2003 Chevy Tracker with electrical problems


It seems more on colder days but on warm days too, the heater fan blower will stay on after removing the key. I have had to turn off the switch to the heater. Other times, the headlights will come on after the key is removed. This eventually runs down the battery. When we jump start the car, before it is fully charged, a relay under the dash near the steering wheel will click for a while. It clicks a lot, when the battery is so dead the car won't start. Any ideas?

    Thank you for posting this... I have the exact same problem with my 2004 chevy tracker. Mine is still under warranty and I have taken it to the dealership 4 times to have it fixed. The problem has not been resolved nor do they have any clue whats going on with it.

SOURCE: headlights flicker all the time

Hi, my name is ricky and im 24 yrs old and from Bronx, N.Y . I bought my 03 impala in 04 and i had the same problem in 2007 in which that clicking noise happens. The headlights flicker, and even the gauges inside the car would flicker at times. It has nothing to do with fuses or a relay, please dont spend money on that b.s. like i did..lol I will try my best to explain what i did so that you can save some money and time. READ EVERYTHING AND USE ADVICE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
1st of all - I went to a junk yard/auto salvage yard to find a USED part that i needed. Often there are good parts from cars that have been totalled.
2nd- What i asked for was a Body Control Module. This controls most of the electric issues you are having and costed me about 50 dollars compared to a new one that was over $200 and reached up to $500.
3rd- I went head first under the steering column and found where the BCM was located. Poke around to find it cause it is def. there, hidden well. It doesnt take special skill to remove it or find it.
4th-Replace the BCM, but be advised that after you do this, your car might not crank over.My car did crank over because i installed a automatic starter previously so i could have started it with the remote start.
5th- you MUST take the car to a chevy shop so they can Program your car to the body control module this costed me about $250.
All together this information has to help you in someway.
If you have further questions or would like to make a comment, then e-mail me at " gyalflexfameh@gmail.com "
I hope this helps...im not saying it is a 100 percent guarantee for you, but i had this same problem recently and this was the answer to my problem. By the way, never buy a american car again or a GM product for that matter...Kudos

SOURCE: 02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key

your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

Check the water level. If the water is low it will not allow water into the heater core to produce heat. If there is water keep an eye on your temperature gauge It should reach at least 140 to 170 degrees. If it is staying colder than that you have a stuck thermostat which is allowing the water to flow to much and not let the engine warm up. The only other solution is if the fan is not working properly replace the fan relay for you blower.

1998 Ford Contour. The heater blower stopped suddenly. I checked all the fuses, good. I removed the blower and hooked it to 12 volts. Whoosh! It almost spun out of my hand. I checked the plug into the...


I dont know what these other guys are saying..I think they snif the glue!!! YOUR BLOWER FAN ASSEMBLY CAN EASILY BE REMOVED !!
1. Remove the wire
2.Find the "tab on the housing and pull it down while rotating the fan housing counter clockwise. This will remove the fan assembly. Plage 12 volts on the contacts to test the motor. If it works then the resister pack is blown. On the fan housing (near firewall ) you will see a plug going into a square looking box with a screw in it. Remove the wire then remove the screw to remove the resistor pack.. A new resistor pack is around 20 dollars at a ford dealer. Hope thie "FREE" info helps!

You need to have the cooling system/heater core tested for leaking. Those symptoms sound like the heater core has failed.

Blower stays on when ignition is turned of.


The sensor is probably defective as it keeps the fan on regardless of water temp. Get it replaced.

Most major auto part chain stores have a loaner code scanner (they require you to leave your ID while you use the tool in their parking lot). There is a connector under the dash near on the drivers side that accepts the reader....check the codes and Google them for repair info or post them back here.
