Question about 1992 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

92 bonneville ssei intermitten starting problems/unreliable

Starter turns over slow always, had at two different gm garages the last few times, they replaced the ignition, battery, battery cables, and did a draw test done on the starter. Checked all wiring to starter. And still having problems! Is there something else we should be looking at?
Starter does not click. But let it rest a while and starts again. But still will turn over slow.
The car has 107,000mi still looks new in and out, all new tires, brakes, calipers, have alot invested, and is is safe car if I could get this reliability problem fixed. I would like to give to my daughter for her first car, but do not want her stranded.
Please help!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the info,it was very helpful!!!! I had the car stranded. Jacked it up and had someone crank it over while looking at all the connections on the starter, noticed a small spark on the ground wire of the solenoid, graounded the connection with a screwdriver and it started right up. Took the car home, removed the loose brass nut on the solenoid, cleaned all the connections, tightened the post, reassembled, sprayed alittle wd40 on the connections, and is starting like new again. Very, Very happy......

Try the Salvage yard, you can get then around $45.00 each if you pull the parts your self. Call around though, different Salvage Yards have different price and will always try to beat the price of another Salvage yard. They pull parts for you too if you don't fell like getting your hands dirty twice. Good luck.

2003 Bonneville SSEi keeps blowing interior light fuse.

I can think of 2 places that were probably overlooked because I've been through this same trauma myself with GM products. One, if you have a right(passenger) side visor with a lighted mirror you'll want to check the wiring at the pivot point. Two, under the passenger side rocker panel trim, there is a ribbon harness with about 15 wires within and it may become chaffed by stepping in and out of the vehicle. Both of these have a constant feed with or without the engine running.Whoops, there's a third one I forgot about. Check the wires running through the rubber tube to the drivers door. Good luck my friend, Dana

Stability system The "service stability system" light as well as the ABS and Brake lights have gone on. Is this a major repair? SHould the car serviced by a dealer? this is on a 2000 bonneville ssei.

the service stability light as well as the abs light is all conected to the wheel sensor. To fix it is simple if you kn,w how to do a brake job,it is all conected to the hub assembly. I replaced both front wheel sensors due to that problem. you can by the hub assembly for around 100.00 dollars at auto zone. the wire that connects to the wheel always breaks and these codes come up.
