I took my 2016 Z71 CC in for the HVAC recall and mentioned how the driver side power window doesn't always work (Since I read someone else was having the same problem on the forum) and the guy didn't believe me! And now he just called me and said that three other Colorados are in the shop for the same problem right now and that the part to fix it is ordered. Just wondering who else may be having that problem?
Something that I thought might take a few hours or a day to fix is now going to take until Wednesday :serious:
Luckily they loaned me a '17 Silverado but driving this thing just makes me want my Colorado back even more!

3 more are in the shop for the heater, or the window issue? While the heater is well documented, I have not seen many complaints about the drivers window.

Well if it's the HVAC part and they are saying Wednesday before it's fixed this might mean they need to take the dash apart to fix :(...then again they may just be ordering the clamp, you should verify with them.

If you're talking about the drivers side window, as Toughsox mention, haven't seen many people mention it here before. When you're saying doesn't always work, what exactly doesn't always work...express down feature, express up feature, or that they won't open/shut at times?

The drivers window. What it does is when you try to use the auto roll up, it goes 1/4 the way up and goes back down and it'll do that about three times before actually going up. Minor issue but it started to get really annoying.

He never said anything about that, I believe he is just waiting on the part for my window. The HVAC recall is all fixed.
What the drivers window does it when I use the auto roll up, the window will go 1/4 of the way up and go back down. It usually takes me about three tries to get the window to roll up completely. Minor, but annoying.

10-4 was just wondering. Hope you get your truck back soon. I couldn't stand being without my truck when I had my bumper put on and that took two hours...
Yeah I read the manual before taking it in just to be sure and when I tried that, the problem still happened.
And I know! I dropped it off Monday morning and Im waiting on a call to see if the parts came in for the window today. Im so impatient. They said tomorrow by the latest, but I am hoping its ready today.

I took a video too, just in case. When I went in, the service guy rolled it up just fine and I told him to let me do it and thats when it acted up. My truck doesn't like me lol.
But like I said, he also told me the next day that 3 other Colorados were all in the shop now for the same window issue, all on the drivers side.

I forgot to also say that I did it a few times and it came up on the dash to roll it all the way down to do the relearn and it still had the problem.

Mine never did that but I did just pick it up from the dealer earlier and according the receipt, the cause was "Internal Fault with the left front window motor". I know that sounds pretty obvious but maybe next time you're at the dealer you can say that we were having the same issues and that was the cause when I brought mine in? They "removed and replaced the left front window regulator w/ motor assy. programmed window express feature".

Mine has been doing this for a couple of months, warm or cold temps. Only once did I get the DIC instructions to roll the window down and then back up. I took it to the dealer after the second video and was told they couldn't recreate it (even though I showed them the video) But they would let GM tech know about my complaint. They had to order some other parts and when I brought it back a week later I asked them to look into the window again...they told me that GM tech had a BCM (body control module) update for the window and they did the update. All was well but video #3 is after the update. I think I am going to tell them GM tech needs to check their update.

Back I go I guess...

It's just more annoying than anything. Like I said, when mine was in the shop, 3 other Colorados were getting the same thing fixed. I haven't had any problems luckily. When I get home, I'll take a picture of my receipt and what exactly was done. (If you want?)

I just worry about when the warranty is up how this thing is going to act.

I'd like to see what they did on your receipt. I personally think it's the motor, feeling resistance, and doing its safety drop.
