When you say it doesn't start, does that mean the engine cranks when you turn the key but won't fire, or absolutely nothing happens when you turn the key on? Does anything electrical work; headlights, horn, dash lights, radio?

Hi, i know that the link is about a different car type then yours, but the principles are the same.

Remove battery

Then place your new battery, connect it & test that it's working.
If your radio is working, write down it's security code.

Hope this helps you,
Eitan.

SOURCE: I have a 1994 Pontiac Bonneville SSE.. won't start

It sounds like you have a short somewhere that is draining the battery...this type of thing is usually caused by a faulty voltage regulator. I recommend taking the alternator to an autoparts store to have it tested...don't be surprised if the alternator tests good; a faulty voltage regulator can and will drain a battery in a matter of hours. I am including a link where you can order a voltage regulator for your Bonneville or, while you are at the autoparts store, you can buy one there. The link will help you to see what the voltage regulator looks like so you can identify it in your engine compartment. Hope this helps, good luck!

SOURCE: just put a new battery in my 2007 pontiac torrent

I replaced my battery 6 months ago. Recently, my battery would die, then I would get a jump start, it would run a couple of days and die again. This all started happening shortly after my rear wiper started malfunctioning, either from a short or a motor issue. I read on this website to pull the #3 fuse for the rear wiper motor, to disconnect it and prevent any further potential drain on my battery. I did and have not had any other battery issues.

I have a 2009 pontiac torrent and it has been hesitaing to start when i give it a little gas it starts could this be that my fuel pump is going


...or your fuel filter could need replacement. I would start with that before spending a wad of money on a non-returnable part that you may not need.

I jumped started my 2007 Torrent and now the radio wont come on, nor the sound for turn signals.


Not a solution, but our torrent is doing the same thing. Periodically things like the radio, blinkers, dash lights, etc won't work. After parking the car for a while and trying again they seem to work again. This continues for about 2 weeks then the car decides not to start. After recharging the battery; a couple of days later the cycle continues again.
We thought it might be a short in the DVD player as it happened when we left the disc in, but the dealership has been unable to duplicate the issue.
Everything from updating the software on the electric seats has been done without success.
