Question about 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

Wont start--not even try--electrical components going nuts. Thought battery might be low--tried to charge and AC and radio came on--key not even in ignition. Has to have a dead short somewhere. Battery has sulfer smell after being connected a few minutes. Any suggestions? It was running fine last night. Thanks!

    I had originally checked the voltage of the battery--the voltage was 12.4--so I thought it was good. I took it to the parts store to have them put it under load, the battery only had 171 CCA's. Put new battery on, and it started like a champ. Thanks for your help!

My battery light has been coming on and off for a couple of weeks now and saying "Service Battery Charging System".


Have your charging system tested. The battery light is turned on when there is a charging system problem causing an over/under charge condition. You may possibly have an alternator problem. If the battery is not being charged properly, the computer will start shutting down electrical components for protection and to keep enough voltage supply to enable the vehicle to continue running

My car wont start and electric systems seem to be spacing out


That sounds like most systems are being under-voltaged, check the battery voltage and charge it or replace it if necessary

06 f 150 5.4 put key in and electrical goes nuts without even turning key inside lites go on and off radio does same some times door chimes sometimes it don't meter says 12.6 volts at battery can hear...


You have a bad battery or a bad connection to the battery.
Put your meter on the battery (not the connections to the truck but the battery posts themselves) and measure the voltage when you try to start the truck.. It if stays at 12v then you likely have some kind of connection issue. If it goes low then you have a bad battery.

My 03 x type jag wont even try to turn over? Dash lights are fine but windows, mirrors and starter dead! All the dash lights and monitor and radio work but wont even tryto start? Transmittion wont come out...


Sounds like all of the high drain devices are disabled due to a weak battery. You are still getting dash lights and radio because they are very low drain devices. Try charging the battery to test for now. It could be a failing battery, or your alternator and or voltage regulator could be going out and not charging the system. But first, try to charge the battery, and see if you can start it, if you can, let it run for at least 10 minutes. If your alternator/VR is going out or is already out, you should have a guage, or idiot light telling you that you have low voltage. If its a light, you should see a red battery lit up on the dash, if its a guage, it should be directly in the middle +/- a little. If you are able to run the vehicle for a while with no light coming on, or guage showing low voltage, its safe to say you drained the battery, or it is failing. If its a few years old or more, i'd go ahead and replace it. Hope this helps :)

You left the key too long in the ignition switch. This sent an alert as if it were being stolen. Remove the key from ignition. Lock all doors. Wait about an hour or so. When you open the doors, put your foot down on the gas pedal and release. Put the key into the ignition and turn the car on.  Make sure you have the shift in "Park" position.
