Asked by Jan 01, 2015 at 10:33 PM about the 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Attempting to hook up an aftermarket stereo while the car was started, wires touched and
the car stopped. Im aware ive blown a fuse or relay (strongly believe relay) but i cannot
find the problem. Everything works in the car but clicking noise when i try to start it. Its not
the battery or starter because the car worked fine until then.

Did you check battery voltage? Just for giggles might want to try and jump start it.

I tried jumping it and it didn't work. Just the same no crank.

Oh boy!! You may have fried the BCM (Body Control Module). The BCM works with the radio. It also receives the starter request signal from the ignition switch when you turn the key to the start position. If any of the other accessories (lights, locks, windows, horn, etc.) aren't working either I'd strongly suspect the BCM. The BCM controls those other accessories as well. HTH. -Jim

I suspected that as well but all my accessories work (light, locks, windows, etc) I really appreciate this was the best answer given so far (no offense) any other advice?

I just checked the diagram for the BCM location. Is there anything close to the BCM that will give a no crank no start symptom? Im not a bonneville expert at all. Kinda got pissed when i saw the BCM location...

Check for an ECM fuse. That'd do it as well. HTH. -Jim
