Best Answer

I had a 1988 Pontiac Sunbird GT with the 2.0L Turbocharged engine. I replaced the alternator every 26K mi. I believe this was due to the underhood temperatures caused by the turbo. I had the car for 123K mi. before I sold it. Still in great shape. Could be due to a short in the electrical system or a bad ground.

93 sunbird won't stay charged you put in a new alternator and battery?

I actually just fixed a probably just like this on my 88' sunbird, it ended up being a link fuse that comes off the starter solenoid (a 14 gauge one), it was broke (ie burnt up like a normal fuse would be when you, o' say hook the battery up wrong). After tearing the whole intake system apart and replacing that wire it worked great, just wish I would have found it before buying two batterys and three alternators. But basically just check your link fuses they should be close to the solenoid.


How do you replace the ecm on 1991 Pontiac sunbird?

The ECM is located behind the glove box. Remove the glove box door. You'll see the ECM. Disconnect the battery. Remove the three plugs on the bottom of the ECM. There are 4 nuts that hold the ECM in. They are 10mm. Remove them and pull out the ECM. Install is just the reversal. Remember to take your PROM from the old ECM and put it in the new one. New ones don't come with the PROM and it's highly probable that a used one will have the wrong PROM installed as each one is programmed to each specific car.
