Customer Question
Hi Dan, I have 2007 Pontiac...
Hi Dan,
I have 2007 Pontiac Torrent. Two days ago I started the vehicle and it started and then went completely dead. I have AAA come out and jump start it. When trying to drive it the transmission signal came on and the stabilitrac light came on. It then said reduced engine power and I could only go about 20 miles per hour. I had the car towed to mechanic who replaced the throttle. The same problem happened. He then replaced the starter, and the same thing happened. Any idea's what could be causing this? It also has an interlock for detecting alcohol.

Eventually the car becomes completely dead and will not start at all. The dash lights come on and it seems it's out of gas. Then it will go completely dead no, dash lights and no starter.
