Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

G6 4-cyl

  • 140,000 miles


I just bought this 2008 Pontiac G6 4cyl automatic for my daughter. Everything works fine except - both rear doors will not lock or unlock electrically and nothing works from a key fob and the dealer could not program it. The rear doors must be manually locked, or unlocked. Also, cannot lock or unlock rear doors from the front door switch. Both front doors do lock and unlock properly by the door switch and the park positions, but not the rear doors. The remote keyless entry will not operate anything and the dealer stated I need a new body control module to program the key fobs. The car has the remote keyless entry AP8 code and the dealer said a remote should work after programming, but they could not do it. I paid dealers $200 for scans only to find out the function is locked, they say. And now dealer wants another $550 for a new BCM and approx. $100 for a new remote key fob, and maybe about $300 or so more for both rear door lock latches replaced. I declined. Due to numerous complaints about this problem, it seems to me this should be a safety issue and a recall or a fix at no charge by GM.
