What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet TrailBlazer, SUV

I own a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer, which I love. I love the way it looks, the way it drives, and the overall features it has. HOWEVER, it is a piece of crap. My speedometer has malfunctioned which was 500 to fix, and then today I rolled my window down at the ATM and it would roll up. I had to drive home in the rain with my window down. The dealership says it will be roughly 500 to fix this also. Is anyone else have problems with the windows?

I have an 03 Silverado and I had the same problem last week. I have not had it fixed yet because I know it will cost a lot. It sounds like it has come of of the track and I had to pull it up by hand to help the power motor. I am sorry it happened to you to, but I am glad I am not the only one. I also get a loud "pinging" noise, like the sound of metal popping, all the time. Seems like it happens about 5 to 10 minutes after I park the car. Anyone else getting that?

update:: The windows and doors rattle really bad, I have had it in the shop so many times. I have been told it is the way it is build. The speakers keep blowing, and they rattle also. This car sounds like a rattle box. Is anyone else having problems like this? The stablizers have been replaced and are shot again. I am ashamed to have anyone in my car. There is a film that gets all over the interior windows. And now there is a smell that smells like something is burning. I have taken the car through the BBB and lost, since GM said..."this is how the car is made, and other windows rattle also"
#6 of 64 2004 Trailblazer Power Window Problem
Aug 19, 2008 (2:55 pm)
We have a 04' Trailblazer. For some reason today the drivers side window controls would not work. The other 3 windows work fine when usuing their individual controls but the drivers side master control doesn't work on any of them. Now the power window lock and door lock on the same drivers side control works fine, just the windows. Checked all fuses, wiring behind door panel. Could I get a little help with a fix or the reason for this problem.

I don't know it my experience helps or not - different make and all. But I have carbon problems now and then on my master window switch. It's a pain to try to clean.
This is what mine does:
If you can get access to the switch, you may try some electrical contact cleaner on it. That didn't do any good with mine though.

You said the electrical cleaner didn't work on yours, what do you use to clean it, if that's my problem?

Oh, I tore my switch apart and cleaned the contacts with cotton swabs and the contact cleaner. Just spraying the fluid in the switch didn't help in my case.
I was given a broken switch to play with first, but after all my testing, I still had to glue the switch housing back together on the one in the van. Since my van is turning into your basic beater, I don't mind the scars. A new switch runs about $80 in my case.
Maybe someone with better electrical skills than me could tell you how to bypass the switch for testing purposes so you can rule it in or out.
Btw, my master switch controls two windows, and only the driver's side was carboned up. Makes sense I guess since that's the one that gets the most use.

Thanks for your help...I'll give it a try!

You could check the cable guides. They have a tendency to un-spool from the motor housing. If you the guts to tear the down apart, and get dirty, you will need to pry the clips on the panel, then remove the motor. held in place with 3 screws (8mm screws) carefully rewind the cable if the spool is still good, replace and should be good to go. The cables must be very snug. Good luck. Try and get some buddies to help.
#12 of 64 window issue

I have a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer. I have had the car for 3 years and have never had any issues until now. When I roll my windows down from the driver side controller the windows come right back up. I have to actually hold the button down for the window to stay down. Its a pain at the drive thru!!!
