The harness at the drivers door is a common problem on the Equinox, you maybe able to fix the wires but it may be less expensive just to replace the harness.

SOURCE: power outlets not working on

Replace the Aux Pwr fuse. On the 2008 Equinox, this fuse is in the fuse block under the hood. It is fuse number 3, 20A (yellow), located on the left side as you're looking it, in the slot immediately forward of the fuse puller tool. Way too late for Kevin256, but I just did this on my daughter's '08 Equinox and it fixed the problem.

Where can i find a 2005 chevy equinox tail light wiring harness ? In store or on line ?


You have a few choices here. Your best bet is your local Chevy dealer. These harnesses are a known problem and they will more than likely have several in stock. you can order them on a site like rockauto.com or ebay. You can also choose to repair the harness yourself. Take the harness into you local parts store like napa, autozone, or Advance and show them the bulb sockets. This will require wiring in the new sockets to the new harness.... preferably by soldering and heat shrinking them back to the new harness. Hope this helps you

Power door lock on chevy equinox does not work on one door how can it be fixed


I had the same problem but on the passenger side door. The wire harness on the passenger side had broken wires. Purple wire was for the lock and thicker blue and darker grey was power for the windows. I used butt connectors to repair and it worked like a charm. Area was tight to work in between vehicle frame and door. Was easier to remove door panel and disconnect harness at vehicle frame and pull harness through door to complete the repair.

Good afternoon....what would cause my 2008 Chevy


It could be the power lock motor. You could have a short or bad wiring harness. Might just be a fuse that connects to both. But since you said it's only the driver side. When the power lock motor is bad it can trigger your alarm because they're wired together.

Hope that helps. Good luck.

How to find fuse for a 2006 chevy equinox driver's power window


power windows are not usually fused. They have a circuit breaker that controls all the windows. So if only one window is not working it is something like a bad switch or window motor. Remove the door panel and unplug the connector to the window motor and check for power and ground when activating the switch.

Check inside wiring by the driver's side door hinge. Remove the rubber boot and you will find broken wires. Make a splice and you are fixed!
