Question about 2007 Pontiac G5 Gt Coupe

1 Answer

Interior lights (dash, console, door, and steering wheel) go out

At night, after I drive my 2007 Pontiac G5 for an hour or so, all the interior lights go out (dash, console, door, and steering wheel)...I mean it's TOTALLY dark in that car. The only way I can see the dash is by turning on the overhead light. I've had it in for service many times, but the dealer can't reproduce the problem, so they can't fix it under GM warranty. It's really dangerous and I hate to drive at night. I called GM and established a service record, so there's that, and the car is back in the shop, so we'll see what happens. Anyone else have this problem?

It sounds like your instrument panel cluster module is going out or your body control module.

How do you change the thermostat in a 2007 pontiac g5


The G 5 has electric power steering, there is no power steering fluid. Try getting your strut bearings replaced, they may be sized, making it hard to turn the wheel.

The pontiac G5 has a defect on some of them that need a new ignition switch. I just had to get mine replaced because mine did the exact same thing. If you remove the fuse it will not fix the problem!

I have a 2007 Pontiac G5 and the power steering started to fail gradually until now that it does it after driving the car on a stray line for a few seconds, if I turn the driving wheel left and right...


Keep in Mind that WITH NO POWER STEERING AT ALL The Faster you Drive the EASYER it is to Stear Lft & Rght. Having Said that If your Car is Hard to Steer While Sitting in PARK and Turning the Steering Wheel Left AND Right , This Sounds as if your Power Steering Pump Is Bad for1 and it May have Contaminated The STEERING RACK , this is A MAIN Component in the Steering System.

The power steering light is on in my 2007 Pontiac G5 Coupe


  • You have Electric Power Steering (EPS) not the traditional power steering pump. So there is no place to put power steering fluid in your vehicle.

  • Hope this helps.
