Ok here is what happens to mine and please tellme if yours did the same thing. If it sits overnight and I go out to start it, it turns over but doesnt start. If i wait about 10 minute sometimes more and turn it over sometimes it will start sometimes not. It took me over an hour to get it started last week, but once it is started it will turn over everytime after that with no problems. I just want to be sure that you had the same issues before i install a remote start. Because if my problem is different it would be a waste of money. Thank you

Mine was not doing this before BUT now it is.... I dont know what to do at this point.. At time it wont start and the security light isnt blinking. It still does the security thing BUT now it does this also.... OOOHHH and jlflemmons thanks for the info but as I said in my original " It feels like it is vapor locking" I know that it is feul injected and cant vapor lock. I have put a little logic in to the problem and I still feel is it a piece of #!$.....

So, by remoe starter do you mean a new key fob? I asked at the dealer, I can get one for $70. My alarm sysytem gets set and then won't let me in - even with a key. I've found if I wait, then reset it form inside the car with the key in the ignition after a while it does shut off and let me drive. Otherwise, even with the key, I'm s.o.l.
The thing is, I'd rather disable the whoel thing. Anyone know how? Is it hard? If I have someoen do it, how much should it run? I'm a former toyota girl and am CLUELESS as to what to do with this!

I have been told you cant disable it. You have to fix it. I dont have the keyless entry thing on my keychain..... The remote start is a way to start the car from inside the house or from outside the car.

Ive have my 01 Blazer ls for about 6 years now. the only major problem ive had happened about 2 years ago. Had to replace the fuel pump(that was fun dyin on the highway in traffic!) and I had to replace the cat converter(made the car run like total crap and actually died on me going up a mountain) which i think might be one of the problems being discussed on here by some. I am also having the "I dont want to start for you today" fight with my truck as of late, I dont have a keyless entry system on my truck so i dont know wtf is wrong with it now. I've put a new fuel filter new plugs, i'm fanatical about oil/filter changes, i've even put a new hot wire to the starter(old one wore out-damn those dirt country roads!) So I hope my fight with my truck might offer some insight into some of the problems you guys are having.

I had another blazer before this one and it was doing the cough cough thing when it would get up to normal tempature. I called my grandpa, a chevy man from the begining of chevy, and he told me to change the ignition module. He said there is a jell stuff between it and the distrubutor and if that brakes down then it wont work right. I went to get one, Im a woman, and was told OH NO it cant be that its this...... Over and over and nothing they were selling me fixed the problem. Finally after about $500 I bought the $40 part. My husband put it on and BAM the problem was gone. Should have listen to grandpa from the start!!!!! GOOD LUCK!!

All right to sum this issue I'm having up....I turn the key and it cranks.I do have spark.However the fuel pump doesn't engage.Not even to prime.Have replaced the keyed tumbler in column as well as ignition switch.Have removed all the after market crap that previous owner installed.So now is bone stock.Have checked relay and fuse.Both are fine how ever relay does not click.Have bench tested the fuel pump.It does work on the bench fine.Have considered adding a backup harness to the fuel pump.(relayed of course.)To engage the pump manually.How ever before I do this, (have done same before in a 90 camaro)I'd like to try changing the oil pressure switch and or sending unit.Have been to auto parts store and seen the switch.How ever CAN NOT locate the blessed thing on the engine any where.Could someone please give me a location and or explanation? Thanx.....Bill

98 blazer won't even crank. The key on you can hear the pump working, also the starter contact relay under hood is engaging, all lights and dash lights come on, chimes work, battery fully charged, The security system has been suposedly removed by some so called mechanic shop. tried to giggle the shifter in the park position and also the neutral position. open for any and all suggestions.....
