These problems all happened after the brake job? I am thinking they may have nicked one of the wires going to the wheel speed sensors when they had the brakes apart. I would think you would get an ABS light if that were the case. Maybe its just a coincidence and it is just the speed sensor coming out of the transmission. It needs to be put on a scanner to find the code that is giving the problem. AutoZone checks codes for free and then you will find out problem area. hope this helps and please rate my answer so I get points.

I have a 97 bonnaville. While the car is running, all the lights flicker and the engine surges in sync with the lights. I have also smelt something burning but the smell only lasts a few seconds. A month...

The engine in the Bonneville is known to have problems with the intake manifold, this can cause poor idle and sometimes a smell. The pipe from the EGR valve causes the plastic next to it to melt, sometimes coolant can get into the intake. This needs to be looked at as soon as possible, because water getting into the cylinders can cause major damage.

2005 town & country gauges stopped working. no brake lights,flashers,turn signal,no temp,fuel,speedometer or brake lights.head lights and tail lights come on and and everything else works.

Look for a bad ground...if you have a shop manual or sometimes the dealership will print you off that page, look for the major ground going to those devices.

I just changed my brakes yesterday and everything was fine, but today i drove the car for 80 miles and the abs lights came on.

check the fluid again,, if the brake pedal feels spongy at all,, you have air in the lines still, if so , bleed the brakes,, unhook the battery to clear the light, and try again

Your vehicle is what called an OBD 1 system everything after 96 is an OBD11 system thats why your haveing a problem getting codes read This sounds like a vacuum problem and its related to the brakes. You see the power brakes work on engine vacuumeven though the brakes them selves are hydriolc The big round part on the fire wall under the hood derictly in front of the steering wheel is called the vacuum booster control unit this assests the brakes to make it easyer for you to stop the car and is runs of the engine vacuum. If the hose going to this unit has a leak or the unit itself is looseing vacuum then it would make the engine run badly when you push on the brake pedel and when you let off it it would be fine You could check for a vacuum leak first but it seems like the booster control unit is leaking internialy . Its not that big or that expensive of a job to do it can in most cases be replaced with out removeing the brake lines just the master cylinder from the unit good luck

sputter, backfires, droping of rpm's usually coz of fuel stravation, check fuel pumps, fuel filter, cars with carbs checks fuel floats fuel line... if fuel line is blocked will result with the same symptoms... another angle you need to check is electrical... uneven or unstable electric supply will result to the same problem... if your encourtering bad smell, maybe you have an overheat engine, or oil level is very low... check brakes maybe you have a broken brake linnings { this just pops up to my head}...
