Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

I have the traction light problem as well for my 99' alero, and I was wondering how much would you say it cost to get something like that fix, a computer and all. My car has been in the shop for over the week, and they just figure out the problem, but I need to know how much the computer part would be, minus the labor. what is your opinion?

Just bought a 1999 Olds Alero and it has no instruction manual for the clock, as well as wondering what it means when I click the button and a little light shows "Trac Off" really could use some...


That button you're pushing is the traction control button. You're turning traction control on & off. You use on slippery and wet roads. You might check Ebay for an owners manual.

I have a 99 alero. The computer by passenger floor was changed. The computer that replaced it has the same part number as the old one. I turned the key on for 10 minutes and waited to reset the security...


MOST THE LATE MODEL CARS OBD 2 PCM CONTROL FROM 1996 - 2011 WHEN EVER YOU REPLACE THE PCM BEST FOR DEALERSHIP TO FIX BECAUSE THE PCM - CRANKSHAFT SENSOR - ANTI THEFT SYSTEM HAS TO BE REPROGRAMMED.

When I start my 2001 alero the anti-lock, traction light, service engine soon, service vehicle soon lights all stay on all the time. But my car seems to be running fine. Why is this?


the anti-lock and traction lights will come on together if there is a common problem with the two, since they are closely related. may be a wheel speed sensor or something similar. the service engine soon light indicates a problem with the engine computer, can be anything from an emission system problem or an engine performance problem. all of these lights can come on with no apparent running problems on the car. the service vehicle soon light is basically a maintenance reminder, an oil change light. take the car into a shop and have the codes read for these lights.

Traction contol, Transmission, Tire pressers sensor


I'm fighting problem #1 right now myself... I'll let you know if I find an answer.

Anytime you get the Low Tire Pressure light you have to reset it. There is a panel on the driver's side of the dash, facing the door. So you have to have your door open to get to it.You are looking for the red button.


From the 1999 Alero manual:

"To reset(calibrate) the system, turn the ignition switch to ON. The RESET button is located inside the drivers side fuse panel. Press and release the RESET button.

The CHANGE OIL light will begin to flash. Press and release the RESET button again. The CHANGE OIL light will go off, and the LOW TIRE PRESSURE light will start flashing. When the LOW TIRE PRESSURE light is flashing, press and hold the RESET button until the chime sounds."

Lights on for service engine soon anti lock and trac off


Id have to know what code has triggered the Service Engine Soon light in order to diagnose that. It could be related to the anti-lock and traction control system being off or it could be something separate.

That said, it is common for the anti-lock and traction control to be turned off if one or more of the wheel speed sensors goes bad. In some cases the wheel speed sensors are separate from the wheel bearings but in your case I believe they are integrated with the wheel bearing, so in order to replace the sensor you have to replace the wheel bearing.

In order to know which wheel bearing is the culprit, you'd have to have the car hooked up to a scan tool capable of reading ABS codes.

Anti-Lock and Trac Off lights are lit on my 1999 Alero, as well. They usually come on after about 5 minutes of driving, but are not always on when I start the car.
