Caron and all GM/ Chevy Reps,
I feel for you. You have an impossible job. The engineers designed (or didn't design)and built a loser of a truck and the company doesn't back their products. How many people have an ABS issue?? I traded in a 9 year old Acura with 142000 miles that just started to show mechanical wear (only brakes and tires replaced). My 2006 Colorado has had problems at 32000mi and others since (now at 53000) including rain leaks in at the windshield (puddle on the floor) and back window, ABS with shuttering loss of brakes, short in the brake light assembly, the 4WD locks in and won't go back into 2WD when selected (until it desides to) and premature rear brake wear due to a faulty parking brake design. When I went on disability I traded in my older car to get a new 2006 Colorado for reliable transportation, but got nothing but lip service from service managers and head aches with fear of losing my life on the road. Manager said, "I get hundreds of vehicles in here each week and they all leak somewhere." Now why did Chevy almost go into Bankruptcy and need a US bail out? What a waste of tax payer's money. I thought that I should support the US, but who supports us? Might as well sell out to Japan or Korea; Chevy sold out.

Has anyone had their '06 Colorado not start in the rain on several occations due to the truck's anti- theft system shutting down the ignition or fuel pump?

So far I've had no issues with the ABS as of yet. No check engine light or codes. I do have to say fuel mileage is down. Friend told me faulty thermostat could be the problem. Will be replacing within a couple weeks and see what happens.

This happened to me the other day got the ABS fault message so i turned off the truck and turned it back on and the problem was fixed, now the check engine light is on and i had it checked and these are the codes i got B0040, B0221, B0895, V1000, V102e,V1064,P0300, most of these related to the rf wheel speed sensor, rf anti lock brake, device 1 voltage low, class 2 data link, loss of class 2 something???, lost communication with body and misfire, does anyone know how to fix this and how much it cost.

Here is the way I would approach this.
First based on the poor history these sensors on Colorados and Canyons, it is probably a right front wheel sensor dirty, or adjustment, or occasionally defective.
Rather than throw expensive parts at it like most dealerships will do, I suggest that you try to narrow it down first. I would clear all of the codes and reset the ABS controller. Then the moment you get a new ABS light have the codes checked again. Hopefully this time you will not so many codes to deal with. Also there is a good possibility that after you reset it you may not see the problem again.
To reset all of these simply disconnect the battery for 30 minutes or more (overnight is fine). When reconnecting the battery attach the battery cable and immediately tighten it again. The computers (ABS, PCM and BCM) do not like the power flickering off and on, so connect the cable once and do not let it bounce around during reconnection.
If it is a bad sensor it is entirely possible the is is just dirty or out of adjustment. Most dealerships will not tell you this as they make more money replacing it. Clean the sensor and pick up with brake cleaner. Then tap slightly in on the sensor to make sure it is seated all the way. That is usually all that is wrong with these.
If it turns out to be a bad sensor, the sensor is available WITHOUT the hub assembly from GM. Replace the sensor WITHOUT the hub. It is a much cheaper repair. Most GM dealerships will tell you that you need a new hub assembly when cleaning or replacing the sensor is all that is needed.
