GM Recalls '05-'06 Pontiac G6 Vehicles

February 11, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- General Motors is recalling 8,012 MY 2005-2006 Pontiac G6 vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website.

The brake lamps may not operate properly because of corrosion in a wiring connector, NHTSA said. Corrosion in the connector could cause the brake lamps to illuminate when the brake pedal has not depressed, or the lamps may not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed. In addition, the cruise control may not engage, and greater brake pedal force may be required to shift the vehicle out of park.

As a result of the corrosion problem, the brake lamps that are not operating properly may fail to warn a driver following the vehicle of the braking status, which could lead to a crash without prior warning, NHTSA said.

Dealers will resolve the problem by applying a dielectric lubricant to the connector to prevent corrosion. The service will be performed free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin on or before Feb. 17. Owners can contact Pontiac at (800) 620-7668.
