The security is not reading the key.you will have to reset it by putting in the key cracking and the leave it alone without moving the key for about 10 to 15 min and see if the light going away

SOURCE: passlock

While I've never had this issue, the fix is pretty easy:

  1. Turn car to ON position (without starting it)
  2. Leave in that position for 15-20 minutes
  3. Turn off.
  4. Start car.
This issue is with the PASSLOCK system in the car.

SOURCE: 2000 Alero Security light flashing and wont start

With the new lock cylinder in it, turn the key on. The security light should blink. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, the security light will quit blinking and go out after 10 min. This will reprogram your security system and the car should start. Also leave a battery charger on it while the key is on, If the battery goes dead during the 10 minute reprogram sequence, you will have to start over again.

SOURCE: car want start factor security light flashing and

The factory security light will remain on - this is a standard feature indicating the car is dead.
First, unplug the hazard fuze in the engine bay (this will reset the ecu and remove the flashing)

Next, replace the battery with a new one (or one with proper charge) - keep in mind a small battery will not do anything for these cars, the engines require a lot to push them over (it isnt a honda)
*Make sure to clean the positive and negative battery cables from acid

Then just start it up :)

SOURCE: 1999 olds alero stall whe you take your foot off

hard start is AM is most commonly caused by a defective fuel pump pressure check valve, the other stall is issue is covered by the following procedure.
Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: Security light flashing and car won't start now

does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.

Need help location of fuse relay on my 1999 olds alero for power windows


All the windows work off one circuit breaker, there isn't a relay for them. So if one works, they all have power. Replace the window regulator and motor inside the door.

SOUND LIKE THE THEFT SECURITY PROBLEMS. MOST OF THE TIME.THE IGNITION KEYS OR IGNITION SWITCH KEY LOCK CYLINDER WORN WHERE THE BCM AND PCM DONT RECOGNIZE KEY OR SWITCH SIGNAL.SO THE BCM AND PCM WILL GO IN THEFT SECURITY MODE.THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE TO FIX.BECAUSE IF THE KEYS , IGNITION SWITCH AND LOCK CYLINDER AND BCM HAS TO REPLACED.THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPROGRAM USING DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT. NOT A HOME FIX.YOU WILL NEED TO GET FIX SOON AS POSSIBLE.BECAUSE FAULTY SECURITY THEFT CODE WILL SHUT DOWN VECHICLE FUEL SYSTEM WHILE DRIVING OR IT WILL GET TO A POINT WHERE CAR WONT START NO MORE.THIS FIX WILL COST ABOUT $600.00.

im just gonna take a stab in the dark here i understand that your security light is on try unlocking your door with your key sometimes you just need to reset the security. otherwise ive seen a security module go bad that may be preventing you from starting it.

Car wont start has power has fuel and starter


The security system is activated. It kills the injector pulse ( signal) and on some modles the starter. You will need to try to relearn the system. First try to start the car, leave the key in the run position for 10 minutes. Cycle the key off, then cycle it to the run position again for 10 more minutes. Cycle it off again, then back to run for another 10 min. after the last cycle turn it off then try to start the car. It is a 30 minute relearn. If this does not work you will need a repair shop to replace the passlock sensor. Good Luck

2004 olds alero


Unfortunately this happens with Aleros. I have a 2004 olds alero and this happens to me quite frequently. Its a defect with the passlock security system. When it doesn't start, it thinks someone is trying to steal your car and doesn't allow the car to start. I have paid over $500 to repair this problem with no avail. I have paid to replace the entire system, but continue to have the problem. All you have to do each time this occurs is to leave the key in the "ON" position with the engine off (obviously as it wont start) for 10 MINUTES. The security light will flash during this time. When the security light stops flashing and remains constant, take out the key and start the car. This will work. Unfortunately you have to do this EVERY time, which is a pain the rear. I live in the desert and when this happens to me in 120 degree weather, its not fun!

Sorry. I'm never buying and Olds again!
