Good to see, those are the EPA fuel ratings for this vehicle.
My 05 Crew LS just went through the 100k and she's pulling strong, half the dash lights are out and I put her into a concrete retaining wall covered in snow at 40mph, just needed a new bumper. Hard to break and cheap to run
I had some rough engine issues that affected every system in the vehicle. I bought a $3 spray can of Gumout Throttle Body Cleaner and sprayed the plate. Fixed it immediately and she's running nice.
#279 of 684 Re: 04 window trouble [Alennx] also cruise control issue
Feb 09, 2010 (7:57 am)
Bought my 2004 Colorado new in Kentucky. Battery check light always came on in winter weather below 32 degrees but the battery lasted 5 years no other problems... love the truck. When the battery went low, the drivers side window quite working and the FOB as well. It does set the alarm but no locks will work. When you hit the lock or unlock the parking and rear lights blink indicating it got the signal.
Always garaged now and should be less problems occur.
Comes Jan 8, 2010, battery just 5 days shy of one year old and...... the drivers side windows doesn't work (all others do), FOB won't lock doors but does blink lights and set the alarm.
- no battery check light, battery seems okay
-checked all fuse and relays, appear okay.
I just got on the internet and found this common problem others have had and I'm anxious to try the control module fix (seems like the most common thread solution) and look for the any bare wires or door / harness interferrences.
A.S. I did have another electrical issue and that was with the cruise control working erratically. Found out the dealer didn't really have any ideas except the $95 per hour diagnosis path and admitted if it is intermittent they probably would find it. I mentioned that they had a recal for an emergency / brake light issue in 2007 and they left these parts under on the floor (below the steering column). They ignored that.
So I crawled under and found they cut wire clamps off many wires to do their replacement work and left the cruise control wire next to a sharp edged bracket on the steering wheel.... yes it cut into the wire and was intermittently shorting out. Wrapped the wire, but foam between the wires and bracket and clamped them (the way a professional repair should be). All has been fine for over a year.
Bottom line the wiring and control don't seem to take much vibration, and or voltage variation before they start causing issue. Why isn't GM aware of this???
#280 of 684 2005 Colorado ABS Fault, MPH Gauge, Turn Signal Problems
Mar 12, 2010 (4:29 pm)
I have a 2005 Colorado Quad Cab 4x4 Z71 with 65,000 miles on it. I noticed several days ago that the right turn signal was coming and going which made me figure that the bulb was on its way out. Well today after I started it up and took off the cluster displayed ABS Fault, the right turn signal blinked like it was out, the MPH gauge was bouncing all over the place, and the truck was acting like it didn't want to shift. Also, when braking I noticed that the turn signals light up for just a second. This problem came and went on my way home so I have scheduled an appointment with the dealer for tomorrow, but I thought that I would see what you all thought. Thanks for the help out.

I took mine to a trusted shop, finally after coming to terms that I couldn't fix it. They hooked up the diagnostic tool and everything was triggering in the switches, the power just wasn't making it to the motor. They pulled out all the fuses, did everything their online source said to do. Nothing. Basically, they trust another local dealer who hadn't heard of the problem and they said a reset of the PCM (maybe BCM, but they said PCM) may take care of it. If that didn't do it, the module attached to the drivers door lock was the next in line for replacement. I drove home, pondering the next move. The next day I went on a business trip and when I returned, I went to open the door and it was locked! What? My doors don't lock. I get in and start driving away. Sure enough, the window now works too. Not sure how long this will last, but its odd. I'm guessing the motions the shop went through triggered something to work again after the truck sat overnight.

I had the exact same problem with my 2004 Colorado. When the truck sat in the sun for awhile the windows and door locks started working. When the temperature cooled, they would stop again. Like you, everything was checked, without a solution. Finally, I replaced the driver's side master door lock/window switch assembly and all problems were permanently fixed. It's interesting how this is a common problem, but none of the Chevrolet dealers "have ever heard of it"....lol

I posted message #280, but never went to the dealer as I said I was going to because my nearest GM Dealer wouldn't provide me with a loner car that my GM Certified literature says they must because it is still under the warranty. I digress... Since the first incident I haven't had any trouble with the MPH gauge, but evertime I brake whichever turn signal I have on either goes completely away or blinks as if it is burnt out. It is never the same on either side it just depends on how the truck is feeling at that particular turn. Just like your problem the actual lights work, but it is the indication inside the cab that is wrong. I'll keep you posted if I hear anything and you do the same as well. Thanks and have a good one!

I ended up taking the left rear light assembly off, found a loose bulb, tightened the prongs, bulb back in, fixed!! While I was there I snugged up all bulbs on both sides, hopfully this problem is over.. try and let me know if it works for you.. good luck!

About 4 weeks ago the Passlock came on. Didn't go away but didn't affect the truck any either. A week later the SRS indication came on. I read on the boards about a broken wire in the drivers side 1/2 door and sure enough I found it. I took it it to the shop and they replaced the wiring in the 1/2 door and that fixed the SRS indication. But I still had the Passlock indication. With exception of the indication the truck started and ran great. Two days ago I turned the the ignition over and nothing happened. No starter no cranking no nothing. I could just hear the relays clicking. I turned the key back and forth several times and it started. It took several back and forths before it started so I could leave work. I thought it would never start this morning so I could take it to the shop. They had it for a few hours and said it was the Body Control Module. This sounded right, the BCM has many things running through it. Does anyone know if the Passlock goes through the BCM?
