#3029 of 3676 Error Code P-0101
Aug 06, 2007 (6:19 am)
Ok, here's the poop. First: 2001 Chevy Blazer LT, 4.3L V6,4X4, with 104,530 miles. My wife is on the way from the airport and she gets a SES light (steady, not blinking). Engine runs but rough. No misfiring or backfires. She stops and calls OnStar and they tell her it is an emission (?) issue and gives her the Error Code P-0101. Did some research on the internet and it looks like it might be a Mass Air Flow Sensor. Am I close??
What is it and is this something I can fix or is this a shop only fix???
Please help . . .

I realize it has been quite some time since you posted this, but I was wondering if you ever found a solution. I have a 2001 Jimmy and my key will not come out at all. It had been sticking intermitantly but last night it stuck for good. So of course this morning I had a dead battery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have trans fluid coming out the transmission vent.Any ideas on what would cause this..I had someone local look at it and they said the seal between the transmission an trasfer is leaking and over filling the transfer case making it back out the vent...

Did you try pushing the release with a key or a screwdriver? There's a little hole on the steering column--I think it's on the bottom (sorry, I haven't done it for a couple years). Stick something in there, push (you might have to fiddle around a bit), and your key should come out. That's how you get the key out when the battery is dead (that's how I know).
#3035 of 3676 Electrical problems on 87 K5 Jimmy
Sep 10, 2007 (11:32 am)
I have been over this so many times and can't figure out the problem. when the truck is running it runs great but when I shut it down the battery goes dead. the stereo and dome lights go out alot at the same time but when it is left to sit for awhile i have to jump it then everything works just fine again. PLEASE!!!!! help me I love my Jimmy and don't want to have to sell it. I can't sell it I love it too much. I don't have the money to pay an automotive electrician to figure it out so if anyone can help I would be MUCH ABLIGED!!!!!! I will help you as much as I can on other issues.

How old is the battery? If you have access to a voltmeter, check the voltage with the engine running. Should be between 13.6 and 14.8, roughly. Disconnect the battery and measure the voltage. Should be around 12.6 volts. Wait a few hours and check it again. If the voltage has dropped more than a couple of tenths, let it sit over night and check it in the morning, still disconnected from the car. If it has dropped below 12vdc, there is a bad cell in the battery and it is discharging internally. Time for a new battery.

THank you changed the battery and the discharge problem is resolved however I am still trying to figure out the problem with the stereo and dome lights. If there is anyone that can help I am still open to suggestions.
#3038 of 3676 newer model trailblazers
Sep 22, 2007 (12:41 pm)
I have a 98 Blazer, 76000 miles, and have had many of the common blazer issues, ie..upper/lower ball joints, left side hub, right side needs replaced now, rear wiper motor, power steering pump twice, remote oil filler lines twice, brake/rotor, etc etc. Not being a diy person, this truck has cost me a bunch of money at the local Chevy dealer. As crazy as it sounds, I would to stay with a Chevy. Do the 2004-2006 Trailblazers still have the front suspension issues that the older trucks all seem to have? Thanks for any input!
