Pontiac bonneville. Wilk will not start

Asked by Jul 04, 2016 at 06:25 PM about the 1998 Pontiac Bonneville

Question type: General

I have a 98 pontiac bonneville that will not start.
When i turn the key over all the lights and
everything comes on but dont here the starter click
or anything. My wife list the keys one day and
thought she ciuld start it with a knife. She jammed
it into the ignition. Later i got home from work with
the spare and tried to start it and i had the problem
of it not starting. I know there is a sensor on the
key and i think she messed up something with
that. Is there any inexpensive fix to this.

Unfortunately no. You're going back to the GM dealer for a new lock cylinder and a reprogram. Sorry!! HTH. -Jim
