#640 of 712 Engine light on and won't start
Mar 02, 2012 (5:32 pm)
My father's GMC Canyon was sitting in the drive way for some time now, he is on Hospice and cannot drive anymore. Well I tried to start the truck and it would not even take a jump. The engine light is on.
Any ideas on what I can do? His resources are very limited.
Thanks a bunch

You're totally right !! That's what I did, just sold it and get something according with my needs, and I get a Honda Ridgeline. I know is not a "truck" but for the 4 times a year a need a truck it's very useful. Great ride, lots of space and the in bed truck is just great!!.

Get a new battery and put it in the truck or try one of those "porta pack" jumper devices. I had to replace the battery in mine as it was so far gone it wasn't holding a charge very well.

#645 of 712 2006 Chevy Colorado Codes
Apr 07, 2012 (1:23 am)
I see that I'm one of too many people that are having problems with the Colorado I have had the truck for about 3 weeks and I have had the following codes B0899, V1064, P0017, P0128, P0420, P0455 so here's the 50 million dollar question does anyone know if the codes are just sensors or do I have major problems already??

it might be also your map sensor,if your carring heavy loads on your truck.even after you remove load from truck it still can bog down ,like your going to stahl.what a map sensor is .when carring a heavy load on your truck this sensor adjust the gas /air mixture to take the heavy load.

I am probably to late but do not drive the truck. When the truck misfires it starts to pour gas through the motor. I know this because i was watching my gas gauge go strait down. I took in the vehicle and asked them if my gauge was going bad but they said that it was over filling the cylinders to make sure that the truck would still drive. the head is bad if you have not had it replaced yet.
#649 of 712 2nd Owner, Head Replaced 6-7K, Problem Back!
Jun 04, 2012 (2:34 pm)
I have an '05 Crewcab I5, Z71LS purchased just 6 months ago w/95000 miles, the head was replaced 1 to 2000 miles prior to my purchase. Today my mechanic confimed that the miss it developed last Friday wasn't a bad spark plug or coil, it's a bad valve, valve spring, lifter, with a compression of 30 it's definetly in the head somewhere! So back to the dealer to see if my "new" head has a warranty & if it extends to 2nd owners. To be continued.
