2011 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.

2011 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.
General Motors is recalling certain 2011 Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Equinox, and GMC Terrain vehicles because one or both of the front safety belt buckle anchors may separate during a crash. As a result, the safety belt system may not properly restrain the front seat occupants, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will modify the affected safety belt buckles as necessary.
