SOURCE: 1997 Chevy blazer not shifting

This sounds like a wiring issue, check and make sure the transmission connector is ok, no broken locks on hard shell or bent pins.

SOURCE: 2003 chevy trailblazer does not move

Does it sound like it is in neutral when you have it in gear? If so, your linkeage from shifter to transmission needs to be adjusted. If you follow the cable, you should see an adjustment for it.
Turn to right to tighten it and left to loosen it.

If it tries to move but doesn't, it may be e-brake stuck. Most likely linkeage needs adjustment or vacuum line came of tranny.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy 1500 P/U 4x4 small V8. Transmission shifting issue.

you may be confusing the torque converter clutch engagement with o.d. this trans has a problem with the T.C.C. regulator valve wearing out the valve body bore. this will cause the converter clutch to engage only sometimes or not at all. this will set a P1870 code in the control module. when this code is stored in the controller, ( check engine light may or may not be on), it increases the pressure in the transmission causing the 1-2 shift to be harsh. ask a local tranny shop to scan the vehicle ( most will do this for free) if this is the problem they can either fix your valve body (sonnax parts) or replace it with an upgraded valve body. hope this helps

Check your bushing on the shift linkage. These tend to break, very common. Dorman offers a repair bushing.

Have you checked transmission fluid recently. If the levels are low and/or if the dipstick smells burnt, there is a good chance your transmission is shot. Check it out & let me know; may have another idea if the fluid level checks out.

All that was wrong with my 2002 Trailblazer was a 6.00 part my husband bought at PepBoys! It's the plastic grommet/bushing that broke that holds the shifter cable to the linkage...took him 10 min to fix!

The end of the shift cable has broken, there is a plastic ring at the transmission end of the cable that breaks. You will need to have it towed to the mechanic.

My husband turned off our Chevy Trailblazer without putting it in gear and now it won''t start and the gear shift is lock up. What do you do to fix it????


first make sure battery isn't dead because if he cut it off in gear then the switch couldn't cut the power off and it'll run the battery down and there is a electrical solenoid that allows the shifter to move if theres no voltage than the shifter want go into park and the ignition switch want turn off.
