Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

My son's 1999 Oldsmobile Alero would not start after leaving it for maybe 20 minuts, he had some one boost him but nothing at all, not even a dash light so the next night i went to check it out and when i open the drivers door i could hear a ticking noise coming from under the dash so proceeded to open the hood to hear it and the could not hear it under the hood so after that check the battery post and eveything seemed ok nothing loose so went back in to try and start car when noticed the noise was gone, i turn the ignition and the car started, It's been several days and so far so good. What could have happened?

Having trouble starting my oldsmobile alero. It won't start and the dash lights won't even come on now.


rough guess is that the battery is faulty
have a load test done on it
cold weather kills failing batteries quickly

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.

2002 oldsmobile alero just died driving on the road


Turn the key forward and try to start the car. If it does not start, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY. If you see that light, that is the problem.

If it does not start, leave the key forward 2 clicks for 10 minutes, NO LESS. Roll the key back for 5 seconds and then try to start it.

2003 alero steering won't lock and nothing happens when you turn the key in the ignition


If the security light keeps flashing,you might as well do a reset.
Be sure to turn off all the accesories including the radio before you start the process.
Insert the key to the ignition switch and turn the key to ON position without starting the car.
leave it ON until the flashing light (security) stops.It will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
As soon the flashing stop,turn the key to OFF
position and start the cart.
Hope this help.

MAYBE communicate at gm costumer service and tell the vin number(serial number right on the dash you can see it throught the windshield at the left corner maybe they have a service for that and they will tell you the code to have the new key from the key specialist.
