#352 of 684 Driver Window/Locks
Dec 19, 2010 (8:30 am)
OK! Many post on this issue and I have had this problem several times in the Past. 2004 Colorado Extended Cab. It has always happened when the battery runs down. Several times I have fixed the problem by disconnecting the neg terminal and charging the battery. Last week on a cold Ohio morning with a 7 year old battery, it barely started and I noticed the time on the radio was off. Now Driver Window and Locks not working. I did my previous fix with the neg terminal and battery charge. Did not fix it. I replaced the battery with a new on and still does not work. I read most of the 350 post on this forum and decided to remove the window switch from the drivers door and took it out of the cold and split the switch to expose the contacts on the board. I took a pencil eraser and wiped the contacts. I made sure the switch warmed up and reinstalled the switch and everything worked. One more thing, the battery I bought for the Colorado had the filler caps where the original was maintenance free. Because of the filler caps, the battery lid would not fit to allow terminal connections. I called my Chevy Dealer and they wanted $172.00 for a new Delco maintenance free battery. I cut holes in the battery lid where the filler caps are and all is fine.

Colorado's seem to have more vampire draws than a Halloween pot luck. I put a yellow Optima battery in mine.

Send me your social security number, your pin number and your pants size too
Did GM just take over this forum? I honestly hope you're kidding when you ask people for their personal details. We don't know who you are!

Christina is cool, it's okay--just don't post your information in the forum itself, only by e-mail, and if you are in doubt about who is asking for info, ask your hosts.
