If the tire pressure warning light on your 2007 Pontiac Torrent is on, it may be due to a software issue with the tire pressure monitor control unit. There is updated control module software available to correct this concern, though some vehicles will need to have the control module replaced. In most cases, it will require a trip to your local dealer to compete this repair.
Proper tire inflation is critical to the safe operation of all vehicles. Tire pressure specifications can be found on an inflation sticker on the driver's door frame or in the owners manual. Fuel mileage, increased tire wear, ride quality, handling, and road noise are just a few of the problems that might arise from improperly inflated tires.
All models up to 2007 with cast aluminum wheels may experience a loss of air pressure that is due to porosity in the aluminum casting. Have your repair shop refer to GM SB-05-03-10-003B for instructions on how to repair this problem.
