The problem occurs at least twice while driving. I don't drive often or far.

I crashed and my airbags went off, I replaced the windshield and got 2 new ones, I know I have to replace the sensors but don't know where they are or how many there is, and after I replace them, what do I have to do so that they can work again?

car was sitting for about a month, so of course in the cold the battery died. We charged the battery up and the car would turn over and run for about 2 secs and then dies it keeps doing this it also is pulsing all the relays in the car when the doors are open but when closed they shut off, also when i turn the key on the all the relays are clicking like crazy again, the blower motor random comes on when the cars not on either its very weird. so then went and bought a new battery and the same problems occurred, the car dies after about 2 secs and all the relays are triggering. So then i read up a little on this issue and seen the security light problem i then went and bypassed the security light with a resistor, problem still occurs. I have thought maybe the fuel pump but doesnt seem fitting on the count the car is starting im running out of ideas. also tried putting in a new fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator and IACV. STILL NOTING If anyone has an idea please let me no asap. Thanks

When I get it started and run it for a hour or so. Then when I go to start it again but it only fires and will not start.

Had faulty ignition bought new ignition switch and cylinder reinstalled and broke park lock cable in reassemble. Car turns over but won't start also noticed I blew the 30? Or 40? Amp fuse labeled ign.

I decide to replace the cables to see if that could be a cause of the car dying after running a bit. the car would start before, but now will crank, but wont start. I cant tell if I have good connection with cables due to that stupid cover plate with the sensor box.

The window came off track . I can hear the track running up and down , power windows , and I want to put it back on track

water leaks out next too the hose that connect into radiator when i put Coolant or Water in It. I dont know what it is i need help please ? anyone know whats going ?

How can i change the ignition switch without having the keys

Like its going to shut off

Don't happen when car is still and idling. Not noticeable all the time.

My 2002 alero dies while I am driving. It restarts but kills again. No Check engine light. A few times it backfired (I think) while trying different things such as shifting into 1st, 2nd, or 3rd or reving it up in neutral. A loud clunk came from under the car anyway, a few times. Anyone have a clue on how to fix it?

Replace the hazard/turn signal assembly due to signals not working every so often. With turn signal on left or right position it would stop. Push in the hazard switch just slightly and it would work. Now though in the vehicle the turn signal shows proper signal choice (left of right bulbs on dash flash the outside lamps all flash as if the hazard switch has been pushed.

I have changed the resistor,blower motor and switch and still only works on high. Also have checked fuses and relays

stalling out and has a gas smell in the oil
