Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

When I turn the key all power turns off. I check fuses and none seem to be blown. If I wait a why power is restored. Battery is not dead. I got it to start but it runs really rough and will not idle. It dies if you take your foot off of the gas. There were no symptoms leading up to this. I just had the water pump replaced. Not sure if that has anything to do with it. Help.

    I meant to say if I wait a "while" power is restored.

You have either faulty fuel injectors #1 or a clogged fuel filter 2 ,,my other thinking is your vehicles last thinking is you had your water pump changed which highly leads me to think it is jumping time ..go to auto zone and have them read this free your money and time this way

all still may need to be looked at by the garage

SOURCE: Key stuck, won't turn, won't shift...replace ignition switch?

Try to shift your key in either direction while try to turn your steering in left and right direction. May be its steering lock which is attached to your ignition key preventing shifting of key. If not, then its obviously your ignition that has gone.
If you decide to change ignition then as a last try Dip your key in lubricating oil and then insert in ignition to turn it on. May be it can help.

SOURCE: in park the engine dies; only will run if given gas

It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy s10 runs for a few minutes then dies.

I doubt very much this is electrical. Rather do a visual inspection for vacuum pipes that are leaking or have become dislodged especially around the throttle body(Where the throttle cable is connected to) and plenumb chamber. If you find a place that looks like a pipe needs to be connected there, hold it closed with your finger and see if the revs pick up slightly. If it does then look for the pipe that needs to go there. You shouldnt have any pipes hanging loose around the engine bay. If you dont find anything on the engine itself follow every little pipe to where it goes/connects to and do the same. This costs nothing and a mechanic will charge you an hours' worth of labour for doing the same. The engine's fuel/air mixture is being leaned out somewhere. You can perhaps have the CO content tested to confirm, as this is relatively inexpensive.

I have a 2004 suzki xl7 is anti theft is not allowing my car to start. The battery lugs were connected wrong, while jumping another car and now my car won't turn over. How can I fix this?

connecting the main car battery backwards can damage some electronics

got you, no meter.
tow it to a shop, or

1: check all fuses, cab and hood.
2: do the head lights work ( it takes no key to do that) if fails, fix this first (fuses are blown)
or battery is dead or installed backwards.
3: turn the key to on.
do all normal warning lamps go out, after the delay
or are they dead, if dead fuses ARE BLOWN.

4: THE CEL lamp must glow key on or the PCM has no power, (fuses again) "check engine lamp"

5: the Immobilizer lamp must go out, key on, or the IMMO is not happy, it does just as the name says.
IMMO lamp in the cluster, tells you this,fact.

there you go 5 steps

fuses that look bad are in fact bad.
fuses that look ok, need to be tested, due to possible hair line cracks,.

Windows, Locks, And speakers not working. No blown fuses

On some cars when you disconnect the battery for whatever reason certain electrical areas will not be restored to operation after the battery is reconnected. You need what they refer to as a radio code to restore radio and other circuits to operation. The code should be in car manual. If not contact the dealer for the radio code for your car.

you blew the fuses? IG-coil fues above left knee, USA car.
or FI fuse, same spot.
1: key on, does CEL Lamp come on. no, then fuse blown.
2: .you check spark at all 4 spark plugs and there is non
3: you check spark at the coil. there is none. no HV
4: you then insert the diagnostic jumper in the DCL jack near battery
and you should see the CEL flahs 12's (happy time 12s)
you crank the engine, over for 4 seconds i bet the CEL
no longer flashes 12s but now 41, or 42s?
bingo. (ask)

see the paper clip check here.

if the CEL lamp is dead, post that.

No power ig when turn key

old posts zero answers. what year, no year stated.?
great post, Key does nothing" clear
and is called NO CRANK, if it cant crank it cant start (m/t push starting might)
any time its a no crank,
check ALL FUSES.
1: if A/t wiggle gear shift (P then try Neutral) N might work.
2: if M/T , wiggle clutch , near floor pressed.

if CEL lamp is dead, key on, the fuses are blown.
the CEL must glow key on, or Fuses blown.

My steering column is locked and I cannot get the key to turn to start the car. I have a 2008 pontiac g5.

The battery dead? Remove the battery cables and wait and then see if the key will turn. If it will not remove the key ( will it come out?) the key can be the wrong one ( maybe) you can have a blown fuse. Any fuse so you need to check them all. If the key will turn with the battery disconnected then put the car in park and turn the key off and remove it from the car. with the window down and the doors all closed and the hod open reconnect the known good ( charged Battery) with the battery connected don't open the door but reach in and put the key in and start the car. the doors should lock when the engine starts. reach in and unlock the door and get in and close the door. then turn the car off and remove the key get out and close the door and lock it with the key. wait a minute and then unlock the door with the key get in and drive away like normal. do everything though or you'll unset the reset cycle. Make shure that the break lights work as they control the unlocking feature of the collum.

Have a 99 crv. turn key over and vehicle is totally dead. checked battery, it is ok. thought a fuse may have gone bad but the fuse cover has mysteriously disappeared. any thoughts?

Check if lights or other electric items on the vehicle are also not working.
If all power is missing, re-check battery terminals for corrosion/loosness, including the battery ground chassis connection - if battery and connections ok, look for a blown in line master power fuse or fusible link.
Ensure power is present on the main power bus at the fuse/relay control panel.
