Year and Trim: 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI (Stock)
I recently bought myself a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI. I've been having some electrical problems and cant find any solutions online. I'm not too good with Car Mechanics and was hoping somebody with more experience could help me turn this car into something I can be a little more proud to show off.

My 12V car ports in the front have stopped working, but the one in the back still works. I checked my mini-relay from the fuse box under the backseat (it said CIGAR on the fuse panel, and i checked it online. Also, the fuse box in front didnt have anything reading "12V", so i assumed there isnt a fuse for the 12V's under the hood), and replaced it, but it didnt fix my issue. Also, I had been told by the previous owner that it need 2 Oxygen Sensors. I haven't a clue how to locate and replace those. I was furthermore wondering how to change out the stock radio. Previous owner said it had to be programmed at a dealership? Any help would be much appreciated.

Can Not help with the O2 Sensors.

Most of the information you are looking for is in the audio forum of this website. I just completely redid my 02, following threads on here.

I replaced my cigar ports with USBs.

the dash and console are pretty easy to take apart, once that is done, you can get to what you need.

Welcome and good luck!

In the under-hood fuse block, check for C/LTR fuse which controls power for the cigarette lighter. The AUX PWR fuse is for the one on the back of the center console. These are 2 position fuses. One position is so they have power at all times, and the other has the power removed after 15 minutes.

Do you have a check engine light on where when the codes are checked, it shows bad O2 sensors? If not, did he say why felt they needed replacing? The front O2 sensor can be seen by looking between the firewall, and the engine, in the center. The rear is under a metal cover behind the catalytic converter. Generally, a special O2 sensor socket is used to remove them, but you may have luck with a box end wrench.

If the radio is replaced, a Tech 2 is needed to reprogram a new one.
