Question about 2005 Chevrolet Colorado

2 Answers

I have a 2005 Colorado, my niece saw the buttons with 2 and 4 and started pressing them before I realized what she was doing. Now my truck only functions in 4 wheel drive, and the lights for that function aren't displaying. What can I do, as a Mom with little knowledge of trucks, cars. Very little money to fix, help!

Will not lock. and driver window will not go up or down

Just saw it on here. Remove both terminals from your battery, then touch the 2 terminals(from the truck without the battery touching them). This will short the system and reset any codes. Replace terminals and try your windows again.

One of three things is happening:

1. The starter or ignition solenoid is wearing out and while you, the truck's owner, have adapted to the 'trick' of making it start without difficulty without realizing it, whereas the other driver just tries to start it like any other vehicle...

2. The other driver subconsciously dislikes the truck and wants to replace it with something else, and in an act of unconscious passive-aggression is deliberately doing it wrong without realizing...


3. Your truck has become sentient and decided it likes you best. If this is the case, give it a name, pat it on the hood when it's driven a long way, remind it that it is a good truck, and a pretty truck, have its' oil changed extra regularly, clean the corrosion from the battery terminals with some vinegar and buy it a new starter and ignition solenoid for its' birthday. That should cheer it up and solve the problem.

Colorado 2005 3.5l start and not crank when the engine is off 30 minute at hot no fault. fuel pressure is good.Crank sensor is new.Start 2 times and engine crank. Eric Tank you

If this problem only occurs after shutdown when hot, check temperature sending unit. This is usually first thing to prevent starting until engine is completely cooled down.

If you put the tail gate down, there is 2 screw (phillips) that holds the tail light in place. Remove them & you can twist the bulb out. Thats it, put back together in reverse. Hope this helps.
