Check your battery voltage and make sure it is 12 volts and when running it should read 13,5 volts or higher. The bad idle could be that you need a tune up or you have a bad tank of gas . It wouldn't hurt to put in some fuel injection cleaner. If , when starting, the car makes a clicking sound the battery is low and if it makes a spinning sound it is usually a broken tooth on the starter or flywheel.

    Ive already changed all hoses and Sensors plus the heater core and cold air intake plus spark plugs and a battery. I have a feeling it has something to do with the fuel injectors or bad wiring , reason why is if i give it gas and try to start it sounds as if its turning slowly and at the end catches. My day lights always stay on to Intell i turn the car off and when i lock it and walk away it chirps and flashes the lights. So all in all like i said faulty wiring, starter or bad fuel injectors

SOURCE: Security light in 99 Oldsmobile Alero

There isnt a fuse for the theft system. You need to take the coloum cover off. Should be 3 screws and you will see all the wires in there. The ones you need are three togather. White Black and Yellow. Get the car started and cut the yellow wire. The theft light will come on and stay on but will bypass the theft system. If it is a 2 wire system you will see two little metal strips on the upper side of the key. You have to use a ohm meter and measure the resistance of the strip in there. Its a resistor used to tell the theft computer the key is in there. Anyway find out what the resistance is and buy a resistor from radio shack and look under the steering wheel for the 2 very small guage wires in a yellow cover....NOTE not the air bag wires. Simply cut those wires ( the 2 white ones) and on the set going away from the steering wheel strip the wires and put the resistor one one wire and the other end of it to the other wire....That will disable that system. If its the 2 wire and you have issues getting it simply take the car to a car audio place that does remote starts and for a nominal fee they will do it for you. My records show that it has the 3 wire system.

SOURCE: car takes a while to start

A tune up might be in order. By tune up I mean spark plugs, Distrubtor cap and rotor button and plug wires. I would also check the timing and replace the fuel filter.

that's probably just bad spares. try going to a different store to have them cut (hardware stores are a good place to go) or you could go to a gm dealer too.

SOURCE: engine falls below 500rpm lights dim and engine stalls out

I had a bad air conditioner compressor that caused this same problem. It had almost completley seized and gave the car some real trouble starting. The burning smell I had was caused from the belt rubbing around the seized pully.
