#2843 of 3676 2001 Blazer Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC)
Dec 31, 2006 (7:22 am)
We have a 2001 Chevy Blazer that does something that seems odd. When you turn the ignition off all the dials on the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) start to fall to a zero reading but after 10 to 15 seconds some of the IPC dials (oil pressure, voltage, temperature) rise back up; the oil pressure settles to ablut 40 psi, for example. This happens whether you open a door or not to kill the power to the radio, etc.
Is this action standard operating procedure for the 2001 Blazer? Is this a problem that should be fixed?

I had the same problem, mine would work for about 5 minutes then just stop half way. Very annoying and dangerous. I ordered the new circuit board from www.1aautomotive.com I found them on ebay and they sell the replacement board for the wipers. It was very easy to take off and reinstall. Probably about five minutes. Everything is up front by the windshield. When i pulled my old one out it was coverd in grease and if i would have thought to just clean off the two long contacts that stick up from the board and wipe out all the grease in the housing it probably would of fixed the problem but I went ahead and installed the new one and it works great. At first i thought it was a little screwy because when i turned my wipers to off they still will run for about three more strokes then they shut off. I guess its just the way the new board is setup. Anyhow im just thankful that they work again. HOpe this helps anyone else that is having wiper blade issuses. They part was only 25 bux and it was easy to do it yourself. The only thing you need is a star style screwdriver, i forget the name but you will what i mean when you look at the type of screw it takes. There were only 3 to take out.

Thanks very much! I guess it's off to the tranny shop for me.
I did replace cap & rotor and got rid of the 0300 fault. Am having the catalitic converter taken care of tomorrow. I'll make sure to post what I come up with.
#2846 of 3676 10-11 mpg on 95 blazer???
Jan 01, 2007 (9:15 pm)
Just purchased a '95 4dr LT 4wd w/125,000 miles as a temporary vehicle while the deer is being removed from my 1500 z71. I have a couple questions. First, from reading these msgs, it is clear the blazers get poor mpg, but 10-12??, Is there anything I can do to improve to at least 17 or 18? Also, the service engine light went on and I didn't get the code, yet, but am curious if its related. Otherwise its runs great! .......except, why does the buzzer keep going when the key is out of the ignition and all the lights are off?

did you ever determine what the problem was?
#2848 of 3676 Does anyone know what if any solution to this he found?
Jan 02, 2007 (5:33 am)
ust had transmission rebuilt about 3000 mi ago, it will act up after about 20 min driving it feels like TCC is disengaging and ingaging at a rapid pace, you can actually see the tach jumping about a 100 RPM.
Transmission shop checked it out and said it had an engine miss, and maybe it was
the cap and rotor, I changed that, but no help, I am now going to replace the coil and ignition module mounted on intake, fortunately I have an extra one, so I will see if that cures it.
anybody got an idea, you think Im going in the right direction?
It seems strange that you can only feel the miss when it is in lockup between 42-54 MPH, I respect the Tran shops diagnosis, I dont think he is giving me runaround, if the coil dont fix it , then I will change the plugs, it has 52000 mi. on it.
Thanks in advance for any help. Henry

Maybe torque converter so try 3rd and see if its stable. Misses are a pain but check the fuel pressure also. Check plug wires and then see if a vac leak. Then theres the crank sensor or a clogged injector - hard to pinpoint as you know if no codes and no scanner. Under $100 for a dealer to scan and pinpoint and may save you pulling your hair out.
#2850 of 3676 95 blazer intermittent hesitation
Jan 04, 2007 (12:02 pm)
Have an interesting problem with my 95 Blazer LS (4.3L V6). It has about 192,000 original miles on it. Unlike apparently a lot of folks, mine has been essentially trouble-free until now. Recently took it on a trip of about 200 miles each way. Everything was fine for first 40 miles. I was on the interstate doing about 70-75 mph when the engine suddenly appeared to lose all electrical power momentarily then recovered and everything returned to normal. Did that 8 or 9 times. When it happened, speedometer dropped and surged. ABS and Airbag lights came on and remained on for about 5 secs. Exited the freeway and pulled into a Chevy dealer near the exit. Service and parts were closed. Checked under the hood and everything appeared normal. Started up the engine and everything appeared normal. Doesn't happen every day but some days it happens all day. Mostly happens on acceleration even when not on highway. Is very inconsistent.

Fuel, spark, or electrical so have to start testing and nail it down. At that mileage could be any component.

Hi there! I had the same problem with my 1997 Jimmy. When I had it hooked up to the computer, the fault code was 0300-multiple misfire. This was fixed by a new cap and rotor. Unfortunately for me, the misfire caused a sensor problem, which caused a transmission problem.
Best to take care of this now, before it turns into a big headache as mine did.
Best of luck to you.
