WHERE IT IS LOCATED IS LIKE MISSION IMPOSSIBLE TO REMOVE AND REPLACE. NEVER SEEN ANTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE . U HAVE TO REMOVE BOLTS AND STUFF JUST TO SEE THE BATTERY BEFORE YOU CAN EVEN THINK OF REPLACING IT .

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.

2006 pontiac torrent clicks when I turn the key and the dash light flash on and off


Have you had the battery tested ?
Could be a dead cell in the battery or a dirty connection with one of the main battery cables.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

2006 Pontiac Torrent, won't start, changed battery, and it started immediately after, but 20 minutes later, it wouldn't start again.


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.

2006 pontiac torrent shut down car will just crank, not start


The factory alarm is not to be tampered with as you can reset it but not disconnect it as it's part of the main fuel injection system. Do you have the right key? Just because it turns and cranks doesn't mean it has the right code. the security light off with the key on ut not cranking? If it stays on you do have a security problem. The system can be reset ( if the battery is good, and hot. Trun the key to crank and letgo the security light will but on or blinking . Leave the key on till the light goes out (around 15 minutes. Once it's out turn the key off then back on and the security light will be back on again. again wait till it goes out turn off then on again till the light goes out. Now turn the key off wait a few seconds trun it on and crank the engine. If it starts then it's reset. Sometimes I've had to do this more than three times to get it to reconize the key as the right one. rember a store cut key won't ever work as it doesnt have the (brain in it the the factory key does. Lets say your wrong, about the security system. The fuel pumps go bad like crazy and its thier season to fail. They fail quicker if you $5 the car alot. (runing on empty) Was the check engine light on as it ran the last time it was running? If so the codes need to be retieved and repaired. A scanner will find the security enabled on too.

Won't start


this problem is caused by a defective starter solenoid, the contacts are burned and not making connection to run the starter motor.

When we put the key in it will not turn. If I fiddle with it it will eventually turn and start the car. I can turn the wheel with the key out. I am thinking it might be something in that locking syste


I think that you need a new ignition tumbler You can find instructions in most manuals. If key has a security feature you may need a dealer to re-code it though. Job is not terribly difficult but you need to follow instructions exactly to avoid getting getting smacked in the face by the airbag!!! (no fun)
