Cruise Control & Manual shift stopped working & fix
Car: 2007 G6 GT. 3.5L, 4speed auto w/ manual shift.
Problem: My auto/manual shift stopped working and cruise control wouldn't engage Thursday (Happy Thanksgiving!).
I wasn't too worried because everything else worked fine - shifted into gear, no weird burning smells, etc. The steering wheel lights for cruise control lit up when pressed, but just would not turn on.
I checked all of the fuses (passenger side kick panel, engine bay and trunk) and all were fine. We certainly have a lot of fuses in different places for the same systems.
I drove it around for another day, just to see if it would magically fix itself, or if anything else would happen (it was impossible to get into the dealer or a mechanic), and nothing got worse, or fixed itself.
Solution: Today, I unhooked the battery for 15 minutes. Hooked it back up, cranked it up, shifted into Manual fine, drove it around and used cruise control (in the rain, not too smart!). The reset worked!
Just wanted to post it here, in case someone else has the same issues. I didn't see any other posts on it.
