Check your battery cables,, they are probably loose or corroded. Side mount batteries that hold multiple cables have this problem that occurs over an extended period of time. Cleaning the connections and retightening the hold down bolt may fix it. Sometimes a 3/8 bolt and a washer with a nut can be used to get
a more positive holding force to keep the cable tight.

Car turns over.. wont ignite .. gages r reading zero!! Fuel pump or sensor??!


fuss ok? how about fuse link ?any light in cluster? when you turn ignition key to ''on'' position your dash lights should come on like engine , air bag , brake, etc and should turn off in few seconds if they dont come on, check the fuse panel for blown fusses. also check them for power with key on most of them should have power except a few that only power up when the engine cranks or runs. the fuss links are special pieces of cable that feed the susses they're designed to break when overheated and are on the positive battery cable in the starter side end . if the lights in the dash work as noted the security system may be active .

1996 pontiac bonneville wont start has no headlights but does have interior lights. had starter tested was told it was fine. battery is also fine. makes a clunk when i try to start it then nothing. have...


see if you can turn the motor with a ratchet or breaker bar and socket, if you cannot turn it relatively easy you may have a locked up engine, if you can turn it then replace the starter anyway, bench testing is not an accurate way of telling what a component will do when installed in the vehicle. the louder the "clunk" the higher the likelyhood of the locked up motor

1996 pontiac bonneville wont start and headlights wont work


If you don`t have any lights on in the instrument panel then try getting a jump start.If it starts then have your battery and charging system checked.If you do have lights in the I.P.then make sure your getting power to the starter.Good luck.

All the dash lights come on when I turn the key .The engine won't crank and the security light keeps flashing thank you 1994 bonneville


This is either your starter, or could be your ignition switch. Both are decently priced, but can be labor costly at a shop. About 2 to 3 hours for either one.

If the starter won't turn it over how can it try to start. More correct info? Is it getting any spark to the plugs?

Engine doesn't start


Sounds like a electrical problem, either bad battery or starter is drawing to much amps.
