Question about 1992 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

Put key in ignition of 92 bonneville andthere is no power.......

I had pulled my 1992 bonneville into my driveway with the engine on..(i've had it for a year now no electric problems to speak of) I go back to start the car and when I put the key in I lose all power...but the battery has charge and a jump start does nothing. I was told I may have a bad ignition cylinder (where the car key goes). with the key in if I rotate it back to AUX i sometimes get a ''ding'' like the kind you get when the key is in but the door is open...but still no power or start...not even a turnover. I have checked all visible wires and fuses and all are good....

Ignition/steering wheel locked!!!

1998 models and newer use an Electronic Ignition System (EIS). If one of the keys works and the other one doesn't, then you have a failed key. If both keys do not work, then you most likely have a faulty EIS module. Only proper diagnosis will pinpoint the source.

For older models that use the key blade system, usually the lock cylinder binds and requires replacement. But, try a replacement key first just in case the blade is excessively worn.
