Question about 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

Vehicle shuts off and will not start back up right away. P0601

When I'm driving or just sitting there with my 06 Chevy Trailblazer running. Truck will just shut off for no reason. I try to start the truck up again right away and it will not start. I have to wait 30 secs to a min before it will let me try to turn it back on. The vehicle has a check engine light on that reads. P0601 internal control module memory checksum error. I need help. Problem seems to get worse when its hot.

What that means is your engine goes into protection mode and shut's off this is mostlikel;y do due to low coolant level or low oil level/pressure. have this checked by a qualified tech. diagnostic equipment must be used to clear the code after the problem is solved in order for your vehicle to run properly

    The Code P0601 the Powertrain control module memory error which means it is probably gone bad. My 06 trairblazer is doing almost the same as yours only difference is when it gets hot it runs.

2002 Chevy Impala wont start after letting sit after it warms up


Almost sound's like vapor lock , the fuel boils in the fuel injector rail , turns to vapor ! That was a common problem with carburetors , letting the vehicle hot soak after shutting down the vehicle an letting it sit for 10- 15 mins. The fuel would boil away ! Are the cooling fans working ? After turning off a hot engine the cooling fans can run on without the key being on , do you hear fans run ? What engine does your impala have ? 3.4 or 3.8 L . Has the check engine light come on ? The fuel pressure regulator could be leaking fuel . Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator after shut off the vehicle , is there fuel coming out of the regulator ? Dribbling out the end of the hose ? This could be bleeding the fuel from the fuel rail ! Good luck , hope i've given you something's to check that you haven't already .

check for any vacuum leaks, check for fuel pressure too, sometimes the gas pump,fuel filter,or fuel pressure regulator fails, does your car have the check engine light on? if so must pull the trouble code in order to fix the problem, Thanks

Battery light on my 2004 chevy trailblazer. It lasted a day then all the ABS breake light came on the the battery drained. The truck shut off. What could this be. I bought a brnad new battery 2 years ago.


The battery light comes on when there is an issue with the charging system. Most likley you have a bad alternator. With the engine running you should see a min. of 13.5 volts at the battery and better yet 14+ volts. If you have 12.5 or less than the alternator is not charging.

Once the vehicle is started the battery is no longer in play. The alternator is what keeps the power supply to the vehicle and recharges the battery for the next time you want to start the vehicle. Once battery voltage drops below 9 volts or so systems start to shut down. Eventually the battery will drain enough that the engine management system can no longer function and the vehicle will stall.

The code P0601 means the internal memory of the PCM (computer) has failed self-test. The PCM may need to be reflashed or replaced. The other codes will probably go away after this.

All warning lights flashing on dash of my 2002 chevy trailblazer. Runs fine all gagues go dark and turn back on every now and then. Also the gagues all go to the right or stick half way like I am idling at 5000 and going at a speed of 60mph when I am sitting still. I am thinking it has something to do with my computer because the rest of the truck is working just fine.
