Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
5 indicator lights stay illuminated after engine is started. Cruise control, Traction control functions will not work when lights are illuminated. After resetting computer by disconnecting battery and waiting 10 minutes Most all indicator lights go dark. One service light located in top right of panel stays illuminated. After any where from 10 seconds to 1 minute after motor is running a "ding" is heard and all lights on panel illuminate. Problem has existed for about 2 years. Just recently gave the car to my son and would like to get the problem resolved. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
First check for error codes (DTCs) to see if you can determine the problem.

use a scanner to check the abs system . most of the time the abs brakes and traction control system work together. your cruise control . unit has a servo motor .in front right fender well. check the fuse and relay also the cruise control brake release switch. and the brake light switch.if all is good you have a cruise control module problems. dealer ship job.

does the anti-lock brake light come on too? and ive found the best way to reset codes manually is disconnect the battery terminals pos. and ground. then touch them together( the battery cable terminals) their is a copasitor that will store enough power to hold your codes in the ecm. this way you are essentially grounding the system to drain all residual power stores
