My best guess is that you are sharing a ground connection between the stereo and an engine control. Test your wires from the car to the stereo with an electrical tester with the key off, then with the key on, then with the engine running. One of your wires will change it's properties between the 3 tests. That will be your problem wire. Find another wire for the intended use that the problem wire was connected to. (Hint) I'd start with the ground wire to the unit.

If the engine will not crank, it could be the starter, the neutral safety switch, or a bad connection.
A mechanic would check the starter circuit back to the key switch.

2004 olds alero 3400 eng.turn on key and all warning lights and gauges come up,then all goes off after 3 seconds,starter will not work,can start by jumping across starter and runs fine and shifts fine


Check for power at the switch wire when someone turns the key to start. I would say there is a break in the circuit of the thin wire between the starter & the ignition switch

Sounds like bad ground , try re-grounding radio and see if that helps. make sure you have a ground wire from battery negative to car body and ground from body to engine, lot of time head lights are bright when you rev the engine and goes dim at idle. but i'm sure this is a bad ground problem

Something worth trying. The voltage on the battery being fine may not guarantee that it's making it to the other end.

I might try taking the battery clamps off and cleaning them and then make sure that they're put back on very securely.

It requires very little power for lights and radios to work, it takes enormous power to turn over an engine.

I hope this helps you.

Its the crank sensor. There was a recall a few years back for 2001 8.1 liter engines crank sensor. Engine would shut off perodically and sometimes would not restart untill cool. Plus it just happened to mine. about a 350 dollar dealer fix.
