I have a 2001...

I have a 2001 pontiac bonneville and it stalled out while driving and won't restart the code reader reads MIL and I/M monitors .. What do I need to replace so I can get it back on the road

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great. If you share the code with me, I'll pass it along to the Pontiac Mechanic. He'll be able to diagnose your issue much faster with a code. Are you fixing your Bonneville yourself? What have you tried so far?

The code reader just read MIL misfire and I/M monitors no code number came up .. I had it towed to my house and was going to try and work on it myself.. I charged the battery because I ran the battery trying to restart.. Tries to start but won't turn over and run

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The battery is located under the rear seat .. Thought it may be a sensor was checking before I bought a fuel pump and see if that was the issue
