Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
If your security lite is blinking on the dash board with the key on then your security fuel line is locked.
quick fix leave the key in the ignition for 10 minutes IN THE ON POSITION <===very important to leave key in for ten minutes on the on position! security lite should stop blinking and fuel will get into the lines you may need to spray some quick start in the intake
remove the air filter hose and spray in the intake and start her up.
you may have the same problem I ran into and have to turn your key on don't start the car ye wait about ten seconds with key on on position the turn it over should stop the security lite from coming on all the time and locking the fuel lines. let me know if this worked

I had the same problem with my alero about four months back. The problem was my ignition switch had a part broken inside it. Mine kept doing the same thing. If you take it in the cost was around 600 to get it fixed. If don't the ignition switch will eventuly fry your fuel pump or relay box like it did mine and you will have to replace those too. Good luck

On this car, the blinker unit is the same one for the emergency flashers and the directional signals. Are you sure you have no fuel AND no spark to the engine? Very rare, but it could happen, I guess. Your wheel bearings have no effect on the engine. It's also possible that you've slipped a timing belt, just to add to the possible list of things to check.
