Oldsmobile Alero Turn Signal And Engine Light Problems

2001 Oldsmobile Alero 3.4L 6 Cylinder. Turning signals would work properly (sometimes they would work, sometimes they wouldn't). Took into shop and they fixed. Not sure what they did to fix the turning signal problem Question: Once my 2001 Olds Alero is shut off and locked up, the outside lights (yellow) will flash periodically. Even hours after it has been sitting.

Answer: This could be a couple of things. A faulty turn / hazzard flasher is common for this and the original problem you had. But also the turn signal switch in the steering column. So it kind of depends on what was replaced already. The flasher is a fairly easy part to replace. You would just need to removed the dash trim panel around it and the new one pops right in.

1999 Oldsmobile Alero.3.4L V6. Service engine soon light. Did a tune up. Question: my car keeps cutting off when it comes to a stop, it will start back up but i have no clue why it cuts off every time I'm no longer pushing on the gas. I got a tune up and had two parts replaced and it still cuts off, do you know why? I don't remember what the two parts were that the mechanic replaced.

Answer: There could be multiple reasons that cause this problem. There could be a carbon build up inside the throttle body that is not allowing enough air to get through at an idle, which in turn will cause the vehicle to idle at a very low speed or even die out. Not sure what parts you had replaced with your tune up, but you could also be experiencing a misfire condition that is causing the stall, possibly coils, ignition wires or ignition module.

If the Service engine soon light is on, you definitely have a problem that needs to be checked out by a technician. There will be a trouble code set that will help diagnose the problem for you. Most of the large national parts store chains will scan the computer for free.
