Question 1995 Bonneville stalls (fixed)

Okay I'll try to explain this the best I can...... I have a 95 Bonneville 6 cylinder some times it runs great other times it will stall out on me at idle or at speed and start right back up other times it will not start back up till I leave it for a few hours if I try to start it I get a loud clicking coming from under the passenger side dash and the check engine flashes real fast I got under the hood and found the sound is a relay clicking real fast not sure what the relay is been trying to find a diagram of relays under hood but to no avail. it also has a chip in the key if that helps. if someone know where I can find the diagram for relays under hood let me know

almost forgot sometimes while driving down the road I hear 3 chimes from the dash like shutting off and right back on.

I would start with checking the battery cables. Take them off and clean them up. both ends of both cables.

I should of said I have cleaned cables checked all ground points for corrosion including the ones under the carpet by both doors and have changed the MAF Sensor.

Other than the clicking relay, it sounds like your crank shaft position sensor is failing. A starting system failure won't cause your car to stall once started.

You can get alot of info for free at autozone'* site, you will have to register and login, then do some trolling around, the wiring diagrams are there.

Does your car drop dead or act as if it was running out of fuel?

It will act like it is out of fuel and sometimes just shut down no warning I have noticed on a few occasions the speedometer will go all the way over (to 120mph or what ever it says)

no codes in it just flashes real fast while clicking and after doing somemore research I found a tsb on the tps which don't throw a code and that the crankshaft sensor won't throw a code either
