Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

2 Answers

Electrical issues I have a 2003 Alero with 38,500 miles. Recently when I turn the car on, I have no dashboard lights, no AC, no radio, and no cruise control. It can take up to 10 minutes before they turn on. It has also happened when I have been driving down the highway.

Ignition switches on Aleros are notorious for going bad and causing the exact problem you describe. The next time it happens, try turning the ignition key back and forth slightly. If everything starts working again, then have the ignition switch replaced.

Ali, when you say won't start, do you mean it will not even crank, or does it crank and does not fire? Sounds like a computer or security issue .

Cruise turns off when we roll down the windows


Strange electrical problems can sometimes be attributed to a bad ignition switch. The battery should also be load tested, especially if it is more than 4 - 5 years old.

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

Fuel problem with 03 alero.......Sputtered, died, now wont stop


I am having the same exact issue right now with my 01 Alero. Been having electrical issues with lights coming on and off. ABS was kicking on a few times even. It started sputtering like it was running out of gas, thought that might have been the case. But after I put gas in it it still didn't start. Now it turns over but nothing. What ended up being wrong with yours?

Weather related electrical problems


I had this problem with mine. Do not ever use a automated car wash on your ALERO----it destroys the seal around the window. Then, when you drive in rain, water leaks into the fuse box, shorting it out. I had to replace the fuse box ($500). Hope this helps.
