Question about 2004 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

The battery gauge on my 04 Bonneville moved far right.

What does it mean when the battery gauge goes all the way to the right? It doesn't do it consistently, and it doesn't seem to affect the way the car runs. Will it damage the car or cause it to eventually die if I continue to drive it like that?

Yes, have your alternator tested. If it's putting out too much voltage, it could damage a lot of things in your electronics, as well as your battery.

2000 Pontiac Bonneville Are the tiresensors programmed to be in one specific location such as drivers right, passengers right If I move rear left to front right will this freak the computer out


No it doesn't freak out the computer. But if you move a front tire to the rear and it goes low. The scanner will think it is the front. When you swap them they have t be programmed to where they sit. But it is no big deal. Put a tire gauge on them.

I have a 1998 Pontiac bonneville se with 218k miles on it. Tachometer works fine. Speedometer works fine. Odometer works fine. Gas gauge, oil pressure, battery, and temp gauges are all fine. Trip meter...


If I had a 1998 car with 218K miles on it and an unimportant thing like the trip meter didn't work I would put a piece of black tape over it and use a GPS as my trip meter.

My gas hand is going a little crazy, it will go to full and stay a while then move to empty, and I just put a new fuel pump and sender in it, what should I do now ?


I can only think of two possibilities:
1) The Ground Wire (goes from the sending unit in the fuel tank to the frame of the car) is not getting a good connection or
2) The fuel gauge in the dashboard is bad.

If your description means that the change in the gas gauge is random then check the ground wire. If you have a volt-ohm meter, try checking the resistance from the wire where it attaches to the sending unit, negative side. Remove wire from sending unit first. Make sure negative wire on V_O meter is connected to frame of car. Reading should be almost zero. Anything else and the wire you are testing does not have a good connection.
If your description means that you turn the car on and the gas gauge is reading full for awhile and then goes to empty, the gas gauge is bad.

Gas gauge


Guess I'd have to see your gauge to understand what you mean by it turns in a circle. If the gauge is bad you will have to remove the instrument cluster to access it.
If you ground the fuel guage sender wire from the tank's sender unit you can determine whether the gauge itself or the sender unit in the tank is bad.Here's how: Unplug connector at tank. Locate the right wire (gauge sender wire) in the connector and jumper it to a good ground. Observe dash gauge when you turn key to on. If the gauge is good it will move up to half or full when grounded. Then problem is likely the sender unit in tank. But if gauge doesn't move, then it's likely the gauge itself.
Good luck.

Is the tensioner pulley reverse threaded on a 2001 pontiac Bonneville?


See which way the belt moves on the pully. If it goes right. the bolt will loosen left. If it goes left, the bolt will loosen right. The idea is that the belt moves to the "tight" direction so it doesnt loosen the pully.

Oil gauge goes from 0 to120


Joe,
If the oil pump was doing it then the engine of your auto would have seized. And it has not so far. So that indicates that the gauge is faulty. Please replace it.

Fuel gauge seems to stick -- irratic readings


I've researched this problem thoroughly as all of my gauges on my '04 Bonneville GXP are producing erratic readings. The only two solutions are to replace the entire cluster which can cost in excess of $700 or replace the six "stepper" motors behind the cluster. Replacing them can only be done by deslodering the old ones and soldering in replacement ones.
