2009 Pontiac G8 Recalls
The cables that attach the front driver's and passenger's seat belts to the vehicle may bend and break over time. Dealers will relocate and replace the seat belt tensioner assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
The ignition key may be unintentionally bumped from the run position to the off position, resulting in shutting off the engine. Dealers will modify the flip key and transmitter assembly free of charge to correct the problem.
With the front passenger seat occupied and in the full forward position, the seat position sensor will cause a 30 millisecond deployment delay between the first and second stages of the dual-stage frontal passenger airbag. In the event of a crash, this delay may result in increased head injury to certain front seat occupants. Dealers will reprogram the airbag control module software to correct this concern.
The brake lights may stay illuminated. The tire pressure warning light may come on only after a tire has lost an excessive amount of air. Ineffective brake lights could cause an accident. Erroneous tire pressure warnings could allow tire pressure to get dangerously low. Dealers will reprogram the brake position sensor and the remote door lock receiver. The GM recall numbers are 09101 and 09046. This recall began on June 5, 2009.
