Intermittant Multiple Cylinder Mis-fire:
I experienced an Intermittant Multiple Cylinder Mis-fire that occured abruptly and continued until I replaced the exhaust valve cam position sensor. I performed this repair based on a OBDll code and chose to replace it since the other referenced sensors were not available at the local parts store. I immediately started the truck after replacement and had no further issues. The next morning I drove the truck about 5 miles and the same exact syptoms occured again. I parked the vehicle for about 20 minutes while I went into the store, came out and it ran perfectly fine since. I have noticed though that the power doors locks do not function and the drivers window is inop. Any ideas? I have reviewed the blogs posted and have noticed a number of discussion on the GM Cylinder Head issue , though have a hard time believing it could be the same. I also believe there is a GM issue for the door locks and window though have not seen anything.

First check on helper side under the glove box
you see an ovale connector with 4 wire on
disconnect the connector and check the third connector must be burn
small wire terminal is stock on GM dealer
Second: on the heater housing (where the connector was placed) you have a think call blower resistor remove the 2 screw (one each side ) and check if the any resistor (curl wire ) broke or in the resistor you got a diode (must be blow)
if there one those thing broke , change the resistor aroud 15.00 $ /auto part
or 45.00$ GM dealer
hope everything help you

Check on your Rear driver side door ther is a rubber tube where the wire pass trouw
wire must be cut inside
check all wire
remove your rear door panel and remove one clip (one who hold the harness)
when you open the door wire inside is to short and broke
there 6 wire check them all 2 for the door switch
2 for speakers and two other for belt tensionner

#65 of 684 Re: Air Bags [gmrozowski]

Breaks on or off have nothing to do with the Air Bag system. There is a trigger in the front of the truck responsible for firing the air bag. In some instances, the angle of the impact fails to give this device enough force to trigger it. But more likely, it was just a bad sensor. In a '95, it's been exposed to the environment for 13 years. Moisture, and especialy if combined with salt (snow belt??) can cause the parts to just short out, causing the trigger voltage to short to ground through the corrosion.
Just a thought, The mechanic spoke as an expert, without knowledge on this subject??? Try another mechanic!!

I took my 2005 colorado truck in with the same problem today. Here is the bad news it will cost me 150.00 bucks to repair. They have to replace some sort of resistor , switch and the electrical wiring harness. They tell me there is a short that occurs in the wireing and it ends up melting the harness. The GM certified mechanic told me this is a problem that they have with colorado's and trailblaizers which I have one of those as well. The repair time is about one hour.

you may write to the wrong member
i spoke about the wire cut on rear door (ext cab) the belt trigger wire was cut on rubber cover (open circuit on belt tensionner )air bag light on
second im not an expert like you said , but the air bag device need decelleration in an amount of time
bettwen 0.4 to 4.0 G in less than 0.65 second
i got a driver driving a Chevrolet silverado 2500 4x4 2007 who lost control on a gravel road at 70MPH
hit a rock, lost the front right suspention and tire goes off , jump 15 feet in the air and finish is ride on pine tree. The front frame was bed 5 inch to the right, the rear differential goes off the center pin, the rear frame was bend enough, the rear box broke the rear glass NO air bag deploy ,you know why
the GM tech came at your shop an scan the ecm
answer : not enough deceleration in time required
You talk about force i think there enough force there to bent the truck but not enough to deploy the air bag
