Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

Open Question

2006 Pontiac G6 GT. The gear shift is very difficult and sometimes impossible to come out of park. This has been during cold weather only. The button will not go in all the way. After lots of attempts of pushing in the button and the outside air warming, it can be shifted. Also, there are times when the key will not come out of the ignition switch. We have 2 keys and it happens with both of them. At one point, we were able to push it in a little and then pull it out, but now that doesn't work either.

Hi dhansohm1,

open the bonnet (hood) and look for the transmission dip stick.... it's usually got a red top.... anyway the one that goes into the gear box.....Check the level ONLY with the engine running.... If needed, fill through the same tube....

SOURCE: engine light 2006 pontiac g6(reset)

first be sure that its the engine light and not the "service" light. the service light will usually illuminate if its time for an oil change. if its the service light ur owners manual should tell u how to reset it. if its ur engine light then try disconnecting ur positive battery cable for 1 minute. that should reset ur ecm and get rid of the engine light. if the engine light comes back on then have a diagnostic scan done to determine whats causing it.

SOURCE: transmission fluid for 2007 pontiac G6 GT

This car does not have a auto trans dipstick, the level can only be checked by the dealer, this is a growing trend that started with most German cars, the filter is inside the trans pan and only needs changing every 60,000 miles.

SOURCE: Key won't come out of the ignition.

yes, there is a shiftlock sensor, so you can only take the key out when in park.
Getting at it requires removal of the center console.
When you have it in park - give it a little tap forward before turning off the vehicle.

Why do I have to put gear in neutral when it won,t start in park?

The neutral switch is loose or needs adjusting. Sometimes you can hold the shift lever hard in the park position and it will start.
