HAYWIRE (ALL GAUGES DROP TO THE BOTTOM, THEN JUMP BACK UP, LIGHTS COMING ON THEN GOING OFF - ABS, CHECK ENGINE, SERVICE ENGINE, ETC) ADDITIONALLY - SECURITY (PASSLOCK) LIGHT WILL COME ON SOMETIMES WHEN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER GOES NUTS, AND THEN WILL STAY ON. THIS OFTEN LEADS TO A NO-START CONDITION. IF BATTERY IS DISCONNECTED FOR A FEW MINUTES, THIS WILL USUALLY RESOLVE THE ISSUE. SOMETIMES, WHEN THERE'S A NO-START (NO CRANKING) - TURNING THE CAR TO ACC, AND THEN MOVING THE SHIFTER THROUGH A COUPLE GEARS, WILL RESOLVE THE ISSUE. WHEN THERE'S A NO-START (WITH CRANKING) - THIS CAN EVENTUALLY BE RESOLVED BY DISCONNECTING THE BATTERY FOR A LONG TIME. THE GAUGES GOING CRAZY WHILE DRIVING: OFTEN, WHEN NOT ACTIVELY PRESSING THE ACCELERATOR, THE GAUGES WILL DROP TO THE BOTTOM (EMPTY GAS TANK LIGHT COMES ON, RPM, GAS, AND HEAT NEEDLES DROP TO ZERO; SPEED USUALLY REMAINS FUNCTIONAL). WHEN PRESSING THE ACCELERATOR, THEY ALL POP BACK UP TO FUNCTIONAL (ONLY TO DROP AGAIN WHEN THERE'S NO ACCELERATION). THE KEY - CAN BE TAKEN OUT OF THE IGNITION SWITCH WHILE THE CAR IS RUNNING, WITH NO RESISTANCE. I HAVE REPLACED: BATTERY MULTIPLE TIMES, BATTERY CABLES ONCE, THE IGNITION SWITCH & CYLINDER HAVE BEEN REPLACED AT LEAST ONCE OR TWICE BY A MECHANIC TRYING TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE; WIRING HARNESSES WITHIN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT AND BELOW THE STEERING WHEEL HAVE BEEN REPLACED.

THE IGNITION SWITCH -- WHICH WAS REPLACED IN 2012 WITH A NEW GM DEALER PART -- TURNS BY ITSELF TO THE ACC SETTING WHILE DRIVING (ENGINE CUTS OUT AND POWER STEERING LOSES POWER). I SUSPECT THAT THIS IS RELATED TO THE GM IGNITION SWITCH RECALL PROBLEM, BUT SINCE THIS MODEL IS NOT ON THE RECALL LIST, I AM ENCOUNTERING A CHALLENGE TO GET IT REPAIRED. PLEASE PHONE ONLY -- NOT AN E-MAIL USER

WHEN DRIVING MY 1999 OLDSMOBILE INTRIGUE AT APPROXIMATELY 45MPH I HIT A VERY LARGE POT HOLE IN THE STREET. IT JARRED THE VEHICLE AND SWITCHED THE IGNITION IN MY VEHICLE OFF. I LOST POWER IN THE VEHICLE AND MY ABILITY TO PROPERLY STEER THE VEHICLE. I WAS THANKFULLY IN A LANE WHERE I WAS ABLE TO PULL THE VEHICLE OVER WITHOUT ISSUE (POWER STEERING WAS NOT AVAILABLE AND THE WHEEL WAS ALMOST LOCKED AND IT REQUIRED A LOT OF PULLING TO BE ABLE TO PULL OVER) AND RESTART THE CAR. I DID HAVE A LARGE/HEAVY KEY RING ON MY KEYS AT THAT TIME.
