Sounds like it might be time to replace the front struts. They're like shock absorders, just more expensive. If the noise gets worse when you take a right hand turn, it could be the CV joint too.
Check the Vehicle Emission Control Information ( VECI ) decal
located in the front of the engine compartment ( it will show the
type of spark plugs to use and the spark plug gap )
First thing that I would do is check the battery. The clicking sound is the selenoid on the starter. Usually that means the starter is bad. Isn't very hard to replace. Hope this helped.
clean out or replace the throttle body spacer...
i just had that fixed on my 97 jetta trek ... it's located in the distributor, just buy a new distributor it's about $400 dollars tho.. unless u get a used 1 .. once u replace that it willl turn off your check engine light!
If the light stays on, it shows that there is a hard fault in the fuel system, emissions control etc etc. Either disconnect the battery for 15 minutes or so or take it to a shop to get the code read..that will tell you what part is malfunctioning. There is no other way to shut it off because the light is controlled by the ECM.
I have taken it to the shop but the computer says there are no codes stored then the light goes out but a few days later it comes back on I take it to the shop and it is the same responce No Codes Stored and the light goes out
Yes, it is part of a very complicated & VERY TROUBLESOME system known as passlock. If you google this system you will find it's a typical problem on this model,but, you can also find enough info there to diagnose & repair yourself.

You have to replace the hazard/turn signal switch located in the center of the dash. Oldsmobile issued a recall for this part in 2004. If it has not been replaced, the dealer will do it for free. If it has been replaced, and failed again (like mine has) you are on your own. Call a dealer to see if it has been replaced yet.
it don't work?
first, check behind each of the tires to make sure the ABS wire is connected to the hub assembly (a wire comes from the engine and plugs into a clip on the hub). if that doesnt work see a mechanic. is the "anti-lock" light on as well? i have this problem. one of my ABS wires lost the clip so i need to get one from the junk yard. Is the car sputtering? it can also be problem with engine. Mine would come on when I had a problem with my injector.
Check your brakes and rotors
Try going off of the Fuse panel usually in wranglers its common for the connector (find the connector from fallowing the wire off of Horn fuse) comes loose and needs to be reset. its located by the steering column under dash.
Warped rotor. You will have to remove it and have it trued or replaced. Replace the pads at the same time. Do both front wheels.
The 2001 Oldsmobile water pump is located on the front of the engine. You can follow the top radiator hose directly to the water pump.
remove caliper bolts, use pry bar and force caliper off the mount, I would recomend that you replace the caliper because it is siezed from heat, and the rotor is most likely damaged as well, replace it also, reasemble with new pads and regreese the wheel berings, this most likely is the front driver side wheel right? replace the other side aswell or the breaks will not stop evenly jmh
2003 Oldsmobile Alero Brake Light Bulb Troubleshooting (check in this order):
· Check Fuse(s)
· Check Brake Bulbs - Including bad bulbs, loose connected or incorrectly installed bulbs, left, right and center high mount - 1 bad bulb or connection in the circuit can cause the entire circuit to malfunction.
· Check Turn Signal Bulbs
· Check switch on brake pedal
· Check license plate light bulb and wiring (sometimes on same circuit)
· Check trailer hitch wiring harness (sometimes on same circuit)
· Check all wiring harnesses and wiring for shorts
Most likely it's the fuse or a burnt bulb breaking the circuit. Sometimes the license plate and/or the trailer hitch is wired into other circuits and can cause issues in other areas. Sometimes its wires grounding out somewhere on the vehicle. See sources and related links below for bulb information. See owner's manual for location and identification of fuses.
The answer is in your owner's manual. Specifically, "After replacement, push and hold the "OFF" button for the front air conditioning for more than 4 seconds to reset the air filter clogging data. The "A/C FILTER RESET" appears on the multi-information display and a tone sounds to inform you that the data has been reset."
disconnect battery and wait a half hour, then pull fuse number ten, on left side of dash panel. you need a number 30 torx bit and a skinny extension and remove two screws on backside of steering wheel.pull horn cover slowly out and remove black ground wire and red horn wire, twist, and then use a small screwdriver and release losk tab and then gently pry up on connector. handle air bag module carefully.
Whenever you service the theft system you must do a relearn. Here is what you need to do. This is just a simple procedure that is going to reset the passlock system.
The problem is the plastic parts integral to the airbag/horn unit in the steering column. The plastic bits contract when cold and cause the horn's switches to contact. Once it starts, the only solution is to replace that assembly, costing around $800. Good times. Sometimes it will turn off when warm, like in the dealers garage, so the problem cannot be replicated, and then the car wakes up the entire neighbourhood at 3am again until you pull the fuse. I have same problem. Relay overheats. Did you find an answer?
