While we're talking different manufacturers, there could be a similar design problem: 1990 through 1996 Ford Crown Victorias have an occasional problem with the transmission locking up after the car sits with hazard lights flashing. Seems the fuse that powers the flashers also powers the electric overdrive on the 'Police Interceptor' package Crown Vics. The fuse gets hot, burns out and, not only do the hazard lights stop flashing, the tranny won't come out of 'Park', until the fuse is replaced. With lots of patience (and a few foul words), you can at least get the car to a shop by doing the following:

- Turn off the engine. - With your foot on the brake, wiggle the ignition lock and the shift lever at the same time, until you get the selector into 'Neutral'. - The car should start in 'Neutral' and then you can shift into whatever gear you need (Not 'Park'!)to drive it to a shop.

What causes the transmission in a 1993 Pontiac Bonneville to feel like it is not engaged during a quick takeoff from dead stop?

I had this problem with my 1994 Bonneville SE. would try checking the transmission fluid level(that was the problem with mine). If the transmission fluid level is where it's supposed to be then it could be that the transmission is going out or you may need to check the torque converter. I think that can also cause the problem.

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.

Would vacuum leak cause automatic transmission to slip on 98 Pontiac Grandam?

I don't think so. The automatic transmission is controlled by engine speed, vehicle speed and throttle position. A large vacuum leak could effect throttle position, but it would cause other problems more noticable than the effect on transmission shifting. a vacuum leak mpuld not cause trasmission to slip but a band inside transmission would cause the problem

What would cause automatic transmission problem in a 1994 Pontiac Grand Am?

Automatic transmissions are complex components with hundreds of soft, hard, and electronic parts. Diagnosing your transmission issue is based on symptoms, road tests, inspection of the vehicle and or running diagnostic for OBDII error codes. Causes of problems can range from the need for new fluid, to indications an overhaul/rebuild/replacement may be soon required.

What would cause your 1994 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi squeak when its runningI have checked the belt and it isn't that.?

The squeak while running is a curious problem that I have run into also. As it turns out it is, in the case of my vehicle, caused by the air conditioning compressor clutch. As the vehicle sits, the electronic clutch plates gather oxidization - when the vehicle is run the oxidation causes the squeak, while the plates are running with each other. There is no known cure for this ailment, but it will not cause any failures.

What would cause the transmissions of my 1997 Bonneville to whine?

ok im not a 100% sure on this, but check your power steering fluid. on newer vihicles the power steering actually has something that affects the transmission. it could eventually cause it to go in to what is called a "lope mode". and i will pretty much just stay in second gear and wont shift out. Is your Bonneville supercharged? If the supercharger is going out it will also whine.
