Hey guys 2005 G6 here. Yea pretty much as the title states.
Car was parked for a year, only started once every week or so, finally got it on the road and noticed this issue. Did not have this issue before I parked it.
Any ideas, help would be appreciated.
Thanks fellas!

Hello anyone alive out there? Did I post in the wrong section or something?
Cant seem to find any info on this other that 1-2 people saying its probably the radio itself. Cant find the actual issue or fix or any diagnosis steps.

No, you're fine. The lack of responses probably means it's not been a common problem others have experienced. (I haven't.) Though there are some very knowledgeable people here, sadly there are far fewer than in the "glory days" (years when the G6's were in production). I think it's the radio too and would opt for a replacement. That's not a plug and play thing as the replacement has to be programmed. These are common in wrecking yards now. If I could find a clean '08 with the input jack I'd pick it up for my car. Many seem to prefer aftermarket units. Sorry to not be much help.

Ah Thanks! Would an aftermarket radio also need to be programmed?
I have an aftermarket radio but I dont know what I need to install it.

The programming of OEM radios is for the security system which dealers can do, but aftermarkets shouldn't be an issue. If you want, type the keywords "aftermarket radio" in the search box at the top and you'll get several threads on the subject that might help.

I have an aftermarket radio that you can adjust volume individually for each source. I'm not familiar with the GM radios but perhaps they have a feature like that. The first thing I did, when I bought my used G6, was to get rid of my stock radio. It needed to be taken to a dealer's and have the radio reset for like $100. hahahahaha

Is this done by messing with the buttons? I have a button that says source but it doesnt seem to do anything. I thought it was to go from am to fm or to go from cd to radio but the band button does this stuff.
I briefly looked through the manual radio section and I didnt even see what the source button is for.
