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.

2010 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #6

Aug 082015


  • 47,000 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Colorado. The contact stated that the vehicle failed to start at random times. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure, but the vehicle was repaired with unknown parts. When the contact retrieved the vehicle, it was unable to start and was left at the dealer for six weeks. The issue recurred a second time and the dealer diagnosed that the battery had low voltage and needed replacement. The battery was replaced. The issue recurred a third time. The vehicle was taken to the dealer again, but was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the issue. The failure mileage was 47,000.

Airbag warning light stays on when engine is running. Google searched and found dozens of repeated explanations of the cause on vehicle & model years on each side of mine. The wiring from the body to the small rear extended cab door is too short and breaks as the door is used. One of the wires is in the airbag circuit and the indicator illuminates when the wire breaks. Upon looking under the rubber wire protection boot between the body & the door, it clearly revealed insufficient wire length to accommodate the door actuation. Clearly a design error and should be corrected by the manufacturer. No campaign on it per the dealer service advisor.

Brake lights and cruise control do not work. Checked fuses and they were good. Likely due to faulty brake switch. There is a recall out for this issue but it does not cover the 2010 model.

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Colorado. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the low air pressure warning light continuously illuminated. The tire pressure was checked and was accurate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for a diagnostic testing, they replaced one wheel sensor and re-programmed the computer. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 79,000.
