I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 with 45xxx miles with the same issues with the brake lights coming on while driving and shutting off when pressing on the brake petal. I have replaced the brake switch, that worked for about 5 days! I had it towed to Dugan Chev. this morning.. Still waiting for them to look at it and tell me what they "think" is wrong with it.. I also called GM yesterday about this issue.. They gave me a case number and are following up with calls to me and to the dealer to tell me if this is a fix they will cover.. If they will not fix the car I will leave it at the lot! I'm not putting thousands into a car that when I bought it I was told that the lease would cover everything! I will update as I find out what they decide to do with the car.. Please if you have had troubles since the last posts on this matter post your issues and fixes.. I am also interested in getting a petition going to GM to get people with these troubles covered! It is a dangerous safelt issue and should be recalled!!

After filing a complaint with NHTSA, we (I credit a concerted effort through this forum) did get a recall for the 2005-2006 models, which is tantamount to them putting some gunk on a connector. See NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 09V036000. This was too late for my '06 model. After nearly getting rear-ended several times, we had to get some controller module that controlled the switch changed out and this did fix the problem. It sounds like the same problem. I don't think the recall posted until 2009. Good luck!

Have your issues been resolved? A petition is not the way to go to make GM aware of an issue. The best way to go about it is exactly as you did, call GM and set up a case for the issue. This is one way GM finds out about widespread problems is by customer calls into customer assistance. I look forward to your response!

I don't understand how GM could NOT be aware of all of these problems by now.

Just rotated my tires at 24 k, Pontiac has been doing them for free one year.
Pads and rotors are good, little wear, reset TPMS, easy to do.

Please don't be fooled by the "concerned" customer service rep. If there was really concern, perhaps they should convince the lackluster company they work for, to back the product they sell? I am incensed with GM and the pathetic lack of concern for their "valued customers"
Having tried to shop and buy North American made product, and owned or leased, 7 General Motors cars since 1999, I recently had two G-6 cars. A 2005 and 2008 Gt coupe. Same brake and rotor issues for both, every 12,000 km they would require service. Just in to have rotors machined today. Third time in 48,000 km. The OEM parts are garbage, suggest you by your own after market parts and keep the dealer out of it, since they are in bed with Corporate and cannot offer you the proper fix, which is don't buy a GM!!

I own a 2008 G6 and am having the exact same problem with my brake lights. I had them worked on 2 weeks ago and the same problem is happening again. I plan to contact GM to see what they plan to do about this issue. I work with a gentleman who's daughter also owns a G6 and is having this same problem as well. Will keep you updated...thanks.

It's usually the BCM connector, need to be serviced with dielectric grease. GM has a TSB on it.

I have had to take my 08 G6 into the shop twice with this problem, only helps for a couple of months then starts happening again. It's getting to be very frustrating at this point. I have to call again for the third time tomorrow because it started up a few days ago.

Believe it or not ,you can blame EPA, can no longer plate pins with cadmium. Why they can't come up with a something else, I have no idea.
