Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

My 2003 Alero sometimes will start and sometimes will not. I have taken it to a mechanic and everytime they tried to start the car it worked for them. They replaced the spark plug and wiring but did not fix the problem. They said the fuelpump was working. When i turn the car on the on position the security light is on. I waited ten minutes and nothing happened it stayed on. I've had this problem for the last month, every other start just won't work but if i try maybe in a few hours it will start right up.

I am having the same issue with my anti-theft device in my 2003 Alero. Last year it stopped running and would not turn-over. $400 later, Brakemax said they just had to reset the anti-theft device. oK,...

the shop that told you they ripped it out only ripped you off unless they removed some aftermarket alarm system i,m a gm mechanic and if you remove the factory anti-theft on a 2003 olds alero it will not run ever again until re-installed make sure your battery is charged good turn igntion switch to run position but do not try to start security light should be flashing let car sit with switch on and light flashing for ten minutes light should stop flashing now start your car this is how to reset anti-theft was that worth $400.00 and again why let a bussiness named brakemax look at a no start condition keep on and you will be BROKE to the max HOPE THIS HELPS AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM YOUR FRIEND @ HELPMAX

My 2003 ols Alero turns over and wont start. Sometimes it does. Crank trigger has been changed as well as fuel modulator. Back at the shop without a clue.

Is the security light blinking when this happens? (right hand side of the dash?) If so, it may be your passlock fuel shut off is going wacko? In the manual it tells how to reset the system. It involves leaving the key on for ten minutes until the security light stops blinking, shutting the key off, and then starting the vehicle. Check your manual. I had the 'no start' problem. I had it towed to the mechanic (with the key in the on position) and by the time I got there, it started.

2003 Alero passenger window

I would be very suspicious of the drivers master swich. If the window works fine on the other side it's an easy assumption that the window motor and regulator are operative. The switches are usually fairly inexpensive (less then 100.00 ) and easy to install
