Use plyers, and if still too stuck, replace the battery cables, they're probably corroded and cannot be used with the new battery.

Cd changer error on cd player and it wont operate 2006 Torrent


Changer problems are very common in the Torrent. These radios are very specific to the Torrent and specific to 2006. i usually take the stereo apart and replace the cd changer drive, replace it and then reinstall the stereo back into vehicle.. These Radios are programmed directly into data stream so you can remove the radio and reinstall it without having to get a code for it to work. But if you try and install a different stereo from another torrent it will have to be programmed to your vehicle before it will be able to work.

I have a 2006 Torrent that keeps trying to start itself. No key in the ignition. When its not trying to crank the starter, the lights on the dash blink on and off.


Serious wiring problem or short--get fixed very soon or it MAY catch on fire or burn wires out--remove battery cable until you either drive or tow it to a garage.

How to change the battery?


Loosen the bolt that holds the negative battery terminal and then positive battery terminal. Put the new one in and reverse order to put in.

  • Step 2 Twist and pull up on the end of the cable with your hand. If it does not come off easily you may want to purchase a battery terminal puller from your local auto parts store. This will help prevent damage to your battery or cables. It is not recommended to use a screwdriver as a pry-bar, this could break off your battery terminal or cause other damage.
  • Step 3 Detach the positive (red) battery cable from the battery using the same method.
  • Step 4 Using a combination wrench or a socket and ratchet, remove the battery hold-down clamp.
  • Step 5 Take the battery out of the battery tray. Batteries are heavy, so grab from the bottom using both hands. If the battery has a handle, use that instead.
  • Step 6 Use baking soda mixed with water and a wire brush to clean any corrosion from the battery tray and the hold-down clamp.
  • Step 7 Clean the battery cable connectors with a wire brush. To remove heavy corrosion from the connectors, use battery-cleaning solution (available at any auto-parts store).
  • Step 8 Place the new battery in the battery hold-down tray and secure the battery with the hold-down clamp. Spray both terminal ends with anti-corrosion solution (optional). Attach and tighten the positive battery cable. Attach and tighten the negative battery cable. Check that all cable connectors are tight. If you can move them at all, your car may not start.

    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.
