Hello there folks!
New to this forum, but not new to automotive forums in general. Looks like a good group of people with a large collection of knowledge.
I am the proud owner of a "new to me" 2005 Bonnie SE. Its been around the block a time or two with 175,000 miles. Only paid $4900 for it, and it was owned by a local business man who put over 1000 miles a week on it. She still looks brand new, and only came with a few problems. I got this car for my fiance who previously owned a Grand Prix...and she LOVES it! She will love it even more once I get the gremlins sorted out.
I have already replaced the rear shocks with Monroe air ride shocks, and put new brakes on all four corners. Pretty easy work...all in all only took 3 hours from start to finish. The front struts are "ok" for now, but will be next on the list after I work out a couple more problems.
The problem I have posted here about is a lack of power windows/locks/mirror on all doors except the driver door. I have checked all fuses/etc. and found no problem. Also looked for corrosion in the joint under the driver seat, and checked grounds. I have on ongoing thread here looking for answers.
Another problem I noticed after the purchase is a slight shudder on the 1-2 shift at low throttle setting. Its REALLY slight...so slight, my fiance does not notice it. From what I have read I need to replace the 1-2 clutch pack. Is that the only fix? Would a shift kit help? Any transmission additives that might help? Thread started here for this issue.
Thanks in advance, and I look forward to contributing as much as I can. Always loved the GM3800, and look forward to owning one again.
