My 2002 Pontiac Bonneville won't start all I get is a clicking noise when I turn the key

First thing to do is to test the battery. Do this by turning on the lights or radio and then try starting it. If the battery is weak when you try to start it the lights will dim or go out completely. If so replace the battery. If the lights stay bright the problem is probably in the solenoid or starter itself. The clicking you are hearing should be the solenoid on the starter trying to engage and most likely doesn't have enough power in the battery to start the car. If you are not mechanical or don't have the right tools you will have to find someone to replace the starter and solenoid. If you end up only changing the battery make sure to hook battery jumper cables or a battery charger to the cable connections to retain power to the car when you remove the battery. This is so your radio doesn't have to be reset by entering the code to the radio. If you don't have a charger or jumper cables, then make sure you have the radio code to reset your radio before disconnecting your battery or you will be disappointed when the new battery goes in and your radio keeps asking for you to enter the code and it won't work.

I unplug my battery , and when I plug again my radio doesnt work , the radio ask me for a code what I do?

Each time you disconnect the battery, the computer loses all codes for security system, radio, etc. If you know the code for radio, enter it into radio using the number buttons. To prevent this again in the future, you should purchase a power cord for the computer. It has the lighter plug on one end and a plug you connect to the car's computer. Plug the lighter plug into any 12 volt plug (not the lighter socket in your car) can purchase a portable jump starter with the 12 volt socket. The purpose of this is to keep the car's computer "powered" while you disconnect the battery.

My starter is acting up. i am in the process of purchasing a new starter and will install it myself. just need how to install it in easy steps

disconnect the negative battery terminal. make sure the radio doesn't need a security code to work after power is removed. if it does, get the code. you can also use a memory saver. available at parts stores. it plugs into the power outlet/cigarette lighter and holds memory for the computer and the radio.

remove the elecrical connections from the stater, remove the bolts holding the starter. install in reverse order. easy as pie
you can go to and register your car. repair guides are available for free

Radio, lights work but only makes clicking sound will not start

the starter is bad or there is a bad connection. try cleaning the battery terminals. take caution when removing the terminals. the radio might have a security code that needs to be re-entered when power is removed. most likey though, the starter needs replacing.

Radio doesn't work after putting a starter on

to put a starter on you have to disconnect power and that can cause the stereo to require you to give a security code to start it. call the dealer near you and with the vehicle vin they can give you the code
