Hello, all you have to do is turn the back of the light post and pill the lights out for both the fog lamps and the break lights. For the break lights, its less work to change.
To properly access the fog light the inner fender shield (plastic) has to loosenedbut not quite removed. The fog light is behind the panel that is the front piece of the shield. Bulb is an industry 880 halogen and twists out of the lamp housing. The fender shield is retained with clips that have a c…enter shaft for tension. (MORE)

I'd love to help but we don't know the year of the Car, interiors are different for different years. If you have an owners manual however it will tell you.

Answer : This light normally comes on for a problem in the ABS system. A scan of the computer will be needed to check for trouble codes to find out which system is having a problem.- TechJK . ---------------------------------------. The "service stability system" light kept coming on periodicall…y on my 2001 Aurora. A sensor needed replacing. I took it to a dealership and they took care of it. It wasn't expensive. (MORE)
Answer . It's a warning to indicate that the computer has stored a problem code. You can use a code scanner to find out what's wrong. They are available at most auto parts retailers for a reasonable price, and many such stores allow you to borrow or rent a code scanner.
Answer . \nDisconnect the positive battery cable from the battery, and hook it back up. This should reset the internal cpu, if the problem still exists the light will come back on after about 50-100 miles of drive time.
Answer . TRY DISCONNECT'IN BATTERY FOR A FEW MINUTES IF NOT AN HOUR OR SO.
Answer . \nYou have a bad relay. Your blinkers run on a different relay than you hazards do.
The fuse box and battery are under the back seat on a 2003 Pontiac Bonneville.
On the dash to the right of the DIC screen there are three buttons, Mode, Select, and Reset. First, push the Select button until the DIC shows the screen for Tire Pressure, once there hold the Reset button for five seconds. While holding the Reset button for five seconds the DIC screen will go from …Low Tire, to xxx, release the button and it should now show Normal. (MORE)
I also have a 1996 Pontiac Bonneville (se 3.8 liter engine). It also stalls often, although I have not completely fixed it. All I can do is offer what I have done (tried to do) to repair my problem and compare it to what you've done to yours. I had multiple mechanics look at my car , and offer their… advice, they all seem stumped and guess which is costly, and spent about 1500.00 on this problem and some others that could be "potential" problems. (lol, you know mechanics). I have had my complete positive and negative terminals replaced, which they were worn and cracked, but the voltage never fluctuated while driving , it would just konk out. I replaced the throttle position sensor (just on a hunch). The MASS Air flow sensor , to no avail. I had at sometime ago replaced the plennum, right after this is when my problem seemed to get noticeable. I replaced another sensor on the left of all the intake, I'm sorry at the moment I cannot seem to put my finger on the name. maybe crank shaft sensor? But since my car seemed to be running lean and that is the main cause for my problem, the sensor that seemed to make the most difference and also has stopped it from stalling by 80% is the Idle Air Control valve. the new o-ring that comes with it should fit snug if not it seems to suck more air. I still have not brought this car to the non-stalling car i have always dreamed about, but it's now really close . I really hope this information helps you as much as it has helped me. I would be really interested to know what you've done to fix the problem so far. I have heard people go so far as replacing the computer in them, and then it not helping. (MORE)
Answer . there are 2 ways, they changed methods around that year, turn the key on, engine off, and push the gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds and the light should flash or beep when reset, or key on engine off, open the fuse panel door on the left side of the dash, press the red re…set button once, the light will flash then hold it till the light goes out, if there is no red reset button in the fuse panel, its the first method, also consult your owners manual (MORE)
There is a fuse panel under the driver side part of the dash at the steering column. The fuse panel is or should be labeled which fuse goes where. There should be one that tells something about the dash lights and taillights.
That's depends on your tank size and how many mpg you get. To figure this wait until the light comes on, then fill up the car,see how much you get and subtract it from how much the tank holds. Then you will know how much gas is left and can figure how many miles once you know how many mpg you get.
Advance Auto has them for $18.95 or thereabouts. That's where I just got mine. 9-04-02
Check your owners manual to find the location of your fuses. Thereshould be a diagram showing where each fuse is located.
If the key for the Pontiac has a security chip in it as well,simply wait about fifteen minutes without doing anything and thenyour car should start. If the key does not have a security chip youmay have to remove the battery to reset the system.
i have a 2002 Bonneville also. and to replace the bulb you have 3 bolts inside the trunk you have to unscrew and then the whole fixture will pop out towards the outside and you will have easy access to the whole fixutre. Hope i explained it well enough. any questions, feel free to email me at ... be…email@example.com my name is brian (MORE)
Why would the abs traction control variable power steering and stability control service lights all come on at the same time on a 2004 Pontiac?
The problem could be that the Electronic Brake Control Module has gone bad. I have a 2001 Grand Prix GTP which the EBCM has gone bad, which in turn has killed my ABS and Traction Control, and has also affected the variable assist steering. As I understand it, the EBCM is tied into all the hydraulic …systems in the car, which is why the steering is affected. (MORE)
It means that one of your sensors related to the stability of the car is registering a problem. It could be anything from steering wheel position sensor to your anti-lock brake system, or even speed control sensor on any of your four hubs. You will have to take it to a qualified dealer with an appro…priate scanner to find out which unit it is, and then have it replaced. Good luck (MORE)
You have to remove the back black cover held on by 4 clips that look like luggage clips. Once you remove those you have to lift cover, that will give you acess to 3 nuts that relase back cover then you have access to bulb connections.
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
It is located in the fuse box under the plastic cover at the bottom of the dash. Make sure you don't have any burned out bulbs, as sometimes that will cause the others not to flash.
if you recently got your brake done, it may be done by wrong person and wrong shop!!!
I think the best answer is, YOU DONT. My warning message has come on at least 10 times since I bought the car a 2001 Cadillac Seville STS. It just shuts off and doesnt come back for months. Could be electrical problem, as my gas guage is never accurate and goes up and down on its own, had all instru…ments not work sometimes and then just start working after disconnecting the battery and reconnecting.

I had this problem on a 94 Bonneville after we had fixed the brakes. After I disconnected the battery and reconnected the light went off and the dinging stopped. Not sure if this was related or just coincidence.
'How do you change a fog light in a 1996 Pontiac Bonneville? ... How do you
" http://wiki.answers.com/Q/I have a 1999 pontiac bonneville and the monitor light system is on "
I think i saw one called "RR FOG" under the back seat, pull up from the front of the back seat on both sides and it comes up easy.
it could be a range of things. it could be overheating, gas gauge is low, or your rpms are running too high.
The best way that I figured out is to take the wheel off and take off the screws off that attach the fender well to front bumper (there is about 5 of them) and go through the fender well so then you will be behind the foglight. I think it beats taking all those screws or snaps along the bottom
First, you should get 4 clear glass bottles. . Second, attach 4 hoses to the bleeder screws of the wheel cylinders at the rear and bleeder screws on the front calipers.1 hose for each bleeder screw. . Third, open up the cover on the master cylinder and try not to get any dirt etc in the opening of… the master cylinder. . Forth,now try to open each bleeder screw starting at the 1 which is the farthest away from the master cylinder. When all bleeder screws are open make sure the little hoses are inside the glass jars or it will get all over the floor. . Fifth,Now you can watch the brake fluid level in the master cylinder and make sure that it does not run out. If it does you will introduce air into the braking system. dont worrie it doesnt drain very quick but keep the master cylinder full of new brake fluid. . Sixth, Now also keep an eye on those glass bottles and when you see clean brake fluid flowing form the hoses you will be pretty much done.REMEMBER TO DISPOSE OF THE OLD BRAKE FLUID IN THE PROPER MANNOR. It will take the rear brakes(wheel cylinders) a bit longer to gravity bleed so keep that in mind. . good luck. (MORE)
They won't work because the 15 amp fuse,located on the right side by the ecm,is blown or not making good contact.
I have pontiac grand am 2002. I reset alarm by leaving key fully on for 10 minutes until " security" light stops flashing. turn off key and wait for 15 seconds. Car will restart. Easy but annoying. Good luck
\n. \n. 2 options \n. 1.Have the car serviced by Fiat. \n. 2. Stick a bit of tape over it.
The most common way is to support the engine from above, drop the frame under the engine and trans-axle, remove the transmission and clutch. Replace flywheel and reassemble.
The computer has detected a malfunction in the stability system. You will need to have the system checked for trouble codes. You can then diagnose for the possible cause.
Wiring in the front by the suspension gets pinched. I have about 5 friends with these cars & my daughter has one. It fixed the problem
I have a supercharged 1995 Bonneville and this code has come up quite often. It is a Fuel Trim code. Your fuel is either burning rich or lean.
Disconnect positive side of battery for at least 5 minutes, worked for my 2002 Pontiac Bonneville. Dealer wanted $50.00 can you say rip-off!
It means there is a problem with your brake system. Can be it is just low of brake fluid or can mean something more serious. Do not ignore this warning.

On a 98 it is in the plentum on the passenger side under the map sensor. turn the map sensor 90 degrees and pull straight up.pcv should be underneath.
That's a very subjective question, that has lots of potential answers based on general reliability, comfort, performance, etc., but for simplicity's sake, I'll assume you're referring to general reliability and I'll limit my comments to the most recent generations (1992-1999 and 2000-2005) of the ca…r. Most of these cars are powered by GM's 3800 V6 engine, which is highly reliable. With good maintenance, these engines can easily run 200,000 miles or more. They're also very fuel efficient. Mine gets around 20 mpg in town and over 30 on the highway. The 3800 was one GM's 'bread and butter' engines from the late '80s until it was discontinued in 2009, so new and used replacement parts are plentiful. (MORE)
Sure it is. Remove the radio from the dash, loosen the tabs holding the faceplate to the box and the front will pull out. The bulb is on the left front, to remove the bulb you will twist/turn the bulb counter-clockwise I believe to lift it out. The new bulb will be set in and turned until it is seat…ed. (MORE)
