2010 Chevrolet Equinox ProblemsCheck Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue
A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.
The AC system may not blow cold at times. In many cases, replacement of the AC compressor has corrected this issue.
Vehicles with certain V6 engines may illuminate the Check Engine Light one or more of the following codes: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024, P0341, P0346, P0336, or P0391. Our technicians tell us that some vehicles may require a powertrain control module (PCM) software update to correct this issue. Other vehicles may have excess camshaft end play on one or both cylinder heads which will need to be corrected using special procedures outlined by GM.

2010 Chevrolet Equinox RecallsIgnition Key May Be Removed Without Transmission Lever Shifted To Park
The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.
The driver's and/or passenger's seat may suddenly drop to its lowest position because a bolt securing the height adjuster can fall out. This unexpected movement of the driver's seat could cause a distraction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the height adjuster bolts in both front seats to correct this concern.
The software in the center instrument panel module can cause several dash board functions, including the defrost operation of the HVAC system, to stop working. Under certain driving conditions, the loss of defroster operation could result in reduced visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the center instrument panel computer module to correct this problem. This recall is scheduled to begin during January of 2010. The General Motors recall number is 09298.
