Adding to the guest's comment, mine did the same thing too, taking the fuse out will reset the computer system.

Although it works, it's only a temporary fix. It's eventually going to get worse. Turns out Azteks are notorious for the Body Control Module going out.

I just went through a nightmare with mine and finally got it replaced.

It should resolve most the problems as it did with mine, but now ours is blowing fuses and the radio has locked itself thinking it's been stolen (and so a new journey begins)

Good luck, friend...I feel your pain!

Your problem is either the Alternator isent charging its 13.5 volts and the battery is flat or wont hold the charge SO do this.
Jump start engine again let it run for 2 minutes then turn on lights,, the head lights should go bright at 13.5 volts. it engine cuts out..and the lights dont go bright,, then the Alternator is not charging,,,, If they go bright and still cuts out the batterys NO GOOD.
Replace battery or get it checked outit must hold 12volts all the time Let me know how you get on.

My 2002 pontiac aztek battery light came on yesterday. Today i went out and NOTHING. jumpstarted it ran for a few minutes then died. Will not start without being jumped. i figured out how to get past the...


Hello! I do not believe this is a security issue...The Battery Light is telling you that the charging system has a fault...One of three possibilities exist...# 1...The battery can no longer hold a charge...
# 2...The Alternator is defective...Or # 3...The cables that interconnect power and ground are corroded and resistive...Do you have a voltmeter and a wee bit of experience using one?...If not send a comment...Set the meter to rear +12 volts...Place the meter probes directly in the center of the battery post...Record the reading...Jump start the vehicle...Quickly remove the jump cables and while the engine is still running, take the same reading again...The second reading must be 1.8 to 2 volts higher than the first...This tests the alternator...If alternator is good...Have the battery tested...Clean cables (on both ends) if necessary...

When the battery, alternator and cables are correct, the battery light will go out...At that point in time the engine should start...If not, then we have other issues and I'll fix them if necessary...

Car ran fine drove it twenty min went to start it again wouldnt start went back an hour later started right up drove it 15 min and it died again changed the plugs and fuel filter still wont start


This sounds more like a crankshaft position sensor. When they start going bad they will work when vehicle relatively cold but fail when hot.

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback and vote Thank You and Good Luck

Check the starter. Sounds like it is not getting any juice. Tap on it with a long metal pole or hammer while someone tries to start it.

2001 Pontiac Aztek STILL will not start.


If the car is clicking, it is most likely the starter engaging, but it doesnt have enough power to crank. Charge the battery or try getting a jump.

Aztek will not start.


First check if battery if it is charge and try again ,or use one that have full charge.
If works you alternater is not charging,
Can also check alternater by pulling ground cable off wile car is running and if stops running change you alternater.
