#17554 of 18329 2005 & 2006 Trailblazer Sales
Jan 06, 2006 (12:58 pm)
I drove by my dealership to see what kind of vehicles are left. Let me tell you the lot was empty! I hope GM across the board did well on red tag event. I saw a few Tahoes and Silverado 1500's. There were two, only two, Trailblazers on the lot and this is a decent size dealership. Does that mean my dealership is in trouble or would you say that is a good sign? It is the only Chevy dealership in town. The Buick/GMC dealership also has very little inventory, has only one Rainer on it and no Envoys! Toyota, the only foreign dealership in town, has full inventory. What is going on?

Just curious...I have an '03 Trailblazer EXT and the dash vents ONLY are not working.......all other vents seem to operate...could this be a resistor problem as well? This problem exists whether the a/c is on or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

NBC nightly news announced last night that for the first time in many years Chevy beat Ford last year in sales and also TB beat Explorer in sales. Maybe that explains the empty lots!

There is a motorized air damper door under the dash that can fail. You will get air at your feet but not at your face. Try raising and lower the temperature selector from 60 to 90 degrees and see if the heater /AC control system moves the air damper.
Good luck, hope you are under warranty.

I guess trying to tweak OEM navigation systems is hard; there's occasional similar complaints over in the Navigation / GPS Systems discussion with various makes. You may try searching sites like this one.

I am having the same exact problem. Did you ever find out what the problem was? For the life of me, I can not figure out why (when I cut the wheel hard to the left or right), the vehicle stutters on acceleration as if it can't overcome the resistance in the front cv joints. It's starts bucking and carrying on like something is seriously wrong and ultimately can not negotiate the delivery of torque to the hubs when the cv's are in a maxxed out turn. Other thab that, driving in a straight line is fine.

I had the exact same symptoms on my 02 Bravada - it seems like it is stuck in 4 wheel drive. There are a couple of bulletins on the transfer case. Mine was the actuator motor/sensor which required a new 4wd computer because the replacement is an updated design. Also there is a bulletin on "flushing" the transfer case because the original fluid causes the clutch packs to stick. Bite the bullet and have this done at a dealer. I saw other postings of people complaining about whining sounds from the front wheels - this is the same problem - get it fixed before you tear up your front CV joints!

Thanks Steve, I didn't realize there were specific forums on those topics, thanks!

Unfortunately, the problem still exists after trying the temp from 60 to 90. Exactly as you said, though, air at feet, but not at face. What would GM or any other part vendor name the air damper? Can't seem to find it, just hoping to get a ballpark price. Thanks for the information.
