SOURCE: 1994 pontiac bonneville.car starts but stops after

This car uses a key with a transponder chip in it. The ignition reads the value of the chip thru 2 small contacts just inside the entrance of the keyhole. These contacts are known to get dirty, wear out, or become totally disconnected from the wire they are hooked to. Use electrical cleaner in the lock cylider and run the key in and out a few times to clean the lock. This is your temporary fix. The next item you may want to try ,is having another chip key made. If this doesn't work, then you will need to replace the ignition cylinder. You can try "Plastichead Keys" for these parts. They can be reached at plasticheadkeys@aol.com.

SOURCE: replaced headlight switch car wont start security

The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

SOURCE: 1997 pontaic bonneville security light

The problem is your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. Cheap fix: ----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/ ----- Bypassing the key Never worry again fix: -------- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081 ----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites

Engine vibration and flashing check engine light


The flashing check engine light and the symptom you described indicate you have an engine misfire. The most common problem is the coils. You have two options. You can either scan the engine computer for trouble codes that will help you identify or narrow down the possibilities. I'm going to bet that there is one or more of the following codes. P0301, P0302, P0303, and/or P0304. The other option is to get a spark tester and test each coil one at a time to see which one is not working.

I have a 97 bonnaville. While the car is running, all the lights flicker and the engine surges in sync with the lights. I have also smelt something burning but the smell only lasts a few seconds. A month...


The engine in the Bonneville is known to have problems with the intake manifold, this can cause poor idle and sometimes a smell. The pipe from the EGR valve causes the plastic next to it to melt, sometimes coolant can get into the intake. This needs to be looked at as soon as possible, because water getting into the cylinders can cause major damage.

I have 2001 bonneville. I was driving and stopped at a light and my service engine soon light starts flashing. My car acts like it doesn't want to pick up speed and it is shaking a little. Do you have any...


usually when the check engine light is flashing it indicates that you need to tune it up. I would replace the plugs and wires. Do it one at a time so you don't forget firing order. Leave comment
