2001 blazer possible electrical issue

I have a 2001 chevy blazer with some weird electrical issues. Some of the things going on include the brake light staying on, no rear turn signals, no sound from the raido (although it used to come on if I held the lock button down on my door, explain that!!) now it wont come on at all. I changed all bulbs, tried a new multi-function switch. Still nothing. Any suggestions would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks.

    Also, when I turn my car off, the brake light on the right stays on and then kills my battery everyday! I bought the car at auction and noticed that it has a box installed on it from what looks like a "buy here, pay here" car lot so that they can shut the car off if payments are not made. I am wondering if any of their wiring could have messed with and caused my problems?

Start with a new brake light switch that is located along the brake pedal.It was a good call to relace the multifuction switch the light do go through that switch. Now to the door lock in order to turn on the radio. you have to hold it down when you are pressing the switch down and the radio turn so some one borrowed power to that circuit and that is our clue. This is all related. You may still have a aftermarket alarm that is still attach inspect and remove it if is installed.Look under the dash at the steering column

SOURCE: know if my 95 chevy blazer has a spider CPI?

A spider injector is located underneath the intake plenum and this is multi-port. Otherwise you have a throttle body injector system. Vortec engines have spider injectors and they are super expensive to replace ($400.00- 850.00) each ! There is only one spider injector for each engine it has 6 legs/fuel tubes that go to each cylinder.

Why won't the headlights turn on?


This vehicle has problems with the multifunction switch AND the hazard light switch. Try turning the switch on and move the hazard light switch back and forth up and down. If that's not it, I'd look at replacing the MFS. There is a TSB on the MFS, but typically for the brake lights not working. Look in this to go over the steps to take to diagnose also.

i would check the pedal itself, then pull the drums and try adjusting the brakes, if you havent done this in a while to clean and adjust them you might be better off replacing the shoes, all springs and adjusting them till the drum just starts to drag and rechecking the ebrake, if this doesn't help you will probably need e brake cables and possibly a pedal assembly if it is binding

2001 chevy blazer 4x4 check engine light flashes on highway no codes?


If it blinks and goes away, it is a "random misfire" that culminates before the light begins blinking. Sustained misfiring will result in a code, and the light staying on. If the light blinks and goes away, the issue is intermittent. Your problem usually occurs under acceleration or heavy load. The issue can often be solved with new spark plugs, though it could also be dirty injectors. The injectors on that vehicle are infamous, however I have been able to fix your problem with repeated use of highly concentrated fuel system cleaner. I use at least 3 times the recommended concentration of whatever cleaner. People rave about Sea Foam. I have used it and it works -- though I can't say whether it worked better than other brands I have used. I have owned 3 Blazers and 2 S-10's, including my current 2001 Blazer LT.

You should check your vacuum lines make sure they are all connected plus the line you keep disconnecting is collasping onto its self which in turn will make the brakes stick so you must have one of the ends plugged.

My Chevy blazer wouldn't start mad a clicking


this is one of two problems (maybe both) ...
1. The battery has been fully discharged before, preventing it from being able to hold a charge properly. This can be tested at a Sears Automotive Center. If the battery is no good, get a replacement and you should be fine (at least for a while). If you are going to go to Sears, have them run a full electrical diagnostic -- if there is something draining your battery while the car is not in use changing the battery will only hide the problem for a few months until the new battery fully discharges, and the same issue with resurface.
2. Your alternator is not charging the battery. It might be pumping out electricity to the wiring that it is connected to, but the charge may not be getting all the way to the battery. Sears can also check this with their diagnostic tools, and should be able to locate and repair the problem for you. Unfortunately, without a VERY expensive diagnostic machine, it is very hard to tell exactly where the problem is occurring .. so taking it in to a shop is probably your best bet.

My brake and ABS lights on the instrument panel stay on. My bakes have plenty of pad left on them. Could the fuses be out? Also, where can I get a fuse schematic for the 2001 Chevy Blazer 2 wheel drive,...


Need to have a scanner put on vehicle,to determine the issue. Most likely, a bad Wheel Speed Sensor.
Purchase an owners manual,so you can look up fuses and bulbs. HELM.COM

My brake lights dont work on my 2001 chevy blazer. Bulbs are good and fuzes are good. The center high mounted light above the rear hatch works fine. Just no other brake lights work. Any help?


A very common issue with these is the multfunction/turn signal switch in the steering column.GM has a recall on this problem you should contact your local dealership have your VIN number to see if your vehicle is included in the campaign. If so the repair should be minimal cost or no charge to you at all.

Brake light on 2001 chevy blazer LT 2wd


When my blazer did this they had to replace part of the wiring harness in the steering wheel. It took forever for them to get the parts because we live in nowhereville, but once it was in it works again and no problems. I had to take it to the actual chevy dealer because none of the other places had a clue. good luck.
