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.

Security light is flashing. car will not start on my 2003 oldsmobile alero


I OWN a 2001 Olds Alero and the same thing happens to mine.. It's an easy fix..
1. Turn the Key to ACC (keep it in this mode for the entire 10 minutes).
2. The security light on the Dashboard will flash for exactly 10 minutes..
3. Once the 10 mins are over, the security light will stay solid..
Wait for the red light to disappear off the dashboard...
YOU ARE NOW READY TO TURN YOUR CAR OFF AND RESTART YOU CAR....

SIMPLE FIX..
I DO THIS ALL THE TIME TO MINE..

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.
