With my 2005 Bonneville SLE


Asked by Jul 07, 2013 at 02:54 PM about the 2005 Pontiac Bonneville SLE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed my alternator when it was not in normal operating parameters. Now, if I leave
my A/C on for the hotness of Summer. The car will not start. I am really trying to wrap my
head around this, but I do not have the slightest clue. Can you please offer any advice?

Will it crank over but not start or not crank over at all?

Does nothing until I turn off A/C


Not sure unless battery old and don't have enough cold cranking amps to turn it over with a/c clutch ingaged. Might want to check all connections to in sure they are clean and tight. Also check frame and body grounds. I will do some checking to see if other owners are having similar issues.
