Question about 2007 Pontiac G5 Gt Coupe

1 Answer

Pontiac 2008 G5, battery just over year old, run car for an hour every other day to keep charged, frequently hard to start, clock resets, needs jumps, sometimes will start if it sits for 20 minutes. Was ok after the new battery (replaced too soon IMHO) now back to the same old same old. Think it might be a undocumented security feature, looking for ideas.

It is hard to confirm...as you are aware...your battery is draining when not running...First try turning off all power including the radio on your next shut off...If this does not work, The only drain is usually the starter has developed a short...replaced one...and fixed problem 100 %...(as long as everything else is properly shut down)...Hope this helps...nice car:)

I just replaced the engine in my pontiac g5 started it runs fine but battery goes dead... alternator and battery is good and grounds look good to me where could it be drag in power?


Connect a amp meter in series at the + terminal on the battery and note the drain. there should only be a small drain caused by the clock ECT, Check for a light staying on in the trunk or glove box. Are you sure the battery is holding a charge?. connect a volt meter across the battery terminals and start the engine. voltage should be around 14 volts if alternator is ok.

I own a 2009 Pontiac G5 My car starts fine but the battery light stays on and it stops running within 5 minutes. Could you please give me an idea on what could be wrong and when my car does start, wou


You need a new alternator , Check your amps coming out of the back of your altenator you will find it is not sending 14 volts when its running. The reason it starts and runs for a bit after it sits or charges is that the car is running on the battery if you keep this up you will not only need a new altenator but a new battery

My car battery is totally and completely dead on my G5 2008 Pontiac as the lights were left on overnight. There were zero indications or problems before. I tried to charge using cables and it was totally...


Have your battery tested / charged.
Totally dead battery may take some extra time to charge being hooked to cables.
When a battery is "hard discharged" as you described...sometimes they never recover and require replacement.

My steering column is locked and I cannot get the key to turn to start the car. I have a 2008 pontiac g5.


The battery dead? Remove the battery cables and wait and then see if the key will turn. If it will not remove the key ( will it come out?) the key can be the wrong one ( maybe) you can have a blown fuse. Any fuse so you need to check them all. If the key will turn with the battery disconnected then put the car in park and turn the key off and remove it from the car. with the window down and the doors all closed and the hod open reconnect the known good ( charged Battery) with the battery connected don't open the door but reach in and put the key in and start the car. the doors should lock when the engine starts. reach in and unlock the door and get in and close the door. then turn the car off and remove the key get out and close the door and lock it with the key. wait a minute and then unlock the door with the key get in and drive away like normal. do everything though or you'll unset the reset cycle. Make shure that the break lights work as they control the unlocking feature of the collum.
