Problem with an 02 Olds Alero

I have an 02 Olds Alero and for some reason when the weather is cold outside my power windows don't work, the heat wont come on,the speedo, gas, and all other gauges will stay at 0. I really have no idea what's causing the problem.

If anybody could help that would be great.

That could be a tough problem to track down if you have no automotive electrical trouble shooting skills . Viewing wiring diagams for one of the affected systems , an testing that systems electrical circuit with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter when the the problem is there , would probably locate problem for all of the affected systems . They must have something in common , power supply , ground , share a connector in a wiring harness etc....
Learning how to trouble shoot electrical problems is a must !

SOURCE: I put a 14 oz can of 134a in my 00 olds alero with no results.

The A/C system is normally a sealed system. This means the R134a only emptied if there was a leak. This system holds approx 24 oz of R134a (check label under the hood or near evaporator) so one can may not activate the compressor due to low pressure in the system.
Before adding anymore, check all tubing, the condensor and near the compressor for signs (oil leaking, hissing) of the leak. Good Luck

SOURCE: how to check trans oil on the '02 olds alero

Hi! The transmission on this model does not have a dipstick. Instead it uses a transmission fluid oil check plug. It is accessed under vehicle. To check fluid level you must remove oil check plug. if fluid is coming out transmission is full. If it requires some fluid you can get a gear oil bottle and a short piece of hose to put on end of nipple and squeeze dextron 3 transmission fluid in until it runs out of plug hole. Then re-install plug and snug it up. **Note: Car must be on level surface with engine off when checking. Use suitable jack stands in front and rear to make vehicle as level as possible.Always wear safety goggles when working under vehicle. I have included a picture of fill plug location for you. I hope you find this information useful!caf5dc7.gif

Need help location of fuse relay on my 1999 olds alero for power windows


All the windows work off one circuit breaker, there isn't a relay for them. So if one works, they all have power. Replace the window regulator and motor inside the door.

Could be something sticking although it is odd that it shuts when cold but sticks when Hot. Normally when something heats up like that it shuts down not the other way around. Check for some miss placed glue or something that might loosen up when heated but get sticky when cold.

2000 Olds Alero. Cooling/Heating fan stopped


The blower is on the right hand side under the dash. You are right in thinking the blower resistor is the problem. The resistor is in the heater box behind the blower. Only 2 bolts hold it in but the back one can be a challenge to remove. The bolt is 5.5 mm.

Check for power and ground with a test light at the resistor connector. You should have power on the colored wires in the various switch positions. The black one is ground.
