Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 chevy Colorado when it gets cold out it will start but stalls with in seconds wont restart unless you let it set for 10 minutes then start and stall again repeatly but only in cold weather other than that it runs fine what causes no start when cold

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

Check engine light on but only stalls at idle

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Colorado yourself? What have you tried so far?

Had it put on a snap on scope engine codes po300 po449 po601 p1682 none of these codes keep it from running when its warm

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it

from the sounds of this the ignition switch is bad which houses the theft key code reading

that will cause this to shut for for @ 10 minutes or so

on these replacing the ignition switch should fix that issue
