Several things could do this, but as Richard said. the ignition switch is getting a short in it. Bad contacts. Start here.

Upon start up vehicle has no guages,ac or blower no radio no auto headlamps no power windows no wipers..then all come on at once...why


What is year--make--model? Check the applicable fuse for accessory circuit, just pick an accessory that doesn't work. Not only check the fuse, check for voltage on the fuse circuit. If voltage for the fuse circuit is ignition feed and no voltage, have to check feed to and from ignition switch. Because I don't know which vehicle you have, I can't track anything.

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

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

2003 Olds Alero - this is silly!


On mt 2003 olds radio, there are 2 "spots" on the upper right hand of radio facing. Undo a paper clip, fits nicely, and hold until you hear a beep, use this to change time after beep.
