And now the radio is going yet again. I just had a new one put in last year and now the display is shot. So, along with the windows, the way it rides, the stereo, the engine...I am so done with this SUV. I wish that I could sell it and buy something that is not going to cause me so much problems.

We purchased an 04 trailblazer 2-3months ago, everything was great, until now we are having issues with left side window not working.
lifted the seat to check fuses. the main resettable breaker for the windows get's so hot you can't touch it. I pulled it out for a few days, it was ok then acted up again same thing too hot to touch. If that wasn't enough, now the left turn signal is blowing fuses, thought I replaced and and had it working tried to make it blow by using signal and anything else I could think of.
a day later my wife calls me and says it's blown again.
This is the 1st chevy we ever owned, right now I'm thinking I made a mistake. Taking to chevy garage on Wednesday. anyone have some good advise on what may be the issues with this? The more I read the more worried I become of the future of this vehicle and my wallet.

Follow up on 04 blazer with blowing fuses and breakers; dealer called won't be finished until tommorrow, they found the problem with blowing fuses and breakers. the wiring under the floor interior I think running allong top side of rocker panel to rear fuse box wore thru its casing and shorted out. I know they got at least 4-5 hrs in at $75 an hour fiiguring it out.
#46 of 64 04 Trailblazer Window Problems
Jul 06, 2012 (5:46 pm)
Here's a new one for my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer. When I turn the ignition switch on without starting the vehicle all 4 of my power windows work properly. When I start the vehicle all 4 windows begin closing by themselves without anyone pushing the power buttons in a pulsing manner, about 1/4 inch per pulse. Each pulse is accompanied by a click coming from the module on the driver's side door that holds the 4 window switches and automatic door lock switch. When the windows reach the fully closed position the pulsing and clicking continues as if the vehicle is still trying to close the windows even though they are closed. The clicking is coming from the 3 other modules on the 3 other doors as well. $290 to replace the main driver's door module plus labor to have it programmed. After playing around with this for about and hour my vehicle would no longer start due to low battery. Dealer said the entire problem could have been caused by a low voltage event. So I don't know if low voltage caused the problem or if I just ran the battery down while I was trouble shooting. Checked the battery after it wouldn't start and it was 11.8 volts. On the charger now. Any ideas anyone? Many Thanks.

The driver's side window on mine went 3 weeks after we bought it. a few weeks after that the " service stabilitrac lmessage came on. brought it o the dealership and they said the switch just needed to be reset, it took them three minutes. two weeks later the same message came up took it back again and they said the sensor unit needed replacing but since the 30 day waranty was now expired it would be $3200. I am not at all happy with this vehicle.

ok, GM has finally recalled the main power window switches, campaign number 12180. This happened on 8/15/2012. Today is 9/6/2012 and I am still trying to get this fixed, I am on the phone with Gm right now, and they keep giving me the run around. This is now my 10th phone call since the recall took effect. I was told 2 days ago it went though and to get my truck fixed, the dealership still has no info on this so they can not fix until GM gives the ok. Now today GM is telling me to pay out of pocket and if it becomes a recall they will reamburse me. I noe have the rep speaking to the dealership about this, I will let everyone know what they say in a moment.

I wonder how that will work for me... I replaced that thing 1 1/2 years ago. I hope they pay me too. I will dig out my receipt. I was without a window control for almost a year and couldn't deal with it any longer so I paid for the damned thing. The new one feels hot too from time to time so I'm sure it will happen again. Let us know. Thanks.

Hello there leannajo,
Per a media release I see about this matter I see that the service procedure is being validated and that, as far as I can tell, this is all still an upcoming recall or special coverage (depending on the state of origin of the vehicle). Do you have a Service Request open with us?
All the best,
Sarah, GM Customer Service
