My guess its one of 2 things;
They've left a wire off that triggers the alternator
The alt drive belt is slipping

SOURCE: 1998 Pontiac transport van wont start:

Well you hit all the major ones, could be crank position sensor, ignition module, a bad coil pack (it should have 3), you need to check that you have spark to each plug while the engine is turning over (!!!be careful as this will hurt if you get shocked!!!), this will rule out coil packs. if you have no spark to any plug your looking at a bad ingnition module (which is what the coil packs bolt to). Hope this gets you on the right track!

99 grand am was driving home battery was about to die so i tried to make it home before it died


Can't say what the thud was..but it certainly sounds like your alternator is not charging your system.. When it isn't charging and the car is running off the battery the car will do some weird things as it loses its.battery power then just die....Auto zone should have found that and not just charge the battery..get yourself a small car charger at autozone $25 -40 or so and charge it again and have them make a full charging system check..good luck..

My 200 pontiac sunfire died and lost power on the freeway yesterday and refuses to start again makes a click sound and nothing


Possibly a loose or corroded connection somewhere, or bad alternator, not charging battery and caused system failure. Check for good clean connections at battery and starter. With a volt meter a battery should read 12.4 - 12.6 at rest, if you have a functioning alternator battery should read up to 13.5 to 14.5V .

1997 Pontiac Bonneville runs fine for hours, but then charge dies


Make sure the battery is good and fully charged . You will get the code if the battery is bad on the transmission.Check the ground wire from the engine to the frame of car. Must have a good one. Check to see if the battery cable is getting hot. The gauge inside the car could also be bad. A few things you should look at
