Rough idle stalling when using power windows

Rough idle stalling when using power windows Pontiac Bonneville

If you own a Pontiac Bonneville and experience a rough idle stalling that seems to happen when you use your power windows, head right for the driver’s side kick panel. The fuel pump and power windows share a grounding point located under that kick panel. Shops report that these ground wires
corrode over time and the poor connection is made worse when you activate the power windows.

Remove the wires and sand the grounding metal clean. Remove any corrosion on the ground wires and coat both the metal and the wires with dielectric grease before re-assembly. That should fix the problem.
