Well some auto part place will allow you to use the tools. You have to pay a deposit which is usually the price of the tool but when you bring the tool back they will give you the money back. Just for the heck of it I pulled up ball joint for 06 Pontiac G6 and it gave me replacement part lower control arm.

What ? You want to know if you can start it with a screwdriver or you do start it with a screwdriver ?

are you saying that you got this battery from autozone? I went thru three batteries in a week from autozone because the lot# was bad. It,'s quite possible that you have either a short that is draining the battery or that the alternator isnt charging properly. To do a fast check, start the car then remove the positive battery cable with the car running. If it stays running, theres a chance its ok. If it dies, It's most likely the alternator or the voltage regulator Diods. On most cars, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator. I would take it to autozone and have the charging system checked

If you are somewhat mechanically inclined, here is an easy way to see if your heater core is actually plugged or not. It does require that the engine is up to operating temperature, which means you should also be careful not to get burned.

Find where the heater hoses actually pass into the car. They are usually found going into the car behind the engine at the firewall. There should be two black rubber hoses, about 5/8" diameter. With the engine running at operating temperature and the heater on, both hoses should feel pretty hot. If one hose is hot and the other feels cold or lukewarm, the heater core is most likely plugged.

How do you know brake pedal positioning sensor needs to be replaced ? Traction light on ? DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's stored . That's why cruise won't engage . Taking your vehicle to a qualified repair shop an having it diagnosed is what you should do.
Cruise Control Inhibited
The engine control module (ECM) inhibits the cruise control operation when any of the following conditions exist:
• The ECM has not detected a brake pedal activation from the body control module (BCM).
• A Cruise Control System DTC has been set.
• The vehicle speed is less than 40.2 km/h (25 mph).
• The vehicle speed is too high.
• The vehicle is in PARK, REVERSE, NEUTRAL, or 1st gear.
• The engine RPM is too low.
• The engine RPM is too high.
• The system voltage is not between 9-16 volts.
• The Antilock Brake System (ABS)/Traction Control System (TCS) is active for more than 2 seconds.

Do the stop lamps work ?
DTC P0703 Brake Switch Circuit 2
The body control module (BCM) monitors the brake pedal position sensor. When the brake pedal is applied, the BCM detects a predetermined voltage signal. The BCM sends a GMLAN serial data message to the powertrain control module (PCM) indicating the status of the stop lamps.

DTC P1574 Stop Lamp Switch Circuit
The stop lamp switch signal circuit is a direct hardwire input to the throttle actuator control (TAC) module from the body control module (BCM). The TAC module monitors the stop lamp switch signal circuit in order to detect when the brake pedal has been applied. When the brake pedal is pressed, the BCM sends a GMLAN serial data message to the powertrain control module (PCM) indicating that the brake pedal has been applied. The BCM also sends a high voltage signal on the stop lamp switch signal circuit to the TAC module. The TAC module sends a universal asynchronous receiver transmitter (UART) serial data message to the PCM indicating that a brake pedal application has occurred. The PCM will compare the UART serial data message and the GMLAN serial data message in order to confirm that both serial data messages match.

transmission fluid?!?

That's because there is no hydraulically assisted power steering on 4-cyl model G6.The assist comes from a shaft-mounted servo motor. Completely electrical. Good luck with that thing as they are plagued with problems.

You should be able to open the cover piece that holds both lights. This piece if you take a flat head screwdriver carefully, just pry the plastic cover (not the actual push buttons), and release it. You should now have access to the lightbulbs for replacement.
