Complaint - Electrical System

2001 OLDS ALERO WITH ONLY 31,000 MILES - WIFE CALLED AND SAID IT WOULD CRANK BUT NOT START, SHE TRIED MULTIPLE TIMES, I DROVE TO LOCATION (ABOUT 15 MINUTES) USED MY KEY, IT WOULD CRANK OVER BUT NOT START, HAD IT TOWED TO LOCAL GARAGE, AFTER SITTING OVERNIGHT THEY TRIED STARTING, IT WOULD NOT, PUSHED IT INTO THE GARAGE AND CHECKED TO SEE IF ENGINE WAS GETTING FUEL, IT WAS BUT IT WOULD SHUT OFF AFTER A SECOND OR TWO, THEY DETERMINED IT WAS THE SECURITY SYSTEM PASSLOCK II CAUSING THE ISSUE ALLOWING TO CRANK BUT SHUTTING OFF THE FUEL, THEY WENT THROUGH A 10 MINUTE RESET PROCEDURE AND IT STARTED. I RESEARCHED ON THE NET AND FOUND THIS TO HAVE HUNDREDS (IF NOT MORE) OF COMPLAINTS FROM GM OWNERS 1996 THRU 2004 I BELIEVE, MANY PEOPLE BEING RIPPED OFF FOR REPAIRS AND REPLACEMENTS THAT DO NOT RESOLVE THE ISSUE. I UNDERSTAND FROM THIS RESEARCH THAT HONDA HAD A SIMILAR ISSUE AND PUT OUT A RECALL. WHY DOESN'T GM ADMIT THEY HAVE A PROBLEM AND FIX IT THRU A RECALL?? THEY SAY THIS ISN'T A SAFETY ISSUE, I SAY IT IS, WHAT IF MY WIFE HAS OUR INFANT GRAND DAUGHTER WITH HER AND GOES TO LEAVE SOMEPLACE AND IT IS 0 DEGREES OUTSIDE, SHE NOW HAS TO WAIT 10 MINUTES AND HOPE THE CAR WILL START? OR IF YOUR CAR STALLS ON A RAILROAD TRACK AND NOW I HAVE TO WAIT 10 MINUTES TO LET IT RESET, THE LIST GOES ON AND THIS IS NOT THE OWNER'S PROBLEM, IT IS THE SELLERS PROBLEM THEY SHOULD BE FORCED TO FIX. TOWING COST WAS $55 AND GARAGE COST WAS $29 BUT OTHERS HAVE SPENT HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS ON WORTHLESS REPAIRS AND REPLACEMENTS - SUGGEST YOU DO A LITTLE RESEARCH ON PASSLOCK PROBLEMS AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN.
