Question about 2006 Pontiac Torrent

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Torrent, the radio just stopped for no apparent reason. I hit the power button an it came on for a minute then shut off again. I check the radio fuse and the audio fuse and both looked good. There seems to be no power, no lights and no clock. What could be the problem?

I think you could use this manual method instead.. My nephew used it to repair my car and it's perfectly fine now. Here's the website he bought
it from.

SOURCE: radio has no audio. clock and radio stations still

Check all of the connections on the back, but most likely the Sound chip is bad. The radio will have to be replaced.

Radio Won't Turn On

You do realize they stopped making a pontiac some years ago

You know it is not new & no one ever does anything but drive vehicles & never work on them

You do not want to-- but know you have to spend money, even if
you do all your own work

You have to spend send some money & go for a road test with
you driving & a mechanic along with a scan tool, to look at &
collect data

I doubt the vehicle has has much in the way of any Preventative
Maintenance. Those days stopped after 1990

You have to look at all data,any codes,i could go on for an hour here

You may or may not have an ABS System trac issue, & the radio
would be weeks out for me, until I ran out of data to fix,all fluids
changed,spark plugs & filters & brake work complete

Replacing the radio may be an issue, as you know some vehicles
need radio codes,so you can't use other radios in there- unless there is a work around

I think this purchase could get expensive very quick-- IF --you really
want to go thru the entire vehicle & get all things as they should be

I'm not putting all this on you,it is just vehicles are very neglected
& require more than the lay person knows

The First thing I would do- is change- Not Flush- the trans fluid
They fail as we talk here, if you don't

Power Steering Fluid & brake fluids

I just could go on all night

I hate to see you with an 8 year old vehicle, that has all
fluids,spark plugs & such -- as it left the assy line

When I turn the radio on its plays fine for about five seconds, then it's stops playing and it says call on the screen. Then if I hit the power button again it goes back to playing music and it never

Is your Bluetooth devices connecting to it automatically when you turn it on? That is most likely the reason, your getting into the car, turning the radio on, playing music and then your phone is connecting to it automatically through Bluetooth, causing it to cut out the radio and display "Call".

I was wandering the same thing, but another option is a AM/FM Transmitter. you can buy one at stores like best buy. You plug your Music Device (iPhone, iPod..etc.) into it and it transmits it to a AM or FM band so you can tune into it with the AM/FM function and listen to your music so you dont hvae to buy a new radio.

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.

2006 pontiac torrent, headlights will not shut off when car is turned off.

I see no commentary regarding how you do turn the Headlights OFF.

Are you aware that there is a time-delay in all GM vehicles that retains Headlight Power for a period of time. Typically this is approximately 2 minutes after Exiting and Locking the Vehicle. Check your Owners Manual and it should explain the operation of the Headlights.

It may be possible that you have a Relay whose contacts have Welded themselves closed.

If you are in doubt, take your vehicle to a certified mechanic and have it checked out professionally. Many independent shops specialize in electrical and drive ability problems.

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.

My airbag light just came on. Their was no accident and no reason. My 2006 suzuki forenza just hit 40,000 miles and my airbag light wont go off.

Airbag light came on for me shortly after buying it... apparently a bad censor but came on again shortly afterwards... Apparently the car is known to have a bad sensor somewhere for the airbags.

If the check engine light stays on it has something to do w/ your fuel line... be it anywhere from the cap all the way to the tip of your exhaust. When it FLASHES there's something MAJORLY wrong, like mine likes to misfire lately....

I believe there was a recall on the headlight wires and safteybelt sensor?
