I successfully installed a new fuel pump and that didnt fix the problem, and it gets adequate spark, so the only other thing I can think of is the throttle, what do you think?

Make sure proper pressure is making it to the fuel rail and the injectors are getting power.

Would that indicate a bad icm if no power reached the injectors? And I checked fuel pressure again and the test valve shown no pressure but I disconnected the feed from it and fuel blasted out, but I wanted to hear your opinion before concluding anything, could that mean a bad regulator?

I think I have found the problem, the check engine light did not light up untill the car died again, so right then and there I did a diagnostic, trouble code 58 came up and it said fault with anti-theft system, can you tell me what to star looking at like the module itself or a relay?

You need a scan tool to read codes on that one if you dont live in california they might read the codes for free at the auto parts store. If not they sell basic code readers on amaon for under 30. At auto zone you can rent a fuel pressure gauge to check the fuel pressure. Then find the cap on the line going up to the fuel injector rail remove the cap screw the fuel pressure gauge on it. Then crank the engine for a like 5 seconds and see what the pressure reading is. To check for injector pluse you would get a noid light unplug each injector and plug the noid in where the injector went and crank the engine and watch for noid light to flash. That would mean you have a injector pluse. As far as the security if the light is on the instrument cluster solid or flashing that is disabling starting.

Electrical problem
1996 Pontiac Bonneville 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120K miles

My Engine cut out while driving I was rolling up the power windows when this happened. Now my power windows, locks, and fuel pump won't work. Also, the key in ignition and door open chime doesn't work either. The fuel pump usually can be heard turning on when the ignition is in the run position. The security light doesn't flash anymore either (has anti-theft deterant system) which shuts off the starter and fuel pump if someone tries to steal it. The alarm doesn't affect the windows and locks tho.
I have checked all the fuses every single one there all good. I have disconnected the battery twice to reset it didn't work. The keyless remote does lock and unlock the car, and the alarm will go off if triggered. I did put a new fuse in the power locks slot and for a split second the locks worked then stopped but fuse is not blown. I tried this once more and it didn't work again. It took me 4 yrs to save up the $1800 it cost me when I bought it in Feb. 2010. I'm a widowed mom of 3 kids 2 disabailed I can not go to a mechanic I make $75 a week. I got this car so I can get more work please help!

Sounds like your alternator might have gone bad the first thing I would do is make sure your battery cable's are clean and tight. If that's good then take your battery to have it charged and tested at the auto parts store. If the battery is good you can put it back in the car if not then you will have to get another battery and put the new one in. Then you can get the car started after that hopefully so you can test the alternator. Let me know what you find.

I have checked the battery and it was put in in Dec. 09 the voltage meter in the car says the battery is fully charged. While I was checking the fuses again the door locks worked again for a split second, but the fuel pump still didn't come on the power windows still won't roll up. The security light still doesn't flash the key in the ignition chime still doesn't work, everything else works. I don't know what could cause all those independant circuits to go at the same time. None of them are on the same relay. I'm very greatful that it didn't cut off while I was doing 60MPH with my kids in the car, I was just pulling in the driveway. Is there anything else I could try? Oh I almost forgot the check engine light had been going on and off since I bought the car. I read the manual and it said it could be the gas cap after using new fuel, so I would undo and retighten the gas cap and the light would go out for a little while could that have something to do with it? Thank You for your response, and I'm sorry it took so long to reply my internet got turned off for lack of payment.

Yes the starter does turn over but the car does start it sounds like it wants to start it just doesn't kick on. I do not have a multimeter, how much would one aprox. Cost? Before this happened you could hear the fuel pump go on when the key was in the run position it would make a "enup" sound then I would start it but that sound doesn't happen anymore. I really need my car, I just found out I have Cervical Cancer and need transportation to get back and forth to doctors. My kids already lost thier father I don't want them to lose me too.

For a a cheap one there 20 and under. Does all your dash light's come on when your turn the key on. Let's do this go to auto zone and rent there fuel pressure test kit it come's with a fuel pressure gauge and a multimeter that way we can test your fuel pressure and other thing's. Also rent a scan tool so we can see what code's you have.

Engine suddenly shuts off while driving and the windows won't function. After car sits for about five minutes, everything works as normal. A short time later the same thing happens. I got a tune up and changed the fuel filter (twice) and that worked for about two weeks. Now the same cycle has started again. Can you help me?

You may have an intermittent problem with the ignition switch? The voltage to the power window circuit breaker circuit, goes hot when you turn on the key. When the problem occurs pull the breaker, use voltage tester on the circuit. If no voltage, I'd check circuits to and from the ignition switch.
