Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Alero Interior Lights Will Not Turn Off


Background:
My battery completely died, nothing would work, key fob, lights, nothing.

The battery was replaced, the car would turn over, but not start up, and nothing still worked.

I had the car towed, and the mechanics said they had to reset the system.

Situation:
Now, everything works as normal,
except that the dome light and lights below rearview mirror do not turn off until the 20 minute timer switches them off.

Also, those lights come on when I slow to about zero and will stay on only if I accelerate out of zero.

Much thanks

    needs to be taken back to where it was reset. Not that I have herd of a oldsmobile having to be reset. Sounds like something is shorter in the body control module or pcm....Take it back and see what they say

My key fob won't open or start my car, it hasn't been driven for a while


Hi Julie, have the battery in your key fob replaced and if that is not the problem then have the car battery checked , charged or get someone to jump start your vehicle, don't worry this is not a major problem,
you just need some MALE help. Good luck!

Having trouble starting my oldsmobile alero. It won't start and the dash lights won't even come on now.


rough guess is that the battery is faulty
have a load test done on it
cold weather kills failing batteries quickly

Why won't my key turn the ignition for my 2000 Dodge Stratus. The steering wheel is not locked but neither key will turn in the ignition.


Probably aftermarket alarm. Should be a small switch close to it to turn it off. If it were mine, I would remove the system .

My van won't start all lights indoor complete died nothing work due i left it for a month and tried to boost charger won't do anything.


either the overhead light kill switch may have been pressed by accident, or since your battery died for an extended time, you may have to reprogram how you want the lights to work. Should be in your owners manual how to program interior lights section.

Battery in key died. Put new ones in, alarm is not responding and can't roll down windows, start car or turn on interior lights/ 2000 passat


Hello! On the 2007 Passat you must pry the cover off of the manual key slot... Observe from the bottom there is a slot... Place the key in the slot, at the same time pry from the bottom and the whole cap will come off revealing the keyhole... With a good fob put power to the car but do not start the engine... With a manual key, lock the door...Now press the fob you are trying to train twice... It should take the code...Unlock the door, remove the good fob and test the new fob...

check to make sure yu have 12v at the battery, once you do turn the ignition to start, if nothing, check the fuse and relays that control ignition, if all is good then the click sound is coming from the starter, have the solenoid replace.

You probably caused a short circuit when you changed the light. Change fuse #14. Next time, don't turn the lights on until you are finished changing the lights.
