SOUNDS LIKE A POOR BATTERY CONNECTION. CHECK THEM BY TAKING THEM OFF AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLEAN. USE A WIRE BRUSH OR A PIECE OF SANDPAPER. MAKE SURE THEY ARE GOOD AND TIGHT WHEN YOU PUT THEM BACK ON... GOOD LUCK

It's possible that the wire that connects the starter to the battery has corrosion/battery acid on it and is creating a lot of resistance in the wire. Sometimes you'll have a good connection, sometimes you'll have a bad connection thus creating an intermittent problem. You should check the wire that hooks into the starter, disconnect it, clean it with a small, wire bristle brush, and maybe spray some of that red, battery terminal spray on it, then hook it back up. Make sure you disconnect the battery first. It's pretty hard to get down in there but you can save yourself a ton of money if you do it yourself. You may be able to reach it better from underneath if you drive the car up on some ramps.

99 Pontiac bonneville wont start. just get a humming. no crank or starter sound


This may be related to the antitheft security system. The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. When it's the security locked out starter, you won't even hear a click when you turn the key. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

Cant get my starter to engage when I turn the key on.


Is the battery fully charged and all cables clean and tight? You can try tapping on starter motor with a blunt object while trying to crank it. If it starts, the starter motor is bad

On my 2002 Pontiac Bonneville, sometimes when you are driving it and you stop at a store or something and you get back in it and try to crank it, it won't do anything when you turn the key and if you


Test the battery charge, and alternator. The easiest way to eliminate the alternator is to start and remove the positive battery terminal, if it dies your alternator is bad. You can also go to Auto zone and they will test them for free. Sounds like you don't have enough cranking amps out of the battery though.

Quick question, does the "security" light illuminate on the dash when you put your key forward and when it wont turn over? Do you have a little black chip in your key?

Dash lights come on turn to start position and dead wont start-


Your solenoid could be shorting out or worn out. They lights will look bright, but as soon as you crank motor, the lights dim. Or if your battery cable connections are not metal-to-metal contact, they will do this as well. Many GM's, especially bonnevilles, have the rubber ends on end of battery cables, These rubber ends prevent a tight metal to metal connection. I had to use washers on two bonnevilles I worked on.

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.
