I have a 1995 Bonneville that did the same thing. Your problem is you have a bad crank angle sensor. When you run your car on the computer it will not show up, but that's what your problem is. I took mine to the dealership and it was replace, cost about $230, and it has not happened since. Been about two years since replaced.
