Pontiac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
how many bolts are in the brace
can the battery still be out in if the ignition is still on. when i tried to start the car the key would not turn off the ignition.
will there be any problems if the key in the ignition is in the on position. because the battery was so dead it wouldn't let me turn it off. when the batery is changed
Yes you will have problems if the battery is totally dead. This is why I suggested using a settings saver to keep the computers happy.
Try stepping on the brake firmly and rocking the steering wheel as you cycle the key, don't force the key it either will go or it won't.
Let m know what happens
that did not work will there be a problem if you hook new battery up
You will need the power of the battery to have the key release, go ahead and connect it positive cable first then the negative. The key should turn then when you step on the brake.
Let me know if it works for you
Thank You George I may not know until tomorrow if it worked. being in the midwest our light has turn to dark. with out the battery out yet could you possibly get the code for the battery I know the manual said to use the same type of battery. it's an ACDelco maintainence free battery.
Yes, you have the Group 78 battery which is the standard GM side terminal battery. You don't have to have the Ac Delco battery but that is a good choice. An interstate battery would be another.
Please let me know how I can help
Glad to help and let me know if you have further questions when you get around to installing the battery.
