my 2000 "pos" alero v6 still gets crap mileage. if anyone has any suggestions that would improve my gas mileage i would love to hear them. i changed the fuel filter, plugs, wires, etc. nothing helps. i think i might blow it up if i cant figure this out

Were you ever able to find the short in the wiring? Our 99 Alero has the same problem - using either of the 2 chargers causes the fuse to blow; we've replaced it a number of times to no avail. I've looked under the hood and under the car for bad/loose wiring but haven't seen anything (not that much of the wiring is visible).

No, we never did find the short but we really didn't spend too much time looking. I am going to take my car to a friend of my dad's who is a mechanic and see if he can find the short. I'll save your message and let you know if I find it. Have you had any problems with the heat in your car? Just replaced the resistor over the summer because nothing was blowing; now the blower works fine on all speeds, but sometimes I get hot air and sometimes I do not.

Turn signals on my 2004 Alero may or may not work when selected. I'm reading about earlier cars having this problem and that it is tied to the hazard system. Does Gm cover this on the 2004. When they do work I can't locate where the sound of the flasher is coming from. Can anyone help. I haven't tried the hazard lites when the signals fail but will do tomorrow.
Thanks for all the prevoius info.

Steering wheel vibration on braking is usually caused by warped front brake rotors. Can also be caused by worn front end or steering component like outer tie rod ends.- Butchkaz

My daughters 2000 Alero is having a weird problem. When it is shut off, the oil light and park indicator light (PRNDL) stays on. In addition, there is a whine under the hood that I cannot isolate. It's somewhere near the alternator, and it VERY quiet. This kills the battery if she lets it sit for more than 2 days.
A local mechanic thought it might be the Body Control Module, which I replaced and did absolutely no good.

You need a wiring diagram to see how these things are related and what switch, relay, etc controls them. It could be lots of things. You may be able to isolate it by pulling fuses to see what circuit is the culprit. Pull the fuses on at a time, and when(and if) the problem goes away, presto, you have found it.
