Yes I have the same problem every few months, if you notice on your dash next time there is a lock symbol over a car, if it blinks on and off this means your ignition is locked (it should be solid light when turning the key) I don't know what the fix is, but plan on letting it sit for 10 minutes (exactly) and it will start, the ignition re-sets after 10 minutes, I've been told its a common problem.

I have been dealing with this no start for over a year Now. And I think I figured it out. Haven't had the problem in over 3 months I quit using that cheap little remote door lock unlock Panic button thing that goes on your key ring. Must have something to do with some pass lock system on the truck. Simple has that. Please post a message if it works For you. Bill

I have been having the same problem with my truck. Is that supposed to be a manufacture problem. my truck also overheats. I have took my truck to the dealer where I bought it and I was told that there was nothing wrong with the truck. I have been taking it to mechanic was charge 475 and still have the same problem.

It is a glitch in the security system. They do not know what it is and have been aware of it for years with both the Chev. Colorado and the GMC Canions. Something sends a mixed signal that the truck has been broken into so the ignition system shuts it down so that it can not be stolen. Well at not for 10 to 20 minutes. Do not understand why there has not been a recall or fix found yet.

Filed complaint months ago, Gm corp says it is not under warranty and what to start swapping part at a few hundred dollars a poop and will not guarantee it will fix issue, Was told I will get the 'discounted' price in writting, but have yet to get anything for a few weeks now.
