This could be several things. A common issue for this car is a faulty Pass Key system. It can ingage the Immobilizer feature in your Security device and it locks the relay from the ignition to engage the fuel pump and starter. Can you hear a low elecrtic winding hum when you turn it? I would say take it to a dealer or a good machanic and have a diagnostic ran.
If you want to see if its your Security lock out before a garage try relearning the key to the system
Turn key to ON leave on for at least 10 minuites. If security light flashes or stays on steady it should be relearning the radio sequence needed to start. After 10 minuites ( no less) turn key to off for about 30 seconds and turn to ON position again then again off for 30 seconds. Do this 1 more time and from OFF position attempt to start the engine.
If this doesnt work It could be the "smart chip" in your key or maybe the key you are trying is dirty or damaged. Try a different key that you dont use as often and this may work. Dont use valet key when attempting to get out of Lock out.
If neither of these work then it could be a number of things ranging from Needing a new key and ignition. Or it may be your something entirely outside the Pass Key system.
Again get it to a mechanic for a diagnostic if unsure

If it is your Security and you would be interesting in doing away with problem all together. You can Bypass the security relay system with a Bypass on. They are not full proof and cant just as easy have defects and wear out. They are alot easier to replace and run any where from 200-600 dollars from what Ive seen.I did this with my Aurora about 2 years ago and just very recently had an issue with my Bypass failing.

I hope this want over load and really hope it helps!!!

My moms 2002 Oldsmobile Alero is stuck in gear. The car turns over, the break lights come on but the car wont move?

I'll assume this is an auto trans car. When you shift the gear selector does it feel as if it is working normally? Did this happen all of a sudden or gradually get worse?

We put gas in our car and it turns over but won't start.....and it don't sound like the fuel pump s turnin on and smels lke no gas is going to the it possibe that the fuel pump is out and...

It is possible that is plugged. The fuel pump is in the gas tank. when you turn the key on you should hear the fuel pump turn on. I would check fuses first, if they are good while you are cranking the car over have someone else bang hard on bottom of the gas tank with their hand. If the fuel pump is stuck it might start working again. Good luck

2009 saturn hybrid dome ligh stays on

Forgive me if I seem to be over simplifying, but have you have you tried rotating the knob to left of the steering wheel (below the a/c vent)? If you rotate it all the way clockwise, it 'clicks' and the dome lamp comes on. Rotate counterclockwise and the dome lamp goes off and you adjust the brightness of the interior lights.

Our oldsmobile alero wont start seems like not getting fuel

If the security light is flashing when the key is on then it is the passport 2 anti-theft system. You need to turn the key to the on position (one away from cranking it over) and leave it until the light goes out. Then turn the key off, remove it, then try to restart it.
