 Problem 1 approximately 3 months ago, my left headlight stopped working. replacing the lamp would seem to fix the problem for a few days, but it would then start and stop working intermittently, then go out altogether. the lamp was not the problem. i was able to resolve the problem on my own by splicing in a new lamp plug connector, after searching for the problem on the internet. it has worked without problems for the last couple months, but i can only hope that my fix has really addressed whatever the problem was. this problem is discussed at great length on internet forums, and clearly is common with this car. intermittent headlamps would certainly seem to me to be a safety issue worthy of a recall. problem 2 today, i noticed the cruise control would not engage. as i drove along, i tried tapping the brakes, and found the cruise would engage for a few seconds and then go off again. a second drive (at night) confirmed that the car's brake lights were coming on at random and staying on. tapping the brakes would make them go off, but they come on again a few seconds later. the car is not safely drivable in this condition, which is unresolved. again, a quick internet search revealed that this is another very common problem with this car. it also appears that a recall actually exists, but for only a tiny number of cars, when this clearly affects the entire model range. this car has only 82,000 miles and i can't drive it safely because none of the lights work correctly. gm should be forced to recall this model to fix the lighting problems.

 I owned my car a little over a year when the driver side headlight went out the first time. i have had to replace it numerous times over the years. in the past 4 months i had to replace the same headlight 3 times. the last time it burned out after one day. i called the dealer to see if there was a recall on the headlights and was told no. i have an appointment tohave the harnesses on the headlights replaced. the dealer said gm will only pay half after i said i went on line and found pages of similar complaints. there should be a recall on the headlights. i have spent quite a bit of money on bulbs and to have them replaced. now they want me to pay half of the repairs even though this is a common defect on the g6. i read that the 2010 models were changed.

 On 12/31/2011 i was pulled over for a burnt out headlight. upon replacing the bulb i noticed that the socket where the bulb plugs in was melted. i put a new bulb in and it worked for 3 months. when that went out in march of 2012 i replaced it again. now in august of 2012 that bulb burnt out. there is a connection to the melted harness as the bulb that burnt out was melted slightly where it made a connection to the socket. this is obviously an issue that goes well beyond my vehicle as a search on the internet shows other owners with the same issues. when the light bulb burns out at night it puts everyone at a safety risk which is not acceptable. gm needs to do something about this. *tr

 My driver side headlight was out. i replace the bulb from 2 different auto store and still not working. then my dad look at the connector look and seen that 1 of the wires was burned out. so i was told to take it to gmc and see if they can fix it since i had extended warranty. after telling service dept my issue and what i thought was wrong; i get hit with a $89 diagnosit fee that i had already had told them what was going on. they called and let me know that my connector was burned out and need to replace them in order the light to work and it wasn't covered thru my extened warranty so i had to pay $290 to get fix. after google this issue looks like this a on going issue for this vehicle that i think shoud be a recall before something else get shortgage due to burned out wiring. i don't have the vin# and mileage left paper work at home.

 The headlight (h11) on the passager side of my g6 would randomly stop working. we had changed the bulb once already and with further investigation we discovered the h11 wiring harness connector appeared to be melted. we then went to purchase a replacement the local auto parts stores were unable to assist us. we then went to our local gm service and the technician informed us that this h11 connector was a recall item on the arcadia and he had some on hand and sold us one. since this item is already a recall item on a different model he stated to hold on to the receipt incase it becomes a recall on our car. i paid nearly $40 to fix the passager side to ensure if the drivers side goes out i will have time to fix that to prevent no headlights at all. please consider making this a recall to ensure safe driving, i enjoy driving my g6.

 My brake lights stick or remain on even when they are not being pressed making it appear that im riding my brakes. i have been pulled over by the police once already. i have replaced the brake light switch twice and it works for a couple of days only. i have seen a recall in the 2005 and 2006 models but it is still occuring in the newer models. i have seen hundreds of blogs about this problem in this particular model of car. this is just an accident waiting to happen when your brake lights arent working correctly. as well as the car getting stuck in park.

 Driver side low-beam burned out.. i changed it.. two (2) days later the light was out again.. i changed the bulb again and noticed the plug-in where the bulb gets plugged into looked like it shorted out there.. it was burned.. i put the new bulb in and two to three days later, it was out again.. both times the bulbs did not look like the burned out... i am tired of taking the headlight off of the car to change the bulbs.. i'm gona have to do it again though, so we don't get a ticket for having a light out..something needs to done about this, because i know i'm not the only one with this problem... thank you, chris rohde

 Was stopped by the police stating i had no taillights. took the car to the dealer and they stated that the fuse was blown and replaced. within about 3 weeks the fuse blew again. had it in twice since and they still cannot find the problem. keep it a few days and resend the car out. i have checked it out and it seems that when it blows it is in auto mode and when auto lights come on. they said no connection and leave it again. this is a safety issue for my family if we lose tailights at night we could be rear ended. also i am on my third set of headlights. keep blowing out. and second set of tires.
