Question about 2009 Pontiac Torrent
Its possible the thermostat is not working correctly, but quick changes with the heat is usually from being low on coolant or a problem with the blend doors under the dash.
Your temp gauge should be going up and down if the thermostat is not working right. And it would take a few minutes for a change to be noticed. As the thermostat closed the engine would heat up, then cool down if it opened.

your air damper or diverter may not be working.this is basically a mechanism that opens a flap by your heater core to control the amount of hot air that comes out.There is a rod that this flapper pivots on and if this rod is broken or the motor that operates it is not working you will either have heat all the time or no heat at all depending on which position it broke at.I know because my torrent has the same problem.To fix my problem they have to remove the dashboard to access the heater core which amounts to major $$$. I hope your problem is an easier fix. good luck

The 1st thing to check when this lite comes on is the alternator.
How to check it free: got Pep Bys/Advance Auto Parts/ Autozone and ask for a free "Charging System Check." They'll hook up their computerized diagnostic gizmo, and tell you which part is dying/dead.
The experts always check voltage with a voltmeter (as good as the auto parts stores machine).
If the alternator is putting out > 14V (measured with engine on, since that's the only time the alternator's working), then alternator's good.
Measure battery voltage with engine off too - if there's a 1.5-2V difference between battery voltage
with engine on and engine off, then the alternator's working to cause that difference.

It sounds like your blend door is broken. I have a 2006 Pontiac Torrent as well and this happened to me last spring. Luckily, I live in AZ so I didn't have to deal with it until now. It costs approximately $1000 to fix as they have to take the entire dash out of the car. I will take all day to fix a piece of the car that costs $97. Pontiac should do a recall as this happens to almost every car.

SOURCE: Where is the thermostat located
I have to have mine replaced as well and found out it is located way behind the engine and will cost around $200 to fix because of labor....the part is only $10.
