I am having the same issue with my 2002 TB. The console gauges all go to zero excpt the speedometer. Have you had a resolution? I was told to replace my ignition switch. I have not yet done that but plan to. The engine continues to run smooth, it's just the gauges, radio, etc that stop working.
Thank you for any help.

Had that problem early on when my 02 Trailblazer was in warranty. Chevy had to replace the Instrument Cluster Panel.
#613 of 660 2004 Chevy T-Blazer Clicking Noise
Nov 13, 2010 (7:32 am)
I get a clicking noise evey time I start my Traliblazer, coming from the right right wheel well, between internal plastic cover and body frame so it is not accessible from the outside. It happens when the car is first started for 5 - 10 seconds and stops, then does it again internittently for the next 30 - 45 seconds. It seems to occur after I touch the brakes so I am thinking it is the hydraulic system pressurizing, Any good answers ?
#614 of 660 Trailblazer EXT Back Gate/Back Glass
Nov 30, 2010 (2:00 pm)
My son backed my 2003 Trailblazer EXT into a tree and busted the glass. This car has 200,000 miles on it, and money is tight, so I'm looking for an inexpensive fix. Replacement back glass parts are about $700 new, and used ones are hard to come by. I found a 2003 Trailblazer at a salvage yard with parts that are very inexpensive. My question is - 1 - Why won't a Trailblazer back glass fit a Trailblazer EXT? 2 - Could I replace the entire back gate instead? (meaning, could I use the back gate on the salvaged Trailblazer on my Trailblazer EXT?)
#615 of 660 Is there a special way to install the upper coolant hose?
Dec 19, 2010 (6:00 pm)
For the third time within One Year I have a leak in the Upper Coolant Hose. I replaced the water pump and since then we've had this problem. There is a hemorage of the inner lining and coolant pushes up to toward the radiator. As soon as my wife drives up I can smell the leaking coolant. I am adding about a quart of coolant a week (160 miles).
#616 of 660 Why won't GM recall the Trailblazer?

I have a 2004 Trailblazer that has had on going electrical problems. None of the gauges work - it started out as just periodic failure - now it is complete failure. I am constantly shocked when exiting the vehicle if I brush against any metal on the drivers door. The rear tailgate no longer will lock. Also, the headlights will only work on bright. I have been to the dealer so many times with these issues that I feel like everyone runs the other direction when they see me coming. I have been told numerous times at the dealership -that this is a on going problem with this year/model. I have seen so many post on the internet with others having the same issues. Why won't GM take responsibility for these issues? I can't afford to just buy a new car - and there is no way anyone will give me anything for this vehicle. The cost they want for fixing this is ridiculous and they can't guarantee that it won't happen again.

Hate to tell you but in the Trailblazer it isn't just the tiny little cheap motors. The problem is the entire cluster - replaced mine twice and it continues to be a problem. The techs at the dealerships say this is on going issue with the trailblazers and until GM takes it serious enough to recall it - it is going to be nothing but COSTLY on going problems!! So frustrating!!!

You get shocked due to static when you brush across the seat getting out. It happens in dry climates like you have in Nevada, just like in Arizona. It's a normal thing. Keep one hand on a metal surface when exiting (like the door frame) and most of the static will be conducted away without building up enough to shock you. Sorry for all your other problems, my 02 has been rock solid since day 1.
