2000 Pontiac Bonneville SLE from North America
This car has been a complete headache
I have never known how strange a car could be. First, I experienced problems with the speedometer. I would be driving 35 mph and the speedometer would suddenly indicate I was doing 80 mph. After a couple of months of hearing from the repair guys that they couldn't find anything wrong, the problem corrected it self only to start again 6 months later.
Second, the car would shut off in the middle of driving. The car would only start back up once it had set for about 30 minutes. to an hour. My door locks, and controls for the windows stop working.
One of the mechanics in the automotive shops in my neighborhood thought I was either crazy or was coming on to him. My car stopped on me 4 days in a row. I would either walk down to the shop or call them. When they would arrive to my car, it would start up. Since the car started up, they were unable to tell me what if anything was wrong with the car.
I have spent a lot of money on just trying to find out what is wrong with this car. I know I can't be the only person experiencing these types of problem with the 2000 Pontiac Bonneville.
The car would be nice if it ran correctly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My 1999 Bonneville shuts off while I'm driving also. I was wondering if you ever figured out what the problem was. It does it every time I drive it.

Could possibly be your ignition.

I also had a similar stalling problem with my 2001 Bonneville SLE. I would be driving the car and it would just quit. Also I had noticed that the tachometer would mysteriously drop to zero while the car was running. I was able to restart the car after numerous tries, but the problem persisted.
My mechanic tried replacing the control module under the coil packs, but again the problem returned. After keeping the car for a few weeks he was able to find the problem. It ended up being the crankcase position sensor. It has been about a year now. I have had zero problems with this stalling issue since the repair.
