howdy from a Pontiac(G6 gt) NEWBIE

Yup, a newbie, Never owned a Pontiac or even a GM product! Worked on a number of OLD ones, but not this recent bunch. Anyway, I bought the wife an 08 G6 gt 3.5 engined top of the line model as a "mechanics special" ...needed a trannie and some other minor repairs. SOME of which are proving more troublesome than replacing the trans! Got some questions about the BCM and getting past dealers not wanting to reprogram it for replacement remote fobs...say they can't get comm with the BCM....At their labor rates....HELP please.

And as that I can't edit my posts yet...It's a 4 door loaded model.
I hope some good members can point me in the right directions about BCM problems, as the only things i'm having trouble with is the LF TPMS won't read and trying to get replacement remotes programmed as the car was bought with no remotes from the previous owner.

If only one tpms is not reading, almost certain you just need a new tire sensor. Batteries are good for 10yrs max, so if original, they are at the end of life.

Thanks for the welcome...I've got my 2 "quirk" problems resolved. For further explanation, read my thread on the forum page PROBLEMS & SOLUTIONS titled ... Dealer says NO COMM with BCM

Wife is now completely happy with her new ride!
