Does anyone know how to access the window or door thing that controls the airflow to the two climate zones? I read on another forum about someone just wiggling the door a bit on their bravada to fix the same problem of having cold air on one side and not so cold on the other.
Did you ever find where that window/door thing is?

I have the same problem with my 2002 olds intrigue. I have the dealer service manuals and from what I have researched, I believe the actuators simply need recalibrated by "removing the battery positive voltage circuit fuse of the HVAC Control Module - wait 60 seconds and install the fuse." That might do it, I'm not sure. dlb
I just tried this and at first it only blew hot air from the drivers side...Grrrrrrrrrr! Then I did it 2 more times and might have done the trick. I haven't driven it yet, just let it idle but it is a point in the right direction!

I just tried to add freon to the a/c of my 1999 Olds Intrigue. The compressor was working right before I hooked up the hose. I couldn't get the hose connected so I killed the car to try again. After getting the hose connected, started the car, cut the a/c on full blast, and now the compressor will not come on? Have I ruined my compressor or you think it just might be a fuse?

I will never buy an Oldsmobile again!!!I will never buy american again to be honest, some countries just make better cars. NOW TO THE SHIFT LEVER PROBLEM WITH OLDSMOBILE INTRIGUES.
The button would get stuck, I would push with anger with both hands and sometimes it would work, but it stranded my wife away from home, and that was the last straw. We just parked it and did not drive it, but I got out to it and tried a few things from time to time, and I figured it out tonight.
Either you pay a mechanic your leg for this simple job, or you do it yourself. There are two ways to fix it.
1. pop off the top plastic cover (it goes from the top of the cup holder by the compartmen in the arm rest to the area where I put my change, or cups in front of the shift lever( just two screws at the top by the center compartment). Then unscrew the black shift plate thing that shows what gear it's in, and is attached to the fake leather sleeve on the shift lever. Unclip the traction control button wire so you can completely remove that first plastic cover too. Then you will see a metal square trying to push down when you press the shift lever button. See the gray plastic thing stopping it? snap it off with some pliers!!! Unless you are the type of person that shifts into gear without pressing the brake first, this safety feature is only a problem. If you are trusted with driving a car, you can be trusted to push the break before shifting into gear.
2. THe other way is to replace the strut that moves the plastic piece for you. It is a chrome cylinder on the left side on the base, it moves the arm that moves the plastic thing out of the way of the metal square that is moved by you pressing the shift lever button.
I just broke the plastic thing off!! I am not about to start replacing stuff, I am not going to put anymore money into my piece of crappola GM vehicle.
Did your car work fine after your busted that stuff off?? Cause mine is also a piece of work (aka CRAP) when it comes to shifting and I just want to know every possible out come after I go all samurai on my car shifter with some pliers...

My 99 Olds Intrigue (3.5L, 67,000 miles) A/C is blowing warm air from driver vents and cold air from the passenger vents. I read the past posts on this problem, any updates would be welcome.
I called the dealer and 2 other reputable repair shops, they are not familiar with the problem. By the way last year I replaced the crankshaft sensor.

My 2000 Intrigue has about 100,000 kms. Recently, it accelerates on its own, to over 80kmh with foot off the accelerator and cruise control off. The problem is intermittent. I disconnected then reconnected the positive lead on the battery. It cured the problem but only for a short while.
I would appreciate any ideas you may have.

Electric actuator that controls the vents may be out of service. I had the mechanic manually put the vents on A/C and unplug the device.

I have a 2002 intrigue that stalls when idle and sometimes has problems starting up, where I have to pump the gas pedal a few times to get it to turn over, especially if the car has been running for a while. Is it the injectors, or the mass air flow censor, or the air idle controller, or is it something else?

Wow! My O. I. 1999 air cond. system was also only blowing out cold air on the passenger side. It blew hot air out of the driver side. I just turned it off for a while & now it is working correctly again. I was wondering if there was a recall or something..........I am hoping that it will last. I don't want to dump 1500$ in an old car.

Has anyone had a problem with the blinkers and head lights? I have seen alot of Intrigues with one fog light on during the day. I have replaced the right head light system ($500) and again it is out. This affects the outside front and inside blinkers. Any sugestions? Has there been a recall?

I am also having the air conditioner issue where cold air blows on the passenger side and warm on the driver side. Does anyone have an update on the repair. There sure seem to be an awful lot of complaints about this issue.

Running into an odd problem on my 98 Intrigue.

The A/C, when I first turn it on, makes a sound that's akin to geese honking and wheezing. Seems to be coming from the passenger side of the car. It happens about 3/4 of the time when I start the car, and tends to disappear within a minute or two, then work normally.

Anybody else run into this or have any ideas?

I had to replace mine at about 100,000 miles. It is located in the hose going out of your air filter box to the engine. Loosen the hose clamps, unplug the unit, noting which direction it goes in and remove the whole unit. There isa large core charge for this part so take your old one with you when getting the part. Prices varied greatly from store to store so shop around.

Anyone have a problem with the instrument panel lights coming on 99 Olds Intrigue(AntiLock Brake Light, Service Engine Light and Low Trac Light) seems like after starting the car - you go a short distance and possibly a bump in the road - these amber lights come on.
