Try resetting the security system, follow this procedure.
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.

My 92 pontiac boneville has a new battery and it does not have electricity to start the car, beside that the horn stays beeping when I plug the cables to the battery...what can it be?.

Hi Juan, make sure the battery is fully charged before fitting it. If it goes flat befor putting it in the vehicle, take it back to the supplier and tell them its defective and claim a replacement on the guarantee. When you fit a good battery and the alarm begins deactivate it with your fob control. Regards John

Have to charge battery after it has sat for 6 plus hours. We have new alternater and battery. They work good. Any idea as to what could be draining battery? Checked all fuses.

its obvious there is a drain somewhere was this problem present before the battery and alternator change,if so suspect one of the new parts .but if not then start by removing the negative terminal and place a test light across the connection the test light might light up due to small power uses like clock in vehicle. but if its very bright then start pulling fuses until it goes out or dims down find what that fuse goes to and you have you culprit.

96 pontiac battery drains itself

Sounds like it IS the alternator. Batteries sometimes have a bit of a life of their own after sitting for awhile and will start a car. Once running, it will continue until the battery charge dies completely...especially when not using radio, A/C, lights etc... Also, it could be an alternator belt, (or surpentine belt) too lose on the alternator. Finally, check the battery for water level. If it is the type that requires water, sometimes people forget to fill it when sold.

If you have an alarm system in your vehicle ,it may have to be serviced. Also your vehicles car key may be dirty or damaged. Try using a different key. Some keys have chips installed in them.

Lost key for a 1995 pontiac boneville, how do i go about replacing that key. hubby said it has a computer chip in it and cannot go around to start auto PLEASAE HAELP ME :)

it does not have a chip in it, it does have a piece of resistive wire embedded in it near the base/key head, u need to measure the resistance of that wire on the spare key to get the right one, there are about 20 choices. let me know the resistance and i will look it up.
