Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero

Light is on, but what does it mean?

I have a problem with my 2000 Alero, a light on the left hand side of my dash is on and I don't know what it means. The light is shaped like a square with a down arrow in the middle of it. What does that light mean?

Red indicator light comes on periodically in upper left hand corner of dash; does not stay on all the time; rectangular shaped light (not oil).


Yhe indicator that you are seeing is most likely a charging system light (alternator). It could be other things like a brake warning lamp, but I don't know what king of car you are talking about, so I have no way to look it up for you.

In any case, YELLOW or AMBER lights on the dash mean that you should use caution while driving and get the car checked as soon as it is convinient for you. On the other hand, RED warning lamps mean STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE until you have resolved the cause of the light coming on (unless you like being stranded - or worse!).

I have a 2000 olds alero, how do i reset the change moil light


If you mean the change oil soon light............ Open the fuse panel; on the side of the dash by drivers door. turn on key but not far enough to start car.
Press the red reset button in the fuse panel until the oil light flashes , release the button and then press it again.
It has been a while since I have done this on an alero , so if you have your owners manual , it might be a good idea to read the instructions in there incase i have it wrong. By the way , the low tire pressure light works the same way.

I own a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero and the ''Trac Off'' dash light came on. I don't have a owners manual so I don't know waht it means, can you help?


There is a button (on the shifter console in my alero) that turns oof and on the "trac". I'm not sure of it's purpose but if I push that button, the "Trac Off" light comes on.

2000 Olds Alero. Cooling/Heating fan stopped


The blower is on the right hand side under the dash. You are right in thinking the blower resistor is the problem. The resistor is in the heater box behind the blower. Only 2 bolts hold it in but the back one can be a challenge to remove. The bolt is 5.5 mm.

Check for power and ground with a test light at the resistor connector. You should have power on the colored wires in the various switch positions. The black one is ground.
