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. It resolved it self. Then the next day I went out and vehicle was stuck in 4WD L. I also started to have problems with multiple lights on the dash including the radio, gauges, and It even did not start once. I notice when my feet move on the driver side where the gas pedal is the dash lights, radio, etc will dim. How would I best dry the electrical. I assume I'm shorting some of my electrical. I'm thinking possible water got under the seat where there is an electrical conduit where wires are running. Any help would be appreciated!!!!

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: 2006 Chevy Colorado - I got a significant of water in cab on flr

This happened to me. Problem is that the wiring and transercase ECM under the floor mats are not weather sealed. To fix the 4X4 ECM youll need to take up all the flooring and sound proffing. They hold a lot of water and never real dry out. Next to replace the ECM its easyest to take out the drivers seat. Four blots hold it to the floor. The black box under the seat (under the floor mates) is the ECM for the transfer case. Replace that and get the conections in the wireing dry and you should be good.

water is like air it goes through the tinniest hole. it could be coming from your windshield seal. if it is the pass footwell area it could be your heater core. I hope it is not the heater core but if it is the water will smell sweet and fog your windshield when on defrost

2006 chevy colorado out of the blue will not start. just makes clicking sound. Started it drove out of garage shut it off. Went back out 5 minutes later won't start. Clock even reset.


Sounds like a bad battery. A number of chain auto parts stores will check it and your charging system free. Before that, if your battery has removable caps, check the water level, if it's down, fill to the bottom of the fill rings and charge the battery, if you have a battery hydrometer, all the cells should have about the same charge level, if one or more show a lot lower than the others, battery is probably bad. Hope this helps.

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.
