#1212 of 3676 1999 Chevrolet Blazer Clicking Turn Signal Noise
May 02, 2005 (11:49 pm)
My 1999 Chevrolet Blazer started making a clicking noise today. It sounds like the turn signal flasher. The clicking sound is coming from the same little black box, on the passenger side from under the kick panel, as the turn signal click comes from. It just comes on and off on its own and sometimes when it will stay on when I've just used my turn signal. I was wondering if anyone knew what this problem is because I don't have very much money and would like to try and fix this myself. Please if anyone knows please message or email me back.

We have a 2000 4X4 Blazer.
In the past year: the handle to adjust the seat has broken off both passenger side and drive side, there is a clicking that sounds like blinker coming from dash, fuel gauge flutters and does not display accurate fuel level reading, and most recently, when we turned on the air, smoke (electrical) came from steering column. Turned off air, parked in safe area and turned air on again – we have fans but no temperature (cool or hot). The other issues are annoyances we can deal with, this one will require a trip to the shop.
Has anyone run into this last issue (smoke, then no temp control)?

Not sure what's up with your car pieps4157 but my 1999 Blazer is in the shop getting a 'new' used transmission. Was just going down the road, it jumped a couple of times and stuck in second.

#1216 of 3676 Chevy S-10 Blazer: Problems & Solutions
May 04, 2005 (12:25 pm)
I have a 98 S-10 with only 120,000 miles. Wouldn't start last month. We replaced the fuel filter module in the fuse box (it was burnt on one side).
2 days ago: it would not start - again. We replaced the module a second time thinking something electrical was shorting them out. Still wouldn't start.
Yesterday: Had it towed to the garage. Still wouldn't start.
Today: Once they started to hook it up to the scope, it started and has been running every since.
We don't know whether to start with the electrical or the fuel system.

I had the exact same problem with my '98 LT 4WD. My mechanic replaced the "combination signal switch". Cost $300 to fix (~200 parts, 100 labor). Well worth it - that noise is pretty annoying.
#1218 of 3676 Air conditioning compressor leaking
May 04, 2005 (1:32 pm)
I had no A/C when spring rolled around this year. Recharged the system and had dye put in. Went back a week later and discovered a slow leak from the back of the compressor. My mechanic estimates about $800 to replace the compressor and the accumulator.
Is this something I can do myself? No I need to replace the accumulator also? (I don't even know what it does.) Can I just get a used compressor or a rebuilt from the junk yard, swap it out with the old one and have the system recharged or is there more to it?
Thanks in advance. By the way, I have a '98 Blazer LT 4WD.

My Blazer dies too. I've come to find that it's the relay switches in the glove compartment. Check those. Mine are real loose, I think there's a lid on the relay harness (the box the switches are in) but mine is missing ( Does anyone know if there is supposed to be a lid on it??), so it's duct taped for now, lol. If the relays come loose just the slightest bit, my car dies.

My Jimmy is 2 wheel drive. Its a 2001 model 4.3L. So what was the $34 repair you did that fixed the fuel problem?

May 06, 2005 (6:08 am)
Do you have a bug shield? If so, that will sometimes cause your hood to stick. Try pulling the lever then shove down on the hood, this will cause it to pop back up and sometimes open. You may have to shove down on it a couple times to free it from the jam.
Hope this helps
