...as far as your remote goes, try looking on E-Bay. about $25.00 will replace it, and it takes two minutes to reprogram.

Even with buying the remotes on line, it is still very expensive to get them programed at the dealer. When I asked why they charged so much for a 15 minute process, I was told that it cost $10K for the machine and if I wanted to buy the machine then I could do it my self.

Or program with laptop software, it still would cost you $500. It will then do more than just program fob,s.

What message do you get when you try to open the top. Usually that should indicate why the top will not retract. At least it is not the opposite problem which is what I had. But my dealership fixed it with one try. turned out to be the linkage in the roof came loose.
If you hear the roof try to open it is probably a linkage or alignment problem. If nothing happens then it is probably a sensor problem. If nothing happens though you should get a message in the message center.
send a message to socialmediagm.com and see if they can help. You would think that GM could diagnose the problem without just blindly replacing parts. I would expect that from the local garage mechanic but not from GM dealership service.

Ask lots of questions of the dealer you allow to work on your 2007 HTC G6 GT. I've taken mine to 3 different dealers, top is worse than ever. 4th dealer was recommended by GM (yes I contacted GM Customer Serivce and complained). Turns out that all techs are GM Certified, but very few of them have actually ever worked on the G6 HTC, which I found out was manufactured by Volvo.
Good luck with yours - looks like I'm going to get to pay over $1000 to get mine fixed because the other dealer thought it needed adjusting as part of regular maintenance. He asked to work on it, even tho I'd not had a problem, I let them practice on it anyway because they were my trusted local dealer. I've been doing business with them for 6 years and now they won't even talk to me anymore. good example of customer no serivce, and improper training certification by GM!
Anyway, sorry for the rant, but ask if the tech who is scheduled to work on your car has worked on any of them before. Certification doesn't mean squat.
#854 of 854 Top Rattles Fixed!
Apr 03, 2013 (6:13 pm)
I recently took my G6 to the former Pontiac dealership here, Devan Lowe, in Rainbow City, AL. I gave them TSB#06-08-59-003B and asked them to see if they could stop the rattles in my top. They had told me that their technician is one of the very best at it. I am very pleased to report that their work was successfull. I have not heard a rattle since I got it back.
