Key locked, battery is dead, car does not come alive after I changed battery

Asked by Sep 09, 2015 at 07:07 PM about the 2007 Pontiac Torrent Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Pontiac Torrent 2007
I left key in "on" position and next day found battery dead.

I recharged battery, put it in, and...

nothing worked except some lights on dashboard, radio, sweepers and fan.
Everything else does not work, engine does not start.
There is a message on screen "Visit service soon".
Key is still locked, transmission in "P" position and I could not change it.

What happened and is it curable?

Short circuit in the BCM (Body Control Module). Brought car to GM dealer service. They spent 3,5 hours to find the cause = $300 New BCM with 12/12 warranty = $350

I have a 2007 Torrent and it cost me $700 because it needed a new computer. Apparently, this auto has multiple computers. The key still gets stuck in the ignition from time to time. What a piece of SHIT this auto is. I've had so many problems with plastic pieces breaking off, and shame on you GM motors. This is why Americans don't trust the reliability or the durability of these cars/trucks. Step it up so that our autos last for more than 5 years without mechanical or plastic/interior failure!!!!!
