SOURCE: engine light stays on a 97 olds achieva sl

Engine light stays on, low coolant light stays on , recently had a plastic housing replaced that was leaking, it was linked to thermostat, tranmission coolant,heater ect. Had the thermostat replaced also. Level of coolant is fine, does't overheat anymore, but now the starter wants to spin a couple of times and then it starts. The car has no rust, would like to hang on to it

SOURCE: 1996 olds achieva check engine light remains on.

What were the codes??? 
Try this, turn the ignition key to the on position and pull the ECM fuse out for 10 seconds, then place it back in and start the car.
The car may stall and let it, just restart it the second time and things should be fine. It's just the ECM leaning the Engine and Transmission. 
The check engine light should be off and go for a test drive. If there is a problem the check engine light will go back on after you travel over i believe 5 MPH.

SOURCE: check oil light comes on in my 1994 olds achieva

In the oil pan on your car is a sensor that works the ckeck oil light. It is a two wire sensor that just unscrews. It has probably gone out, or hung up. It has a photo cell on it that can go out. If you replace it you might want to wait till your next oil change because you will lose all your oil. Good Luck

SOURCE: check engine light is on in a1997 old achieva,what

Your light is on because the computer detected a problem with your car. Many things can cause this to go off. Being that, you need to take it to Autozone or Advanced to have it scanned. They will do it for free and they will let you know why it is on.

Security light flashing and car won't start now


does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.

Over drive light on shifter blinks and check engine light is lit.


You need to have it scanned for codes. The flashing overdrive light means it has trouble codes that pertain to the transmission.

Check enggine


Do a self test. Turn key to on position and back to off position 3 times. a series of flashes will commence from the "check engine" light. The first set of flashes is the 1st digit of the code, then there will be a pause, then a 2nd set of flashes, This will be the 2nd digit of the code. For example, 3 flashes, pause, 7 flashes, means code 37. Check what the code means in a Haynes auto repair manual. This will tell you what the engine light on your car means.
