Question about 2008 Pontiac G6 GT

1 Answer

I have a 2008 Pontiac G6 GT. The left rear is making a loud squealing noise. It doesn't stop when you press the breaks. It only stops when the car is completely stopped. It started shortly after I changed the front pads and rotors. The check engine light and traction control light also started and stays on every sense I changed the front pads and rotors.

SOURCE: Check Traction Control warning light

I can't give you an explanation for why the car is telling you to check trac. control but i can try to give some help on maybe fixing it. Try - turning on the car, turn the traction control off, turn the car off, turn the car on. Then turn the traction control back on and push the system check button. That should i guess "reset" the trac control system.

Now the noise from the front right of the car is MOST LIKELY the air compressor pumping air into the bags. (i own a 97 Continental but i've never had a problem witht the trac control)

SOURCE: abs light stays on

I had this exact same problem, on a older bronco II. You need to get the ABS computer reset. You can either take it in or buy a computer your self. There are even packages that will allow you to use your own computer and just hook the car up to your lap top or desk top if you can get a cable long enough.

I never had mine done, because back then the computers were so expensive. I never caused a problem because it was only in the braking system. Now they are pretty cheap and there are a lot of other cool things you can do with them. You can reduce your gas requirements and set it for pulling, racing, and fuel efficency on the fly now. Just at the touch of a button.

SOURCE: abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

Brake Shoe Self-Over-Tightening?


Type of brake shoes there using, the more metallic compound on the shoe will make them Squeal and just takes time for the brake shoes and drums to wear there self to a point where they will not squeal any more. The high Metallic brake shoes will last longer but make more noise, I did a break up grade on my Jimmy with ceramic brake pads and vented rotors. At first before there were broken in, stopping distance was bad and brakes was loud, but now it's like dropping an anchor LOL. Keep me posted and give it a few miles of stop and go traffic.
