SOURCE: 2006 chevy colorado passlock comes on and stays

No, it can not be disabled.
The theft system is indicating a short term theft issue.
Have you added any "after market" remote start systems or alarms?
If NO.
Insert the key in the ignition, turn the key to run position ( do not start ) and leave it in that position for 10 minutes. Cycle the key to LOCK position, count to 10, then turn the key back to run position and leave on for 10 more minutes. After the 10 minutes is up, repeat the procedure (1) more time and the security system will relearn the PASS code.
Give it a try and let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: replace brake pads on chev. colorado pick-up

90% of the time the sequence is identical.

Slacken wheelnuts.
Jack up and support on axle stand.
Remove roadwheel.

There should be two bolts holding the brake caliper on - usually on the inside.
Slacken both, but only remove the lower one.
The caliper should then be able to swing up pivoting on the top bolt.
You can remove this top bolt, but support the weight of the assembly with wire to the suspension spring - so as not to stress the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and clean the areas the pads seat on.

Push back the pistons. Some require a special tool, most make do with a wooden packer and suitable large lever - or G clamp.

Fit new pads. Pay particular attention to any fitting clips, springs, rods or pins that are needed.

With new pads in, swing down caliper into position. Fit new attatchment bolts or use a threadlock on fixings. & tighten.

Still with wheel off, depress brake pedal to activate brakes - & check for leaks and working.
With foot off brake, check hub turns with no problems.
Refit wheel and repeat for other side.

ALWAYS replace brakes in axle pairs.

Hope this helps.

Why is the ignition key not turning to start my 2006 chevy colorado? Also the stering column will not lock when turned. this occurred suddenly after parking the vehicle. I am unable to start the ve


I assume you have kids and that's why you want to lock it and keep it secured either your kids jammed something in that ignition switch and messed something up. So I would take a good flash light and peer down into that key ignition hole and see if anything is blocked in there. if so or a bad ignition switch, you need disconnect the battery and remove the bottom dash plate from the steering wheel and you will have to disconnect the ignition cable from the ignition switch and take out the ignition by unscrewing the securing screws that hold that ignition in, best to get a mechanic book made for that make and model.

2006 chevy colorado has power wont crank


Do you have a security light flashing in the dash when you try to start it, does the starter spin the engine for but not start it up? Have you tried spraying fuel into the intake during cranking? Do you have spark? Any fault codes? All this can be the problem and other things as well, have them all eliminated as the cause.

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.

Truck want start sometimes, have to wait for about 10 mins then it will start. took it to the dealer they cant find anything wrong .can you help me? i have a 2006 chevy colorado.


Check to see if there is a light on the dash that says "security" or "antitheft" or a picture of a car with a lock thru it when this happens again. The fact that the truck starts after 10 minutes makes me think its a failing antitheft system disabling either your starter or fuel injectors. This is actually a VERY common GM problem.
