SOURCE: 2005 Pontiac Vibe having trouble shifting 1st 2nd code P2716 MIL

This is most likely due to a bad solenoid pack in transmission. You could have tranny serviced and see if it helps. Poor fluid condition makes valves stick in those.

Also check the 2 drain tubes on either side of your sun roof. This might be plugged and needs to be cleared.
If not water backs up and will begin to leak..

SOURCE: amber check engine light on 2004 pontiac vibe

Good Luck with this. My 2005 Vibe light came on Jan 9/10. Checked manual, says emissions problem. But within a week car starts to slam into reverse and second gear. Took car to repair shop to check, code was undecisive. We had plugs changed (car has 112,000 kms). Light still on, then went out for a few days then back on again. This time when checked code was a transmission error. Took car to transmission repair shop, again code not definative. They decide to drop the pan, replace trans fluid and replace a solenoid. Light still on. Light goes off for about 45 kms, shifting smooth, then bang starts all over again. Back to transmission shop, check light again, mechanic makes some calls to a friend in Quebec who has a transmission shop. This guy says that it is a computer problem and that there is a recall for it that just came out. Car goes to dealership tomorrow hopefully they know about the recall. So far this has cost me $700.00.

SOURCE: 2007 pontiac vibe gear shift light replacement.

On the 2004 Pontiac Vibe that I owned, I ended up taking it to the dealer. Perhaps this advice can avoid having you end up at the same place!

Remove the middle environmental control knob (fan blower speed, I think) by tugging on it until it comes off. Underneath you will find a single Phillips screw. Remove the screw and gently (so you don't mar it), pull at the plastic trim surrounding the environmental control area. It should pop out. You may also want to remove the two-prong AC outlet by prying it gently out with a small slotted screwdriver before attempting to pry out the trim panel.

After that panel is out of the way, you are ready to tackle the plastic trim surrounding the shift knob. Begin by removing the small holding compartment at the base of the shift knob. There is a single Philips screw holding the plastic piece to a supporting brace on the lower end. Four additional screws on the upper end are revealed by the removal of the environmental control trim piece as previously described.

Okay, from there, you're ready to gently pry loose the trim panel surrounding the shift knob.

The bulb can be located on the driver's side. It's a 'funny' looking bulb that is integrated into a two wire bundle. You may end up having to replace the bulb+wire bundle as a unit. The electrical connector is on the opposite side of the shift knob.

Good luck!

Repeated PO171 Lean Code:2008 Pontiac Vibe

First thing i would do is take the mass air flow sensor off and clean the small thin wires inside with a non-chlronated brake cleaner let dry for 10 minutes then re-install.If that does'nt help then check the fuel pressure it could be a weak pump or clogged fuel filter.Then check for vacuum leaks and next i would have the injectors cleaned.

Check engine on some times and other times off pontiac wave think might be gas cap; 2007

It very well could be the gas cap. You can buy them new from a parts store for $5. or $6. The dealer will charge you much more than that. To diagnose for sure you should have the parts store read the code for you. They usually do it for free if you ask.
