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. Notes: While the 2005 GMC Canyon doesn't show any major complaint trends, it's mechanically-identical counterpart is the Chevy Colorado which has some engine problems.

2005 GMC Canyon Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 192008


  • 32,460 miles


Air conditioning fan abruptly stopped working on all fan speeds except "4", the highest position. Checked internet for possible solutions and found that there have been numerous failures exactly like mine. All involved the "blower motor resistor assembly, connector and/or wiring harness" shorting out. Scortching the connectors, resistor assembly and causing the plastic to melt/burn. GM parts at local dealership had replacement parts and I was able to resolve the problem. Speaking a GM service advisor, he confirmed that there are numerous repair problems with these parts on the GMC Canyon/ Chevrolet Colorado 2004-2007. But no explanation for why they are failing. Numerous internet reports with photo's showing damage and explaining problem most requiring multiple or repeated repairs. Old parts are available.
