Question about 2007 Pontiac G5 Gt Coupe

2007 Pontiac G5 will not start

So i was trying to jump my buddies car. Had it hooked up to the positive and grounded out where the manual said (don't like not having both terminal things there) and it didn't work. Went to drive away and noticed that i couldn't switch it from heat to defrost and none of the center consol was functional. I turned the car off hoping that the problem would just reset itself now the car will not turn back on.

This is why it's not a good idea to use jumper cables on a newer car or truck. Those power packs are the preferred way of jump starting a car nowadays. You probably blew out the body control module and power train module in yours with the voltage drop from the dead battery. You'll need to contact your insurance company and a competent mechanic to get this car running again. In the meantime, check the fuses under the hood to make sure none of these are blown. You might get lucky there, but this is serious. The electrical system is expensive to work on in a modern car because of the electronics.

What should the resistance be on a camshaft position actuator on a 2009 Pontiac G5 2.2L engine


Component Testing
  1. Measure the resistance of each CMP actuator solenoid valve assembly. Resistance should be between 8-12 ohms.
  2. Connect a jumper wire between the CMP actuator low reference circuit at the solenoid and a good ground. Connect a fused jumper wire to the CMP actuator high control circuit at the solenoid. Momentarily touch the fused jumper to B+. Observe the spool valve inside the CMP actuator. The spool valve should move from fully closed to fully opened position.

Can i jump start my 2008pontiac g5 from the front of the car


You should have a steel bolt coming up by the relay box that is your positive terminal for your battery, then connect to any unpainted metal to ground and presto there is a jumper spot .... or if you have a manual get it rolling put it into first when you have it rolling at a 5 km/h rough speed and release the clutch and start the car at the same time

Hi, I have a 2008 Pontiac G5 and I accidentally kept the lights on all day. Since I only have a positive (red) connection, I ground the negative connection to metal as well as the other car negative...


sounds like you are on the right track. Hook the jumper cables up to the dead car first. The red cable should go to the jumper terminal as you mentioned and a good place to hook up the black cable is the bolts on the strut tower.

then with the other car running hook up the red lead to the cars positive battery cable and then the negative to a good ground. Let the two cars sit for about 5 to ten minutes to give the dead battery a chance to charge.

Once the dead car is started let it idle with the lights turned off for at least 45 minute to an hour or drive it for the same amount of time with the light on (I assume you will be driving in the dark) or if its day time drive it for 30 to 40 minutes with the lights off. This should be enough time for the alternator to charge the dead battery.

Negative Post for Battery


For jumping connection it is under the hood, directly between the red capped post and the driver side. It says GRD on the post. Good luck.

Just encountered the same problem. Popped the clutch in first gear to kill the engine, but still cannot turn the car off.

Anyone have a clue as to why the ignition locked out?

I'm trying to jump a battery using a pontiac g5. where should i put the negative clamp of the jumper cable? the battery only has a positive post.


Place the negative cable on the frame of the car to ground it. It's best to do this even when there is a negative post present to protect the car and the alternator.

Fuses


You have a loose wire causing a short to ground somewhere. If it isn't a fuse in the block, it is the fuseable link on the battery.
