I OWN a 2001 Olds Alero and the same thing happens to mine.. It's an easy fix.. 1. Turn the Key to ACC (keep it in this mode for the entire 10 minutes). 2. The security light on the Dashboard will flash for exactly 10 minutes.. 3. Once the 10 mins are over, the security light will stay solid.. Wait for the red light to disappear off the dashboard... YOU ARE NOW READY TO TURN YOUR CAR OFF AND RESTART YOU CAR....
to reset the pas-loc turn the to on position 10 to 15 min.then turn the key off for a few seconds,then start the car/if your security light is on do this like i said for 10 to 15 minutes.the light should go off,then turn the key off and wait a moment then start it,you dont have to wait the 1/2 hour out
if car shuts off while driving it could be a bad crank sensor. a bad crank sensor will shut car off while driving, then it will not start for about 10 minutes, when it starts it runs fine until it goofs up again. the popping could be the sensor for it controls timing along with the cam sensor.
i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick
Ignition switches on Aleros are notorious for going bad and causing the exact problem you describe. The next time it happens, try turning the ignition key back and forth slightly. If everything starts working again, then have the ignition switch replaced.
