Wow, talk about everything going wrong at once! I'm interested in the broken wires. I'm wondering if one goes to the fuel pump, and that is why the car won't start. It would seem u were out of gas, and adding some wouldn't help, so that's my 1st choice as to what is wrong. Have those wires splice back together, if that's not it, let me know. Good Luck (u need it!)

Re: 2001 Pontiac Bonneville Sedan no Heat on passenger side, blows COLD Air under glovebox. gas/fuel What type of gas in ? Premium,Unleaded electric windows dont roll down

I don't know about your heater problem, especially if there is heat on the driver's side. Could just be a closed vent on the other side. BUT, If all 4 of your power windows went out simultaneously, pray that it's a fuse issue. Because if it isn't, either all 4 of your window switches or all 4 of your window motors have gone out. Just be glad they're stuck up instead of down. I've had several replaced. It's expensive and involves pulling off the door interiors.

2000 Pontiac Bonneville Are the tiresensors programmed to be in one specific location such as drivers right, passengers right If I move rear left to front right will this freak the computer out

No it doesn't freak out the computer. But if you move a front tire to the rear and it goes low. The scanner will think it is the front. When you swap them they have t be programmed to where they sit. But it is no big deal. Put a tire gauge on them.

Where are the fuses located for the air conditioner in a 2001 pontiac bonneville

The interior fuse box in a Pontiac Bonneville is underneath the backseat on the driver's side.

To remove the rear seat cushion:
1. Pull up on the front of the cushion to release the
front hooks.
2. Pull the cushion up and out toward the front of
the vehicle.

To reinstall the rear seat cushion:

1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then
route the safety belts through the proper slots in the
seat cushion. Don't let the safety belts get twisted.
2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the
seatback so the rear - locating guides hook into the
wire loops on the back frame.
3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and
then press down on the seat cushion until the spring
locks on both ends engage.
4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly
routed and that no portion of any safety belt is
trapped under the seat. Also make sure the seat
cushion is secured.

The battery and main fuse blocks are located
under the rear seat cushion. The battery's ground
terminal and some relay wires are exposed.
To help avoid damage to the battery and wires,
be careful when removing or reinstalling the seat
cushion. Do not remove covers from covered
parts. Do not store anything under the seat, as
objects could touch exposed wires and cause
a short.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1995 pontiac bonneville

It should located on the passenger side, just a little ahead of the right rear tire, on the inside of the framerail. There is a small pocket between the frame and fuel tank. It will have either a black plastic or silver metal bracket holding it, and has a steel line running into it from the tank.

My 1993 bonneville runs great for a while than it acts like its not getting gas u push the gas paddle and it does nothing but shuts off. it will start right back up we have changed fuel filter and put new...

I am not sure on yours , but the newer ones you can replace the pump from the trunk area. You don't have to drop the tank. To access the pump remove the spare tire cover and you will see the pump cover.

I have a 2001 Bonneville and the heater blower motor does not work it use to and I could smack the glove compartment and it would come on . now nothing. How do I remove it?

Sounds like the blower motor. Pretty typical for our generation of Bonneville (mine's a 2005).
Remove the panel under the passenger side dash; I recall two small screws.
There may be a couple wires to unplug from this panel.
The blower motor is located right above the passenger toes.
Unplug the three wire plug.
Remove a small rubber hose. It has one right angle bend. It's about the size and length of a big thumb.
Remove 3 small screws on the fan, and the fan comes out.

How to replace fuel tank sensor on 2001 bonneyvlle

On my 2001 Bonneville there is access to the fuel pump and fuel tank level sensor from the trunk. Remove everything from the trunk as well as the carpet that covers the spare tire. You will see an aluminum looking cover near the back seat of the passenger side. Remove the five screws from the cover. I then had to use a screwdriver to lightly pry the cover off in a couple of different areas of the cover. It was pretty well sealed. Autozone's website has a fair step by step procedure as well.

Very hard starting, also stalls intermittently. seems like starving for gas at times

Probably is starving for fuel. Replace your fuel filter. Most cars it is near the rear passenger tire. Follow the gas lines near the rear. Most of the time they are long as your hand and round, and black. Almost guarantee this is your problem.
