Thanks for the link. I will file a complaint tomorrow. Its getting late and I am sick to my stomach seeing all of these issues posted all over the place and my truck has most of the issues. It was a scary ride when the brakes failed. Then it was more scary that the issue comes and goes. I have never had so many issues on one vehicle.

I'm so sorry that your experiencing this potentially dangerous concern with your brakes! It looks like it is happening quite frequently at this point - for a dealer to diagnose, they need to be able to duplicate the problem if there aren't any codes. Let us know if you decide to go in! We're available to help in any way we can.

Thank you for reviewing and responding to my message. I am glad that a representative from General Motors is clearly aware of my situation, in the event of a serious incident. I am not able to duplicate the problem for the dealer to diagnose. If the problem comes up again and the code registers, I will take it to a dealer. Unfortunately I will have to select a dealer farther from home. The owner of the dealer closest to me is a close social acquaintance, and I am confident that the situation will not be a pleasant one. I do not want to harbor bad feelings about him, his family, or his business every time I go to a soccer game, the swim club, a school event, or even at church on Sunday, because of issues out of his control or the products that he sells. I will select a reputable dealer that I have no personal ties to so I can be objective in my decisions and actions during the process. I drove the truck all weekend and the brakes did not fail. Its like driving a ticking time bomb and having no idea how much time is left or when it might go off. Sounds dramatic, but thats how it feels. Sarah, you did mention that you would be available to help any way you can. In what ways do you feel that you can help in a situation like this?

As you begin to work with a service department, we would set up a Service Request through our department which would allow us to interact with your dealership to follow the progress on the repair, and if there is not a satisfactory resolution to perhaps send the case to your district specialist for further assistance. Our primary goal is to get vehicle concerns remedied through this process.
I hope this helps to clarify our role. If you have further questions or would like to start the Service Request process, you can reach us at socialmediagm.com

If I e-mailed you my VIN number, is it possible for you to obtain the list of dealer completed service work on my truck since it was new? I am curious to see what dealership service or warranty work work was done and if any of the work done is associated with the issues that I am experiencing. I see many other owners have issues at low miles and I am wondering if mine did too.
Thank you for your time,

Good morning marroe,
I'm sorry - I am unable to disclose that information. I would be able to check into any existing recalls that are open and associated to your vehicle, but would not be able to discuss past service history prior to your taking ownership of the vehicle.

I suggest that you go to one of the Colorado forums and ask for help. coloradofans.com is a good one.
www.355nation.net is another.
A quick comment on your listed problems. The heater fan is usually a burned connection on the resistor block or a bad ground wire connection on the right inner fender. If it is a 2004 an AC cooling problem there is a fix posted there for the temperature sensor on the evaporator. The rough idle is usually cured by cleaning the throttle body. It could be other things like a coil pack or a valve but clean the throttle body first. The ABS problem is usually cured by tapping on the back side of the failing sensor and re-seating it back where it belongs. You can get more detailed info on these common problems at the above sites.

The only thing that GM Customer Service can do is monitor your repairs after you have taken it to a Chevrolet dealer for service. The dealer will charge you just for a diagnostic check. The forums can guide you through some of the simple fixes. They have helped me quite a bit. They have no simple answers for an electrical/computer problem which GM should be liable for. The ABS issue is quite scary. If the ABS stopped working, I can live with that. This issue give you no brakes at all. Good Luck.
