#243 of 292 Ignition problems w/2002 TB
Jan 28, 2012 (2:48 pm)
My 2002 TB ignition will intermittently not work. It may go for days and work fine, then, for no apparent reason not work. The battery is fine; all the dash lights come on when I turn the ignition switch. I sometimes have to engage the ignition switch 50 or more times before the ignition catches. It may start fine for the next few times that I start the car, then once again it will take 50 or so tries before the ignition will catch. My mechanic has tried multiple times to diagnose the problem, but with no luck. Has anyone else had this problem?

I have a 2005 EXT that is doing the samething. I have not taken it to a mechanic yet but I am going to make an appointment because my speedometer is also not working properly.
#245 of 292 2006 Trailblazer/62 K miles driver side door
Feb 01, 2012 (5:33 pm)
Just recently after turning off ignition the driver side door doesn't lock with remote, only manually. Driver side panel also fails to operate any/all windows. Other doors lock normally when alarm/lock is clicked. Also after turning ignition off the radio would stay on for some time, now it doesn't, and btw my fuel & water pump took a dump last summer. Any guesses or suggestions?
#246 of 292 CHEVY TRAILBLAZER EXT 2004 Ignition Problems
Feb 07, 2012 (7:31 am)
I am also having many of these problems. My car wont start if it sets for 2 days or more. It starts with the radio resetting. It just happened this am, I stopped on the way to work, got back in my suv turned the key. I heard a weird gear noise then the radio clock reset. This has happened intermittently for the last 2 years. I have had the security system reset twice because the car will not jump start and I can't get the key out. I have gone through many batteries and a lot of stress, mechanics say its not the starter, its not the battery. BUT clearly it is something. please help
#247 of 292 Any one want a 06 Trailblazer??
Feb 07, 2012 (12:43 pm)
I bought it with 25k mile in 2007. In 08 the check engine light comes on and the codes read cam sensors. I take it to Chev and they replace the cam sensor, cam actuator and fuel gage in the tank get replaced and $726 dollors later I have to return the car 3 days later the same codes and the fuel gage reads empty. They have the car another day and they replaced teh fuel gage with a faulty one and say the cam issues are the car needs regular oil changes. Well per the owners manual I replace the oil when the sensor tells me or 5k miles. So the light has remained on since and I can not get the car smogged. Now I live in a county that requires a smog and no way to get this hunk of chevy crap fixed. Pretty sad when the dealer blames the problem on an oil change. By the way I have had pretty much all the electrical issues listed in the fourms but they have been intermintent.

#249 of 292 Now I know why they named it TRAILBLAZER!
Feb 15, 2012 (7:06 pm)
You get to blaze a new trail when you are on the road!
Ok...low beams go off and on at will. Replaced all fuses, had so much service, checked wiring, problem still happens and we can't figure out why. On a cross country trip, we spent more time in Chevy garages than on the open road! New plugs, new filters, new ignition switch, and lots more. Now the Check Engine Light is still lit, lights still go off, and now...when we add gas, the car runs rough for the first few minutes! Sometimes even stalls! The right hand outside mirror is frozen in space. But most of all...we can't run it in two wheel drive. NOISE comes out like as if we are popping popcorn! We had a complete new transmission several years ago. Chevy garage is no help...since it is all intermittant! HELP! we spent over $6000.00 on the road getting it road worthy enough to drive through the Colorado Mountains and Reno Mountains! Still not running right. HELLLLLLP
