Question about 1994 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

Fuel injector fuse blows randomly/only when it is started. its a 94 bonneville and i wonder what could be the solution ?

I recently changed my fuel pump, and had the suggestion by a couple of helpful people on fixya to check the wires to the pump to make sure they were not pinched and shorting. i did and they seem to be ok after routing them a bit better. it will still start up a few times or more,then blow the injector fuse again. is there a reason it only does it when started? it runs great and doesnt blow when driving thank goodness,any help is greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: black smoke from exhaust

hi nishga
im dave; hope i can help

First you need to determine if it is actually black smoke or if it is blue smoke. There are three colors of smoke that can come from the tailpipe. It is not white smoke obviously because that is easily differentiated from blue or black and generally indicates water or antifreeze leaking past the head gasket and into the compression area of the motor. White smoke is the steam of the water/antifreeze being emitted

Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer cars with fewer miles. The car has many seals, gaskets, and o-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plugs, it will cause a misfire(engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be completely burned. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich". Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a heavy fuel odour in the engine compartment. Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that is out of adjustment which is not likely unless you have installed an aftermarket carburated system on your non-carburated car, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a faulty engine computer or emissions sensor. If black smoke is present, check the engine oil to make sure excess fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Check the above mentioned systems and after detecting the trouble replace the faulty parts and then the engine oil and filter.

SOURCE: my brake light and interior dash lights keep

mcdevito75 here, I would try to isolate the problem with the fuse blowing, ---- sit in the car and step on the brake, without the car running see if the fuse blows, the just put the key to on not strat just on see if the fuse is blow, if it is you may have a problem under the dash, if not, now with the key just on no start, step on the brake see if that fuse is blow, if so you may have a problem at the brake light switch under the dash or at the brake lights themselves at the back of your car, a bad ground, loose or broken wire, inspect if you can. The hard or no starting after you drive for a while could be related or a problem with the ignition coils or ignition module. In any event have your local auto re[pair shop check these items out for you, a short could cause real problems in your car.

SOURCE: fuel pump fuse

short to ground likely on fuel pump circuit.. trace from tank up frame rail to PCM.. you probably pinced it though when you replaced pump so look carefully at wiring at between tank and body

I have a 1994 bonneville 3.8-i replaced my fuel pump recently, i keep having my fuel injector fuse blow, i took the injectors off and tested and cleaned them,the car seems to run real good


You have a short in the wiring to the fuel pump.. Go back and check all the wiring you touched. you may have not routed the wires at the tank correctly and they are shorted (crushed).. SINCE IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES.. I WOULD put in a new fuse turn on the key start the engine and look at the wires near the fuel pump and move them to see if you can create the short and find it. you will know when you find it because the engine will stop running as the fues blows. Don't take anything else apart till you cure the first problem. The very worst thing it can be is a short inside the tank at the pump. Post and let us know what you find.

2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi starts and immediately dies; will not run without foot constantly on gas pedal


Well pumping the pedal on a fuel injected car does nothing. If there are no trouble codes stored in the computer, look for excessive fuel from the injectors or the fuel pressure regulator. Or lack of air thru the idle air control valve.

I would check to see if you now have power to the fuel injectors. There could be high resistance in the fuel injectors, which may have caused the fuse to blow.
