Question about 2008 Pontiac G5
The battery is dead for many reasons. But jump starting the car or getting the battery charged shold get the key out. The battery is hard to run down on the newest cars as the systems shut off with inactivity. The altenator may have stopped but you need to get going again first just to find the problem. Once the car is running cheak to see that all of the warning lights are out with the engine running, If the check engine light or battery light are on thwey will need further looking into. with the car now running you should be able to turn the car off and remove the key. Wight he key removed and the doors closed with the hood open disconnect the battery and claen the cable ends. They may look claean but clean them anyway as the connection problems are the most common problem. Wire brush everything connect the positive first and get it tight then the negative and get it tight too. If it just clicks or the lights come on low the battery is likly to havea problem and may need replaced or shop charged and tested before it's to be trusted again. Jump start or jump charge the battery as the key needs to be removed as the car is worked on. If it was running OK before this happened and the battery checks out with clean cables and the battery charged and it still doesn't run your peoblems go still deeper.
