Customer Question
I was driving my...

I was driving my Pontiac 2009 G8 GT today when it started acting funny. It sounded like the electric locks were trying to lock and unlock by itself. Then, a bell came on and a big red X came up on the gauge saying "Contact Dealer." My husband ran a code reader on the vehicle just now. These 2 codes popped up. U0073 and P0700.

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

It just started late today.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your G8 yourself? What have you tried so far?

All we have done is run the code reader on it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No ma'am, that's it. Thank you!
