This might sound crazy to you but replace the bulbs in the third brake light in rear window and that will take care of abs and traction light in most cases....the check engine light may be related also but not can take it to your local parts store for a free scan and find out what codes are setting and go from there...replace bulbs first though...good luck!!

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

I have a 03 alero that once in a while the ABS-check engine & traction control lights come on. Then the next time it starts they are not on.

when the abs lights the system will store a fault code.using a scanner with abs capiblity
will retrive the codes.
i would guess a wheel speed sensor is starting to can inspect sensor wires(@ each wh.
for being loose/dirty also check fuid level if not already done

good luck

DSC and ABS Not avail lights come on after driving.

There is a switch underneath that goes out due to the debris underneath. Either take it to the shop or deal with the lights comming on.
