Default Month anniversary with the Bonneville

Well so far so good really enjoy driving it, still getting use to driving a car again last 5 vehicles were trucks or SUV'*, and well so far had no major problems.

*Did think I had a trans leak turned out the last owner put Trans fluid in the powersteering pump and over filled it. Hmm my dad call up the car on the GM computer and it had the powersteering pump replaced before by a GM dealership.

Anyway with almost 120,000 it runs great, good pickup, tight steering, great brakes and everything seems to work - (trunk button on the door sometimes give a little trouble but the button on the remote works everytime)

Glad to see she'* serving you well.

PM me if you're interested in buying a new button for your door. I have a brand new one in the GM packaging that I bought by mistake.

I think I know what he means, as I've had the same problem, and what an annoyance this is. If this doesn't pertain to his year, please correct me, but I thought mine was dead, as well, but, after a quick view of the owners manual, I found that you must turn the ignition to the "ON" position to use the button. Hope that helps!

I think the connections are just dirty, I unplugged it and plugged it back in once and it worked for awhile, I think I just need to take it off and clean the connection up some.

(oh forgot it did give me one quick scare, few days after I brought it home it would not start, quick look down and the clock reset - just went though dirty/loose battery cable with my Tahoe so knew what it was right away, took it off clean the connection and not once problem since.)

On my SSEi, I have a shut off switch in the trunk by the latch and pump that disables the door switch for the trunk. I have my door switch disabled for security reasons
