Is your oil pressure sensor in working order, the pcm will allow the engine to run for 5 sec then shut the engine down if there is low or no oil pressure readings.

Start with that and post back, thank you for using fixya

Is it possible to switch out the complete ignition from one 2002 alero to another of the same kind. i'm affraid ill set of a security code.


The ignition switches are made to be replaced. You should not have to cut or splice anything, those parts would stay in the vehicle and attach to the ignition switch.

How do you program new spare key for 2007 rodeo RA?


if its the ignition key it must be done by a dealer and have a lage black plastic head which has got a transponder in it. If you got a blank key cut at the locksmith it will turn the locks but wont start the car. Usually you get the dealer to do both supply ignition key and then get it cut, then they can program it.

but if your asking how to program the keyless entry remote follow this procedure.
take note step 5 is different for different year models.


Make sure that all the doors are closed and unlocked and wait for dome light to go out before starting.


Insert the ignition key into the ignition switch


Open drivers door


3 on/lock


Close/open drivers door


Wait 8 secs


On/lock/on (MY06-07) OR 2 on/lock OR on/lock (MY08)


Close drivers door

Press remote & keep pressing one button & then the other slowly(2 secs) until locks start working(they wont operate if key is in ignition).

What wire do I cut to bypass the passlock on my 2004 alero


You Cannot cut any wires to bypass on this system. The passlock security needs to see a valid key in order to have the PCM enable the fuel and Ignition. This system is complex and cannot be bypassed with the cutting of a wire.

1996 Audi A4 1.8 petrol. Turn ignition key and engine starts , runs 2 secs and cuts out need to keep doing this until it finaly starts. Seems to be getting worse.


Car getting started then cuts off after 2 seconds.Its starter related issue.Either the starter is faulty or battery to starter connection is loose or got short in between.It has to be checked and replaced.Get the voltage checked from battery to starter.The battery should show 12 volts if fully charged.

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.
