Chevy colorado: no start, no crank – Auto Repair Chat

Surplus electronic parts : https://epartsconnect.com

In this video I come into work early because I started to second guess a diag I made on a Chevy Colorado. It wont crank over and I was 99% sure it was the ignition switch. I rerun through my steps just to confirm then make the call and replace the ignition switch as well as relearn the security system. -Enjoy!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Solomon Green says:

    What if this still doesn’t work?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Byron Ramey says:

    I just seen that the airbag light stays on. My truck has the half doors that open backwards. My truck has the same thing going on and I found that if I open and slam the back doors the light will stay out. Has always been like this. I think it may be because the safety restraint system has the seat belts in the back doors.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fullgazthrottle says:

    Fantastique vidéo très professionnel quoique c’est en anglais mais pour un amateur de mécanique ou autre c’est très bien expliquer le plus compliqué c’est l’enlèvement du module du air bag le reste c’est très facile mais le plus important c’est l’explication du début qui explique la raison du problème qui exige le remplacement du commutateur de démarrage chose pas toujours évidente merci dans mon mon cas cela a résolu mon problème.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Pappas says:

    So I followed you, finished it up and turned it over but no crank???? Going to wait the 10 minutes and see

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars danilo albi says:

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars corceil Howard says:

    Would this be the same for the 06 monte carlo SS 5.3 LS4 V8?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Douglas Ferree says:

    Followed your instructions on removal and reinstalling the switch. Everything went well. For some reason I didn't have to reset the security system. It started on the first crank and stayed running. Restarted and ran every time I tried it since. Thanks for your informative video!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich Provence says:

    Your videos are awesome! Very helpful. But i think I’m having this same issue with my 2010 Chevy cobalt. No crank, no start, dash lights and everything gets power, but when key is turned to RUN/ON , dash lights go out then when I release the key, dash lights come back on, what can this be?? Please help 🙁 *all fuses get power*

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Ledger says:

    great video was wonderin why the airbag light was still on Thanks

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Conrad says:

    Eric, I have a 2006 Chevy Colorado that I bought new and the steering column never has locked. Now I know why – the lock mechanism is removed! Why would GM choose to disable the locking steering column?
    Great video! Thanks for showing how to reset the security system.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Freeman says:
