Chevy Says Don’t Worry

This bulletin applies to 2007-2014 Chevy Equinox vehicles. Technicians may diagnose the following two conditions on propeller shafts as concerns or issues:


Frozen Spark

Owners of 2013 Chevy Spark vehicles may comment on the A/C blowing warm air intermittently out of the ducts when driving at highway speeds and more noticeably on longer commutes with high humidity.


History Mistake

This bulletin applies to 2010-2013 Chevy Equinox. A technician may note history DTCs stored immediately after vehicle service if the ECM wakes up (activates) while a 5-volt reference sensor is unplugged and the ignition is off. This may occur on any 2010-2013 vehicle that requires the GDS2 scan tool to establish vehicle communication.


Stubborn Spark

This bulletin applies to 2013-2014 Chevy Spark vehicles. According to Motologic’s site, a dealer technician may not be able to perform the BCM Setup or Config using GDS2 after adding options (i.e. fog lamps) and/or programming/updating the BCM software. A no-comm message may be found or the procedure cannot be completed.


Chevy Tow No-No

Some owners of a 2001 Chevy Traverse may request the installation of a Tow/Haul Switch on a vehicle that was not built with a Trailer Provision.


Noisy Cruze

This bulletin applies to 2014 Chevy Cruze vehicles. A customer may note a fluttering or thumping noise from the side or underneath the vehicle at speeds of 45 mph and above.


Chevy Rattle

This bulletin applies to 2009-2010 Chevy HHR vehicles. According to GM, “in rare instances” a technician may comment that they hear a short, sharp rattle noise from the front of the engine at start-up. Codes P0011, P0014, P0016 or P0017 may also be set.


Popping Camaro

Owners of 2010-2014 Chevy Camaros may comment about a popping noise (intermittent or multiple) from the rear of the vehicle after a cold start (this may also occur during an EVAP purge event).


GM Ajar Message

This bulletin applies to 2013 Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles built before 9-6-2012. The customer may experience an intermittent theft deterrent alarm, horn or hood ajar message.
