Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero
Is the key a FOB style ? Or have a security chip in it ? Did this happen after you replaced the battery. Some cars need to have a lot of electrical components reset if power is interrupted ( battery removal ) .

The security system is activated. It kills the injector pulse ( signal) and on some modles the starter. You will need to try to relearn the system. First try to start the car, leave the key in the run position for 10 minutes. Cycle the key off, then cycle it to the run position again for 10 more minutes. Cycle it off again, then back to run for another 10 min. after the last cycle turn it off then try to start the car. It is a 30 minute relearn. If this does not work you will need a repair shop to replace the passlock sensor. Good Luck

Testimonial: "it was in the ignition and the security activated i had to replace the whole igintion key and all "
check for a good spark first, if there is none look at ignition circuits its more likley this part,
it could also be the car alarm the immobiliser shutting of the ignition ""stops it getting nicked?"
try resetting the alarm if you take off pipe to carb and there is fule pumping out!!! fule filter is "ok" for starting up on!!! take care working with fule!

Yes. pass-lock has roughly a 10 minute timer.

Testimonial: "Thank you! I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for something non-related like a lot of other people have for the same problem."
make sure your cap and rotor timing is correct double check spark plug routes (mistakes happen). maybe your timing is off in general.

you have to leave it in the on position until the light stops flashing and then turn the car all the way to the off position then start it it works everytime for me make sure your radio and everything if off so it wont drain your battery
