2008 Pontiac G6 Owner Comments

problem #3

Jul 072016

G6 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Pontiac G6. While driving at any speed, the brake lights remained illuminated regardless if the brake pedal was depressed or not. In addition, the traction light illuminated. The failures occurred continuously. The VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign number: 14V252000 (electrical system, electronic stability control, exterior lighting, service brakes, hydraulic, vehicle speed control). The approximate failure mileage was 76,000. Updated 08/30/16 the consumer stated the brake either illuminate all the time, or they do not illuminate at all. The electrical system would go haywire. The seat belt alarm sounded even when it was un-buckled, the traction control light illuminated and so did other random lights. Updated 10/26/16.

The service electronic speed control (ESC) and traction control light illuminates frequently. At low speed something happens that causes steering to be difficult. We have had the vehicle in for a recent recall that was suppose to fix this problem. The problem persists. The dealer wants approximately $350 to replace the electronic steering control modular. My research indicates that this item is a recall item but the dealer disagrees.
