I have a 07 G6 V6 and i am having problems with my front end!! I keep taking my car to the local pontiac dealer only to have them turn or replace my rotars! I have had it up there 5 times for the same thing and now they say there is nothing wrong with it. I also have been experiencing some surging while driving especially about 50 anyone know what this may be from! Its driving me crazy and the people at the dealership prob think i am crazy!!

You probably just need to replace your main brake light bulbs on each side, i just had to do that. My first indication that my brake lights were going out was when my blinker started going faster, once that happened the bulb burnt out. Haven't had any problems since the bulb replacement.

Check out my 2005 Fusion Orange Metallic G6 GT at CarDomain.com

yes check the fuse box it gives a diagram for which you can check certain ones for the brake lights and do a bulb replacement that will help also

ok to get the tail light out you go through the trunk you pull the little cargo net things out and pull back the panels that block the light from inside the trunk and then you undo the three screws and pull the light out other than that there is nothing to it it might take you 10 min for one headlight

take the blame for what?

I know I think that Johnnypontiac knows I'm joking too.

But really, a hammer would work for the removal .

This does bring up the fact that a repair manual is needed. It seems that JohnnyPontiac and quite a few of us would benifit from this too.

tail light problems

I have had the same problem as the original poster with the rear brake lights and turn signals on my 2005 Pontiac G6 not working. I was also ticketed for this.

I changed the bulbs out and they still don't work. Odd. So now I'm thinking it's a blown fuse?

I've never changed a fuse on a car before, but I noticed the fuse box next to the battery. When I opened it I saw a chart showing which fuse does what, but it did not mention rear brake lights. Should I just change all of the fuses that include the word "light" in the description?

Any info/help is much appreciated.

Whoever said Pontiac should include a help/users manual is dead on.

It wouldn't hurt; At least you would know its not the fuses.
