SOURCE: 2001 Olds Alero Wouldn't Start

I had a problem similar recently, just wouldn't stay on. Found out that there is a flaw with the sensors on those cars for the ignition "talking" to the computer's Passlock II thing. The car thinks it's getting stolen so it engages the anti-theft which turns off the fuel injection. You just have to reset the Passlock. Turn the key to the first On position where you have radio but no windows, leave it for 10 minutes until the little Security light turns off. Turn off the key then start it.
Don't know if it was your problem, but just so you know, the sensor part will eventually start failing with this car.

If the previous solution doesn't work, try this:

While the key is in "on" position and your security light is blinking, it is probably your "Passlock" security device acting up. Very common in these years for GM cars. To test if this is it, simply turn your key forward (to "on" position) until light stops blinking and eventually turns off (right around 10 minutes). Then, turn key back off, and then try to restart it. My Alero did this just a few months ago and I learned this trick as I was pricing out a new fuel pump. If this was your problem, I recommend taking it to a remote starter installer and have them by-pass the passlock system permanently. This should cost anywhere from $40-$100, but is much better than a new fuel pump and filter cost.
-note: I recommend not getting it by-passed until it happens a second time (which it may not), just don't forget the temporary fix!

SOURCE: olds intrigue warning lights on...

It is a sign that you either have a bad wheel bearing or 1 off your speed censors on 1 of the tires is bad, I just had this problem with my olds alero, but it was a wheel bearing that needed replaced.

I had the exact same problem last year with my 2001 Alero 3.4L V6. It turned out to be that most of the copper strands in the multi-strand ground wire were broken, in the wiring harness passing over the transmission on the way to the fuel pump behind the fuel tank. The same ground wire is shared with several of the warning gages on the dash, causing several to remain lighted all the time. Both of the check engine lights, the brake light, the low oil light, and ABS light would all remain on all the time. Once the frayed portion of the ground wire above the transmission was repaired, the lights stayed out and the car started running normal, with the fuel now actually pumping gas under continuous high pressure to the engine.

2001 olds alero won't start

Does it crank over? Do you have dash lights? Is there fuel in the tank? Have you checked to see if you have fuel pressure? Is the check engine light on? SOOOO many possibilities could be causing it to not start

Abs light stays on 2001 alero

My GMC Dealer said that the problem is caused by a short in the ignition/electrical system. (seems to be a problem for many). He also said that the ABS will NOT actually work while the light is on! All my dash warning lights, radio/clock, and sometimes even ignition(turning key) have problems. The car is drivable but not working correctly. Short term solution: turn key ON, wait 10-15 min, turn off for a few minutes to 'reset' and then try to turn car on. Worked for me yesterday. Good Luck!

Dash warning light sensors


incomplete exhaust burn sensor, On my 97 Grand Prix I had to get plugs, plug wires and finally complete injector service to get the light out for any period of time.
