  1. New Member, Defogger Issue

    Stereo / Electronics
    Two things: 1. I would think that the defogger should have 12 volts on one connector and ground on the other. Try putting a 12 volt test light across those two connectors. 2. Tint shops are notorious for butchering on-glass defoggers when they use a razor blade to scrape off the tint that...
  2. GXP in Music Video

    G8 GXP Talk (V8)
    Good song!
  3. Key Puzzle

    Tech Lounge
    Note that the keys need to be cut for the lock cylinder that is in the door *now*, not the lock cylinder that the factory installed. You'll wind up in this trouble if some cheapskate had the ignition lock cylinder replaced, but didn't bother to change the door lock cylinder to match.
  4. Airbag fault after dead battery

    Stereo / Electronics
    The airbag system passenger seat sensors are crap. Mine failed while it was sitting at the dealer waiting for an unrelated part. :frown2:
  5. Intermittent warm A/C on start up cold or hot.

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    My G8 was hypersensitive to refrigerant level. The dealer added a tenth of a pound of refrigerant and that made a big difference. Check the refrigerant level before you replace anything expensive!
  6. What Would You Replace Your G8 With?

    G8 GT Talk (V8)
    I love my 2016 GMC Terrain SLT (same thing as a Chevy Equinox) with V6 and AWD. I wouldn't touch one ot the new generation (2018+) Terrain or Equinox with a ten foot pole, though. They appear to have almost as many bugs as the 2010 Equinox/Terrain did. GM didn't get all of the bugs out of...
  7. Why are my struts moving ?........ALOT

    Suspension / Brakes
    Three things: 1. Has the alignment been checked? Are one or both front wheels toed-out? 2. What's the tire pressure? I've seen similar symptoms from over-inflated tires. (43 PSI when it should have been 35.) 3. Did you check the rear suspension for looseness as well as the front?
  8. Stock Amp specs?

    Stereo / Electronics
    The head unit puts out 30 watts per channel if I recall corrctly. (That rating may be a little optimistic.)
  9. Stock Amp specs?

    Stereo / Electronics
    Worse than that. The subwoofer amplifier in the trunk is only 2 x 30 watts. Fortunately it is easy to replace. https://www.g8board.com/forums/9-stereo-electronics/5334-sub-amp-q-tutorial.html
  10. Do speakers and the bass mod really help?

    Stereo / Electronics
    Do the speakers and the center speaker resistor mod. Maybe add an amplifier. The head unit is *not* the problem. See post #5 of the thread at https://www.g8board.com/forums/9-stereo-electronics/33580-swapping-just-speakers-stock-amp.html
  11. Gravel/Stones in Passenger Footwell??

    Appearance / Detailing
    You anywhere near Gatewell, Kentucky? You may be a victim of the infamous Gatewell Gravel Monster, whose fewmets resemble kitty litter. He is believed to be the offspring of a wandering Chucacabra and an Australian Drop Bear who was imported by Quantas for a photo session and then escaped. Or...
  12. Failed recall repair?

    G8 GT Talk (V8)
    Thanks for the followup post!!!
  13. Key Stuck in Ignition / Car Stuck in Park

    Tech Lounge
    I'm kind of wondering about either a flaky battery or a flaky ground.
