I took my Blazer to a buddy for him to look at and they told me it was the over drive bearing. I have never heard of an over drive bearing They told me that my whole engine had to be replaced and that just didn't sound right to me. Because Overdrive has everything to do with the transmission now if there is such thing as over drive bearing it would be in the gear box or somewhere in the tranny right? and how would I fix it

Forget the "buddy" and find a reputable garage to look at the vehicle. Might cost you $100 for their diagnostic services, but save you thousands in an unwarranted repair.
There is no such thing as an "overdrive bearing" in an engine.

#3279 of 3676 Programming a new remote
Sep 26, 2008 (10:20 pm)
I had to buy a new remote the other day. But as of yet, havent gotten it to work.I called several Chevy dealers an found out that the one I bought was the only one for my year blazer. So, that is not a problem. IS there a set way to get the camputer to learn the new one,besides using a hand comp plugged in.?
I did find out that someone changed the remote before and the old one I had was never for the blazer( but they did get it to work)
The same dumb azz had an aftermarket alarm put into. (but this doesnt work and hasnt since I got it. ( dealer probally unplugged it.)
So, I hope yall can help me here, because I miss using he remote.

Hey Folks! I have a 1999 Blazer and am wanting to replace the OEM speakers. I can easily get the front and rear door speakers, however when I'm looking at the crutchfield site, it doesn't show anything for the dash speakers. I belive they are 4x6 but all of the 4x6 speakers they have shows the they don't fit my vehicle. Any reason why? Has anyone replace all 6 of thier speakers and if so what with? I'm also interested in replacing the head unit with maybe a power amp and a sub. I'd be interested in what folks have done. I'm not going to spend a bunch of money, not interested in showing or anything, just a good system.
Thanks for any help and suggestions.

Hey 20blazer00 ,
I just had to buy a remote last weekend, and have the same problem, I can't get it to program. The only thing I can figure is that the remote I bought changes "codes"each time it's pressed (to keep other remotes from opening my door) it's a security feature of my opener. I think the blazer is not capable of this feature, therefore isn't compatible. Just a guess on my part though. I just go ahead and use the remote clipped to my visor.
p.s. the last remote I had programmed just fine and I had been using the overhead button for the last 5 years! I lost the remote because I never used it..

Well, not an "overdrive bearing" per se, but there is a sun gear that will shut things down if it breaks. Did this come on suddenly, or were there earlier symptoms?

+This may be too late but just read this post. As I work for a car rental comp. We
see this all the time. The main 2 reasons this happens is the cable that drives the door is loose, broken, or unattached. 2nd, is the control head itself.

yes, there is a procedure to enter programming mode, using just the ignition switch. I used it to reprogram the 2 used remotes I bought off the net, I won't be able to look for it until the weekend. If I find it I'll let you know,

The dash speakers are tiny. like 2 inches, with a big bracket. If you look on ebay for used blazer speakers, you'll probably find a picture. I haven't found any aftermarket speakers that will fit.
