I have a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer. When I am driving the headlights just shut off. It is very scarry because I have a newborn and a 2 year old in the car with me. Chevy should recall this vehicle before anyone gets killed. Also the gas guague show Empty all the time even when it is completly full. And I just spent $800 to have a water pump changed. This is a money pit, I was raised in a GM family and am sorry I ever bought this car. I bought it new and have been the only owner and taken very good care of it.

Yes indeed. A very common problem with many TB's. Low beam all of sudden just decide to quit and your left in the dark (sorry for the pun).
High Beams will work as a backup, but it is a serious issue. I can go months without any headlight problems then out of the clear blue, whamo!
Past threads say to replace a couple of fuses. Sorry about your other problems.
Love my 02 TB which I've had for 10 years and have put on 312,000 miles.
Knock on wood she runs and looks great. With some repairs required because of the age of the vehicle, I change all fluids on a regular basis and wax her to death.

The headlight problem is actually a relay problem, it's a $40 part 15 seconds to replace. The gas gauge is either the little tiny stepper motor on the back of it or it's your ignition switch, not the one the key goes into. Both are very inexpensive and easy to replace. $800 for a waterpump? Wow, find a new mechanic, that's wayyyyy too much.

yes the entire car shuts off on us mid drive and we just replaced the water pump as well .. and the dealership acts like they have no clue what im talking about they want 80 just to diagnose it .. what the heck how is it my fault that the parts are faulty they should be paying us for putting us and our families at risk .. it's like another tayota issue

#212 of 292 Key Is Locked In Ignation And Car Refuses To Start I Can't Even Move The Ge
Nov 27, 2011 (5:07 pm)
I have a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer. I have been having problems with my driver side running light for the last 6 months or so. I get it fixed and it always dies out after two weeks. I want you to know this so you will understand there is a wiring issue. Yesterday while I was at a light, I turned the engine off, as I do when my reduce power light comes on, to reset it, I can not remember if I put it in park first, I do this this turning the engine off because of the fan assembly causing the reduce engine power to kick in and turning the car off usually re-sets it. Well unfortunately when I went to re-start the car, nothing, couldn't even turn the key, move my gear-shift, locked completely. A man stopped to help me jump my car, nothing, he then hooked the red jumper to the fuse box, I got power back again, battery gauge listed fine, key would turn, but the engine would not start, I got the clicking, and hum of fuel pump just would not turn over engine, when he removed the cable, locked again, nothing, I had to get the car towed, and I have no idea what to do now. The battery is less than 8 months old, replaced fuel pump less than a year ago, trannie has been replaced 2years ago, if that helps. I did get a blown fuse in the back seat fuse box the night before, the fuse sparked (Rear fog)when I tried to replace it so I just left it blank. Any suggestions would help I have spent all day researching, I can't afford too much, just got laid off, and lost my place, I am staying at a remote 2nd house of a friend, my car is all I got, please help, thanks!
