Default New Member and New Bonny Owner!!

Hey Y'all,

My name is Jamie from the Southeast side of Chicago and I guess I'm
the newest member to this group. I need someone from this group to
let me know of the activities and/or perks that belonging to this
club entails. This is my first car (I have a 96 white Bonny SE !) and I
want to become comfortable and knowledgeable on all the advantages
and/or disadvantages from driving a Bonneville. Can anyone please get
back to me? I have some questions about the mechanical aspects of
this car such as: Why the car won't start? I was in it last night, I put the key in the ignition, then turned it. The car "came on" then just died on me, when I tried it again nothing happened. It wouldn't start or anything, even the "keyless entry" system on my keychain isn't working either. Is it the battery or the electrical system? Can someone please tell me what'* going on and how I can fix this? I would really appriecate if someone who'* experienced in the maintainence of Bonnevilles to contact me.
I must warn you that I'm not an expert on cars but I hope this club can teach me a thing or two plus in the process allow me to meet some great people. I look forward in hearing from this group!

Thanks, J.

First of all, welcome to the club. You're probably experiencing a VATS system (the little black thing on your key). This is a security feature that doesn't allow a non GM key start your car. If that chip is going bad, it won't start your car.

ssesc93 is in your neck of the woods. He has a local club that meets regularly on the south side. You should hook up with that club. They can give you some hands on help.


P.*. I am on the phone with him now. He knows about you and just sent you a message.
