Electrical power issues


Asked by Jul 30, 2016 at 03:39 PM about the 2006 Pontiac G6 Base V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2006 Pontiac g6 3.5l
I was driving along as normally one day. The car
hasn't had any major issues in the time I've had it
(6 months) besides tires and a bearing. I was on
the off ramp coming down a steep curb and in the
middle of it the car died. I ended up getting a jump
and continued on. About an hour later I got an oil
change. From there I drove another hour and it
died again while I was traveling forward. I was in a
parking lot so I parked.I got the battery checked.
Was told it was bad. Got a brand new battery and
then it just clicked one time.  From then I checked
connections and voltage. All were well. I decided to
test the starter and it was bad.so I replaced that as
well. Now when I attempt to start the car the
starter just slowly spins a couple times then
stops.creating a low whirring sound. Relays and
fuses have all been checked. Flywheel is not
damaged.180,000 miles appx.
