Chevrolet Colorado Problems
The heater - AC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block.
The CD player in the radio may fail. Our technicians tell us that the radio will need to be removed and sent out to a radio repair shop to correct this condition.
The engine may develop a misfire due to worn valve seats. This fault will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Replacement of the cylinder head may be required to correct this concern.
Chevrolet Colorado Questions
it started rarely, but it's getting more often. When I start it, the ignition switch will stick on. By the time you realize it stuck, the security system has kicked on and your stuck for 10 minutes. Why is this happening?
Ran fine for a few weeks and engine light came back on and running rough again. I noticed at night at an idle the lights and ac will dim until I apply gas pedal again and light will brighten up and ac blows stronger. Can it be an alternator problem or loose belt? Thank you Robert
Chevrolet Colorado Recalls
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.
Certain vehicles may have been produced with a driver's side seat belt buckle electrical connector that does not fit snugly with the connector terminals, causing the electrical connection to be intermittent. This loose electrical connection may cause the driver not to receive a visual or audible warning that the driver's seat belt is not fastened. If the seat belt is not properly fastened in the event of a crash, there is an increased risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the seat belt buckle electrical connector terminals to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 11322.
Certain vehicles may have been assembled with an automatic transmission shift cable adjustment clip that may not retain the cable in the correct position. If the cable is not properly retained, the shift indicator may not show the correct transmission gear. The driver could move the shifter to "Park" and remove the ignition key, but the transmission gear may not be in "Park." The driver may not be able to restart the vehicle and the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash or personal injury. Dealers will install a new automatic transmission adjustment clip to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on July 19, 2011. The General Motors recall number is 11181.
