You need to replace the heater blower motor the motor brushes are worn out. The blower is under the dash on the drivers side and is a simple bolt in job once the lower dash panel is removed.

Your water pump is not circulating at lower speeds sometimes the fins get corroded off so at higher rpm you can get movement but the pump cant do its job at lower rpm. If this is the case you should notice engine temp going up more than normal at idle as well.

When you have this many problems in the electrical system guessing is not an option as to the cause. You MUST have the BMW dealer perform a diagnostic scan of the appropriate control modules for fault codes, based on the symptoms that would be the SRS (Air bag restraint system module) module and the BCM (Body control module) module. This system scan for fault codes is the very 1st thing that needs to be done to find the root cause of these faults.

  • If the car runs but won't move then you have a couple possibilities. Transmission or a CV joint isseue.
  • Here is the test.
  • If you put the vehicle in drive and the speedometer works as if you are actually driving the the CV joint is the problem.
  • The next test is the push test. If you can push the car while in gear the the issue is the transmission because it should stay put.
  • Check the transmission fluid and if it is at the level it should be the go off of the test suggestions I listed. If it is the transmission you need to take it to a transmission shop. If it is a CV joint you may be able to address this at home with proper knowledge and tools. One you figure out what it it then stop trying to drive it until the repair is complete.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

The first thought that comes to mind is a high pressure oil leak. The injectors have a snap ring on top that sometimes becomes detached and it will create these symptoms.

When you depress the brake it sends a signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) and the PCM increases the idle because it predicts you are about to shift into gear. If the truck has a high pressure leak inside the engine it will have a hard time building pressure initially and once the oil warms and thins out the High Pressure Oil Pump cannot hold the pressure and the oil leaks faster because it is thinner.

You may have a leak around the pump area which is under the turbo also. The IPR which is the regulator that controls the oil pressure may also be bad. It is directly under the turbo as well. The IPR is located under the turbo on the High Pressure Oil Pump cover. You stated the seals were leaking on the IPR itself? If the orings are damaged or if the screen in the end of it is collapsed or even punched through with a small hole it will need replaced. Screen damage is usually a sign of debris entering it from either dirt from a previous repair or something is coming apart inside.

Make certain you have clean oil and fuel filters. Yor may want to check fuel pressure as well. It should be somewhere around 55psi on acceleration.

Additionally, I suggest check for voltage at the connector on the fuel pump. The pump is mounted in the filter housing on the frame and the connector is at the front of it. The pink and black wire should have 12 volts with the key on for about 30 seconds. If the pump has voltage but is not running, then your pump has failed. If there is no voltage then check fuse 2.40 in the central junction box. This is the fuse that feeds the inertia switch through the fuel pump relay. I have included a fuse box layout and a wiring diagram (click over images for zoom)...



Additionally, will need to scanned the PCM to know if some fault code is stored there.

Keep us updated.

2006 G6 has a sound that like the engine is reving, but its not. The sound starts after about hitting about 25miles per hour.

check the front tire for scuffing ! if it pulls to the left it may need an alignment. the sound you hear is the front tires not going straight. just check it out ! could be wrong, but just see. good-day ! also check front suspension good.

Where is heater blower resistor located on 2006 g6 v6

It is located on the passenger side under the dash by the blower motor. This may not be a blower resistor on this vehicle but possibly an blower module. In either case location is the same.

Cant find the power steering for a 2006 pontiac g6 (v6 engine)?

In 2006 Pontiac put ELECTRIC power steering in the G6's.

Your looking under the hood in the right location its just under that. its all electrical. Must have been not such a good idea because they switched back to normal power steering in 2007.

Pontiac G6 2006 heater won't heat!

If you are somewhat mechanically inclined, here is an easy way to see if your heater core is actually plugged or not. It does require that the engine is up to operating temperature, which means you should also be careful not to get burned.

Find where the heater hoses actually pass into the car. They are usually found going into the car behind the engine at the firewall. There should be two black rubber hoses, about 5/8" diameter. With the engine running at operating temperature and the heater on, both hoses should feel pretty hot. If one hose is hot and the other feels cold or lukewarm, the heater core is most likely plugged.
