My daughter has the same problem and has been in contact with GM. The problem is the system, not the battery or fuel pump etc. GM has no direct fix or parts to repair. The battery disconnect/reconnect works best, its what a dealer will do and they reset the computer even though they find no error. Alero is also is prone to bad motor mounts effecting grounding which can cause the same problem. GM replacement mounts are the same as the problem mounts. Battery reset works here too. Since Olds is gone they won't invest, especially now. carry the battery wrench, drive it till you can't stand it any more and then trade in. Look at the net, its full of the same problem in multiple years of that Alero version. Shame its a nice car.
