1997 Bonneville SSEI Spontaneous ELECTRICAL Shutdown

The first time this happened I received message 'transaction not available' as each electrical option shutdown.
Car would not restart without a boost ; would not continue to run after a boost.
2nd time - noticed gauges not working then ABS and traction control and stopped working - I spun out of control.
Car would still run and tested the battery was fully charged.
Alternator and Battery have both Tested "Good"
Code Reader Shows no Problems
2nd Alternator test - car ran.idled 15 minutes off Alternator without
any electrical problems showing up
anyone know where to explore next ?

    My 1997 Pontiac SSEI equipped with the supercharged 3.8L engine, stalls @ highway speeds. I have 175K miles on the car and have NO major problems. The car has had routine maintenance performed and just had a complete tuneup less than 5K ago. The fuel pump is reading is 42 psi @ idle. NO fault codes. Any ideas? Thanks. Dave

    I am no mechanic but I had the same problem with my car. WE changed the crank sensor, cam sensor and finally the computer. It was A OK then the fuel went out once we changed the computer. My car was reading the same PSi on the fuel pump and reading no codes either. I hope this helps too. And if you do change the computer make sure you are aware that it needs to be programmed to your cars VIN number and that a dealer is about the only place that can do it unless you order from a place online that will do that for you in advance. I got mine done that way.

    thanks Sharon

Interrior lights stay on


are your dasboard lights at full brightness?Turn your headlight switch(it may be on the interior light detent).BTW I drive a '97 Bonneville SE and one great thing about these cars is that if you leave a light on it will shut off after about 5 minutes so it won't drain your battery overnight.

2003 Bonneville SSEI


I am having the same problem and also occasionally the cruise just shuts off when I am driving on dry, straight roads. Code C1288 was cleared, but it continues to happen. I was told that the electric brake module needs to be reprogrammed and that it will cost about $80.00. They are still looking into it.
