Supposedly the last time it was fixed they had to drop the entire gas tank out to get to this module.

Well the fuel pump is in the gas tank, so that is probably what they replaced before.
Someone would need to find out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.

SOURCE: gas gauge not working property

Pontiac has a problem with the sender for the fuel guage. A quart of transmission fluid in a full tank of gas usually fixes it. The "engine" light, won't be on because of that. Quite often that is the air filter or fuel cap.

SOURCE: 4 Door. Drivers side rear window has dropped down

window regulator has failed. Look for an after market one the GM replacement is junk. Usually it is a clip that holds the cable to run window up and down. probably a safety clip used if someone gets cought in the window, GM will charge you over $400 for the fix. not hard I have it down to about 30 min. and around $100 for the regulator.

SOURCE: My car sometimes won't let

This is probably the ignition lock cylinder worn out or getting old. The TDM is most likely not locking the key in, but new cars are pretty tied into themselves. For now, just try leaving the key in. Use another one for the doors. Some cars have a small hole under the steering wheel/column that you can stick a pen or something in to release your key. Maybe just be ready for something else breaks, then you'll know what is wrong.

SOURCE: Just had plugs,wires and bottom gasket leak fixed.

That would make sense, because when he jumped your car if he left it hooked up for awhile. Then he charged your battery up, so it started the next day. Then you drove to his shop and back it ran the battery down. It's easy enough to test and change alternators you could take it to autozone or O'Reillys if there is one close they can test your alternator. If you have more questions about this or if you would like to try and change it yourself just reply to this post and I will walk you through it.

You need to go to the dealer. They will put in a rebuilt one and program it to your car . You can\'t do this yourself. I you get a junkyard one they won\'t warranty it and if it is bad you will have to reprogram it again. If anything isn\'t right after they put it in tell them right away they told me they needed diagnostic time to find problem I said your full of it I didn\'t have this problem until you replaced it . They put another one in and it has worked for 4 years

As long as you are willing to FINNANCE such
folly... it would be wise to stick with ANONYMOUS.

I am a bit OLD FASHION (out of style + opinionated)

I think a $600 dollar outlay of CASH ought to entitle
to a material change in the MALFUNCTIONING
of you vehicle...

You are not OBLIGED to be foolish... but you
SHOULD ATTEMPT to reconcile where you are
and where you should be.. with your
(so called) "MECHANIC"... Give THEM a chance
to make GOOD on their repair... Then advance your
issue to THEIR LICENSING commission, admin,
bureaucrats that suck UP bug money ... to assure
does not (right... should not).

My best advice would be to RECOVER the take-off
parts from this $600 REPAIR FIASCO...
have a competent MECHANIC do a read-out
of your ON-BOARD Diagnostic systems...

And repair your car accordingly...
Then move to recover you wasted money & dignity
if you have any energy left...

There's always the FREE READS... and come here for some ideas...

The least & last of which should be to replace

The 2003 Concorde my mom has won't start right away sometimes after it's turned off not because of anything mechanical but something with the security i was told. Any thoughts on how to turn t

Typically dealers are the only people who can work with the security systems on cars. If it is a factory security system, calling a dealer would be your best option. If it is aftermarket, call the company that installed it. If you have a mechanic you trust, you are free to ask them for advice, but typically mechanics will refer you to a dealer for security system issues.

you could be getting air in the fuel system lines, sometimes caused by heat , but most the time its caused by a tiny leak in the fuel system itself, on the end of the rail that leads to the fuel injectors there is a bolt head, loosen it as someone else turns the key to the on position, if the pump is working correctly you should have fuel blasting out of that loosened bolt, if not, you have a pump problem, if it does, then you have an other problem, if the car turns over but won't start , you need to check for spark on the plugs, ( thats the easiest way ) you can see how to do that in this video along with some other things to check , watch the part about spark plugs

My 03 Alero does not start consistently. I definitely believe that there is something temperature related going on. When I leave the car parked in the sun for a while, it is much less likely to start. ...

You're not gonna believe this. Your problem sounds like the fuel pump. Put a pressure gauge on the regulator under the hood. You should read about 30 .p.s.i. I don't think the sun has much to do with it. I had the same issue before.
