SOURCE: Changing battery in 2004 Bonneville

Where did you read this info.? In the owner's manual that comes with all cars and is usually in the glove compartment, it should give you a lot of the info. that you are asking about. Usually, something like changing the battery which is going to have to be done more than once in the lifetime of a car; would not be extremely difficult. I have removed rear seats and it sounds worse than it is. If you have done very much work on a car, you know that the #1 thing that you are always told to do is to disconnect the negative battery cable; even if what you're doing is something like changing the tire, oil, etc. Just use some common sense and you'll be fine. Be sure that you don't touch the cables to each other or metal, but it sounds like you know that since your main concern if the seat.

The oil pressure sending unit is located behind the oil filter, Threaded into an aluminunm housing. It has wiring that plugs into the sending unit. The oil filter has to be removed and you will need a deep well socket and a 6 inch extension. Change the oil and the sending unit together.

It sounds like a bad connection somewhere, check the battery cable connections for corrosion and tightness, both ends. It could be the starter, starter solenoid, starter relay, neutral safety switch or ignition. Try moving the shift lever to the "N" position and see if that helps. When you say you have a dead key, do you mean you have no dash lights, (oil pressure light, battery light, things of that nature) no clicking, no nothing?

2001 Bonneville, when you turn the key it makes a kind of screeching noise for a second or two...will eventually crank. Replaced the starter....don't know what to do next.

Have you cleaned the corrosion off the battery terminals and battery cable? Corrosion lowers the amount of amperage that can be pasted from the battery to the starter.

New battery, car acts as if the battery is drained

Check your positive terminal for corrosion. Older GM terminals often have some built up inside the rubber boot that cant be seen from the outside. This in turn increases the resistance of the electrical circuit. (Not enough current is getting to the starter.) I would replace the terminal bolt also if it rounded off or if the threads are damaged. They are only 2 or 3 dollars.

Use a really small flat head screwdriver to pry it out of the boot then you will be to check the inside of the boot.

Some GM's will have 2 separate positive cables. If this is the case, the cable without the bolt will have a metal spacer inside the boot that can be removed for cleaning. The bolts come in 2 sizes. Short for one cable, Long for two cables.

While driving, all lights and power go off and engine dies--car will restart after sitting for a few minutes

It sounds like a loose battery connection. Check for loose cables and clean the battery posts and terminals. If the battery looks like the sides are bulging out then you might want to replace the battery.

Engine wont turn over

Check fusible links and the battery for damage.

Too many variables and more information needed. Do your lights come on but dim when you turn the key? That could indicate a dead battery. If it tries to crank but clicks it could be a starter or solenoid proble. Chect the battery cables to make sure they are secure and clean. Remove the cables and use a battery terminal cleaner brush (wear goggles) and make sure the connection is secure. Otherwise there could be engine problems or other electrical problems.

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.

Bonneville wont start

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.

1995 pontiac bonneville will not start

Is there corrosion on the battery cables under the insulation. There may be a smaller + battery wire going from the battery to the fuse block. Same for the ground. Are these cables clean and secure. If so start checking fuses and voltage.
