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.

I apologize for your inconvenience. Have you spoke with GM Customer Assistance? Has the dealer involved Technical Assistance? If not, I might ask them to do so. I look forward to your response.

#153 of 169 brakes locking?
Dec 29, 2011 (4:56 pm)
Hi, I have a 2006 Pontiac G6. At random times while driving i feel that i need to give my car more gas to go. When i take my foot off the gas my car will brake on its own and my brake pedal feels as though it is locked. This could last a few minutes to an hour. When this happens I pull over and turn the car off. When i turn it back on I hear a clank type noise up front by the by the odometer. Has anyone else heard of such a thing? This is getting very frustrating because i took the car to the dealership i bought the car from and they took it to 2 different places to be looked at but no one has ever heard of my problem plus my car wont act up for them. I have also taken my car to 2 places as well and still nothing. I was told to bring my car in while its acting up but my problem is that im never around a mechanic when it happens or they are closed. Im also afraid to drive when my brakes lock up.
A friend said maybe my calipers are sticking. Does this sound like it is something to look into? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you are having problems with your anti-lock brake system. I would start by having the brake fluid replaced, dealership can do it and cycle the anti-lock system to flush out the old fluid in that unit. Since having anti-lock brakes I do mine every 3 years, the fluid will absorb moisture.

I see that you've already been working with your dealership towards resolving the brake concern you're describing. If we can follow up on this for you, please send us an email with more information, including your name/username, contact information (phone and address, please), the last 8 digits of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your preferred dealership.

Thank you for replying! I apologize, but im not good with car terms at all! haha I did have my my brakes bled when this first starting happening. Is that they same thing as having my brake fluid replaced as you suggested? The dealership i got the car from has had my car all week... taking it everyone to see if it will cause them the same problems and no luck yet. I will call them in the morning and mention the anti lock system and see what they say. I appreciate you taking the time to reply.

Brake bleeding could be complete fluid replacement, if done by dealer they have the Tech 2 to do the ABS module.
