Pass lock I have 2001 alero my key wouldn' t turn so i called pop-a- lock they came out and got the car started and i drove it for about a day. Then it stopped, there was no power to the dash, but then I tried the 10 minute trick I saw about the pass-lock system and the car started long enough for me to move it from the side of the road into my driveway. I tried the 10 minute trick again later and it started for about 60 seconds and died out and all the gauges on the dash wnet off and in the radio window th word calibrate keeps flasing. please help!!!

My security locked me out but the 10 minute waiting does work, you do have to have the doors closed when resetting.

My 2002 Alero will not turn over


Make sure the valet parking lock in the glove box is not locked. You'll need the master or driver #1 key. If VP is not locked and this happens use the master key and manually lock and then unlock the driver door then try starting the car. And also you have a working remote key unit when this this happens, step back out of the car. if you have passengers have them exit too. Hit the lock bottom wait a couple of seconds hit the unlock button just once. Only you the driver get into the car place key in ignition turn it over Note: if it dings your good if nothing you'll need to keep locking and unlocking until the security light dings.

First check for spark and good fuel pressure if these are good then the ignition switch is the culprit.

no there is no lock position for the alero. if the key wont turn the key and or ignition cylinder may be worn out. try jiggling the key as you try to turn it. you may need to replace the ignition switch to repair this. when you do it will need to be programed to the vehicle. hope this helps

It could be a problem with the passlock system. Does the security light flash when you try to start it?

I drove the car alot that day and then I went to start the car and it wouldn't start. After it had sat for a couple hours. It cranks but will not start.


I have the same problem with mine,I found out lately that this car is designed for anti theft lock so always lock your door when you park even if you're just refueling. try switch it ON wait for 10 minutes until the security lock stops blinking, turn it off then start.

Drove 01 alero 10 miles. turned it off for 10 min and wont restart.turns over and is getting spark.


I have the same problem with my piece of junk alero! I hate this car but if you turn your key to the on position and let it sit like that for about 15 minutes turn it off then try starting it i bet it starts, its a problem with the security system, it may do this from time to time, just do like i said turn the car all the way to the on position not just the accessory position but all the way on wait 15 min. for the security system to reset itsself and it should start. it cost me 170.00 to find this out, good luck
