#3181 of 3674 1995 chevy blazer electical problems. Please help!
Mar 11, 2008 (8:29 am)
Hey guys i'm looking for alot of input on this one. I have a 1995 chevy blazer and Out of the blue iv'e lost both low beam lights. To make this problem even more interesting is the fact that when I turn on the high beams... Even though they work the blow the number 16 fuse for the turn signals. This truck has been a great truck I just hope this isn't anything major. I think it has to be something stupid. I just haven't found anything yet. PLEASE HELP!

Is the fuse for the headlights blown or does it keep blowing when you replace it?? If so, I hate to state the obvious which you probably already know, but most likely it is a short, and where that short is, is very hard to find unless you have the right tools. I am going to guess that maybe one of the wires leading up to the headlights may have been rubbing up agains something and is now bare. If the wires for the turn signals are bare as well, they may be touching causing a short. My Suggestion would be too read up about finding shorts, or bring it to someone who knows. Another thing you might try is changing the wiring harness for the headlights. If they are corroded that might do it too. Good luck.

I just changed both headlights and the low beams mush have just been blown. And when i did that the signal lights came back. I thought this was interesting so i took it to my uncle and he said o yea that makes sense it is back feed. So I was just like sure and adjusted my headlights and went on with my life.
Seems kind of weird to me. Must be chevy hired some people from ford to lay out the electrical!!
Thank you for your input and happy driving!

If when one of the low beams went out, the support for the filament shorted against the other filament support, I could see you having a low resistance short, blowing the fuse. The filament itself has some resistance, the support wires do not.
I had a car where both low beams failed at the same time. I thought it was odd, and asked a trusted mechanic. Being a logical southern boy, he just looked at me and answered, "Why shouldn't they both go at the same time? They was put in at the same time, wasn't they?"
Kind of hard to argue with that logic.
#3185 of 3674 97 Jimmy Trans Electrical Problem
Mar 29, 2008 (7:21 pm)
I just had my ignition switch replaced to get rid of the shift solenoid problem. The transmission is newly rebuilt. The problem comes after about 20 mins of driving it goes back into safe mode. The shop says that there is no problem since they do not drive it far enough for the problem to occur. Since the ignition switch is not the problem i am wondering what else it could be. The tranny works fine for those 20 mins.

#3188 of 3674 Need help with a rear hatch
Apr 05, 2008 (7:10 am)
I have a 2004 2 door Chevy blazer and the rear hatch will not open. When you press the release button I can hear a noise like it wants to open but nothing happens. I was hoping someone would be able to give me some advice on what to troubleshoot since I am in the middle of moving and can not afford to take it to the dealer at this time. It would also make my move a lot easier if I could get that hatch open. Thanks.

Have you tried pushing to close it and re-opening it several times? And cycling the ignition once between try's? I had a similar problem with a different vehicle and all that I can think of is that it was a little stuck from non-use. Once I got it to work, it was fine.
You could always call a dealer and ask.

Is it an electric rear hatch? I had the samething happen because I backed into something but mine was electric. When I pressed the button, I could hear the motor moving, but didn't open. I took the inside panel off the gate and found that I had bent a small arm that the motor moves so it was not hitting the latch. I bent it back and it worked fine. Good luck.
