Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Wire splicing I recently had a chipmunk make a nice little home under my hood up on the right side(From sitting in SUV). It ate through the ABS and oil gauge wires and possibly the CD player wires. I am wanting to just splice those wires back together and was curious if anyone knew of the gauge so that I could replace those or if there are issues I might not know of. I am pretty new with car repair.

In the world of wires the lower the number the heaver the gauge wire, the heaver the wire the greater the load it can carry. To get not only the right size wire but type remove a small piece and take it with you to the auto parts store to match. Also try getting some liquid tape to bend the splices it works far better than traditional tap in weather proofing.

Might want to check the driver's side door sill for a splice that is corroded.

In the SCab, I have seen this closer to the driver's side kick panel, wheer the hood release is at ( still in the door sill ), on the SuperCrew, I have seen this splice at the back, where the wires turn up the C-pillar.
Here are some pictures from other people that had this problem.

The front, the wire with the bad splice was reported to be a blue w/ White stripe wire.


When it is found in the back, it is a violet wire

The additional reported problems I have seen vary from the dome lamp & radio won't go off, to the power mirrors also do not work.

Worth a check in this area, to see if you have a bad splice. The tape used is like hockey tape, and does not work well when water is sitting in the channel that the wires are in.

Wiring schematic for plymouth grand voyager 1995

Is there green corosion on the tip of the wire ? Chances are the answer is yes. You will have to detach the fuse panel/box and run a new wire and connector to the fuse panel. Splice into the wire you can see, but make sur you cut enough of the wire off to get rid of the corrosion.Hope this helps.

I can't get my trailer lights to work. I don't

First check the bulbs; remove them and check the sockets for corrosion. You can clean sockets with a battery post/cable wire brush. Shine the bulbs brass with a little sandpaper, also the end. Put a little dielectric grease in there. Use a multimeter and check that you have voltage coming from your tow vehicle. Go from the the wire to ground, then go from the wire to the trailer's ground. Bad grounds are the most common cause of trailer wiring problems. They also cause lousy coffee in the morning. Check your wires for bad ends, check your wires for nicks and fraying. If you've found a bad spot in a wire, cut it out and splice it with a **** connector. If need be, splice in a section of wire. Wire should not be black but nice and shiny. If it's black up into the covering, cut out that section and replace it. Have a nice time at the lake.

2001 Jimmy ABS and brakes lights came on

I hate to say it, but the abs control module might have died on you. Thats the boxy looking thing under the hood that has a lot of brake lines and wire connectors going into it. I have seen this happen before and it ended up being one of the speed sensors on the wheels but usually its the module. Take the truck somewhere to get the light scanned, and that will give you a better idea of what it is.

Need simple diegram for horn

I'm looking to see if my book has a picture. I found the horn itself behind the right wheel well cover. My 1996 horn was nicely corroded from being exposed to the elements. I spliced the wires and mounted the new one under the hood.
