The problem is your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. Cheap fix: ----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/ ----- Bypassing the key Never worry again fix: -------- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081 ----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites

Would a 1997 pontaic grand prix fuel pump fit a 2002 bonneville


I doubt that, but you could have a parts store check if they are the same part number. The parts department at the dealership could tell you as well.

The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

Security light flashing, does not turn over, do i replace ignition or ecm or both? Do i need new key if i replace ignition?


Chances are the wire going to ignition broke allowing the security to start flashing.this will keep the
car from cranking.On my 93 bonneville I went to Radioshack and got a 680 ohm resister,cut the 2 small
yellow wires on lower steering column under dash,soldered resister to the 2 yellow wires coming from harness.Cost of repair..$1. you can read the resistance on the key by using ohm meter on each
side of chip in key
