Since I'm definitely in the 101 learning stage, I hope you don't mind me re-opening this thread. It seems most relevant to my project and I hope to see more information added for us newbe's. I guess I should find an electrical schematic first for the 98 Bonneville SSEi. to see just what needs saved and what can be disconnected. ....or make a plan for a different control of engine and tranny. Please give me some ideas.

My project is to use the engine, tranny and some drive train for a mid engine VW bug. I will be using the front hubs and brakes from the Pontiac on all four wheels, so will have wheel sensors.

Is there a list of sensors or controls on the 3800 for us novice's.

I'm hoping the OP will go into a little more detail or reference where I can find the information, like control of the transmission and any communications with the engine.

You'll want to get the GM Service Manual for the donor car, or get access to an online version (All Data, etc.). OP used to be a very active member 10+ years ago, but may not check here anymore.

Unless you want to go through the trouble of adding ABS to cause yourself more work/cost, I'd stick with just the PCM & wiring to run the engine/trans. That's the typical path for swapping these engines into other platforms.

Good luck.
