#1 - Battery problem of the 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
I attempted to start my 2002 Oldsmobile Alero and it won't start. It was as if the fuel was shut-off. I had to have my car towed home. I noticed the security light was flashing. I checked on-line and people suggested, turning the key to the start position and leaving for 10 minutes, apparently this allows the computer to reset. (or you can disconnect the battery and reconnect it, this will also reset the computer. ) there is a problem with the passlock system. It's a huge problem for many people. Gm does not acknowledge this problem and is unwilling to correct the defect. This defect should be recalled. This problem occurred on Monday, Jan. 3, 2011.

#2 - Battery problem of the 2003 Oldsmobile Alero
The vehicle was a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero. Bought car in 2006, have had problems the entire time I've owned vehicle. Car does not crank, must wait 10 minutes and try to restart. Sometimes car does not start still, makes me wait another 10 min. Had multiple problems with system killing the battery while waiting - especially in winter, even with all extras (including heat) turned off. Not safe to have female in parking lot when car does not start! this happens two or three times some days, then will not reappear for a week or two, but theft light stays on dash constantly. This battery problem happened on Tuesday, August 1, 2006.

#3 - Battery problem of the 2003 Oldsmobile Alero
The vehicle involved is a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero. The VIN of the problem Alero is 1G3NL52E33_. The passlock feature is defective. Numerous times I have been stranded due to my car not starting. I have gotten a new battery and the problem is still there. When the car doesn't start I will do what the manual says and turn the key to "on" and let it stay there for 10 minutes, after that it will start. That can become very frustrating when you have two small kids and it is 20 degrees outside. There really should be a recall on this feature, I took the car to the dealership and they are telling me it will cost over $400. 00 to fix. Normal hard working people don't have that type of money just laying around to fix a car, gm really should do better. There really should be a recall to fix this problem without costing the consumer. It was Mar. 1, 2009 when this battery issue happened.
#4 - Battery problem of the 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
The vehicle was a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero. Vehicle stalled while driving approximately 25 mph and would not restart. The dealer replaced the battery. It was October 4, 2003 when this battery issue occurred.
#5 - Battery problem of the 2002 Oldsmobile Alero
The car involved was a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero. The car had a crash. Security light comes on and the car shuts off while driving. We lost steering and were headed toward oncoming traffic, but ran over a street sign and stopped. Sometimes the light will come on and no problems until after we park and shut the car off. When we try to start it again, sometimes it starts back up fine and other times it turns over, but wont fire. When this happens, we have to turn the key to the on position for 10 minutes. During this 10 minutes the security light flashes. After exactly 10 minutes the light turns solid for 5 seconds and then shuts off. We then take the key out, put it back in and the car starts. My understanding is that the car think it's being stolen and shuts down the fuel system instantly. We lose complete steering when this happens. Whats also happening is the security system is draining the battery while the car is shut off. When we get anywhere we have to take the security fuses out so the battery doesn't drain. This is a severe safety concern. There are post all over the internet with people having the same problem. This battery problem happened on 01/03/12.
