Someone will need to figure out if you are lacking spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors when it won't start.

SOURCE: 2005 colorado , turns over dosent start

This happened on my 06, the first two times i brought it in they said nothing was wrong with it. Well, it kept happening and i noticed that when it did this that the security system light on the dash would blink. 15 mins later i could retry it and it would or wouldnt start right up. Went to the dealership and they had to replace the ignition because it kept engaging the vehicle engine immobilizer.

Check your battery cable ground and starter connections, and be sure battery post cable connections are clean and tight. If they all check out, change starter solenoid, or starter.

Why the anti-thief device is keeping my truck from starting?

I replaced my computer at 53,000 miles and it starts up OK now with an occasional issue with starting like it has crud in the line or something, but the resetting the key after a miss does require the 15 minute wait. Had to do it once since the computer was replaced, but the issue before was the anti-theft system would shut it down after starting every time requiring a tow truck to get it to the shop. $700 for the computer chip replacement.

2007 chevy colorado has problem starting

If the security light is on, the problem is with the Vehicle AntiTheft system. The key with the chip is not being read in the ignition cylinder. Therefore the computer doesn't allow it to be restarted for 10 minutes.

What is the Security Passload Sensor on a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado?

I have an 07 colorado and had this very same problem. Ocassionally i would hop in the truck and stick my key would turn over but not crank. I read numerous threads that is was my crankshaft position you i would wait ten minute and it would crank right up. After i replaced the sensor, 2 weeks later it did it again. Read more a brand new key and took off all of my keys to reduce weight on the ignition cylinder. 2 weeks later it did it again. Finally I figured out that all of those threads were wrong. My passlock light was flashing during those 10 minutes of waiting for one reason!!! My positive battery cable had corrosion on it. Even a little corrosion on your terminal will trick the passlock sensor into thinking the truck is being hacked and will not crank. Take it from me, clean the **** out of your terminal wire the proper wire brush and neutralizer, then coat the terminal and cable connection with a pile of either bearing grease or diode (red) grease to help prevent future corrosion. 4 months later i still havent had the problem come back, and I had it happen over 6 times in two months. Try it and see.

I lost all power in a 2005 Trailblazer. Called GM and they said to kick the key forward and wait 10 min, and this would reset it. It did but now the radio A/C door locks and windows don't work. What...

Do it three times in a row.

1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.

2006 chevy colorado cranks over but wont start

2005 Colorado 4x4 stick shift – I had the same thing happen and it had to do with the passlock system – it will keep your truck from starting for approximately 10 minutes, yes you will have to wait and let it sit- if you try to start it will just turn over forever. On my truck the solution was to change my starting procedure, I now keep the truck in neutral-turn the key all the way for a few seconds and then push in the clutch- it starts every time. If you have an automatic I don’t know..
