2006 G6 just wont't start

I'm not really what you would call a car guy but my girlfriend is having problems with her G6 and I want to help. She told me that the car completely shut down while on the road and she had to get it towed. She receive a jump but the car still didn't start. When she tries to start it the lights seem to come on and she can hear it attempting to start but the car just won't start. Could it be the alternator or the starter? If so how much would the cost to get fix?

Hello, what you most likely have is a primary ignition problem, check for spark. the way it sounds I'm sure you don't have any spark therefore the car will never start unless it's fixed properly. check the ignition module fuse if it's good check each coil pack for primary resistance usually the resistance should be between 1 and 3 ohms, yours may vary, if coil packs are ok it could be a wiring issue or a fried ignition module. good luck!

How to reset pontiac g6 computer

The battery cable trick is the oldest shitiest trick in the book it solves nothing but delaying a problem and erasing the ck engine light.... I've been up and down the Pontiac G6 from no start no crank issues to climate control to pc problems these cars have way to many issues that should have been recalled of course the reason these things weren't recalled is bc GM would owe some of you guys a new car. I can help with about any G6 problem but some things aren't worth fixing

2006 Pontiac G6 Transmission Jerking

I've had this same issue with my 2006 G6 on and off for about a year now. I've had three different places (one dealership and two service places) try to determine the problem and NONE of them have been able to get an Error Code when they ran a diagnostic.

The dealership replaced the battery, my one service guy did a complete tune up, changed the oil and air filter and checked the alternator. Again, he couldn't get an error code either.

I finally read on here that it could be the speed sensor, so I replaced that. It seemed to solve the problem for approx 6 months and now it's doing it again, only worse this time.

BTW - the speed sensor itself only costs about $40 - $50 bucks, so buy the part yourself (go to any auto parts store - but let them know that you need the speed sensor that goes by the transmission, not the one for the ABS) and have a local service mechanic replace it for you. It shouldn't take more than an hour TOPS, so don't let them rip you off on the labor just because you're supplying the part.

So after replacing the battery, spark plugs and speed sensor (not to mention maintenance related work - oil/air filter changes, etc) - I still have SOME sort of an electrical problem.
