#442 of 671 Chevy Colorado Window and Lock Problems
May 24, 2011 (7:15 pm)
I have the same problem as everyone else, a 2004 Colorado, with power windows and door locks working intermittently. I replaced the switch module with no change in the problem. I checked the voltage as described in another post here. Disconnected the battery overnight. Often, when the door is open, everything works. After hearing about the chafing of the wires being a problem, I tried lifting up on the rubber tube where the wiring enters the door from the engine compartment. When I lift up, everything works. When I press down on the tube, nothing works. What's the best way to access all these wires going through the door into the engine compartment to see if they are chafed? Can I pull out the tube and the wires to be able to examine them?

Hello I was wondering i have a lot of troubles with my colorado she's a 2007 and I'm having a lot of wiring issues first it started with the brake being applied and then the signal lights would click and blink had it to the dealership they said they checked the wiring and found nothing after a while then my heater only worked on number 4 again took it back and they said a plug was bad so they changed it about a week later it went again took it back they said that the resister is burnt and would have to be replaced,they ordered it and before I took it to have it put on my son's foot hit the wiring under the dash and then the heater worked I checked out the plug and there seems to be nothing melted or burnt it's just a loose wire in the resister now when i get in I move it and my heater works fine,then I had to end up replacing the gas nozzle going to the tank for when I pumped gas it work start then stop and I had to keep squeezing the gas in slowly,Then the ABS fault light came on the said I had a bad sensor they replaced it and on my way home the road had slush on them and the light for the ABS came on I called the dealer he told me it was because the sensor got wet not to worry about it and it's still on,The other day I got into the truck and my tire pressure light came on and doesn't shut off and not sure why pressure is fine and tires are fine,next i went to town and when I shut off my truck the radio stopped working and I couldn't roll up my window and the dome light stayed on and before that the radio always stayed on for a bit and you could roll the windows up or down before you actually opened the door on the truck...Now when I put the truck into drive the doors no longer lock and it's telling me there is a door opened I got out and slammed the doors and it's still telling me the same thing...the dome light stays on for 10 to 15 minutes after you start the truck....And she keeps blowing out low beam headlights...Also when you put your foot on the brake the lights all go dim inside and out.. Also my friend has a canyon and he has had all the troubles I'm having and just uses his truck for yard work he got tired of taking it tto the dealer I'm so discussed with this please help.

Pulling wires? bending cables? putting in patch cords? waiting for an full moon while rubbing your lucky rabbits foot? don't know about the rest of you but my stripped down 07 colorado was around $17,999.99 new? I know the "decked out" versions are more, seems alot to spend to have to go thru all this B.S.!!
When 99.9% of these posts with almost all the same problems point to the??? anyone..?anyone..? Buhler..? Buhler..?? THE WIRING HARNESS!!!!!! BUT the good 'ol boys down at Govt. Motors just won't admit it!!!!

The government doesn't own or run GM and is currently shedding its minority share.
I only mention this so that you might direct your justifiable annoyance in the proper direction

I would like to set up a case with GM Customer Assistance. In order to start the process I will need your complete contact information (including full name, mailing address and phone number), VIN, current mileage and involved dealership sent to me in an email. Also, could you please provide a brief description of the problems you are experiencing?

After reading all these posts, I guess I'm the newest member of the Disgruntled Colorado Owners Club. I have an 06 Colorado with 23,764 miles and the driver window doesn't work. Crap like this shouldn't happen with so few miles on it!!!

Just curious, are you guys on commission? Do you get some kind of perk for every Colorado and Canyon owner that you can steer towards a dealer? If you care about your (former) customers, why not post a solution to this ongoing and reoccuring problem?

We do not get paid based on comission. I cannot post technical information because I am not a mechanic. I understand that your experiences are simular; however, it doesn't mean the same thing will fix your concerns. I cannot tell you "X" will fix your vehicle with out looking at the vehicle. This is why I recommend "at least" having the vehicle diagnoised by a dealer.

Christina, thanks for the reply, I understand you are not a tech, but it would be nice to have someone with some technical knowledge address the problem from the company that created the problem in the first place.
After 450+ posts and 5 years it's pretty obvious there is some basic flaw with the design of the Colorado/Canyon wiring and/or computers. It really would be nice if Chevy would admit to this ongoing problem, address it and find a real fix.
