Cables kept falling off while driving and I thought that causes alternator problems but replaced cables to reach for top post ? ( backwards) after that new battery then jump nothing but guys said starter smoked a little( starter was sticking before that) I'm now hum jumper cables reversed? Resistors in bypass to strong (bypassed cheap car without key) NOT STOLEN 98 Bonneville for Christ's sake. Now resistors redone by someone else he said wrong resistance but I'm thinking how when it Wouldn't have bypassed vats for new ignition in first place of it was but I read it can be a certain % below or above and still work? So of it was say 19% higher then actual resistance would that effect charging system drain battery and screw up either alternator starter relay solenoid maybe regulator (if there is one ) so no key to measure chip guy lost the resistors that started car in first place and. Says he's got new one hooked up but never shows to finish it and says he can start it but has to use something and never said what ( screwdriver to solenoid???) and hasn't been back where can i start please daughter needs car pregnant has three year old and can't make it to the Dr. And I'm out of resources as far as mechanic and you guys are so informative I'm going to do it myself. (can't afford no show mechanics anymore)

After bypass couldn't get lights to go off when starting and starter would stick. So I figured it would go out (starter) but a few things happened it died but cables weren't staying on the battery (side post) someone tried to alter it to make am stay on made it worse. After it died someone else put. Cables that would reach top post on (only had top post battery) not a real smart fellow anyway. But good guy tried because pregnet daughter with my three y old gradson stranded. Then no charge call me I go jump it and another concerned person helps out with connecting cables as I start it nothing and I m not sure but something alarmed me and got out he said a little smoke came from starter. So I thought jumpercables wrong or the actual terminal cables mixed up???? But then maybe resistors a little to high?? Cause lights not going out prior??? So now another person whom I've paid few times worked on it and said starter I thought well replace be good?? Nope he cut resistors out lost am man I'm not a genius but I had someone else measure and install them cause he couldn't now back to one again I'm kinda broke pissed and stuck. Cause what's resistance? How do I know even trying all fifteen cause the starter ?solenoid? Altenator? Relay? Resistors? And I don't know where to begin but I'm trying to do it myself cause I've had bad experience s (boyfriend tried to surprise me with oil change 2015 subaru and drained tranny fluid instead fifteen $ quart cvt hundreds $ later still fucked up and on and on. Please help. Where do I start again did mention no key right

Drive to store and car wouldn't start jumped start and smoke from startervand nothing not even crank

The vats system was by passed. And charging system was up down. To start the starter was sticking the battery wouldn't start car got a jump and smoke came from starter but the car never turned over like no power at all someone said solenoid but I was thinking the resisters were messes up ( from bypass vats)

Hard shifting

I have a Pontiac Bonneville 2000 supercharged water pump went out so I have to replace it do I have to remote the motor to replace it

no radio,speedometer,heat,a/c,gauges work at all and were all working prior to mechanic putting in new fuel pump. the heads up speed works though

My bonneville starts to get a little too hot when it's idling (like sitting at a light or something) but once I start driving the temperature goes back down. what gives??? can anybody help me on this? drive perfectly fine besides that. just want to get it fixed.

Went out from work yesterday and car won't start! Everything else worked. Jumped it and started. Got home it starts , this morning it starts, get to work shut it off and it won't start, go out at lunch and it started right up. What is going on I've checked all the thing I could think of!

JUST replace a fuel pump.so #1,battery is dead.an have been for 2weeks. Got a charge,
Turn the key engine turn no gas is pumping,did it a couple of times.wen I turn the key I don't hear the fuel pump turning on.
#1,battery don't stay charged.#2,might have an electric problem? I need help.

I've had three cans of freon however you spell it put in and nothing checked fuses they are good went to woods battery they unplugged my negative on battery said it should reset I do not know what's wrong please help with answers thank you

A/C is charged but won't blow out cold air feels like the heater is stuck on an won't blow out the front only the floor an defrost

po440-po442

It was fine then outta nowhere it just wouldn't turn when i went to start.

Cold Engine surges at 1000- 2000 rpm and has rough idle till about 20 min., then it idles and runs normal. I unplugged the MAF sensor and the engine smoothed out and ran normal. Replaced MAF sensor with remanufactured MAF sensor ( not A/C Delco ) and the engine runs perfect. However, if I stop the car a few minutes and restart the warm engine, it surges badly, then stalls.Pretty much undriveable.

My heat and air barely work. The only time they do work is when I'm going more then 40 mph, and then they still don't blow enough to heat the whole car.

I passed everything on my emissions but my NOx was real high

Problem now for along period. Note battery will drain
if I leave it connected. don't know where to look for a short, or open. No codes read.

I have replaced the fuel filter,crank shaft sensor,coil pk, the cycl and/key. And the car will not start. it cranks but that's it. And the security light is on!!!! Please help this Greek Lady out!!!!
