      Turn off the engine and look for your fuse box. See if you can find one circuit for the horn. If you can, pull the fuse. This should silence the horn immediately.

    AC won't stay on. It works but doesn't maintain contact either at the on/off or fan speed knob.
    Jiggling fan speed control can make it come on but typically doesn't stay. Bad contact in the fan speed control?

      Check the Body Control Module, it's supplied voltage to the turn lamps / DRL. Use the Digital Volt meter to monitor the voltage output from the bulb plugs or negotiate with the local auto parts stores managers to obtain a BCM loaner for a test.

      Check the local salvage yards or dealerships in your area. The salvage yards may be the best option, since the Oldsmobile brand and dealer network is history.

      1. Check the heater core coolant hoses ,they both ( inlet and outlet hoses) must be hot in order the heater core to generate the heat.
      a. Lack of coolant, it won't reach the heater core.
      b. The heater core could been clogged if the return coolant hose to the engine is cold.

      2. The blend door actuator is a servo responsible for controlling the mix of warm air from the heater core and cool air from the A/C and outside. If it malfunctions, your climate control system may not respond properly when you change the temperature on the climate control system.

      AutoZone has repair information right on there web site after you enter the year make and model. AutoZone is only one I know that has a huge database of step by step repair information available for free to anyone with all the accompanying pictures with each step. I advise you to buy genuine ACDELCO replacement parts but they may cost more. Don't shop price on these parts, shop price on the ACDELCO brand of parts.

      Use the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD for the steps to remove the inner door panel and to replace the window regulator and motors.
      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the power window motor and regulator assembly from around $35.00 for your vehicle. The AC Delco brand units are around $67.00 each.

      I believe you have a burnt or partially burnt fuse link. There are fuse links located just behind the battery near the cruise control module which is just below the reinforcement brace. Look for a gray colored wire that is kep separate from another gray and a black.

      If you are referring to the plastic clips that hold the window in position - check with the delearship (GM / Chevrolet) to see if the clips are available separately. I would venture a guess and say that they are not.
      You will have to remove the regulator itself to replace the plastic clips - and while you have the window lift / regulator out - you may as well replace the entire unit. It is an easy repair - use the 'How-To-Guides' on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to replace.

      The window regulator is not expensive - it comes with the plastic clips as part of the assembly and is available without the window motor.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the window regulator (driver side without motor) from around $29.00 for your vehicle.

    The digital gauges on my 89' oldsmobile cutless supreme flicker on and off or they read error, WHY?
    This car has 192000 miles, gauges flicker on and off, they read error, or they are out completely. This happens all the time. I have checked the fuse,removed gauges and checked the connection.
