Question about Pontiac Bonneville
The car just stalls with no warning. All it does is crank & oddly, the power windows stop working. All other power options still work. I was told to put the key into the run position & leave it there for 15 min & the car should start. I tried it & it did start. Most of the time, when the car stalls, I'm not in a safe location to sit for 15 min. The crank sensor was already changed. If anybody has a clue why the car is doing this & if so, how to correct it, please let me know. Thank you very much!!
The key trick involves the security system. If the chip in the key fails, the security system will prevent the engine from starting.
Have you tried a different key ?

SOURCE: I have an electrical problem.
well the window and seat problem is probably a broken wire in the harness between the door and body open rubber boot and inspect and repair
the fuel i would start by checking for power at connector back by fuel tank you should have power with key on for about 10 seconds then turn key off and wait for a few seconds and try if you have power it is probably the fuel pump

It is located behind the **** of the starter on the front of the engine starting in '03 the 2.4 lt was changes the repair manual failed to update this..you may sneak it out with small fingers with out pulling out the starter.

SOURCE: crank position sensor
if you have the 2.4l it is located behind the timing belt on the crankshaft. possible causes include timing belt teeth seperated or balance belt teeth seperated and taking out the crankshaft sensor and sensor plate. this is no easy task for the home mechanic.

I would start with a fuel line psi test. then have your fuel acumulator.
check this out and see if it helps. It sounds like you are priming the psi up when cranking then it can go. but when you let it sit the pressure drops and has to build up again. I a not a VW person myself but love tinkering, so let me know how it goes.
