Colorado 2016 Wants to Stall in first gear?

Postby JohnDee68 » Sun May 20, 2018 8:37 am

Hi Guys,
Just asking for a friend.
He has a Colorado 2016 that has been back MANY time to a Dealer for this ongoing issue. yet they cant seem to resolve it.

Unlike others he has had, also people I know who have had Colorado's. This one seems apparently to be a "LEMON" due to a unfix-able fault?

It wants to stall when in first gear. Not so much idling, but like you required to ride the clutch when you use first gear. it might even be as you take off at the lights, get to the center of the intersection and it'll actually stall. making it dangerous and annoying to the driver and other road users.

I, with little experience in the software of OBD2 and it's car sensors. Was wondering IF this may be a software or a sensor causing the motor to cut out at these times?

Any thoughts from those with the experience of Colorado's and software causing similar issues, please let me know your thoughts.

Thank you,

So I can assume it's been scanned and nothing shows up. I would look at live data and if possible log it and have a look at whats happening when it occurs.

As it appears to be a “one off fault” with this vehicle points towards a failed component or installation.
A log will hopefully show something that doesn’t look right and narrow it down, but with complexity of vehicles today and interaction between everything it could be nearly anything. Faulty ECU, poor ground, noisy alternator, damaged wiring, sensors, etc, etc.
At least appears to be semi repeatable so should be able to get a log.
