This problem can be caused by a defective electric fuel pump pressure check valve, when it fails air get into the fuel system after engine shut down and this causes hard starting, to confirm this is the problem buy a can of spray starting fluid and next time you have a hard start spray the starting fluid into the air intake of the engine, if it fires right off then you have an issue with the fuel system. Also have the engine control computer scanned for codes and check the ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor for proper value with alive data scanner.

    2004 trailblazer. Low beam headlights go out while driving at night for no apparent reason. Saw other posts like this on other sites. How do I fix it and are they doing a recall for this? Thanks


    I read over the recalls and they do have recalls on brake and turn signal lights but not the low beam headlights while driving at night.

    Sounds like the relay or headlamp driver module relay 46, for the headlights is going bad, though.
    Or, it could alternatively be bad grounding of wire somewhere or bad wiring in general.

    I would check in the underhood fuse box for the relay and see if wiggling it to ensure a good connection helps matters.
