Im pretty sure I know what is wrong. This is pretty common in GM cars. Your security system has failed, meaning that you will still have power to the car but it will not start. Happened to me. I found this site they make a bypass module. I had a good experience with them and Installed it myself . Hope this helps ya.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 olds alero my wipers turn on but

Sounds like the wiper relay is on the fritz. Get the manual out and find the wiring diagram/ fuse box and replace the relay, this should fix the problem.

SOURCE: my 2002 Alero wont start

Since you've tried the 10 minute relearn process with no luck, Try this same process 3 x in a row without trying to start in between. Will take a little over a half hour. If this still does not work, and the security light is solid (not flashing) this indicates a bad TDM. (passlock security computer)(Theft Deterrent Module). A new one will cost about 700 bucks. But this entire system is able to be bypassed permanently. If all else fails, check out this link. Its full of info on how the system works, along with "do it yourself" ways to fix it.

2004 olds alero 3400 eng.turn on key and all warning lights and gauges come up,then all goes off after 3 seconds,starter will not work,can start by jumping across starter and runs fine and shifts fine

Check for power at the switch wire when someone turns the key to start. I would say there is a break in the circuit of the thin wire between the starter & the ignition switch

My 02 Alero runs rough, no power. I have a P0300 code and the engine light flashes. I changed the coil pack, and that did nothing. This all came about this morning. It ran fine till then.

needs new turn up, like new spark plug, new plug wires, air filter, clean throttle body and intake mainfold. make sure all the small vaccum tube not black up and has vaccum present when pull out the hose.

sounds like your ABS sensor is bad. The ABS sensor controls the trac. control. but it wouldnt effect daily driving. you would only notice it if you slamed on the brakes on a slick surface. the brakes will lock up like they ARE NOT supposed to.

Remove/replace power steering pump on a 2002 Olds alero. Works perfect-except whining noise-after I emptied/refilled the sump with new prestone power steering fliud!

Make sure that u get all the air out by turning the steering wheel from left to right.. And most important make sure the power steering fluid is for GM product.
Hope this helps..
