Yup, Went to dealer today and got the too bad, your screwed speech. Its amazing this car came out in 2005 and still has a bunch of tsb's on it. At least the engine and transmission are fine, but the only reason gm has a 5yr 100k on the power train is because any car can go 100k miles now and not have a failure on those 2 components.

Not really on the 5 yr 100K. On the 2010 models a lot of items were dropped, the fuel system, wheel bearings, etc. Must have had too many problems.
The items listed are still covered for 07-09 , lot 2010 owners are going to get a surprise when they go for warranty on the items listed.

In December 2008 I lost power steering, right before getting on the highway to go to work, and took my car to the nearest dealer. At that time they replaced the entire steering column and re-programmed the module at a cost to me of over $600.00. On 2/15 just 3 days ago my power steering failed again! Same error codes, same parts failure, same module failure. If this situation was "fixed" I would not be posting this blog. The cost this time over $1,400.00! Instead of reprogramming the faulty module they replaced it. I guess you can only reprogram something once. Just this past summer I received a letter from Pontiac admitting they have a problem with their electronic power steering and upon review they would reimburse me for the first failure. Great, standing behind your product like all companies should do, however, for this 2nd failure I am pulling teeth to try to get re-imbursed. I will most certainly report this to NHTSA and any one who will listen including the NY State Attorney General and every media outlet available. After this car I will never buy a GM product again. Oh, did I mention the engine blew up 3 miles before the warranty was up? The rotors need to be replaced more than usual due to vibration, the radio only works when it wants to….I can go on but whats the point. After years of being a GM customer, my past 3 cars were GM; I guess I will be going to Honda.

Marona, What year is your G6 and how many miles did it have when the steering column was replaced?

i have the same issue what i have found works best is to unlock it with the key then ... be prepared to hurry the alarm will sound as soon as you open the door, but then put the key in the ignition and start the car then the alarm will stop it kind of embarrassing but at least you can still lock you car then

Hello friend. I saw your post a few minutes ago. I also have a 2005 g6 with the same issue. It is now 2011, so I was wondering if you ever found out what the problem was? My email is dayws.muohiofrontier.com. I was thinking about having it looked at by someone but im not really sure how to explain it. It turns over sometimes but doesn't catch right? Thats what mine does. It doesnt do it all the time though, and will do it cold or warm. please email me if you ever got it fixed buddy. Thanks, Steve.
