#1 of 59 Car won't start/will/won't, but no gauges work?!
Sep 24, 2006 (2:38 pm)
Ok, I have a 2003 Alero with 106,000 miles on it, got in it this afternoon, it wouldn't start. About 30 minutes later, it started but the radio wouldn't come on. I had not left any lights on, I got a new battery about 1 1/2 months ago, the key fob does not work. After I let it run for awhile, the battery light came on, the lights come on and they are bright, (normal). I shut it off, it wouldn't start again. Got it started a little while later, still no radio and all the lights come on like they should on the dashboard when you start the car up, but the fuel gage, tach, speedomoeter, and temp. gauge does not work. This is very aggravating. Any ideas what it could be?

Ok, the fun continues, I turned the key to the "on" position and left it there for about 20 mintues, came back on and the radio was on and it STARTED, but then as I took it for a drive around the block, it said I was in PARK the whole time, still no gauges working, so I got it back, shut it off, turned it back on, all the dash lights lit up, after a pause, then the "service vehicle soon", oil light, security light and battery light stayed on. Ugh. Also, once I put it in gear, the radio would then shut off.

Ok after happening multiple time, finally figured out what was going on, the drains for the sunroof had somehow gotten clogged, causing them to leak into my fuse box and short it out. Problem fixed, and crossing fingers that it stays that way.
#5 of 59 My power windows are tripping....what's up?!?!?

Yesterday something strange happened..... I tried to roll down my windom to pay toll and the thing didn't work. Not only does the driver window not work, but the passenger front window didn't work. The back windows work fine.
This morning when I got in the car, the back windows and the passenger front windw worked, but the driver's window still doesn't work. What is the deal? Can anybody give me insight on what to do?
I am driving a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero - 4 dr.

As far as I can tell there is no way to disable it! I have begged the dealer to do so because I am having problems with the security system. Finally after 3 visits they told me how to fix it, without having to bring it in. But if you ever figure out how to do it let me know!!
