Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My 2005 GXP bonneville automatic level control/rear end is stuck in the air. It won't level down. I can hear it working to try level but, nothing happens. I checked my fuses in rear seat but notnot.under hood. ...any ideas as to what is causing this? And how to fix it? It looks VERY jacked up. I love this car and have never had problems and I am stumped. Thank you kindly!

SOURCE: My 98 Cadillac DeVille rear air suspension system

Common problem on all air suspension vehicles. It could be that there is a hairline crack in one of the shock bladders or that the pump is just too weak to pump up to it's intended pressure, a sensor or solenoid could also be bad.

Whenever I run into this problem I order a spring conversion kit for that vehicle, it is usually not worth spending $3000+ to repair the suspension.

www.Strutmasters.com sells the best kits, $327.00 for the rear. It also comes with a resistor so that your suspension light is not on.

check the ground on the passenger side of the rear window under the trim panel. That is what was wrong with mine.

SOURCE: 99 Deville rear air shocks not working.

This is an expensive repair sometimes and you may want to replace this system with inflatable air bags that fit inside the rear coil springs and then are inflated. I think they cost about $80.00 or $120.00 depending on the car.

SOURCE: Rear tailight (brake/running light) drivers side

You will need to check the contacts where the bulb inserts for arcing, causing a short. Test for power and ground at the conn. 2 b sure you have power there. If this is the case you will need to replace the light assembly.

Where is the heater blower resister located on a 2004 bonneville gxp


Why ? Does the blower work on high ? but no other speeds ! If it doesn't come on at any speed it's not the resistor . Does the vehicle have automatic climate control or manual ? Automatic doesn't have resistor , has a blower motor control processor . HVAC Blower Motor Circuit You need to test , not guess !

What are pros and cons of converting air to gas shocks? What parts are needed to make conversion?


It sounds like a mechanic has convinced you to replace an automatic leveling suspension instead of repairing it. DON'T. Your car will never ride correctly again
If your mechanic doesn't know how to repair the automatic leveling system, FIND ANOTHER MECHANIC WHO DOES. Best of luck to you.

Jeep wrangler 2005 automatic floor gear shifter is loose won't engage stuck in park


try pushing the knob down onto the shifter a little bit then try and shift. Sometimes if that knob is raised even a little bit it will be locked in park. Can't be 100% sure without seein it but worth a shot. Hope that helps you.

There is some kind of pump on the rear drivers side near the spare tier what is it and why is it makeing a loud vib sond?


Your vehicle is apparently equipped with Automatic Level Control Suspension (ALC). The thing you hear running in the rear driver's side is the air compressor that pumps up your air suspension. It is normal for this to run occasionally. Sometimes they seem a little loud. That's why they mounted it all the way in the rear and used rubber bushings to secure it...so you won't hear it running while you are driving. If it is running too much, it can be a sign that your air suspension components have air leaks. If it seems to run constantly, you need to get your suspension system checked because the pump will burn itself up trying to keep the leaky suspension inflated. VERY common as well as VERY EXPENSIVE to fix if not taken care of promptly.

If it just runs for a minute or two and shuts off and doesn't come back on for a long time, don't worry about it - this is normal. It SHOULD run for a while if you have the ignition key turned on and you load something heavy in the back of the vehicle.

How to replace the battery on a 2004 Pontiac Bonneville?


I have a 2005 Bonneville GXP. I would expect yours to be the same as mine.
My battery is located under the rear seat.
Pull the fron of the seat straight up. There are two clips holding it.
Underneath you'll see the battery and a fuse block.
The cable and holddown clamp is pretty obvious.
Make sure you get the right size battery.
Also loosen the ground strap and inspect for corrosion and retighten.zeevert_1.jpgzeevert_2.jpg

Oil pressure guage dropped to 5 after an oil change in my pontiac bonneville gxp 2005


Did it stay there? If so, put a pressure gauge on the engine, to check the actual pressure and then you will be able to tell if it is just the sending unit/pressure sw , that is off.

A Service Ride Control message came on my 2005 Chevy Tahoe with 28,000 miles- Dealer diagonosed it as the EBCM and charged me $750 - on the way home the message came back on - why?


Electronic Brake Control Module,
I really don't understand why they would change this module if your message stated,Ride control,
The ride control on the tahoes is an airbag (air powered shocks) leveling system. If I remember right, they are only in the rear. They are meant to raise or lower the rear end to be level with the front end. To do this, it has air shocks in the back, which are controlled by a computer and a compressor probably under the hood. Now, the light could mean many things, the most common being that an airbag broke, and air is leaking out. You may be able to hear a whine of the compressor trying to keep it filled. Less common, but possible are that the compressor is dead, or a line ruptured. The most common reason that the air shocks go out, are when the vehicle is lifted (tire change or such) without the leveling system being deactivated. Hope this helps. Good luck.

My gas gauge doesn't work in my 2003 bonneville. What can i do to fix this problem, along with my broken gas gauge my heater in my drivers side seat is no longer working, i would appreciate any help thanks...


It might not be anything wrong with your fuel sending unit. Keep an eye on your other gauges. I own a 2004 Pontiac Bonneville GXP. All of my gauges have started acting erratically. It started with my Temp. gauge, moved on to my speedometer, and now my oil pressure , fuel level and batty volt gauges are affected too. Its a very common problem with GM vehicles.
