Eliz Jacks,
i bought my chevy equinox 05 used and it was having the same problem with the condensation in the headlights, its been a while, but i contacted Chevrolet and they assisted me with getting to a dealership and had the headlights replaced at a considerable discounted rate, so i was pleased and it was well worth the less than $200 that i had to come out of pocket.
I have a general question...when you purchased your Chevy did it come with a key for the door? I have a keyless entry remote and 2 keys for the ignition, but no key for the door and it has been 2 yrs since i've had the truck, never realized there was no key for the door until i started having problems with the keyless remote, i cant enter the vehicle when the remote is dead. This seems weird, that there is no standard key for the vehicle.
The door key and the ignition key are the same key. I have a key made from code and it fits both. However, the keys I use all the time are worn and do not open the door. I have to get new keys made.

I went through a car wash today and about 15 min after my equinox didn't want to drive. I had the gas to the floor and it slowly picked speed up. The check engine,servce engine and TC light stays on. I took it to Sears ans they said maybe a sensor got wet bc it showed 20 things wrong and pointing at the transmission. They told me to let the sensor dry out before I take it to a transmission shop. Whats your thoughts? Its been 3hrs as of 5:25pm and still same way. Never had prob before this
Just after we purchased our Equinox we had a similar problem. It is a "fly by wire" control system. When they came to pick it up. The tow truck driver put the key in the ignition and it started right up. We found that the problem was in the fly by wire module, it was replaced and has been fine ever since. Turn off the car and re-start it resets the carburetor control. My ignition switch, when the key is removed to exit the car that dam bing, bing bell keeps bing, bing, bing won't stop until the door closes.

The wiring harness that powers all of the items in the door (window motor, power mirror, ect) fails because of poor design. The wires break because the wire is too thin and the bend is too tight when the door is closed. The harness cost $200.00, is a nightmare to replace, and the labor is around $150.00 to get the job done professionally.
I need this harness -_- same prob with my 05 I took the cover off and a good 4 of the wires are snapped in half! Ridiculous the wiring in this vehicle is a death trap. Could you give me the part number or point me in the right direction for that harness tho sadly I need my equinox till I get something else.

I have a 2005 Equinox and the oil light came on and at the same time the engine made a loud winding and clicking noise then everything just quit out. I coasted to a stop. The car will not turn over, the starter wont engage, and there is minimal oil. I put oil in. All lights, radio, door ringers and all work. Any guesses?

A few months back I noticed that My driver side door wasnt turning on the cabin light or turning off the radio(the other doors do). Then recently my drivers side window isnt working either. Took it several repair shops and noone seems to know what to do. They have checked the motor,fuses,switch panel and everything is okay. Can someone please help!!! And does anyone else has problems with water in the headlights? Dealer wants to charge $800 to replace and reseal the headlights!!!
Try using some steel wool on the points on the door for electrical contacts ,also cheavys are known for getting all sorts of shorts in wiring harnesses . take the door panel off 10 minute job under the power locks& or window switch there is a connection block take it apart blow it out ,check for corrosion , then spray it with a little bit of silicon spray ,this should remove any moisture ,and probably cure the problem , and just for laughs , humor me and check the bulb in the light , repair shops won't touch anything that doesn't cost a fortune , and that everywhere !
