Yes, But I am going to take it to a different GM dealer that is closer to my home and I have a higher confidence level in.
Can you send me an email address and I will be happy to send you the VIN #?

Nope. car has been in the shop for over nine weeks!! I talk to GM at least a few times a week, along with the dealership that has my car. GM is providing a rental car, so I'm not out of pocket.
The dealership thinks they have fixed the problem, but that is not the first time I've been told that.
Buy American? lolol Not again, unless it is a Ford. Had my truck for five years, not a single issue!

My son has the car at college so I have not have a chance to get it to another GM dealer. I did stop by and talk to them and they believe they can fix the problem.

#46 of 79 Issue with left rear lights, key fob
Nov 05, 2011 (6:59 pm)
The left rear brake and turn signal lights have stopped working on my 07 G6. Additionally, the key fob has stopped working to unlock the doors. It still works to open the trunk and lock the doors, but when performing these functions, the left rear lights do not flash. I had the bulbs replaced, but still not working. Any ideas what the problem might be and how to correct it? Thanks in advance for any assistance offered.

I just picked my Pontiac up from Voss Chevrolet in Centerville, Ohio. They determined that the problem was in the body control module. It appears the module was staying on for 40 minutes each time the car was shut off. I also had to replace another battery. With the electrical issues we have had with this car, my guess is that the BCM was faulty from day 1. The dealer from where the car was purchased preferred to blame an aftermarket stereo add-on than looking for a problem. When I had it in to them in August of this year it appears they were looking up the wrong tree, and I wasted a few hundred dollars with them. It appears I would have spent hundreds of additional $$ if I would had left it with that dealer.
With the money I have spent on this car between this repair, 5 batteries, and having to replace all of the brakes & rotors at 44,000 miles, GM has some work to do to earn my future business.

Have they checked the body control module? I just picked up my car and replacing this has appeared to fix the problem.

We purchased my husband's 2005 G6 3 years ago from Carmax and it has been back to Carmax multiple times. Each time, I have complained about the electrical. The last 2 times I took it in I complained about the remote not working, the front driver turn signal not working, the air temperature not working. In August Carmax repaired the airbag switch, power steering, and struts. They sent it to the dealer for the cruise control. I told them at that time that there was a problem still with the electrical (the remote wasn't working, the driver front turn signal worked intermittently, and the air temp was wrong). Got it back and all they did regarding that complaint was change the bulb in the turn signal. It worked intermittently for the next 3 months. On Thanksgiving the alarm started going off every time the car was locked. I took it for inspection and it failed due to the turn signal and the fog lamps. The mechanic replaced the bulbs in the fog lamps for $200+ but said there was no power going to the turn signal. Since we bought the extended warranty from Carmax I took it back there. They said that they fixed the turn signal (broken wires behind the bumper cover) but had to send it to the dealer because they couldn't get a BCM reading and believed that was the problem with the alarm and air temp. There was some back and forth between Carmax and the dealer because the dealer wanted $1400 to rewire the electrical and the warranty didn't want to cover it because they said it was caused by an after market alarm (which was in the car when we bought it from Carmax). Today, two weeks later, I get the call to pick up the car. At first the air temp read correctly but then I turned on the turn signal and it wouldn't work. The bulb lights up but doesn't flash. Now the fog lamps are not working even though they were when I brought it in. Then suddenly the air temp started to malfunction again. The dealer replaced the outside air temperature sensor and the engine wiring harness. Carmax replaced the battery because they said it was bad when they got it back from the dealer. I left the car at Carmax so that the master mechanic can look at it again on Tuesday. Any ideas what could be wrong with this thing? It has been nothing but a nightmare since we bought it.
