The Alero came with THREE different engine options, two 4 cylinders, and one V6, if your not sure which engine yours came with, open the hood.
There will be an emissions information sticker (white) on the underside of the hood or on the radiator core support (the metal that runs from one side of the front to the other)
It will say "2.2L, 2.4L, or 3.4L"

Once you have this info, ask again, and I will find out for you ?

I had a car I needed to drain the gas and I cut the gas line then purchased a connector for the cut line when I put it back together. Be very careful you don't have a fire.

Starter relay is on the starter motor, and the fuse box should be under the dash, in the drivers feet well.

Oldsmobile 88... | Answered on Feb 17, 2019


You do not. Replace it. Fuel economy and perfomance is affected., Not a hard job.

Oldsmobile Cars... | Answered on Feb 17, 2019


Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. It doesn't have starter relay. Two voltage circuits at starter motor. One comes from the battery, hot the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and is wired through neutral switch. The starter motor grounds through engine block. Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

Shut off the chime ? You want to shut off the chimes or they don't work ??>?? Which chime ?
Audible Warnings Circuit Description
Safety Belt Warning Chime
Voltage is supplied to the body control module (BCM) through the following components when the ignition switch is in the START or RUN position:
• The GAUGES fuse 4
• CKT 39 (PNK)
When you first turn the ignition switch to the START or RUN position, a class 2 signal from the BCM is sent to the instrument cluster logic turning ON the fasten seat belt indicator. The indicator comes on steady for 20 seconds and then flashes for another 55 seconds if the drivers safety belt remains unbuckled, or goes out when the drivers safety is buckled. When the drivers safety belt is buckled, ground is no longer applied to the BCM through CKT 238 (BLK/WHT) from the seat belt switch causing the lamp and chime to go out. The chime will only sound for about the first 5 seconds of the ignition on cycle.
Key-In Warning Chime
Voltage is supplied at all times to the BCM through the following components:
• The Underhood Fuse Block TBC fuse
• CKT 1140 (ORN)
The chime sounds if all of the following conditions exist:
• The key is in the ignition switch.
• The ignition switch is in one of the following positions:
- ACC
- LOCK
- OFF
• The LH front door is open.
When the ignition key is in the ignition switch and the LH front door is open, the ignition key alarm switch closes. The LH door jamb switch also closes. When both of the switches close, the Body Control Module (BCM) senses ground through the following components:
• CKT 126 (TAN)
• The LH Door Jamb Switch
• CKT 1050 (BLK)
• SP203
• C203 cavity F12
• G203
The chime will sound for as long as the door is open and the key is in the ignition switch.
Lamps-On Warning Chime
Voltage is supplied through the ILLUM Fuse 12 to the BCM through CKT 1220 (GRY) when the following conditions exist:
• The headlamp switch is in the PARK or Head position
• The ignition switch is not in the RUN or START position
• The IP dimmer switch is not at the dimmest setting.
With the IP dimmer switch at the dimmest setting, the current to the BCM may be too weak to be sensed by the module. When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN or START position, voltage is supplied from the GAUGES Fuse 4 to the body control module through CKT 39 (PNK). When the ILLUM and GAUGES Fuse voltages are sensed at the same time, the alarm is not sounded. The GAUGES Fuse 4 loses voltage when the ignition switch is in one of the following positions:
• LOCK
• OFF
• ACC
I'am assuming the chime stays on all the time .
