Question about 2007 Pontiac Torrent FWD
I moved my car 20 ft, and stopped it. 5 minutes later, I attempted to start it, and it did not even try to turn over (just clicked). The driver information center indicated the battery was OK. Put car in neutral to push it out of driveway, and then pushed it back in. Now, the battery is nearly dead, and I cannot shift it out of park, so I cannot push it. I tried jumping the car, but it will not jump. Any ideas?

by the sounds of it the altanator is putting out enough voltage to keep the car running I my self don't think that it's the alt but the battery, if you don't know the age than it's not a bad idea to replace the battery. if the problem is still there than I would test the alt, should be putting out 14.6 volt at all times. but replace the battery first.

Testimonial: "Replaced the battery and seems to be working great now ! Thanks !"
Usually Park will not disengage without the brakes dreppressed in these newer cars.Take the batterey out. If you can trickle charge the batterey, or even give it some juice by leaving it connected to another running car by jumpers. You can check the volts with the right meter. You can get one just for checking car battereys. I got one at Harbor Freight for $5, and it lets you know if the alternator is bad too.
If you have a floor jack with wheels...you can lift half the car just off the wheels on give it a push out of the garage. There are also wheel caddys.

I would check the cables for corrosion build up,clean the cable ends clean,and shiny,make sure the alternator is charging correctly,checked at the battery,with headlights on,and ac on high blower motor,the voltage should read 13.65 to 14.25 volts,no more,no less,then check the see if there is a draw,pulling the battery down,with the key off,if this was helpful,please rate,thank you.
