Question about 1997 Pontiac Bonneville
Turned key. Nothing. Lights and Radio are fine. No "Clicking" from low charge, Nothing. Hooked up charger. Indicates battery good to go. '97 bonneville se 3.8 automatic no turbo
Let the car sit for about 5 minutes and then use your secondary (in this case my wife's copy of the) ignition key. Vrrrooooom!

Try two things first check the key if it has a chip that could be it,probably not reading the code.Or it is the ignition control module underneath the ignition coils.That piece can be easily removed and taken to an auto parts store and can be checked.Do not have to remove any plug wires as to not mess up the firing order...

Check the lever for putting the car in park/drive.
If the switch/sensor that detects where it is at (i.e. P, R, N, D, 2, 1) is broken or loose, it may think the car is not in Park and cars with automatic transmissions will not start unless they are in Park.
It might also be the starter is bad.
