Daytime running lights illegal to run inthe daytime....in CA? Can't speak about their legality in CA but I find that odd if true.
As kplacer stated, the turn signals double as the daytime running lights on the Olds Intrigue. If these are the lights the OP was talkng about, his vehicle is operating normally.

Pretty sure it was illegal, at least in the 90's. Anyway, I can't think of another car that has running lights always on.

Oh, please. GM has had daytime running lights for years. GM thought they were a better safety feature than antilock brakes because they were proactive and helped even those not doing anything wrong.

Well I called the dealership here and they tell me always-on DRLs have been standard on GM vehicles since the late 90's. I just gotta look harder, I guess.
Also there is a law against driving with parking lights in CA and I got confused between parking lights, fog lamps and DRLs.

Just bought 2000 Intrigue. Had to get a new radiator. Still no heat. Getting 14 miles per gallon? Seems to run good and it seems fairly complicated to get to the spark plugs. Advice? Car seems possessed? Turn signals work some of the time wipers are just as moody. New to this how do I find out if there is an answer to my questions?

Sounds like a thermostat issue, you should get heat and about 20mpg town and 26 hwy or more. The plugs last over 100k, coils sit on top, so you may not need to change them if they were changed, hard to tell. I have a 00 myself and 140 and have not changed but about to.

Intermediate steering shaft. It's a known issue, not really a problem at all, really just an annoyance, if you look back in the forum a long way (I suggest searching ) you'll see all sorts of discussions about it and directions how to fix it, all you really have to do is crawl under your dash, pull a boot back and spray in some white lithium grease (that's all the gm tech's will do to) and it goes away. Tried it my self.
It's annoyingly ackward to hold back the boot and get the grease in there in the cramped space but it's really quite simple.

Powersteering cooling loop on low pressure return line. very difficult to replace as installed, in my opinion, I think they installed before engine was added. You can replace sections with hose however. good luck if still bothering you

How many miles on the car???? Had 3 Intrigues 1998,1999, and 2002; fun cars, all bought new, however not totally trouble free..The 98 was repurchased by GM at about 26k miles, mainly brake and steering issues. The 99er had some of the same issues but the 3.5 engine was a delight and only required a "crank sensor" over 75k miles..traded it on a 2002 which accumulated 120k miles by 6/30/07..
The 2002 3.5 engine received new spark plugs at 111k, an oil change every 3k, and engine coolant nor trans fluid were never changed..80% of the mileage was done on I-75 in central Florida at speeds of 75-85, no a/c issues, required a new Rh frt Hub Assy 98k, new battery 96k, new ISS 46k..,major alignment 65k requiring reslotting of all 4 struts..All work was done by local Chevy dealer, due to the fact the Caddy/Olds dealer was worthless..
Since the Olds 3.5 engine was used only in the Intrigue and Aurora, any of these cars with high mileage is a risk factor, and could be an expensive venture..The Intrigues were fun cars and had the best suspension of any W-body..
