Start by checking your fuel delivery.. by the age of the car you probably need to find and change the fuel filter at least.. maybe even fuel pump, but filters are cheap and pumps are a little more and a book for your car will help you find where its at if you can't by looking at it.. your pump may be inside of the gas tank.. your filter will be on a metal line underneath the car next to the frame

Radio lock on 1990 pontiac bonneville


There is a unlock code. If you call GM, as Pontiac is no longer made, and give them your VIN# they can give you the unlock code. It will be a number sequence. If GM cannot find it due to the age of the model your best bet is to buy an aftermarket radio. I hope this helps.

Sitting 5 years now no fuel pressure pump was less than 1 year old when stopped driving. 1990 bonneville sse


Pump is probably stuck. Pound on tank with a rubber hammer or wood bat (no metal) with the key on. Pump should make a humming noise for 1-5 seconds after key is turned to on if working. Next replace the filter.

Can you hear the fuel pump hum when you turn the key to on? If it will start on starting fluid, you definitely have a fuel problem. The pump being stuck or bad, or the filter being plugged, or vapor lock (try loosening the fuel cap, does it pull in air?)

My 1990 Pontiac Bonneville SSE won't start. The lights and radio turn on, but when I try to start it all I get is a bunch of clicks. I've checked the battery connection, which was good. I also tried...


it sounds as if your battery is defective. when you boost it, it starts off the other vehicles voltage. it stays running from the output of the alternator, but will not take any charge. have the battery load tested by a shop to confirm. good luck!
