Fuel. Then car died and wont start back. When cranking it seems to turn Over faster as if it jumped time.

If I turn it off it comes back fine. Occasionally it will do it again after restart but not always

In the 1986 bonneville it has no front or rear running lights and keeps blowing the fuse for it as soon as you turn on the lights. The headlights, turn signals, and four ways all work. I have checked the illumination wire like someone told me to and that is fine. Any help?

1988 pontiac bonneville fuel system problems

1988 Pontiac Bonneville won't stay running unless you pump the gas peddle

Heater blower only works on high.
All other settings blower does not work.
What are things I can check on.

Actually a 1986 Bonneville. How do I loosen and reinstall the steering column? After I repaired the ignition switch, it seemed a little loose.

I had my heater on high and when I went to turn the heater off, the "OFF" & "High/Low Blower Control" Settings did not work.
When I turned my engine off, the blower continued to blow on high.

I pulled out the fuses that mentioned anything about a/c under my steering wheel but it did not turn off the blower.

The only way to turn it off is to disconnect the battery.

What kind of repair am I look at here, Could this be a blower motor resistor issue?


Car is actually an 86 Parisienne,but no category here.Heater core is not clogged.Zero heat in car.Am I correct that the next possible faulty item is the vacuum controlled valve at one end of a heater hose?One hose hot, one hose cold. Thanks.

ok i have a 1989 pont. 6000 3.1L mfi and a few weeks ago it started acting like it was runing out of fuel but i had just put about 5 gallions in it so tested the fuel for water & found none so i replaced the fuel filter and it seemed like it was ok for about 100 miles so then it would start then it seemed the fuel pump was not running so i replaced it & it ran erraticlly so tested the tps it was good but i had one so i replaced it and the iac too then it would run but when i accelarated it would die so i replaced the fuel pressure regulator and it drove fine but the there was a leak at the regulator seals so i replaced them now it won't start any ideas?

I noticed the radio does not work after having the fabric on my headliner replaced.

When I push the power button on the radio, I hear the speakers giving out a low static noise as it normally does. The digital display doesn't display the clock or stations, it's just black. I tried replacing the fuse with the spare fuse(not sure if the spare fuse is working) but I received the same results. Is there any wiring above my headliner that could have caused my radio to go out?

Also, before I had the headliner fixed, I noticed the battery was not seated properly and moved it back into place. I'm not sure if there was a sudden power outage doing this, and I'm not sure if my radio has a locking feature when power is out. After looking into my manual, it doesn't mention any unlock codes for my radio with cassette player, but it does mention unlock codes for the radio with a cd player. Normally, when a radio is locked, it says 'loc' or something to indicate that the radio is locked.

Anyone know if there is a lock? I found a picture online of the radio:
How do I know if the fuse needs to be replaced, I can hear the speakers giving out distortion as I raise the volume. Should i purchase a new fuse?

Is there a wire that may have gotten disconnected when the headliner was replaced?

Should I purchase a nice cheap stereo receiver?

Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks.

Its actually a 1986 Pontiac Bonneville - When engaging the starter it sometimes sounds like your are grinding the gears. Sometimes it does it when you first try and other times it does it at the same time it actually starts and it is not from holding the key engaged too long. The starter has been replaced twice in the past 2 and a half years.
