08 G6 Stalled at red light P0168
Hey all. Code in header is P1682 actually, wouldn't let me fix it after posting. Anyway, So the other morning on the way to work my G6 completely shut off while i was stopped at a red light and immediately "reduced engine power" popped up on the dic (duh). I tried to restart a few times and no luck. I scanned it with my bluedriver that i keep in the car and P1682, Control Module Performance - Ignition circuit, popped up. I then took the key out of the ignition for a couple minutes, tried to start it and it started up no problem. After a few days and a few stop start cycles the check engine light went away and it's been fine. I've owned this G6 nearly 10 years and that is the first time it has occurred. To my knowledge my the 08 G6 doesn't have any recalls for ignition issues, i know many cobalts and i believe malibus had recalls for faulty ignition switches. I did have the power steering recall serviced (and it still occurs once a year) and also the transmission gear position indicator. I looked through the lost list of service bulletins but don't see any related to the ignition switch. Anyone else have a similar issue? Don't want to just start throwing parts at it. Thanks
