I have a 1999 pontiac bonneville that starts,runs 1-2 seconds then quits and then there is no response when turnining on ignition switch to re start.All other electrical things operate!What could be my problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the car been stalling out?

No sir

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Bonneville yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes.I have not tried anything yet.Could it be the computer or fuel pump?

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

It's a possibility that it is the fuel pump...but i'm pretty confident that the problem is with the security system.

What would I need to do to repair this problem?
Pontiac Mechanic: Todd Audette, Pontiac Technician replied 7 months ago

Just so we're on the same page....when it dies and you try to restart does the engine turn over or nothing happens....and do the gauges and everything work when you put the key to the on position
