#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.

Hi, This is the procedure to program the remote:
1. Close all vehicle doors.
2. Insert the key into the ignition.
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driverís door panel-continue to hold down until instructed
to release in step 9.
4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine).
6. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
8. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
9. Release the power unlock button on the door panel. The vehicle will lock and unlock the doors automatically.
10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously until the door locks and unlocks.
This step may take up to 30 seconds.
11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional transmitter (including any existing transmitters).
12. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position in order to exit the transmitter programming mode.
I have done it to get more than one transmitter to my Blazer, and it works.
Good luck, Magnus, Sweden.
#3287 of 3676 Front axle won't engage on 4wd.
Oct 01, 2008 (10:03 pm)
I can't get the front axle to engage when changing into 4wd. I have checked the relays, they work. The switch work, and when pressing 4HI when driving, you can feel it engage. 4LO changes the transmission into low gear, but still not 4wd. When raising the vehicle and go to 4wd, the drive shaft to the front axle start to rotate as well. The vacuum actuator under the battery tray works and pulls the wire real strong. But the front wheels still wont rotate. I think the problem must be inside the front axle!? Do anyone have any suggestions? Please help, I need the 4wd when the snow start to fall.

Ok, after some digging, and twisting arms and pulling hair, I finally got told the deal as to why my new remote wouldnt program. As it turns out, it does have to do with the after-market alarm. Its a GM after market alarm, and the old remote was for it.
But, now for the bad part, that remote and its replacement are no longer made.
It took a Chevy Parts man 4 hours to figure everything out. I went to places where alarms are sold and put in. About 15 of them and it was like, they just stared at me like I had something wrong with me. Came home and searched online remote outlets like keylessride and the like and still no luck. One gu told me I could just search for the FCC number instead of the P/N. But would that work? Find one that ues the same freq range?
