Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
The first experience with this problem was that I stopped at a red light and the car completely shut down. Lights and all. It would not restart for a minute or two and then started right up. Later, after parking it and going into a store, the car wouldn't start at all. No lights would come on or anything. After a few minutes, it would start up and run fine. Today the car started fine first thing this morning, but after shutting it down for a few minutes while I was in the store, it wouldn't crank up and it also shut down at several red lights....I'm thinking i should get my altenator checked first but i'm not sure why that would cause the car to not start when it's cold starting. Maybe it's draining the battery and the battery recharged after a few minutes. Your help is much appreciated.
