My 01 alero wont start when i turn the key over it doesnt even try to start. The security light is not flashing but it does stay on while trying to start it.


If you turn the key and you don't get a crank, it could be your starter or battery. Check all your fuses first. Make sure the battery terminals are cleaned and have a good connection. Check all wiring and make sure there is no damage. Let me know and we will take it from there. I am here to help in any way I can.

Oldsmoble Alero ignition security problem


It doesn't have to be the security. a dead battery won't let the car crank either. With a security problem the car will crank but not start. The security can be reset if the battery is charged and up. Turn the key on ( do'nt crank ) the security light will stay on if it needs to be reset. If it remains on leave the key on for 15 minutes around then it will go out. turn the key off and then turn it right back on, the security light will be on again. Leave the key on till the light goes out again, then turn it off then turn it back on , wait again when it goes out turnthe key off then right back on then crank the engine and it should start. With a scanner the code will be security neweds to be reset. Thia is all anyone can do to reset the security and it's what you were charged $450 for. Following directions.

My 2004 alero will not start


I have this problem all too often myself. Pop the hood, check to make sure the wires have not come undone. If they are on there securely, try and jump the battery if you have that option. Once jumped, it will give the battery more juice and you should be good to go. Please rate FixYa!
