Short answer is that I've never seen a dealer charge a customer to hook up and read codes from the ODB2 port.
I think that pretty much defines that particular dealers service department.

The transmission is not designed to require fluid maintenance per the owners manual-ever. That's why there's no user available dip stick.

The cooling system is designed for flush and replace only after 150,000 miles.

Somewhere in your town is a small, affordable and professional garage with an excellent mechanic. Give him or her the list of grievances listed by the dealer and let them work their magic for much less.

You are right, some of what is listed is bunk, some could be real issues.
One that is not real? The steering is electronic assist, no fluid, just synchro-motors. What were they going to flush, your wallet?

I am a firm believer in the factory franchised dealer concept however, there are some that should have their franchises revoked, I think you found a pretty good candidate.

Best of luck.

The first answer from another fixya suggestion;
The U0107 code means the cars computer (ECU) has lost contact with the Throttle Actuator control Module. One possible condition is a loose wire or connection to the control unit on top of the engine.

Key stuck in ignition can sometimes be resolved with liberal use of graphite lock lube.If your key is worn out of specs, you may need a new key from dealer. Before they will cut a new one from scratch, prepare to show ownership of the car with registration papers and proper ID showing same address as Registration.

ECU is designed to deny power to sensitive electronics when battery falls to a certain level. This protects those components from nasty over current effects in the later dying stages of batteries and is something we really want to happen regardless the hassle of the moment.

Be absolutely certain that you understand the actual use of each and every wire leading to the stock radio before mating them [in a bridged fashion] to the new harness for the replacement radio. The actual use must be the same for each wire to be adapted from old to new. If different descriptions are given between OEM and replacement for given wire usage, consult someone more knowledgeable before connecting them together.

The linkage may be blocked by something in its path of travel, unlock direction only. To be sure it isn't just tumbler travel, spray liberal amount of graphite lock lube into key socket and 'play' the key back and forth without force to work it loose.

Sounds like locking torque converter is getting intermittent signals from transmission control module. Likely not a dirty filter or general transmission issue unless abused by [prior] owner.

Hair dryer, and patience. Afterward, a block heater option addition may be in order.

In the surge tank on the drivers side of the engine compartment aft of the windshield washer fluid reservoir.
The line that separates the top and bottom halves of the tank, inside the tank is the cold fill line and should be just covered when the engine is cold. Never open this tank while hot, scalding fluid will shoot out and burn you severely!

Considering the age of the battery for that year car, before you do anything else, try a jumpstart to see if the car will start. If so, you may just have a weak battery that needs to be replaced.
Unlike cars of old, modern car computers will deny power to critical circuitry when the battery falls to a certain level. Without getting too involved in explaining, this protects the sensitive circuits of your car from ill effects of a battery on it's last leg. Lights on and no attempt at start is indicative of intentional computer protect.
What a weak battery did to fry a cars clock windings in the 50's and 60's would certainly wreck a lot of options in the modern car so the computer protects those circuits through power denial.

Good luck.

Unusual, but with no other info, here is a procedure that has to be performed to abate general hard starts with the 05-06 models;
Once a year or 2, have a mechanic clean the throttle body inner surfaces with a rag and some brake cleaner spray.
Varnish builds up and the throttle plate sticks to the inner surface over time. A cleaning every 2 years at the longest prevents this condition.
Access through the removed air cleaner to throttle body rubber connector is all that is needed to clean the area.

First, recalibrate the air handler by the following procedure;
From the Equinox Service Manual
1. With the ignition on, simultaneously press the A/C and Recirc buttons, 3 times in less than 2 seconds
2. Verify that the A/C and Recirc LEDs are flashing, Wait 15 seconds for calibration to complete
3. After calibration is complete, press the A/C and Recirc buttons to verify proper LED tracking to function selected

If this does not correct the air handling issue, have the nearest dealership diagnose possible loose electrical connections , broken air dam doors, etc.

Best of luck.

There is no hack. Only a GM dealer can program the security features of their OEM radios. Just one of the many things that manufacturers have to go through to dissuade auto theft and black market parting.

The ETS light comes on usually in responce to a cooling system problem in Cavaliers. The first thing to do is check your fuses. The Check Engine light always comes on when the ETS light comes on. You need to be concerned with this ETS system first. Usually it is your 30 amp fuse that needs to be replaced. On most cav's the fuse box us under your hood, on the right hand side. There are two fuses that are for the coolent system. Check these fuses first. If the fuse is blown, change it and the dash light should go out. If the fuse blows in a week or so again, then try to read the codes like the guys above say. When the fuse it out, the code reader is just going to say that you need to check your fuse. This is what happened in my car, and my mechanic said it was pretty common in these cars. Good luck.
