2010 Chevrolet Colorado ProblemsErratic Fuel Gauge Operation
The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.
The throttle position sensor (TPS) on the Chevrolet Colorado LT is notorious for failure which causes:
- Check engine light
- Reduced Power message
- OBD trouble code P2135
This issue is related to the throttle position sensor, and can be caused by faulty wiring to the TPS, bad connection at the TPS, or a failed TPS.
To correct this issue, the wiring harness, connector, and throttle position sensor must be inspected, tested, and/or replaced. The most common cause is a faulty TPS.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
2010 Chevrolet Colorado Questions17,000 miles, when trying to start truck, turn key on and no response-None. (1 answer)
Ignition turns on but no starting attempt, no clicking. New Battery installed. About ten minutes later it will start, no problem. This is a periodic problem.
The dealer has had to pull the dash off two times and the labor is very expensive. Said each time was a different part and it is not under warranty.
Did I get a lemon and should Cheverolet be responsible?
Thank-you very much. I'll wait for your reply.
2010 Chevrolet Colorado RecallsThe Hood May Open Unexpectedly While Driving
The front hood is secured by two latches, the primary and secondary latch. The secondary latch prevents the hood from opening when the primary latch has been activated. These vehicles are being recalled because some may have been assembled without a secondary hood latch. With this latch missing, if the primary latch is not properly engaged the hood could open unexpectedly while driving. This could obstruct the view of the driver, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the hood on the affected vehicles to correct this concern.
General Motors is recalling certain 2004–2011 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Isuzu regular and extended cab models without a rear seat and equipped with a 60/40 front bench split seat for failing to comply with federal safety standards on child restraint anchorage systems. The top tether anchor for the front center seat is not accessible and the manual provides no instruction on its use. In order to correct the problem, dealers will cut a hole in the back panel trim cover to allow access to the top tether anchor and will provide supplemental instructions on the use of the top tether.
