Question about 2003 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

2003 blazer shuts off while driving, then battery light shows

The truck starts just fine, but several times it just shut down while driving. I would stop, the battery light came on and it would start again just fine. I has put a hitch light on the truck but took it off thinking that was the problem. It drove for about a week with no problems, then today the same thing happened but now it won't start.

Ck engine light not on,but motor shuts off periodically ,today shut down driving several times,motorran rough and exaust smelled bad,hr later fine

run fault codes for recorded faults that are giving you these problems. Do not disregard an engine light and continue as it is there to let you know that serious engine/ gear box is about to happen and that can be a costly mistake to make.

Shutting Down

Could be a relay, fuel pump, ignition coil, or several other things.
The charging system would only affect the condition of the battery.

Take a fuel pressure gauge for a ride --tied to wipers

See if your loosing fuel pressure when it quites ,or see if
that data is avail on scan tool

Some brands of pumps don't last long,so I heard & see from
other experts on here

I guess a relay for fuel pump could have a bad primary coil in it

Try switching them around-- to something else you don't need

Sounds as if dimmer slider/switch is going to ground on this model the headlight switch should have a dimmer thumbwheel, if it is all the way up and then you feel the indent and that should turn the inside domelamp on, if it does not the switch is bad. also check your vanity mirror covers, sometimes the little pins that shot off the light when you close the mirror covers stick open and run your battery down over night or in a few hours. Charge battery and then check these lights first, depress white pins to shut off.

When I am driving the car just shuts down. then I wait about 5 to 10 min and it starts back up and runs fine. Any Ideas??

Next time it shuts down, try the engine immediately but listen this time for the fuel pump to prime, you may have to open your door and listen toward the tank. If you don't hear the fuel pump, then that may be the culprit.

Engine shut down while driving.....

needs a new alternator, going down the hill, your RPM's dropped and all of the draw on from the electrical system came from the battery, and caused the battery to die too
