Default weird issues with 97 SE.....

Hello all....

I was driving down the road today when all of a sudden my Bonnie cuts off and wont start.

What happened was my wife was putting the pasanger side window down..... it went down about a half an inch, and then the car cuts off at 60 MPH. We coast to a stop and I notice that I still have electrical, and the car turns over but it'* either not getting fuel or spark. Also, the electric windows dont work, nor does the driver'* side electric seat. Things that do work - horn, locks, trunk release, starter, interior lights, inside fan, dash gauges, radio.

I've checked fuses on the driver'* side, passenger side, and under the hood and havent found anything bad. I've swapped the fuel pump relay with the fog light relay(numbers matched) and no luck there. I'm at a loss...... I would normally say via the power of deduction that it'* the fuel pump, but the seat and windows not working has me scratching my head.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks for your time.

Troy

Have you checked all your fuses.
I had a bad ignition fuse contact (the fuse was not burnt) that gave me similar symptoms.....but it wouldn't crank after it stalled.

Default that was the problem.......

we took out the connector plate in the wiring buss on the drivers side.... cleaned the contact that was corroded and like magic, it cranked up like nothing had ever happened.

Very strange!

A big thank you to this forum for helping me out..... and saving me some serious dinero at the same time.

Those ground bus connections have proven to be the source of many a problem on the 92-99'*. Glad to hear you resolved that one.

That is such a poor place to put connectors.
Shame on GM.
