Why does it start, then shuts back off?


IF you have recently changed the gauge cluster then the 'security' or 'anti theft' needs to recognize the new cluster. The system will need to be reset.

It's been a few years but if I remember correctly you need to turn the key on, then off 3 times, then turn the key to the on position and leave it there for 10 minutes. Then turn the key off for a few seconds. After that, the vehicle SHOULD start and stay running.

If the gauge cluster hasn't been changed then I really don't have an answer.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

What is causing my Oldsmobile Alero to shut off after starting?


As for the lights being on many GM products do that right after the key is off but if you open the driver's door they should go off. Not sure if that model is part of the ignition switch recall or not. Due to numerous ignition switch problems I would have the ignition switch replaced. The key cylinder IS NOT the switch. The key lock cylinder operates a rod that in turn moved the ignition switch to various positions. Battery must be disconnected and care taken not to deploy the airbag while the switch is replaced. I think I would go with a after market brand such as Delphi rather than another AC Delco factory switch.

The engine shutting off after starting may also be the ignition switch not moving to the RUN position properly. Before doing anything else I'd replace the ignition switch then go from there if the two problems are not cleared up.

try leaving the key on for 10-15 minutes, or however long it takes for the security light to go off. If this works it sounds like you will need to have the exciter ring on the ignition lock cylinder changed.

Car cranks fine, was running great, cold morning wont start, sprayed start fluid motor runs until either gone. fuel filter?


this could be a few things fuel pump getting weak or your alarm could of activated itself and it disables the fuel to the engine, I would try reseting the built in alarm system. first put the key in the ignition and turn on till all the lights come on and let it sit 10 minutes with the key on, then after the 10 minutes is over turn the key to the off position and wait 3 seconds and then try to start. if it starts which is possible because grand ams and olds aleros are bad for the security system locking up by them self. Hope this helps.

Security System on 2002 Oldsmobile Alero


Try turning the ignition key on to the run position but do not start it leave it this way for aprox 10 minutes. The security light should do something after this amount of time. For example if it is flashing it will go off or stay on some cars are different then others. What this is doing is relearning the key resistance. If it does not work the first time try it again.It sometimes takes several tries.
