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 recentley bought an 08 canyon: when I apply the brake pedal my left signal comes on.. if I'm turning left with signal on and touch brake it speeds up but when I get the wife to drive it around the yard all lights appear to work as normal, just weird on the dash??After reading all these posts on window, fuse block etc I'm getting a little nervous, any help? thanks

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?
#288 of 684 2004 Colorado Electrical Drama
Jun 17, 2010 (7:05 pm)
I own a 2004 Colorado Ext Cab and have been noticing some very strange things about the truck. About a month or so ago I noticed that when the a/c was on it was not blowing cold air, I took it to a family member who works on cars for a living and he checked the fuse box and said that the fuse wasn't pushed all the way in, he pushed it down and the cold air blew....no problem. Since then on several occassions I have shut the truck off and had the keys on the counter in the house and would walk outside and the alarm would be blaring and the truck radio would be blasting....I would open the door and the alarm and radio would cut off and everything would be normal again. It has done it twice this night and I have cranked the truck and cut the radio completely off and left the truck unlocked. Does anyone know what this issue may be and about how much the repairs would be? Thanks for your help!!!
#289 of 684 Heater fan problems

My heater/AC fan has quit working. I have other intermittent electrical problems in the past. On occasion it will turn itself back on again. Any ideas?
Jul 12, 2010 (11:07 am)
The dealer thinks I'm losing my mind. On occasion when I start my truck (04 Colorado Crew) the ignition will roll on even after releasing the switch. When this occurs the truck will not start. I have to wait about 10 minutes before it will start again. I took it to the dealer twice now with no luck, they say they can't find anything wrong.
What can you suggest is happening? I'm getting frustrated, theres only 68,000 on the O.D. and I have an Ext. warranty.

My hvac fan has quit working on all speeds. I have checked the resistor, wireing harnes and they are both fine. Checked the grounding block under the hood & it is fine. Hooked a ground to the wireing harnes that goes to the resistor & the fan will blow then. All parts seem to be fine. Could I have a bad hvac controller?
