How do I program a new remote for my 2001 oldsmobile alero gls

Sorry but it has to be done at the dealership or a shop that has the correct scan tool. If you were wondering, the correct scan tools that will do this are in the 1200-1500 dollar range.

It has brand new battery and a new starter I wonder y the blower comes on when my ignition is turned in on position could that b the problem and I can get under the car and start the car off the starter...

Most likely cause is the a relay or fuse that powers the relay. Depending on the car there have been a lot of issues with the ignition switch, PS the ignition switch is typically not the switch where the key goes in. Lastly it could be a neutral safety or clutch safety switch, assuming you have the starter wired correctly.

Check your fuse and replace any that are burnt out. It is possible that it your heater on your O2 sensor shorted that it blew the fuse.

It is the O2 Sensor. Are you sure you replaced the correct one or have you replaced all of them. My vehicle has four. Based on what I have found it appears your car has four also. Have you replace those or just the one you can see. You will have one each at the Catalytic converters, whioch are called the down stream sensors. You will also have two upstream sensors on the exhaust pipes near the exhaust manifolds.
