1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Ignition Replacement


The ignition in a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme is a small module located by the camshaft cover. The ignition sends electricity to the starter and solenoid when you turn the ignition key inside the car. When the ignition module stops working, you no longer have the ability to start your car. When this happens, you will need to replace the ignition module with a new one.

Tools Used: Tools, Socket set, Screwdriver, Torque wrench

Replace Ignition

Pull the hood release located under the driver’s side dash. This releases the lock on the engine hood. Open the engine hood and secure it onto the hood prop.

Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery terminal with a socket and ratchet. The battery is in the front corner of the engine bay on the passenger side and the negative battery cable is black.

Disconnect the 11-pin IDI ignition harness connector from the ignition module. To do this, push in on the locks located on each side of the connector and pull the pin out with your fingers. The module is on the passenger side of the engine and bolts to the camshaft housing. The housing is just below center of the engine. The cover and the module are black.

Remove the camshaft housing bolts that secure the ignition system assembly to the camshaft housing with a socket and ratchet. With the housing bolts removed, lift the ignition system assembly out of the engine with your hand. Remove the screws that hold the ignition assembly housing and the housing cover together with a screwdriver.
