I had the same problem...went back to dealer several times until it was fixed...they said nothing about a software problem....I had the entire cluster replaced when I first purchased vehicle...thought it was related to that...

MY 2006 TORRENT WAS IN ACCIDENT AND ITS FIXED BUT THE TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT AND THE REDUCE POWER LIGHT COMES. WHEN BOTH LIGHTS COMES ON THERE IS NO POWER AND IT BEHAVES AS IF THE TRANSMISSION IS BAD. WHAT CAN I DO?

It sounds like your Torrent is not fixed. Take it back to the people who did the repairs and have them check the wiring, sensors and transmission. You paid them to fix it and they didn't.

I, too, have had similar issues with the "service stabilitrak" "traction control" "reduce engine power" and check engine light. At first they would come on maybe once a week, but have become progressively worse. I took it to the dealer when the lights weren't on, and also said "sorry, come back when they're on." So I did. The mechanics said that there were several codes that showed up, and GM wasn't giving them any answers or solutions.
Now, I've tried everything. I tried a different dealer, with no luck. The last time I took it in they basically told me that there are 5 different things they could try, but my extended warranty wouldn't cover it, and it could cost up to $5000. I cannot afford that gamble...it still may not work.
The worst part is the "reduce engine power." I cannot drive at the speed limit when in "limping mode." This is now happening everyday.
What do I try? Is it the throttle body? Or is it the speed sensor? I can't try everything, I'm on a limited budget here.
I have to fix this car. I can't afford this lemon anymore!!!

I have an 06' Pontiac Torrent and it seems every time I wash it either by hand or through the car wash the T/C, Check Engine and Emissions lights come on. The T/C light will go off first approximately 2-4 hours later and full power is restored. The other two go off usually 4-6 hours later. Where is the T/C sensor located? Can this be avoided in the future or do I have to live with it the way it is?

I'm very interested in finding out what the out come was. I'm having the same problem. My truck is at the dealership right now. They say its the throttle body and want 804.00 parts and labor. It took them all day to read or find the codes for the diagnostic. And doesn't know if anything else will be wrong after fixing this. I barely got it to the dealership today, because of the reduced engine power.

I've had the same 3 lights come on after car washes TWICE now- was anything ever resolved? Last time this happened, I (in my absolute ignorance) paid a shop to fix it without really investigating...) Whatever happened?

The problem is still ongoing. I had a diagnostic done at a local GM dealership who in turn gave me the error code C0040 which indicated the Right Front Hub Assembly was defective. I had it repaired and within 4 days time the same lights are back. I took it back to the dealership and had it diagnosed again with the same code. I am having it replaced once again as the part may be defective. I am pretty sure that this wont correct the underlying problem, what ever it is.

I am having a problem with the security system/starting. This has happened several times but not every time. When I unlock the doors and try to start the car the lock security light is flashing. The steering wheel is not in the locked position when this happens. If I crank the steering wheel very far to the right to get it to lock, then the key won't go in, I then have to crank the wheel again to get the key in the ignition. It would appear that when I last shut off the ignition the steering wheel does not lock like it should be. Dealership could not duplicate the problem, nor did any thing show up on diagnostic machine. This is very frustrating and I am afraid I am going to be stranded somewhere. Any one else ever had this happen, am I doing something wrong when I shut off the car???
