Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero
I have replaced my fuelpump three times and its still doing the samething. the fuelpump doesnt come on all the time. sometimes it takes me 30 mins. to start my car. sometimes when im driving down the road it will shut off but i will still have all my power in the car then i will have to wait for the fuelpump to kick on. it never has the check engine light. i have had it to the car shop to fix it and they say theres nothing wrong with it. now its sitting in another town on the side of the road cause it wont start.
I was reading another comment about Aleros and thought you might try this. You have an antitheft system that kills the fuel pump. The directions are in your owners manual. What I remember is to turn on the ignition and leave it on for 10 minutes. Now whether you turn the car to start at this point or go back to "off" and then start is the second way. I would try turning the key to start without shutting it off (from the 10 minute cycle). This is suppose to reset the antitheft and you should observe whether the antitheft light is blinking.
If this works for you then you have problems in the antitheft circuit. This would include keys, keyswitch reader, connecting wires and antitheft box. Best of Luck
