Engine light on, remote start won't work

The engine light of my '96 G6 has been on for about two fill-ups. The car is running fine. Ever since the light has been on, the remote start won't work. It will start the auxiliary but not the engine. Any suggestions?

This is the beginning of a CPU burnout. i would drive it in for a diagnostic check up before it completely burns out.

I Have a 2006 pontiac G6 gt with the 3500 engine, The battery was removed positive side first and now after it was replaced the fuel pump isn't working, everything else seems fine but the pump...

You can't fix it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzzkill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. Sorry.

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 2006 Pontiac G6 won't start by remote. However, it will manually but a check engine light came on. What could be wrong with my car? Is it an expensive repair?

If you have a check engine light, the system is designed to prevent remote start or shut it down shortly after. Get the code checked and proceed from there.

Remote start will not let car start

The remote start won't keep the car from starting.

If you have a check engine light on currently, that will not allow the remote start to function at all.
