Welcome to the Forum. Your english is pretty good.

I can only answer a couple of your questions. Others with more information for an 89 will help when they see this.

For SSE, as far as we know there is no meaning for SSE. Just letters to designate the model.

I would think that all the disconnected sensors are causing the oil, abs, and service engine soon lights.

Compass and driver info may be something disconnected behind the gauge panel, I am not sure though.

Can you describe the item in the hood that is disconnected?

Sun window or sunroof may not be working if the motor is bad.

The valve in the trunk is for a compressor, but I am not sure how it works in an 89. Might have to have the key on for it to work.

There is no available supercharger for 1989. One member here has put a supercharged motor, transmission and wiring harness in from another year and another member added a turbocharger. I don't know of anyone that has put a supercharger on the 1989 motor, though.

On the inflator in the trunk, you dont need the key on for it to work.

And on the supercharger issue, we do have a member that put a blower on this years motor but the trans blew because it cant handle the extra power. (the buick reatta)

Si la luz del aceite está encendido, la razón má* probable es el remitente de la presión del aceite es culpable. Está situada sobre el filtro de aceite. Es un problema muy común en estos motores.

Por lo que va la luz del ABS, el sistema de frenos anticerrojos de los teves es algo no fiable. Mientras los frenos trabajen, debes ser autorización que lo deja solo a menos que lo encuentres absolutamente neccisary para hacer que sea operacional.

Para descubrir qué la luz del motor del servicio el intentar decirte, tú puede pasar a travé* de la sección del techinfo de este Web site y te dirá cómo puedes leer fácilmente los códigos.

¿El compá* te está diciendo cualquier cosa? ¿Por ejemplo para calibrar el sistema? ¿Has aumentado tus altavoces posteriores o llevas cualquier cosa grande y el metal en el tronco? Eso puede afectarlo.

En cuanto al sobrealimentador, el Bonneville no vino con esa opción hasta 1992 en el ajuste de SSEi.

No puedo ayudarte mucho con todo lo demá*, sino que espero que las ayudas tú.

Edit at WillWren'* request:
What I basically said was....

If the oil light is on, it is most likely the oil pressure sender. It is located on top of the oil filter and that it is a very common problem on these engines it seems.

The teves brake system is not very reliable and is also a very common problem on this year. It is just an abs problem, so as long as the brakes work, I imagine that unless you find it absolutely necessary to have the ABS then you should not worry about it all that much. Correct me if I'm wrong.

If you would like to find out what the service engine soon light is telling you, you can look in the tech info section of this website for information on how to retrieve the codes. You can then bring the codes back here and we will tell you what they mean.

What is the compass saying to you? Calibrate? If you have changed your rear speakers or have anything large and metal in the trunk, that can affect it by a large degree.

And as far as the supercharger goes, the Bonneville did not come with that option until 1992 and came standard on the SSEi trim of that year.

respecto a lo del aceite,
el remitente de la precion del aceite te refieres a la bomba del aceite?
que puedo hacer para arreglar esto? alguna recomendacion?
que tipo de aceite llevan estos motores?

en lo que al compas se refiere si esta calibrado, lo que pasa es que no enciende, bueno
a veces cuando hay mucha neblina y el tablero amanece humedo es cuando prende
pero nomas se quita y ya no funciona, lo mismo con el driver info


other tingh
the sunroof motor is good, just to elevate the crystal but to remove it dont work

the item in the hood is near of air filter behind the rigth ligth (view from the front)

I used a free online translator to interpret: http://ets.freetranslation.com/
It'* not the best...

In the first place kiero to thank wj for the atencion lent already I have read many of the themes of the forum but the truth do not I have so good groins as to understand them.

With respect to that business about the oil, the sender of the precion of the oil you refer to the bomb of the oil? That I can do to fix this? some recomendacion? That type of oil they carry these motors?

in which al compas refers if this calibrated, what happens is that does not light, good at times when there is a lot of fog and the panel wakes up humedo is when lights but nomas is removed and no longer functions, the same thing with the driver info

The above link will help in troubleshooting why the ABS light is on. On many vehicles the ABS light can be ignored, but an SSE with the Teves antilock system is not one of those. You should take the test and report back with the results and we can point you in the right direction in getting your ABS working properly.

Extended driving with the anti-lock light on may result in loss of boost assist.

It'* very well possible to mate a supercharger onto your SSE engine, but as noted, your transmission is going to fail sooner or later. It'* something you would need to weigh out...I began with the supercharger at 152k miles and it lasted until 172k. I used Mobil 1 synthetic oil in the transmission, but I've also done things like towing and plenty of full throttle take offs. The ultimate solution would be to swap in a manual, which I'm looking to do but don't have the money for right now.
