Check wiring and see if power source is to wrong lead, usually the constant power wire would be wired to the clock or auto antenna. The poer source for turning the radio on should be wired to the power source that is tied to the ignition, so when you turn your key off the power will be off as well.

    I'll check that out but it seems odd that there would be a connection issue since this is the factory installed radio. I've made no changes. I did have an adapter for my ipad installed, but that was 18 months ago.

    The battery died from the radio being constantly on. I just jumped the car and let it run for 15 minutes. When I shut the car off the radio went off like it's supposed to. Any thoughts as to why that would be?

SOURCE: Changing blinker on 2007 Pontiac G6

It's a monster pain to get to them, but it's doable. Once you empty the trunk, you'll see 4 black knobs - approx 1.5 inches in diameter. You'll need to remove all of these (they just unscrew, but they are plastic, so be careful not to strip the threading) in order to access the rear light assembly.

They're in there snug, but once you find the appropriate sized socket (I wish I could recall well enough to tell you what size, b/c I remember that it WAS an odd size), you'll have to remove all 3 bolts and then push the whole assembly out from inside the trunk.

Once the assembly is out, you will see the rear of the sockets, which simply push and turn to get the lamps out of. As long as you have everything open, I suggest changing ALL of the lamps (brake, tail, and turn signal) on BOTH sides, since the lamp life for all of these is about the same and it's such a pain to get to them in the first place.

OMG. I replaced the battery in my 06 G6 and had the same problem. the windows would not roll up or down how they did before. I read the answers on here and it does work. Hold up the window switch for ten seconds and it resets. You will have to do it to each window. Worked great. Thanks

Have a 2007 pontiac g6 3.5L engine. Replaced water pump; very simple procedure . Drained system and all but now it won't take the normal amount of coolant . Just fills the expansion tank and no more ....


if you are sure there is enough prestone in the radiator,start the car and let it warm up till the thermostat opens and the fluid level drops,then continue to fill the bottle.most newer vehicles have a valve you can open called the bleeder which should be somewhere on top of the metal coolant lines above themostat level. hope this helps

My radio stays on when I shut off the car and it's draining my battery. Now the battery is total drained and won't charge with a jump.


Has it been recently fitted? Most stereos require a permanent 12 volt supply and a secondary one connected to the ignition. Perhaps these have been mixed around causing the stereo to remain on?

2006 G6 GT sedan, was parked a while and battery died. Replaced the battery and started engine no problem, ran for a half an hour. Next morning tried to start but wouldn't even turn over. Plenty of power...


YOU NEED AN AUTO ELECTRICIAN TO LOCATE THE BATTERY DRAIN & OR BAD CONNECTION . THE TRUNK LIGHT MAY BE STAYING ON WHEN THE TRUNK IS SHUT, ALSO THE ALTERNATOR CAN CHARGE THE BATTERY, WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING, BUT IF A DIODE IS BAD IT CAN DRAIN THE BATTERY WHEN THE ENGINE IS OFF
