Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

1999 Alero won't start but it has power?

Turn the key and all the gages and everything on the dash power up, the car just won't start. I think it may have something to do with the security system but i do not have the owners manual to check.

I had this problem with my 2000 alero turned out to be the fuel pump relay located in the fuse box under the hood. the air conditioner uses the same type relay swap them out and see if it starts, it doesn't cost anything.

SOURCE: 1999 alero ...security light on the dash won't

The security light normally indicates that there is a failure in the antitheft system. If this is a new occurence, id imagine a failure will soon follow. If that light has been on since you've owned the car, somebody may have bypassed the system in a cheap way that leaves that light on. Here is a link about the system and how it works. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I have a 2000 as well and I noticed a lot of vehicles in 2000 came out with smartcar chips in them as well as the key. I would check into your car and see if maybe you have the wrong key or if maybe if you do have a smart key if it has some loose wiring in the computer system. That's all I can think of sorry.

I got a 1999 chevrolet tahoe. when i put the key in the ignition the head lights,and the dash light comes on but it won't even turn. i change the starter and got a new battery and it still won'


well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

99 ranger won't crank


Is the Theft light on the dash flashing when you attempt to start? This is the first year ford started using the PATS system with the computer chip in the key. If the theft laght flashes when attempting to start, the system thinks in has a bad key and will shut the vehicle down.
