Question about 2008 Pontiac G6

1 Answer

I have an issue with my 08 g6. I was driving in the slushy weather and my TC kept coming on and off. about 45 times within an 1 hr 25 min. All the lights dim the dash dims and after a while the car still had all the small electrical (dash, lights, radio, etc) but the engine was off. It would not start back up immediately but after I let it rest it started, but the second I go to give it gas it dies again. What's up? I was leaning toward alternator. I originally checked my fuses, but the majority of them look good. So am I looking at an altenator fix??

SOURCE: 2001 pontiac sunfire wont start

I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.

SOURCE: engine falls below 500rpm lights dim and engine stalls out

This seems like the reason why the idle is rough may be because the supercharger is bad.

SOURCE: 04 pontiac sunfire battery light and panel lights dim

sounds like your alternator. if you have a multimeter then turn on your car and turn your headlights on/ac and heater fan on high/wipers on and blinkers on. once they are all on hook the meter to the battery and if it reads less then 14 volts then the alt is bad. or you can just take it to a shop and have it tested.

SOURCE: car idles rough and stalls

Have you ever changed the fuel filter? If it's not that, and it's not a vacuum leak, it is probably your idle air control valve.

Will not start


Hey Sidney. On G6 it has a pass lock anti theft- in which your key is programmed into the computer. If the key is not programmed into the computer or ECM, then nothing at all, heres the steps, and where it says a new cut key on 1, ignore that, just use your key, and also you will need to take your g6 into the dealership and have them reflash the ECM, and program the VIN number into your new ECM, if not it might throw the check engine light.

1. Insert a new cut key in ignition and turn key to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds.

2. Within 45 seconds turn the key to OFF and then back to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds. 3. Within 45 seconds turn the key to OFF and then back to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds.

4. Turn key OFF then back ON. The key is now programmed.
Start vehicle to test key.
