Question about 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

Vehicle won't start

While traveling in my vehicle, all the gauges started doing crazy stuff and all of a sudden it stopped. When I turned the ignition on the gauges acted very funny with a hissing noise, then when I tried to start it, it did,nt do anything....absolutely nothing. After an hour trying, it finally turned over. Ever since, it did the same thing every once in a while. Now it does not start. All the lights turns on, the gauges acts funny with a weird hissing noise.. but the engine just does'nt crank over. It may take upo to two hours! The battery and alternator are brend new.

    I am working on an 02 trail b. with the same problems, It does not crank when the guages are jumping then after a randum cycle of key switch it will crank but not start. I have a code of 1000 ind. a class 2 data link problem this would ind. a problem with communications from dash to PCM not sure if key switch is problem. may be voltage drop across it. I will test further. Any insight would be helpful I repair cars in my spare time. usualy problems like this are caused by passkey problems but light on dash goes out.

On my 2002 Trailblazer, when I start the engine, all my dash warning lights on and gauges stop working, the speedo and tach still work.


There is a known problem with the ignition starter switch that causes this, this is the switch that the ignition key operates when you turn it.

Replaced ignition switch in 1999 chevy cavaliar rs, anti-theft light comes on and stays on and won't allow car to start and remain on or run


You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the ignition on until the THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off (about 10 minutes). Turn the ignition switch off. Leave the ignition switch off with key in for about 10 minutes. Attempt to start vehicle.

My 2004 Pontiac Grand Am ignition switch all of a sudden with the key will not turn on or turn at all for that matter this has not happened before Why ?


It sounds like your telling us the key won't turn in the ignition anymore for some reason. If that is the case the problem is one or more of the tumblers in the ignition have fallen, if this is the case you will have to replace the ignition itself or at least the ignition core. If you mean the key turn but the vehicle doesn't start I would start by disabling the alarm system you installed to eliminate the starter kill switch as the source of the problem. Also, if this is the case try jumping the vehicle. If it turns over and starts with a jump your problem is the battery having a dead cell in it. It can have all the world but if you have a dead cell it doesn't have the amperage to turn the starter over.

Very possible you may have a faulty voltage regulator. I would have it tested which many places do for free.
