It's the check valve on your fuel pump easy way to test is turn key to on position 3 times and then try to start it if it starts it's the check valve if not i cant help but worth a try good luck

It's the 10amp fuse in the engine compartment in front of the compressor relay. This fuse will stop Alero from starting when it is cold. Fuse controlled bcm supply


It’s the 10 amp fuse because the ac compressor has a short. Either unplug ac compressor, get a circuit breaker 10amp, or replace ac compressor. Odd, but true.
