Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

The A/C blower control switch doesn't work in positions 2 or 3, but functions properly in positions 1 and 4.

The HVAC fan motor resistor & connector melted around one of the prong connections and wire. The resistor and wire harness are located just under and behind the glovebox on the passenger side. The result of the burning of these parts is that the blower speeds of 1-3 do not work but 4 still functions normally. This problem is more than an annoyance of the fan setting because the cause is melting wires and burning connections near the passenger's feet. Hopefully this connection can be recalled and redesigned before something serious happens. This appears to be a very common issue as evidence from this blog.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr crew cab 2wd. 33,000 miles. ABS errors, trac errors and brake errors for no apparent reason. Today all three errors at same time, one after the other. Happened after driving down street to child's school and back, never going over 25 mph. Trac grinds first, and then ABS engages at low speeds thus far. Known problem for other Colorado owners on site. Chevrolet needs to recall these trucks before someone is hurt. Also heat sensors only allow heat and air to work on high. This happened around the same time we had the initial ABS problem during summer of 2010, although the first time we received no errors for ABS and were clueless as it is intermittent.

2005 Chevy Colorado HVAC fan/diode connector for blower motor. The blower motor has been malfunctioning for the past 12 months. The A/C fan speed finally has stopped working in all speeds except high(4). After searching on line I have found many consumers reporting the same issue. I have searched for listed recalls and have not found any and I feel this issues should be addressed because of the fire risk it poses.
