The solenoids are under the side pan on the transmission on the drivers side. You will have to go through the drivers side fender well. Remove the wheel, brake caliper, spindle, take the rack and pinion loose, install engine support, place jack under left side (drivers side) of subframe, remove subframe mounting bolts, loosen (do not remove) right side subframe mounting bolts, lower left side of subframe 4 to 6 inchs, go to engine support and lower engine and transmission down just enough so that transmission side pan can be removed. Thanks and good luck with your repairs.

2001 Pontiac Bonneville shift solenoid location

The shift solenoids are located in the sidecover if the transmission. To get that cover off, the engine/trans/frame assembly needs to be lowered on the drivers side. To do that, special support fixtures must be used. Very big job.

Changed transmission in 2001 bonneville and now it wont start.....why?? ****** came outta 1999 buick regal ... thought it was starter had it checked was told it was fine????? whats the deal.

if the codes on the transmissions tags id plates do not match which I am sure they don't they are not compadible to use. All GM transmissions are ran off the PCM and wrong year transmissions installed cause the biggest greif since they are electronic
Also the neutral saftey / starter switch on the trans has to be adjusted to work correctly.

Why wont me 1992 Pontiac Bonneville kick in gear

not enough details... I'll do my best guess though:
does the shifter move and the transmission not "catch"? If so -- you have either a broken wire leading into the transmission solenoid, bad solenoid in the transmission,. no oil, low oil,. or otherwise if the linkage from the shifter broke or in need of adjustment..
Best regards

Well you have to take transmission's valve body cover off and locate the torque converter clutch solenoid and take it off and change it if necessary. because without that solenoid your transmission will not survive for long. Good luck

Car won't drive forward or in reverse

this is the speed shift solenoid and a possible faulty transmission filter as well. the best thing for this issue is to pull the tranny and check for filter clogs and change the shift solenoid.
