Question about 2009 Pontiac G3

1 Answer

All my brake lights on my 2009 Pontiac G3 Hatchback are not working. We've checked all the bulbs and they were all good. We actually just changed them less than a month ago when they blew out. We also checked the fuse for the brake lights and it was good. Any suggestions on what to do next? Trying not to have to take it to the dealership as we're not under warranty anymore.

SOURCE: Dashboard Lights/ radio lights

If you have the "twilight" sensor, while there is still a pontiac, call your local dealer and have them check your VIN against the recall list for your car for Headlight relay/twilight sensor. If it is not, then see if you can check out the the combination headlight switch. I had similar problems, switch shorted out (as in smoke coming out of dash and harness melting) Dealer claimed it was not part of recall, so I paid for the Dealer to fix it 3 times--last time I had Him disconnect the twilight sensor ring and shut it off, and havent had problem for 9 years. The switch design does not have enough clearance between paths, and possibly tied in with over currnt from the relay and a bit of dirt allows the switch to short out... last time dealer had to splice in a handfull of wires (Since a new harness is very expensive). Note: Am not a mechanic... this is just an educated guess.

Try looking inside where the hatch back is and see if there a panel where you can get to it. It should be easy. Pull out the plug, take out old part and replace new bulb. I know cause my car I have to get into the trunk and pull the plug out just renew bulb.

Horn is not working Where is the horn located on

Hello PS442.

If yours is the hatchback you need to remove the front grill. It is in behind it.
On a notchback model it is in behind the left headlight. It also will need to be removed for access to the horn.
I hope your repair goes well. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi ! I have a g3 and I would like to reset the sensor for the oil because I change my own oil at home. thank you

Read your owners manual. Turn engine off, then turn key to ON position. Depress brake three times slowly within five seconds and then turn key OFF. Then turn key ON. The oil change light should be reset. Who knows. The "GM" was made in Korea. Lots of luck. Now, if I could just figue out how to turn off the "blinking hold light". What a mess.

Brake lights not working, fuse is fine bulbs are good all else operates fine, signals, back-up lights, etc all good. 2007 Kia Rio 5 hatchback

Check the brake switch above and behind the brake pedal. It may have slipped out of position or could be faulty. It can be tested with a meter.

Mazda 3 tail light on, brake light not on

The bulb actually has two seperate elements in it.
That is why the tail light works fine.

If you take the bulb out you will see the seperate elements.
Change the bulb and it should be fine.
