In case this is still an issue.
1: Record your Radio security code or set it to "0000"
2: Check the switches in the Dash to make sure they are not defective.
3: Disconnect the battery for 3 minutes and try to engage the 4WD. CAUTION--SEE STEP 1
If at this point you still have no 4WD the it is most likely the Transfer Case Controller (Located in the Dash or Right Kick Pad)or the Transfer Case Encoder Motor (located in the Transfer Case).

Well I think i know exactly what is wrong. you have to get your heater core flushed out. You probably have the red anti-freeze called dexicool. and that usually clogs up in the heater core. its really not a problem. just get it flushed out and your heater will be working fine again. and trust me, it will be hot. i had the same problem and now i barely take the blowers speed off of one.
#330 of 535 I might be buying a Blazer.

I might buy a 1999 4 door blazer or a 2000 2 door blazer. I would be buying it for my first car. If anyone has any pictures, or any kind of info on them, or what you think of it as a first car would be very helpful. Neither of them have ABS. The 4 door is tan and the 2 door is black.

Just sold my '98 Blazer LT 4x4 with 100K miles (27K on a rebuilt engine) for $4,600. I think it was a fair deal for both myself and the buyer. Thanks to all of you who have answered my Blazer questions over the past few years.

I am currently doing a swap in a 91 s10 pickup. It had a 2.2 or 2.5 4 cyl manual transmission. I chose a 2000 s10 4.3 with automatic as the swap. Getting it in is not that bad. I had to move the cross member for the transmission and buy new motor mounts, but everything lined up fine and fit nicely. Also, I had to buy a new radiator. I sent my old harness and new harness to a company in Texas and they spliced them together so I could retain my dash cluster. Also, you have to have the Vehicle Anit Theft System (VATS)codes removed from the computer because your truck won't start due to the chip in the ignition which recognizes the computer on the 2000 and allows it to start. You can buy a bypass if you have the key from the 2000 with the chip for a few bucks. Also, you will have to buy something called cable x a product that converts the electronic spedometer signal into a signal that your manual cable can read. Besides all of this the conversion is quite simple. I have been working on mine for while and still can't seem to get it running. I just sent the harness back to have it checked out and they think my ignition is bad so they gave me a bypass. I will be putting the harness back next week and hopefully it will start. It ran previously if you put some gas in the throttle body but I wasn't getting the injectors to pulse. Hopefully this fixes it. Also, you will need to add a high pressure fuel pump. I got one from a typhoon or a cyclone from the same year as mine as they were fuel injected. Fits right in and the harness plugs right into it. You will also need to upgrade your fuel lines to something that can handle fuel injection. Non fuel injection flows at 10-12 lbs while the 2000 motor needs 55-60 lbs of pressure. Just to give you an idea on costs I bought the 2000 motor on ebay with automatic trans, floor shifter and complete harness and computer for about 1400 including shipping. The other stuff cost me about 400 or so.

I hope you didn't leave your engine running!
#336 of 535 Re: Turn Signal Constant Clicking! [makpiette]
Dec 26, 2005 (2:47 pm)
my 98 blazer did the same thing last year. Turn signals work fine but I heard clicking after using them. It was a multifunction switch which cost 400 bucks to dealer fix. Tricky repair cuz up in steering column under dash and air bag sensors have connections in the area. Works fine after replaced switch.

When reverse and overdrive both failed same day in my 1998 Blazer, dealer said repaiing parts would cost 3300 and putting in a GM Remanufactured trans would cost 3700. Blazer had 59,000 miles and never towed or hauled anything heavy. I called GM Cust. Service 1-800 number and after much hem and haw they said if I did have 3700.00 repair job done, they would pay 50% of cost, in form of rebate check after I paid entire amt.
I okayed the repairs and after I got vehicle back then GM said they decided to pay only 40% of agreed cost "because of the mileage on the vehicle(?)".
For a vehicle that was babied since day one that I owned since brand new, I thought it ridiculous that trans would fail with less than 60 thousand miles on unit.
For GM to offer to only pay 50% was an insult and then to screw me again by changing refund amount was final straw.
I highly doubt GM will ever have any of my future business if this is how they treat a customer who had chevies since 1974.
Lots of others want car buyers business and I will hope they treat long time customers with a lot more respect. Goodby GM
