#1230 of 3676 Re: 1999 Chevrolet Blazer Clicking Turn Signal Noise [smush29]
May 12, 2005 (8:43 am)
I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy that had the same problem. I searched and searched for the answer, and found it late one night. The fix is relatively simple. When the turn signal is turned on little metal shavings rub off. These shavings get into the lubricant around the connectors and end up bridging the gap between circuits. So in essence, the turn signal switch is partially connected, which is why you get the clicking sound. Just take the plastic casing off, and unscrew the piece that holds the signal arm in place. Clean all of the connections (little metal plates) and re-lubricate with an electrically conducive lubricant (You can do it without the lubricant, but it is only a short-term fix , approx 1 year). You also have to pull out the hazard flasher switch (Pulled straight up on my 98 Jimmy) and clean and re-lube it as well. Put it all back together, and that should do it. Hope this helps, and p.s. be careful cleaning the signal arm. There is a little spring inside that is easy to lose!
#1231 of 3676 Blazer Tailgate

My '96 Blazer S10 has a malfunctioning tailgate. Cannot get it to open either by key or remote clicker. Has anyone else had this problem? Can you give me a suggestion as to what to do? Also, 2 doors on passenger's side also is malfunctioning electrically. What caused this and is it a quick fix or does it need a trip to the Chevy dealer?
#1232 of 3676 clunking front end

There was a loud clunking sound coming from under the passenger floor board of our '99 Jimmy that was getting worse by the day. I crawled all over the place underneath the truck trying to find the problem with no luck.
For those who have the same experience, the problem turned out to be a loose and stripped frame bolt. It took the mechanic three different road tests to finally track it down.

The price is not out of line for a dealer, but I just replaced a drivers side hub assy. on my 99 Blazer, it had 78,000 mi. It is not a difficult job, but not an easy one either. first you have to loosen the hub nut, remove the wheel, remove the caliper and bracket assy, remove the rotor, finish taking the hub nut off, disconnect the anti lock pigtail, then remove the the hub assy. instellation is the reverse. like I said it's not hard but not easy either. took me about 2-3 hrs.

I have had this trouble before, it took me 8hrs to diagnose and cost about 45.00 to fix. In the distributor there is a wire wrapped coil that is used for the magnetic pickup, this coil is going open and no longer delivering the signal to fire a spark or make the injectors pulse. I am sorry to see that all of the other parts were replaced.
Good luck, and I hope your problem is resolved.
