We added freon to the
Are you sure that you didnt put the freon into the fuel line as there is a cap and fitting almost the same as the air conditioning. Check your oil level and check google if there is a low-oil cut off switch on that particular vehicle and if so bypass it to see if it will start. Sounds like an electrical issue more than anything perhaps wires burnt and touching something near the exhaust. Not sure if the two are related.

Two problems with '97 Pontiac Bonneville 1:
1- Retrieve engine faulty code from the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) with a scanner.
Check gauge alert means there is something wrong with one of the gauge. You need to fix it before going further.
1- Could be fuel tank gauge defect, wiring.
2- Fuel pump stopped working.
3- Bad fuel or water in-tank.
Hope it helps.

The heads up display on
chances are it is a loose connector behind the odometer cluster or the individual guages inside the cluster themselves have a loose connection or going bad.'This is a known issue in many models and not particular to yours but likely.

What causes a car to stumble and tries to quit but
Seems likely both codes are related and P0300 is firing issue not isolated to a given cylinder and P0171 likely due to a flow restriction. I would suggest having the jets removed and rekitted.. A more professional scanner may drill down the issue further, as it could be a failing fuel pump.

No cold air from air conditioner on 1997 Pontiac Bonneville
they saw you coming from way off
try and find an accredited ac specialist that will do a diagnosis for you to tell you what is wrong
flushing is well and good but unnecessary and once the system has been opened , it requires to be vacuumed down for around 1 hour to allow the moisture in the system to boil off
if that is not done then when the liquid gas is allowed to evaporate in the evaporator under the dash , ice forms in the TX valve and it stops the system from working

Where is the Theft deterrent module located on a 1997 Bonneville?
How did you determine that ? Have a factory scan tool an check data parameters ? Do electrical testing ? If you don't know where it is how could possiably test it . The most common problems with this anti-theft system is that the wires coming from the ignition switch break . There are contacts inside the ignition cylinder that read the resistance of the pellet on the key . If you look under the dash on or around the steering column ,find wiring for the ignition lock cylinder . Should have two white wires inside a yellow or orange sheathing . Check resistance of the pellet on the key ! Stick the key in the ignition ,now check resistance at the wires . If read no resistance , a wire is open . You can buy a resistor of same value an solder into the harness . Not the ignition cylinder side .

Fuse box diagram
Even though it sounds simple, there could be several things wrong here.
A person with a good electric meter can trace the source of the problem.
Perhaps the easiest is to go to the starter under the car, and unhook the wire that comes from the ignition switch, then test that wire with a meter and see if "juice" is coming that far when the ignition key is turned.
If not, you may need an ignition switch. ( Not a key switch, that is another item.)
If juice is present with the key turned to "start", you may have a bad solenoid.
There is also a way to by-pass the solenoid and see if the starter works without it, but that takes a really smart mechanic!
God bless your efforts.
