Door Lock & Radio Issue (Alero)

I just picked up this 2004 Alero with 51K miles. The car is literally like new except for these couple issues. I'm not sure if they are related or not. Everything is stock original. Here's the scenarios:


Start engine, put in drive

Doors automatically lock

Stop car, put in park, kill engine

Doors will NOT unlock automatically


Turn key to on position or start engine

Radio plays and works perfectly

With radio "on", turn key to off position, remove key, open door

Radio still plays,

Get out of car and lock doors with remote, radio still is on.

unlock doors with remote, open and shut door(s), re-lock doors with remote,

radio then turns off.

Can someone please tell me what to check to solve these two issues? This is my sons first car and I want to make sure these issues are fixed before I turn it over to him.

2002 olds Silhouette

My 2002 olds Silhouette was running great but I let my nephew drive it to Idaho from South Carolina, now before he drove it I had noticed that when I tried to crank it,it wouldn't turn over but I would try to crank it again and it cranked right up. The van ran perfect, no knocks in the engine or problems with the transmission.It ran perfect going to Idaho although hesitated to crank once on the trip. As soon as he made it to Idaho to his apartment

He turned it off and when he tried to crank it it would start at all, he tried jumping it off but no luck so due to money constraints the van sit a little under a month and he finally towed it to the mechanic and they replaced the starter so now it will crank butt it won't stay cranked so now they are trying to figure out what's wrong. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

1990 88 Royale wont start when hot

I have a 90' Olds 88 (3800 Series 1) with 60,000 miles. When the car is driven for 30-40 minutes and you turn it off like you would do to stop and get gas the car will not restart. I have to wait 2 hours for it to fully cool down before it will start up again.

I have replaced the fuel pump, sending unit, ICM, EGR, MAF, Idle controler, fuel regulator, alternator and crank position sensor. What would cause this to happen? It makes no sense to me so any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

1998 Oldsmobile 88 stahled out and now won't turn over

I was driving my 98 88 Oldsmobile that when driving, sputters alot. I stopped yesterday and put $10 gas in the car. When I left the gas station, I got to a red light about 500 ft. away. As I waited for the light to change green, the car stalled out and now won't turn over? The more I try to start it, the worse it seems to get. It's to the point now that it doesn't even want to try to turn over, it now is starting to just make a clicking sound. Don't know what the problem could be?

2000 intrigue

Just bought this intrigue recently and when you put it in anything other than park there's a warning chime that relentlessly dings during your entire drive. Was wondering if maybe somehow a seatbelt wire was lose or something however there are no indicator lights on the dash. The fuel gauge works when it wants but last start it said full and still had the constant warning chime. Any tips or ideas would be great, for now the radio works to drown out the chiming.

1995 Olds Cutlass supreme

Have what they call a "throw away" Cutlass that started running rough. Long story short the car will now start and idle when you step on the gas it will rev to 2000/2500 rpms then start backfiring and sputtering. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, EGR valve, map sensor, spark plugs, coil pack, pressure regulator, manifold gaskets, have checked and cleaned the catalytic converter, and checked the relay fuse. Problem is the car has no power, Can't get it to go. Any ideas what the problem is or what else I can do. Please and thank you for any suggestions.
