No Start Due to Failed Passlock Sensor

The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.

Abnormal Clicking Noise From Hazard/Turn Signal Flasher

The turn signal switch may fail causing the hazard/turn signal flasher to continue to click even when the turn signal switch is off. Replacing the faulty turn signal switch will commonly correct this condition.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero Recalls

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.

GM Recalls 2000-2001 Vehicles Due to Turn Signal and Hazard Light Failure

GM has recalled 2000-2001 Chevrolet Malibu, Oldsmobile Alero, and Pontiac Grand Am vehicles because the turn signals and hazard lights may fail. This may increase the risk of a collision. Dealers will replace the hazard warning switch.

The Owner's Manual Does Not Explain the Child Restraint Anchor Location Symbols

The owner's manual does not explain the child restraint anchor location symbols for the lower universal anchorage system. This does not meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. Owners were sent supplements to the owner's manual explaining the location symbols in the vehicle. The recall began August 18, 2003. The GM recall number is 03039.

The alternator went out, and the plastic clips that hold th...
I have a 2001 and have replaced the engine once already and was just notified by a mechanic after just having the head gasket done I'm told I need another engine replacement. Had the cooling system redone, wheel barrings...mostly the engine and cooling sytem have been major issures.
