Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Intermittent electrical shutdown

The engine will shut down at random time. It seems to be associated with the ignition key. All dash lights and accessories work as if the key was in the acc. position but the engine won't run. This even happens when going down the road at speed. So far, shut down only last for a split second to a few minutes. Turning the key on and off often fixes the problem.

It sounds like the fuel filter is near to the end of it's life and needs to be replaced. The filter is located at the inside frame rail just forward of the transmission cross member. if you have not replaced the fuel filter before, you may want to take it to a shop that can replace it for you like pep boys. Just call around for the price and if your up for replacing the filter your self you can get the filter at Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instruction and have loner tools to disconnect the filter from the fuel line. Good luck and hope this helps

Intermittent electrical system shutdown


I would look into the starter connections, the power for the system is tied into the starter, loosen and tighten the connections at the starter, if you have a power distribution box under the hood make sure all the connections to it are clean and tight.

Mazda Tribute 2002 engine cuts out randomly


I had a Mazda 626 with a similar problem, the car seemed to 'shut down' with no warning, even at highway speeds, as if I just turned the ignition key to 'Off'; After trying to fix it unsuccessfully by replacing several electrical parts, the problem was found to be a defective ignition switch, it was replaced and the problem went away.

Sudden shut down


Hmm, this sounds like a electrical problem involving the ignition control module (computer) or the body control module.  They may not be bad but they are not getting power.  This could be due to one of many connection or relay problems.  Unless you know how to diagnose electrical problems yourself, you will need to get it to the shop.

Electrical sytem? inconsistently shuts car down


These engines have a sensor known as the Crankshaft position sensor, they are most of the time the part that causes these problems, it is located on the front of the engine, it gets it's signal from the crank pulley/harmonic balancer, if it goes open when hot the engine dies, when the sensor cools back down the eng will restart.

1996 NISSAN MAXIMA SHUTS DOWN FOR 1 FULL SECOND!!!


It sounds like your car has an intermittent open current feed problem. Has there been any electrical/component repair or replacement recently? If so, that would be a starting point for diagnosis. Sounds like an ignition switch type problem. If you had an intermittent battery connection, the car would continue to run from the alternator output, but would not cause the warning lights to go through their initial "bulb check" sequence. But if "on" voltage is lost at the ignition switch, or that circuit, it would.
