This has been a regular problem on the 4.2 vortec motor. Usually the Throttle Body has to be cleaned. Even with as many as 30K miles. Easy process.. When you do this you must unhook the neg battery cable to reset the PCM. They make a throttle body cleaner (different than Carb/choke cleaner). You can get it at any parts outlet. has a article describing the whole process step by step. Takes about 30 minutes. Do a search in the article section under throttle body cleaning

What causes our 2002 trailblazer to shut off every time we connect the wire to the air condition accummulator

Problem could be the AC compressor going bad, or more likely, the throttle body needs to be cleaned thoroughly front back sides. Also, the PCM (computer) needs to be reset to allow it to relearn to the newly cleaned TB.

What's the problem?

You make it sound like you never need a technican
or skilled mechanic to diagnose any vehicle,sorry,they
are very high tech & beyond the driveway fix, of thirty
years ago

You have a check light on
So you should know that we would need any codes
you should have gotten by now

Need a repair shop to diagnose

I can't believe in the past 20 years, you have not had a check
lights & vehicle issues at least once a year

Dealer says compressor for air cond needs to be replaced. i dont think s because when air cond is off still makes the same noise.what do you think? joe oh is a 2004 trailblazer

Get a second opinion. The ball bearings do go out in these compressors prematurely, but will only make the sound when it's on or engaged. You may have another pulley making the noise, or the tensioner, or possibly idler pulley. Could be many things, but doesn't sound like it is the compressor making the noise. Could be a failing water pump too...... Take the serpentine belt off, and turn the engine on. Do you still hear the noise? This little test will eliminate a few possible problems for you.

Check engine light on

I would think there is a problem with a sensor which my be an IAC Sensor. That makes the idle air control Hi or lo depending on what the motor is calling for. Have a shop take a computer reading and see what sensor is bad, As for the air There is a Air condition Amplifier and there may be a problem with that its not common but sounds like it may be the problem with your trailblazer. I sure hopes you out Flash68, If not get back to me and we can trouble shoot some more. Take care Bear001
