Question about 1998 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

Not starting I was just about to start the car, it seemed normal, (lights on the dash board were normal, the gauges seemed to be fine etc) but as I turn the key to actually start the engine all shout down!!! I mean everything as there was no energy coming from the battery, my first tought is that probably a fuse burnt, if so do you know what fuse it will be? I don`t have the user manual for my car so I will really appreciate if you give a link where I can check it out, or well what do you think it might be?? Thanks for your time, and I really appreciate your help!!!

Corroded battery terminals is the first place I would look.Take them off and clean them nice and shiny. Replace them and make sure they are tight(use a six point socket or wrench) No so tight that you bust them off or strip them. Just tight enough that you can't move them. Hope this helps

1990 dodge caravan Le,the dash gauges all turn off after 10 sec of starting the van


ALWAYS check the body grounds first. Ground to the dash gages could be faulty, dirty, or just not tight enough to make a good connection.

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.


The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.


I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps

Hi .....EF fford falcon , the alt light comes on , light go dim , dash gauges go to zero , the lights buzzer goes off , and will stall the engine , if you jump start it , it may go back to normal, and...


Sounds like the alternator needs replacing or a loose wire/cable.Check the starter and alternator wires/cables are securely fastened.Also use a multi meter to check wether your alternator is providing enough power to run the electrical system,should be producing no less than 12.8 with all lights etc switched on.
