Why would a 1997 Monte Carlo dome light flash on and off for a minute or so then stops every time the dome light is turned on?

GM Dome lights are switched on the negative wire. The power to the dome light is constant so if it can find a ground either through a stripped wire or faulty switch it will come on. Once you turn the dome light on it has a constant ground, therefore stops flashing. Most common culprits of this are the door switches witch create a ground when the doors are opened. They are located in the door jamb.

Check the Dome light resistor , it should look like a flasher i think , this works as a thermal delay switch . Not sure of its location though . Also , Try to replace the bulb

There is only one drain plug and it's on the bottom of the oil pan, just like in every other car around the world.
