2000 Alero key in off/out, engine off but electric still on.

I have a 2000 Alreo that when I turn the igintion switch to off, the engine shuts off but the battery light and oil light stays on. I can also turn the radio on and off. Just the electric won't turn off. I keep turning the car on and off and eventually the electric will turn off.

    I have this exact issue with my 2002. Just happened 2 days ago, now it's

    -20 and the battery is dead, The battery is only a year old and should have lasted alot longer. I guess I will have it checked.

    I own a 2000 olds Alero and the ignition key just will not come out. I can start the car up and turn it off. but the ket will not go to the off position. I had to disconnect the battery so that the dash lights wouldn't drain it. I have no idea why the key won't come out. There is a traction control buttom and the wires are broken off. I don't think that has anything to do with it but.

Just replaced the stereo in a 2000 alero when finished the key wouldn't come out of ignition, the idiot lights stayed on. when i took the shifter cover off i noticed that one of the slides for the shifter had broke free and turned sideways. i ended up braking it off to get the shifter to go back to park and be able to remove the key. no idiot lights and no drain on the battery. I know i shouldn't have broke the slide now there is a little hole, but it is a 2000 and my daughter drives it. It for me out of sight out of mind. I'm not driving it.

Its simply the electroni system, you would have to replace the battery and get a new alternator along with a new electrical system

If the engine is "locked" (won't crank), the only thing you can do is REBUILD THE ENGINE.
Consider selling the vehicle to a scrap yard.

How to reset anti-theft on a 2000 alero


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

Locating MAF on 2001 alreo


Honda's do not use a mass air flow (MAF) sensor. They use a manifold air pressure (MAP) sensor. The MAP sensor measures vacuum vs the MAF sensor measuring air flow/temperature. No real reason to clean a Honda MAP sensor. Are you having engine performance/idle problems? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Igintion switch


Electrical portion of the ignition swith is faulty. Replace that and all will be well. A good rule to follow since this a weak point on most of hondas older model cars is the lighter the key chain the longer the life of the electrical portion of the ignition switch.
