2007 Pontiac Torrent ABS Problem.

Replaced left front and left rear hub bearings
Is there any way to retrieve ABS codes without a scanner?

Answer: There is no way to pull ABS codes from the computer of your Pontiac Torrent. It is not like older model cars and trucks when you could ground a terminal in the diagnostic connector and count the flashing warning light. Today's vehicles must use a scanner. In fact, on you Torrent, the scanner must also be able to communicate on GM's high speed LAN system. This is a Local Area Network- similar to office and home networking. All the computers talk to each other on newer vehicles over a network, and the scan tool must be able to communicate on the network.

    Evaporative Emission System Operation and Components

    The Evaporative Emission (EVAP) control system limits the fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere. The EVAP transfers the fuel vapors from the sealed fuel tank to an activated carbon (charcoal) storage device (EVAP canister). The EVAP canister stores the vapors until the engine is able to use the extra fuel vapor. When the engine is able to use the extra fuel vapor,

    Code P0171 Fuel Trim Error

    The powertrain control module (PCM) controls the air/fuel metering system in order to provide the best possible combination of driveability, fuel economy and emission control. Fuel delivery is controlled differently during Open and Closed Loop. During Open Loop, the PCM determines fuel delivery based on sensor signals, without oxygen sensor (O2S) input.
