#159 of 188 ??Bad Alternator or just a Bad Battery
Jul 16, 2008 (6:41 pm)
I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer that I wasn't having any troubles with until I left the ignition on yesterday for a couple of hours. I had to jump start it. After driving it about 10 miles I turned it off again but the ignition key was left on again. After jump starting again I drove home (10 miles). This morning it started without a problem but after 9 hrs of sitting again it wouldn't start. I tried a couple of times and finally it started without a jump. However 45 minutes later it wouldn't start. 3 hours later it did. When it starts initally it seems a little slow, dash lights are kinda dim and the volt meter is around 11 or 12. However, it quickly jumps to 14 and the lights brighten and everything is normal. Is this a problem with my alternator or just a very weak battery??

See the messages above regarding battery plate shorting.
If that battery is more than 3 years old, time for a new one.
#163 of 188 89 Blazer Gauges not working

I just bought an 89 S10 Blazer and the Dash Gauges aren't working. The lights come on... and the speedometer seems to be working. But the Oil Pressure, Temp, and Gas Gauge aren't working. I checked the fuse and it's fine. Any Ideas?

Aug 23, 2008 (5:52 am)
Hello all, I have a 2002 Blazer and had the fuel pump replaced about six weeks back(July 08) Since then the engine light has been on. The dealer has checked it a few times and they keep telling me it is coming up with a code for the gas cap. I have had two different gas caps on it and still the light comes on. Any ideas thanks
#168 of 188 Security, Check Engine and Low Fuel Lights
Sep 07, 2008 (11:40 am)
Just bought a 2001 Blazer ZR2. For 2 days the security light was on, the 3rd day the check engine light came on and then the low fuel light. Check engine light was off the next time i got in it and then just the low fuel light. There is a 1/2 tank of gas in it. Next time I got in it, there were no lights. The vehicle is running fine, the lights are just going crazy....Any ideas what could cause this? A sensor or something?
