Holden colorado engine won't start

Colorado attempting to retreive a bogged vehicle off beach. Colorado got stuck and had tide come in. Waves splashed up side of vehicle, but interior of vehicle remained dry. Both vehicles were retreived by tractor. Horn blared on colorado for a couple of seconds after being pulled out of ocean. Drove colorado 5 kms then stopped - engine idling to thank generous farmer.2 mins later horn blared - unstoppable - removed fuse. Engine idled then stopped. Never restarted - got towed home. Any ideas as to why engine will not start?

the first place to start is the flashing engine lite. that means cylinders are not firing at all or improperly and driving it like that for even short period could cause heavier damage. particularly valves and cat converter(s) the computer really needs to be scanned for codes in order to proceed. did the oil lite come on before or after engine quit. after engine quit would be normal cause it stalled. its possible that it needs spark plugs and/or coils. or more

SOURCE: 2006 Chevy Colorado - I got a significant amount of water on the floor of the vehicle. removed the water with a shopvac. Later I drove the vehicle and noticed it automatically changed from 2WD to 4WD.

Locate the IP to body harness connector, THIS CONNECTOR IS UNDER THE DASH HIGH UP ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE. Check to see if there is a water leak into the area and repair as necessary. Use a water hose to determine the source of a water leak and effectiveness of repair. Some examples of potential water leaks are: A-pillar seals, sunroof drain lines (if so equipped) and windshield/cowl sealing. Finally, repair or replace the IP to body harness connector, making sure no corrosion or debris is left on or between the terminals.

IT IS ADVISABLE THAT YOU REMOVE THE INTERIOR CARPETING AND DRY IT THROUGHLY. IT WILL MOLD AND SMELL REALLY BAD AFTER A FEW DAYS IN THE HEAT.

USE A WATER HOSE STARTING LOW AND WORKING YOUR WAY UP TO DETERMING WHERE THE LEAK IS. OR USING A FOAMING TYPE WINDOW CLEANER SPRAY IT WHERE YOU THINK THE LEAK MIGHT BE AND USE COMPRESSED AIR FROM THE INSIDE ON THE TRUCK FOLLOWING THE SEAMS AND WINDSHIELD.

SOURCE: Rough idle

I had the same exact problem on my 2004 Colorado (3.5L). Cleaned the MAF sensor (with MAF sensor cleaner) and throttle body/plate - cleared it right up.

SOURCE: Isuzu Big Horn (Trooper) 4JX1 engine.... Vehicle

Sends a signal related to the rail pressure as a voltage to the ECM. 3 wire connector :

  • Red : 5V (Feeds from ECM connector J1-4) Shared with MAP sensor, EGR pressure sensor and accellerator position sensor.(compare values from these sensors and ECM connector)
  • Black : Ground (Feeds from ECM J2-22) Shared with the same sensors mentioned above
  • White : Signal feeds to ECM connector J2-22
Low pressure will set P1194 error code. Oil rail pressure should be more than 3MPa when cranking

Also check Engine coolant temp sensor and wiring. Engine coolant to manifold temp should not differ by more than 5 deg C either way after 8 hours of no operation. I have found the same symptom on these diesels with fuel supply problems. Operate the priming pump (on top of the fuel filter) until it becomes diffycult to push down before starting or checking anything else.

2008 Holden Colorado wont start and no dash lights


Check your ecm fuse, or your main power relay fuses, basically just check all the fuses under the dash and under the hood, if there are a few relays under the hood, you can try and swap the ac relay with the power relay as long as they have the same numbers on them. If all the fuses are good, it is most likely a relay, or the ignition switch itself

Hey I got a holden Colorado rs petrol 2wd ute , no spark , is there a flow chart ?


I am not sure what engine you have - newer vehicles have such good "On-Board Diagnostics" the best place to start is by hooking up a Diagnostic readout device.
Make sure it is not something simple like a broken timing belt?

its no jeep, at all, not even in the ball park.....
my wild guess is its really and Isuzu engine.
find real engine , maker and designation, and fixing it is much easier.
Get an FSM from your dealer?

Out of the blue my chevy colorado won't start if i disconnect the battery then hook it reconnect after a couple minutes it will start


does the unit crank after it fails? I would check all of my battery connections you may have a loose ground either at the battery or at the engine. You may also have a bad starter relay located un the fuse panel under the hood

My 2006 chevy colorado is making a clicking sound and won't turn over


Your Main Battery is Flat, get a jump start if its safe or remove the battery and hook it up to a charger. Maybe you left your lights on, or your alternator isnt charging the battery properly when your driving around. Sometimes this can be the bushes located in the alternator.
