Question about Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Parking lights stay on when car turned off

2002 Alero: Stereo was turned on, but no sound (stereo digital display was fine, just no sound.) Stopped car and parking lights stayed on. All went back to normal after a few stops and starts, but then battery drained. Replaced battery twice, but they keep draining. One repair shop said left junction box needs to be replaced, but that GM discontinued left junction box. Is there an alternative fix?

SOURCE: Car turns over but won't stay running

It could be a few things there could be a leak in the fuel line causing the engine not to get fuel. It also could be a fuel filter that is very clogged. Try these first.

Wiring schematics are your best friend at this point. Locate the ground circuit for the stereo (first on the schematic, then physically on the vehicle). For a component to receive "partial power" but not function as intended, the ground circuit is the best place to look. A corroded ground or a splice or crack in the ground wire should be the cause of your problem.

If you have an aftermarket stereo, you need to check your wires. You may have an incorrect wire connected. Disconnect the radio harness and turn the lights on and see if the dash lights go out. If they don't the stereo wiring is the problem.

AC display won't dim after stereo installation

If you disconnect the stereo, does the temp. display go back to working properly? Did you connect the stereo Illumination wire correctly? Are all the other stereo wires connected correctly? Double check what the wires in the aftermarket harness are supposed to be and don't just go by color.
