2007 Trailblazer starting problem

About 3 times in the last week my trailblazer was slow to start when the key was turned. Tonight, my vehicle died and would not start for a few minutes. Eventually after sitting, it did turn over and I was able to start it. This vehicke has about 28,000 miles on it. What's wrong?

    I have a 2007 trailblazer LT w/ 37,000 miles. Over the past few months I'm having problems starting it. All the lights come on as usual it just won't turn over. I had it to the dealer and of course it started fine. They cleaned the battery cables and few other wires & it worked for a week or two. Now it's back to the same inconsistent starting/not starting pattern. I guess I just need to replace the starter?!?!??! Help!!

    I had a problem when I 1st got the 1st trilbalzer, when they 1st came out.

    They couldn't figure out what the problem was. They had my truck for OVER A MONTH! They replaced the computer inside and everything.

    The problem was for me. I was start it up, to warm it up...As soon as I put it to Drive, a bunch of alarms would turn on...and then wouldn't get out of 1st gear...so I would have to drive it back home. When I take it to the dealership, it would be fine. That happened TWICE.

    The solution.

    There is a wire, that goes from the gas pedal to the engine. The wire or whatever it is was bad causing it to screw up.

    Hello teamgriffey thank you for choosing FixYa.com for your answers my name is David,

    So you say your vehicle has recently started to slow start.

    My question is Does it make any kind of strange noises or clicking sound when you try to start it

    or does it turn over normally just not fireing up.Because slow starts can range from a big list of items from the battery ,the starter,the ignition coil the list goes on and on Is your trail blazer 2wd or 4wd v6 or a v8 I will do my best to try to help you out but i need to know these things in order to find the right solution for you.

You should take it to your local garage or dealer and have them hook it on a computer that would be cheaper in the long run for you because from what you are describeing it could be a list of things.

2004 trailblazer problems


Check for OBD2 codes, primarily a code indicating PCM memory is corrupt. My Trailblazer at times wouldn't turn over and start. Nothing at the key. When you attempt to start the vehicle and you turn the key to the start position, the PCM sends a signal to the starter relay to start the engine. Youtube video showed a mechanic warming the PCM with a hair dryer, and it would start. Tried it on mine and it started fine. If it is the PCM, the remedy is PCM replacement. Got mine from pcmforless.com about $100.00. They had to program the new PCM with the vehicle vin number. Once installed no more problems.

the ignition switch is a very common problem with these vehicles. when the problem is occuring check the pink wire coming off the ignition switch and see if there is power. the computer controls the starter on this vehicle and if there is insuficient voltage going to the ecu it will not power up.

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition


Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.

2006 Trailblazer won't start


I have had a similar problem with my 06 Trailblazer SS. Took it to the dealer and apparently this is a common occurrence. They replaced my key cylinder and explained that this was because the cylinder was intermittently not completing the start circuit. It seemed to work after that. Now in the dead of winter I am having more starting issues with the vehicle.
