Question about 2001 Pontiac Bonneville
The shift solenoids are located in the sidecover if the transmission. To get that cover off, the engine/trans/frame assembly needs to be lowered on the drivers side. To do that, special support fixtures must be used. Very big job.

Shift soles are in the inside of the tranny ,they are on the wet side because that is where the valves work.
you can read the Factory FSM

Your passenger side temperature door actuator is bad. You can access the actuator by removing the glove box & hush panel. The actuator is on the side of the HVAC box. If you can gain access to the actuator watch the center of the actuator as you change the temp on the control head, if the actuator does not move it is bad, if it does, the door inside the HVAC box is bad. Most likely its the actuator. If you remove the actuator & open it up you will most likely find the large center plastic gear is cracked all the way through. It is held in place by 2 or 3 7/32 screws. Once you replace it, disconnect your battery wait 30 seconds and reconnect it to reset the HVAC control head so it can relearn your actuator positions. It can take up to 5 minutes for the control head to go through it's relearn procedure. You can try resetting the actuator first , but make sure your radio is turned off before you disconnect the battery and if your luck, the actuator may not have any broken parts and the gears may just need to be freed up and lubed. Good luck friend and hope this helps.

The solenoids are under the side pan on the transmission on the drivers side. You will have to go through the drivers side fender well. Remove the wheel, brake caliper, spindle, take the rack and pinion loose, install engine support, place jack under left side (drivers side) of subframe, remove subframe mounting bolts, loosen (do not remove) right side subframe mounting bolts, lower left side of subframe 4 to 6 inchs, go to engine support and lower engine and transmission down just enough so that transmission side pan can be removed. Thanks and good luck with your repairs.

these motors have two carrier pulleys and oone tensioner. lookinjg at the motor from the rightside of car the belt goes as follaws: crank pully to super charger from the left. the right side goes up to the lower carrier which will have the flat of the belt riding on it. from there the belt routes to the upper carrier
[ loop it over so the grooves ride
] and then under the tensioner any questions contact email@example.com

Tips for a great answer:
The automatic transmission shift lock control switch
The brake to shift relay
The rear integration module (RIM)
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the brake to shift relay coil. When the RIM energizes the brake to shift relay, the brake to shift relay switch contacts close suppling battery voltage to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally --closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The permanently grounded solenoid is energized. This locks the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open. This causes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.
