electric steering part XXXIV
Once again I experienced a lock up right when I started my 05 G6 this morning. I live about a quarter mile from my dealership and I just drove it on in there and left it idling outside the service area.
Inside I was told that they actually have found a true fix for the steering issue. My gal at the Pontiac desk told me "GM has been absolutely no help with this whatsoever" and the fix came internally from the dealer. They actually had a guinea pig car -- an 05 G6 that belongs to the dealership's Finance Manager! He was having the same problem and, according to the woman, said he "put the iron fist down" to get a fix.
That happened a couple of months ago and so far the FM hasn't experienced another lock up -- which is promising since it was happening to him on a pretty regular basis.
The issue -- a sensor in the power assist unit. When I pick my car up and get the invoice, I'll post the part number for the sensor.
Until then I get to jam around town with my Hummer H3 loaner!
