Electrical Problem Perhaps??
Ok..I purchased a 1997 Bonnie SSE..I think its the 40th Anniversary Ed. I've had it since Jun 9th of this year. It has 156K on it, and recently out of nowhere..the gauges would freak in the car..I was driving on my way to work and the gauges all acted as if the car was turned off and then restarted, it did that three times..the air would start blowing air (meanwhile it wasn't even turned on) the cd player would reset, it was really weird.
A friend of mine told me to check the Ground wire from the battery..Then out of nowhere, one night after it rained really hard in my part of NY. The car wouldn't start..I mean NOTHING..it wouldn't turnover, it was just dead..the batterys brand new..I believe that time the lights did turn on..now if this happens. The car has no power what so ever. I mean the keyless entry won't work, the car won't start, no lights, nothing. It does this maybe 3-4 times a week. I found that in order to get the car started, i'd have to turn the key all the way as if to start it, and then move the ground wire of the battery until i heard the fuel pump on..then it would start.
I also have some kind of problem with the "ride control" both touring and performance are stuck on..I am at a lose to be completely honest with you with this vehicle. If anyone knows what might be wrong with the car please let me know..or honestly if anyone near me wants to buy the car that works too..I work and drive way too much to take time to actually rectify these problems. The cars in awesome condition this whole issue just sucks. Big Time.
