Ok the only thing i will sujest or actually there is two things,
you can either locate the horn circuit under the steering column and run a wire to have and external aftermarket push button swtch intalled or take the car to any auto repair they should be hable to fix, ask for an estimate, just tell them if not fix you won't pay, and if you want to locate the cable most of times it is black in color and must to be a thing wire like 16 gage wire, all waht you have to do is make sure the fuse for the horn is good and then get a little light tester, it is a little tool than looks like screw driver but has a bulb inside, and one end is very sharp and the other has a cable with a you have to atach the cable end to a good ground, and just keep testing each wire with the sharp end,
and when you hear the horn then atach a cable to that wire and the another wire to a good groud and the conect it to the universal push bottom swtch, and locate the switch at some plce you wold like to and that's it, good luck and let me know

How do I have someone from General motors to admit that there is a problem with the frame of my 1996 Pontiac rusting? Car only has 50000 miles?


Your car is 19 model years old. If you live in an area that has harsh winters where roads are heavily salted, or near the coasts where salt air can accelerate corrosion, what you are experiencing is not all that unusual. Undercarriage rust is a major problem in the "rust belt". 19 years is really good. Cars back in the 60's were rusted out in 10 years. You got almost twice that.

Summary:

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured January 3, 2007, to February 29, 2012, 2009-2012 Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured July 6, 2008, to February 29, 2012, 2007-2012 GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured September 15, 2006, to February 29, 2012, and 2007-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles manufactured August 17, 2006, to March 18, 2010. The affected vehicles, equipped with the power liftgate option, have gas struts that hold the power liftgate up when open. These struts may prematurely wear and the open liftgate may suddenly fall.

If the open liftgate unexpectedly falls, it may strike a person, increasing their risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the power liftgate actuator motor control unit so that the motor will prevent the rapid closing of the lift gate, free of charge. Owners were mailed interim notices on August 3, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782, and Saturn customer service at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 15240.

Was there a recall on 2008 pontiac g6 for transmission problems


Yes there was. Here is the exact recall and claim number. Also is a phone number you can call for further assistance.

2008 Pontiac G6 Power Train Recall 12V460000 NHTSA: Action Number: N/A Service Bulletin Number: 12V460000
  • Report Date:
    Sep 18, 2012
  • Component:
    Power Train
  • Potential Units Affected:
    426240
  • Manufacturer:
    General Motors Llc

Summary: General motors (gm) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 saturn aura and model year 2008-2010 chevrolet malibu and pontiac g6 vehicles, equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission. On these vehicles, the tabs on the transmission shift cable end may fracture and separate.

Consequence: If the tabs were to fracture and separate, the shift lever and the actual position of the transmission gear may not match. The driver would be able to move the shifter to 'park' and remove the ignition key, but the transmission gear may not be in 'park. ' the vehicle may not be able to be restarted and the vehicle could roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible crash without prior warning.

Remedy: Gm will notify owners, and dealers will install a retainer over the cable end or replace the shift cable as necessary. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, november 12, 2012. Owners may contact general motors at 1-800-521-7300.

Notes: General motors safety recall number 12106. Customers may contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153);

Models:
2004-2007 Saturn ION

Condition

Some customers of 2004-2007 model year Saturn ION vehicles, equipped with electric power steering, may experience a sudden loss of power steering assist, which could occur at any time while driving the vehicle. If the power steering assist is lost, a chime will be heard and the Message Center will display a "PWR STR" warning message. The vehicle can still be steered in a safe manner but will require greater driver effort at low vehicle speeds or when stopped. Typically, the next time the vehicle is started, the power steering assist will return and the "PWR STR" message would no longer be displayed.

Special Coverage Adjustment

This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 100,000 miles (160,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.

Retailers are to replace the power steering motor. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.

For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after July 21, 2010, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to July 21, 2010, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.

Vehicles Involved

Involved are certain 2004-2007 model year Saturn ION vehicles equipped with electric power steering and built within the following VIN breakpoints:

Important
Retailers are to confirm vehicle eligibility prior to beginning repairs by using the Investigate Vehicle History link on the Global Warranty Management application within GlobalConnect. Special Coverage Adjustments are displayed in the Applicable Warranties section.

* The amount identified in "Net Item" should represent the dollar amount reimbursed to the customer.

Customer Reimbursement - For US

All customer requests for reimbursement for previous repairs for the special coverage condition will be handled by the Customer Assistance Center, not by dealers.

A General Motors Customer Reimbursement Procedure and Claim Form is included with the customer letter.

Important
Refer to the GM Service Policies and Procedures Manual, section 6.1.12, for specific procedures regarding customer reimbursement and the form.

Customer Reimbursement - For Canada

Customer requests for reimbursement of previously paid repairs to correct the condition described in this bulletin are to be submitted to the dealer prior to or by August 31, 2011. Repairs must have occurred within the 10 years of the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, or 160,000km, whichever occurs first.

When a customer requests reimbursement, they must provide the following:

- Proof of ownership at time of repair.
- Original paid receipt confirming the amount of unreimbursed repair expense(s) (including Service Contract deductibles), a description of the repair, and the person or entity performing the repair.

If the work was done by someone other than a GM dealership, the amount of reimbursement will be limited to the amount that the repair would have cost GM to have it completed by a GM dealership.

Courtesy Transportation

The General Motors Courtesy Transportation program is intended to minimize customer inconvenience when a vehicle requires a repair that is covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranties. The availability of courtesy transportation to customers whose vehicles are within the warranty coverage period and involved in a product program is very important in maintaining customer satisfaction. Retailers are to ensure that these customers understand that shuttle service or some other form of courtesy transportation is available and will be provided at no charge. Dealers should refer to the General Motors Service Policies and Procedures Manual for Courtesy Transportation guidelines.

I believe my head gasket is blown, but all the mechanics i have been to don't want to do the job. it's a 2002 olds intrique. Is this a difficult job? Is it costly? Some say I might as well junk the...


That vehicle requires a lot of special tools and equipment to work on the engine. MOST mechanics do not want to spend the thousands of dollars in tool investments just so they can service a vehicle that has been discontinued and is no longer being manufactured. Your best bet would be to see if you can get a dealer to take it. The problem here is that a lot of dealers refuse to work on ANYTHING that is more than 10 years old or has higher than 100,000 miles on the clock. Also, many GM dealers are refusing to work on ANY Oldsmobiles that are out of warranty....NOT a good situation for those that spent MANY THOUSANDS of dollars BUYING the [blankety-blank] things.

- then they sit back and wonder what is WRONG with our economy....

Needs new motor problem was antifreeze leak---------how much would it cost to fix


You need to contact a chevrolet dealer. General Motors isssued a technical service bulletin regarding the lower intake gasket leaking antifreeze. This could be the reason you need a new motor. If it is then GM should be resonsible for replacing it. You can find the exact TSB as they are called, on the NHTSA websight. That's the National Transportation Safety Administration. By all rights, GM should have issued a recall on this problem because it is a problem tht covers several model years and cars that use the same engine.

I had 3 S-model and 1 L-model Saturn. Be prepared to replace window regulators, especially as they get to be about 10 years old, but there is nothing bad about that it is an electric motor with a lmited service life like all motors. Find yourself a new replacement regulator on ebay and pay a glass shop to install it. Run you about $150.00 total, if you would prefer a GM dealer will charge you about $500 for the same service.
