Answers :

Sounds like your ABS sensor is bad. The ABS sensor controls the trac. control. but it wouldnt effect daily driving. you would only notice it if you slamed on the brakes on a slick surface. the brakes will lock up like they ARE NOT supposed to.
On the 2002 Olds Alero and all the dash lights came on all at once could be a few things however, I also have a 2002 Olds Alero and that also happened to me. Thinking it was odd, I just gave the key a slight jiggle and they all went back off. Try it while car is running. Have nothing to lose. good luck.

I have a 1992 MR2 G Limited Automatic. I had a reconditioned engine put in it in 2009 due to the original one having a head gasket problem and have had niggly problems ever since. Firstly the car seems to pick the wrong gears when cold and doesn't start away in Drive. You have to manually use 1, 2 and then Drive for at least 10 minutes of driving. Once warm, the car's great.

Everything works in the car but after driving I turn off the car. After few minutes to a couple of hours I get back into the car to try to start the car and I get nothing. Not a sound. I have all my dash lights, radio, head lights, everything turns on but it wont start. Now when the car sits for 4 hours or longer it will start up like there was nothing wrong with no problems.

I have two problems with my 2003 Sunfire: 1) the rear driver side blinker light keeps blowing out. I've replaced the bulb 4 times in two weeks. My second problem is that every 4 weeks, my car will cut off on me while driving. I can immediately start it back up but it will cut off a few more times. Then out of nowhere it will drive as if nothing is wrong with it. I do have gas in the car and I keep the oil changes completed. I have taken it to several places that use that handheld tester
