Question about 2006 Chevrolet Colorado
Posted by Anonymous on
It is alternator problem. You can chek it like that, Start the engine and switch on all the lights you have. Then press on the pedal. If lights goes brighter as you press the pedal, then alternator works. If lights doesnt change the brightnes it means that they are working only on battery.

It is possible that the alternator failed and took out the battery. while the vehicle is running disconnect the negative battery cable if the engine dies the alternator is bad.

You need an alternator....well unless your belt came off or got very loose. The truck continued to drive because the battery had enough juice left to run the ignition system, but after you shut it off there was no where near enough to turn the engine over or possibly even run the starter. The battery will have to be charged and a new alternator installed.
Hope this helps.

Some of the 03 Tahoe's have an issue with the Crankshaft position sensor that causes it to stall or not crank at all. Have someone check the Crankshaft position sensor.

Regulator in alternator obviously faulty, have it bench tested & fixed or replace alternator, and cure your problem.
