I looked in the manual for a 2003 cause I didn't have one for the 2002. If you look at the picture below and if that is what you are seeing, it means that your coolant level is low. Check the radiator and cooling system for being low. I hope this helps you and good luck.

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

Ets light stay on can't turn it off.2002 Oldsmobile Alero.


Why would you expect to turn it off ?

We have had the dash malfunction lights
on vehicles since 1981,some 35 years now

That seems long enough to learn about vehicles

If any light is on after the motor is running, you have a
system fault, that has to be found & repaired

How exactly in your mind, would just turning off a dash light,
substitute for an actual required repair?

What would cause my 2002 Alero not to start at all lights come on but wont start after I replaced the heater core


You left something disconnected is my best guess. Look under the dash and see if the ignition switch is connected completely.

Red indicator light comes on periodically in upper left hand corner of dash; does not stay on all the time; rectangular shaped light (not oil).


Yhe indicator that you are seeing is most likely a charging system light (alternator). It could be other things like a brake warning lamp, but I don't know what king of car you are talking about, so I have no way to look it up for you.

In any case, YELLOW or AMBER lights on the dash mean that you should use caution while driving and get the car checked as soon as it is convinient for you. On the other hand, RED warning lamps mean STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE until you have resolved the cause of the light coming on (unless you like being stranded - or worse!).

The turn signals on my 2002 alero work only sometimes


All this runs though the hazzard button in the dash. The light in it gets hot and eventually shorts the system. It is fairly easy to replace if you have small hands. I think the new button is around $20. This happened to my alero and also my moms alero. Solved the problem on both.

Does it look like a radiator with an arrow? Did you check the antifreeze level?
