Question about 2005 Chevrolet Colorado
I have a co-worker friend who has a 2005 Chevy Colorado pickup truck. She is experiencing an intermittent problem with starting the pickup. On some mornings, she says the engine will just turn over and over, but won't ever fire and start. Another mechanic friend thought it might be one of the relays, and so she changed it out, but still is having problems sometimes. It seems there is no rhyme or reason to the engine not starting, or firing. Could this be a bad starter problem, and perhaps have nothing to do with the relays or fuses? This is really annoying to her... she is a single mom and does not have a lot of time (or money) to be wasting on trying to track down the root of the problem. Just trying to narrow it down for her...

I've had this problem for about a year now. When this happens, turn key to acc position and leave it for 10 minutes until the pass-lock light either stops blinking or goes out. Then turn off key and restart your truck. I have seen somewhere that if you do this 3 times consecutively, it will re-program the "brain" but I have not tried this yet. Good luck!

I've had the same problem and i believe it's something to do with the pass lock anti theft system

Have an 04 colorado, 1.8 L. Situation worse with cold weather. Have to lock door, unlock with key, to get it to turn over, not start. At times, will start for 1 second. Passlock light was steady on, now flashing. Have 4 codes dealing with P0606 ECM/PCM Processor, P0601 Internal Control Module Memory Check Sum Error. The others are TPS related. Any suggestions???
