#103 of 117 Trouble starting '07 Chevy Colorado
Nov 20, 2011 (5:58 pm)
Sometimes after I've driven to say a store, I will come back out and my Colorado wont start. The engine turns over fine, but just cranks. After it sits about fifteen minutes or so it starts right up.
This has happened many times, and sometimes wont happen for a week or so, but the problem always returns eventually.

I apologize for your frustrations. Have you spoke to a dealer regarding your concerns? Have you spoke with Customer Assistance? If not, I would recommend speaking with a dealer and starting a case with GM Customer Assistance. Please feel free to email me.

Same thing cost me $400 for a new module. Known problem, GM wouldnt back it.
Service Dept claimed I was messing with both lock and window control at the same time and "blew out" the module.

In September, 2010 we bought a 2010 gmc canyon crew cab, 5 cyl., 2wd, off road (not 4wd). Stepping down to a smaller truck (from the full size crewcab duramax allison) 3/4 ton 2005 model, brougt quite a bit of gripes on my part due to the size (and me being a big guy). I have had a hard time adjusting to this little truck. However, the gas milage still is near 19 mpg (I hoped for better). However, I have had literally no problems with the truck, now at 21,000 miles. It is easy in and out of traffic, and easy to park. Other than getting in and out of the vehicle being an issue for me, the view to the right rear (at about 45 degree angle) is a little tough due to the high back seats. The only slight issue has been the keyless entry not being as not being as responsive as I would like. I have had to lock the doors from the inside a few times.

I have been reading all the posts about locks and windows intermittent
I have not had the problem on my Z71 Ext cab colorado
but I had it on a toyota Truck and a Silverado both were moisture problems
get the door panel off check the weather stripping for area water gets in try to seal it then unplug the switch carefully clean contacts with electronic cleaner
you can get it at radio shack after cleaning coat the contacts with dielectric
grease snap every thing back together all should work

sounds like Molle Chevrolet needs to be replaced by a new chevy dealer
a dealers input to service dept reps can be a disaster
have it towed to a GM dealer in another city you should not have any other trouble
