Your turn signal switch is faulty, it happens in almost all Aleros, and Grand AM that I know of.
#32 of 59 Problems with 2003 Olds Alero
Mar 17, 2008 (6:19 am)
This morning upon starting my Alero I received 3 alerts "Vehicle Service Soon" "Trac Off" and "Anit-Lock" - is this common? I've seen a few posts, and I'm starting to believe it is... I have an appt today to get it checked out.
On an unrelated note my Alero (which has 48k miles) also has starting issues. Whenever I take a short drive - 10 miles or less, the next time I go to start it hesitate quite a bit before turning over. Sometimes I have to start over and just turn the key again until it starts...Has anyone experienced this as well? I have brought it up to the dealership MANY times and they can't duplicate it and claim to know nothing about the problem.
Of course my 5yr warranty expired TEN days ago. Figures.
Thanks for any input!

I would have the battery condition checked.

I had an 03 Alero and had so many problems with it-I traded it in.Had 33k miles -left me stranded more times than I can remember.Shame because the car drove nice (when it ran) and I liked the big back seat and storeage but car had gremlins
#35 of 59 2002 Alero Factory Stereo Replacement
Mar 30, 2008 (8:24 am)
Want to replace my factory Alero CD/Casette stereo with JVC unit, but notice several 'addional' wires present in the factory wiring harness not found in typical setups (not present in my 99 Grand Am). Does anyone have the wiring harness diagram or color coding handy so I can figure out what goes to what? I think it might be the 'extra' speakers (tweeters?) in the doors and rear speakers grilles, but I want to make sure. Thanks, all!

For some reason My car will not start I got a jump assumed it was my battery.Replaced the battery it drove good for a day then died out agian. When it dies it leaves my gas gage at how ever much gas I have. Which it should go down to E once the car is turned off. Its not turning over or anything. Any ideas?

Hi there, not sure if you have had your problem corrected yet or not, but it's NOT a battery problem, lol. When those lights come on at the same time, you either have a problem with a wheel bearing, or the wheel speed sensor, which is attached to the wheel bearing. You cannot purchase the sensor by itself, unfortunately. You will need to have the vehicle scanned to determine which one it is. good luck.
