Took it to my mechanic and it was the ground that is behind the emergency brake pedal this ground controls the power seats, windows and fuel pump he rewired with a new ground and no problems this guy worked as a service manger with gmc for 27 years and he know what he is doing.

I have an intermittant problem where the car stalls out while driving and the power windows stop working


Check the wire connection at the starter and make certain they are tight as the power supply to engine and accessories is picked up there at the solenoid. Check the engine ground strap as well.

My Bonneville will quit running while going down the road suddenly. The engine will loose power first and then quit. If I stop and then turn the key off and then try to start the car will restart and run...


This is most likely due to a failing antitheft system. Next time this happens, look for a light in the dash somewhere that says "security" or might be a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If you see this light, go to this link for help. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Power locks, mirrors and window problems


This is a typical GM problem, most likely are broken wires on the driver's side door. Every time the door is opened and closed, the wires running from the door to the car body flex. Over time these wires break and cause loss of use for power options like you have. It could just be coincidental that they broke in a rain.
There could be other electrical problems such as relays that have become wet and failed or a wide variety of other solutions. Electrical problems never have only one answer

Pontiac bonneville/electrical problem


After checking fuses your only sure hope is replacing the BCM module in the passenger compartment. (Body Control Module) . It runs all the electrical systems...basicly its the engine computers counterpart. Unfortunately mine cost 500 bucks, but it restored all the funky systems that were not functioning. ...cski
