I am having a similar issue with my 2006 Chevy Trailblazer. I was driving yesterday and hit a bump in road. The car signaled to "Service Stabilitrak." As I continued to drive, less than 1/4 mile, power started to cut off to several parts of the car. The radio and a/c turned off and I could no longer get readings on my gauges. I stopped at the stop sign and it wouldn't restart. I'm not sure if it is the fuse or alternator. Yesterday, I looked at the fuses and they looked fine. Last night I went back to have the truck towed and it was completely dead due to battery drain. A boost got me up and running and I was able to drive it up on the AAA truck. It's currently sitting outside my house, but I'm concerned as to what might be pulling on my electrical system like this.

The only way we are going to get anywhere is by getting people to not buy Chevys. The way they treat their customers is criminal. My 06 Trailblazer has been the worst car I have ever owned and they will do nothing to fix it.

It's time for a change. Rather than being slaves to a corporation that sells us crap it's time to file a complaint with the NHTSA. The only way we will ever get a recall issued for or trucks is to get the government involved. Any vehicle problem that has the potential to leave you stranded is a risk to personal safety. These electrical problems that Chevy has been ignoring and charging the consumer for are a risk to your personal safety. It's time to mobilize people. Go to the NHTSA website and file a complaint.

"Any vehicle problem that has the potential to leave you stranded is a risk to personal safety". Unfortunately, the NHTSA doesn't look at it that way.

For a government agency to ignore a problem that has been ongoing is unacceptable. We as taxpayers allow bailout money to go to this manufacturer and then we allow them to continue to operate in this manner? Why don't we just hand every taxpayer that owns a chevy a shotgun and let them shoot their own foot off? If I'm paying for a government agency to enfore vehicle safety, I want them to enforce vehicle safety. Screw the semantics.

Sep 06, 2010 (8:58 am)
Wiring from my blower motor to the resistor has gotten hot and I have found several damage spots on the Ground wire between the motor and resistor and including damage on one portion of the butt connector on the Resistor. I did my best to repair the damaged spots and replaced one section of ground wire. My work allowed me to enjoy my air conditioning for about a week. Its now not working again.
What is causing my wiring to get so hot? Any suggestions?

You are not the only one who is having electrical issues, if you type on Google you will see forums full of customers complaining about the battery drain on their car. There is a DEFECT in GM built trucks and cars. I have heard of Impalas having the same issue. But there are forums are out there showing 2002-2008 Trailblazers with battery drains, that lead to electrical problems throughout the whole vehicle. My friend is having the same issue with his car and has replaced batteries, alternators and everything else. Some forums say that its the BCM The body control monitor is to blame. But, there may still be another underlying issues. I am currently asking for legal representation to have petitions signed on behalf of GM customers that are experiencing these types of issues. There are so many out there, that are having to jump their cars everyday in order to get it to function properly, I don't know how many people want to spend $20,000-$40,000.00 on a vehicle that has to be jumped or that they have to take the negative terminal off the battery every day just to have their cars run properly, but I know I wouldn't. Please get the word out, that if anyone is having any issues like this with their Trailblazer to keep posting to this forum or any other Trailblazer forum that they can find! I will be sending links to different firms to see if it generates enough to get people's cars fixed~ You all deserve to have properly running cars!
