The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Colorado. The contact attempted to lock the vehicle using the keyless remote when the anti-theft alarm began sounding abnormally. He was able to enter the vehicle and when starting, the alarm ceased. He then attempted to manually lock the front driver door but to no avail. He stated that the failure would recur whenever he would attempt to operate the front drivers side door. The vehicle was not taken for examination or repaired. The failure and current mileage was 45,000.

I have a 05 Colorado. Extended cab 4X4 w/ 14,200 miles. I am the original owner. More than once I have had trouble with the driver side window won't go down and the door locks do not work. This problem is very annoying, frustrating and time consuming. It is not an uncommon problem, check out the on line forms related to Colorado's. my dealer checked for recalls and tsbs with out help. I am very disappointed in GM as they know this is an issue, but they don't want to or seem to have an answer. Four years ago I had the option to by foreign but bought american instead.

I have an 05 four door Colorado. In my years of owning it, I have S had several episodes in which the driverside window won't go down and the door locks do not work. This problem has taken up to a month or so for the truck's computer or what ever to work out the problem and start working normally. I have been to the dealer and they say they can't help except for a new switch which costs $200. I have also checked out various automotive forums and found multiple people having the same issue and having it multiple times. I have checked for recalls and tsbs with out help. GM knows this is an issue, but they don't want to or seem to have an answer. I paid good money for this truck and did not expect a four year old to have multiple electric episodes like this.
