Well it finally happened to me. Went to wash my car and when I was done the &$@# thing wouldn't start. Called Chevrolet & they had it flatbeaded to dealer. That was 2 weeks ago. They have the car running now but won't let me have it until they get a new air bag module. Can't find out why it takes 2 weeks to get a air bag module. They won't let me take it because of the liability issue. They gave me a rental truck at my request because I just moved to a another house that my wife and I are renovating. Well my wife liked having a truck so well that we went and bought a new Colorado crew cab Thursday night. Got the new 5 cylinder engine, the 4 didn't have enough guts to get out of it's own way. Meanwhile I am having serious withdrawls. Hoping to get the car back today or tomorrow.

Nevada's lemon law says it has to have the same problem 3 times within the warranty period. I love this car anyway. I am hoping to get it back today but I am not holding my breath.

What was wrong with it? Why did they have to replace the air bag module?

They got the car running, never told me what was wrong but they pulled all the codes and found a bad air bag module. Won't let it leave because of liability issues.

Just a quick question: did you wash the engine?

Never washed the engine. Probably unplugged when they were replacing the air bag module. I'll consider the trade.......no...thanks anyway.
