Pontiac Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

ok, then the issue is not security related.

fasted test to see if you are missing fuel or spark is to see if the engine will start off of starter fluid, if it does then you need to check the fuel pump, you are not getting fuel, if it does not start then you either have a spark issue or there is a fuel issue with quality and the engine cannot fire,.

my vote is a fuel pump or connection to the fuel pump or you are out of fuel and the sensor is faulty.,

but until you see if the engine will run off of starter fluid we do not know what path to take.

hope this helps.

I will be here to help if you need more help,

dose not run on starter fluid tryed
Pontiac Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

ok, then we are missing spark.

so now it can be a cam sensor or crank sensor.

what else have you done?

its hard for anyone to help if you do not tell us everything you have done.

Good morning,

New expert here.

It looks like you might still need help getting your G6 going. To clarify, at this point it will crank, but won't start?
