Re: volt light(battery symbol)on my 94 Bonneville came on...
Your alternator is not charging the battery an auto electrician is where a replacement will be if there is one close to you you can charge your battery and drive but go directly to get fixed it wont run for a long time as the battery losses its power the car will stop hope this is helpful glenn...

If you put a volt meter on the battery and it reads 12 volts before you cranked the engine and it drops to 10 volts or less when you crank the engine, this indicates you have a bad cell in the battery and you should replace the battery because it is not holding the charge. The loud click sound coming from your starter is because you are not supplying enough voltage to energize it.
I was just thinking about the sudden stall problem ,and no start problem .Have you checked the coil pack. When the car is cold it should start ,when it warms up ,with the under hood temps ,it will probably stall ,again. Try replacing the coil pack .
Hope this helps
Your description sounds like a bad battery. Do you have a volt meter to watch the voltage as you turn the key to start? The voltage on a good battery( meaning fully charged) should stay about 11 volts while cranking, if it drops below that suspect a bad battery.
Another possibility is that the battery is good but the alternator is not charging.
Will it start with a jump? If is does check with a volt meter the out put of the alternator it should be 13.8 volts or slightly higher.
the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck
i have a 94 pontiac bonneville that stalls while driving. It seems to die always when I drive the car for more than 20 minutes. (During traffic) It recently has had a tune up (oil, oil filter, plug, wires) Replace module and fuel filter as well. I have had two different mechanics look at my car and no codes showed up for them. They mentioned fuel pump and crank sensor, which they CAN'T guarantee this will fix the problem. I've done some research online and have read that people with same problem have replaced both and this did not fix the problem. Any other suggestions??????
Is there corrosion on the battery cables under the insulation. There may be a smaller + battery wire going from the battery to the fuse block. Same for the ground. Are these cables clean and secure. If so start checking fuses and voltage.
