It is one of 3 things. It is either the battery cables are loose or dirty, the new alternator is not putting out. The alternator gets 12 volts from the ignition to excite the alternator. If you have the 12 volts to the alternator, check voltage at your battery before starting and then start the car and check voltage again. The voltage should go up to 13.8 volts or so. If the voltage is not going up then it is the alternator. If you have the 12 volts to excite the alternator. If you are not getting the 12 volts to excite the alternator then it is either the ignition switch or the Engine Control Module. If you don't have a meter to test voltage, you can take the alternator off and take it to Autozone and they will check it for free.

How do you get key to turn so i can take out ignition to replace on a 2001 alero olds


They key has to be in the run position (some slightly past) to remove the lock cylinder. The button to push down is in a slot at the top of where the cylinder is. Some slots are square, some are a small round hole. ( I've do to many). If the key turns, you can get it out easily. Not turning is a drill an 3/8 inch drill bit. You have to do a relearn/reset when you replace it.

Can you straight up swithc an ignition from one olds alero to another of the same year? im affraid ill set of a security code.


Not sure I follow your question, but you can change the lock as long as you get a key blank that matches the chip in the old key.
The lock cylinder only holds the sensor for the chip in the key.

it has to be programmed for the immobilisor to be turned off so vehicle can start ,i would call a auto locksmith to sort out this problem for you as i have a funny feeling that you have lost the chip out of the original key

Black clamps for rear seat? Where do they go?


There are 2 small kinda u shaped clamps that sit on the floor. Those are used to hold the seat down to the floor of the car. You set the seat down and push it in toward the back of the car as well as down at the same time to lock it into those clamps. If you look up near the edge of the area where the seat goes you should see the holes for those brackets.
