I had the stop lamps fail on my 2008 Chevrolet Colorado, there was a recall issued for these trucks from 04-09 but my truck was not included, I called GM and got no where with them as far as taking care of this common problem. There are obviously other Chevrolet Colorado trucks having the stop lamp problem that may not have been recalled and should be.

There is an issue with the driver side headlamp, where it will not work under normal driving conditions. I replaced the headlamps to have the same result. Also replaced the fuse for the lt headlamp with same result. The left headlamp will work in high beam mode but not in normal driving conditions. I tried manually switching on, same result.

The right headlight on the vehicle continually has condensation in it. It has been replaced by dealer twice in 18 or so months. Now it has condensation in it again. It is a Chevrolet Colorado 2008. The truck has not been wrecked or damaged. I'm taking it back to the dealer again in few weeks before the warranty runs out. This problem first appeared with less than 8,000 miles on the truck. The problem happened again within the last 8 months and now it has happened again. The truck now has about 22,000 miles on it.
