Possibly different tires sizes or bad speed sensors combined with a bad transfer case encoder motor? Try "thepartsladi" eBay store if you have to buy the encoder motor, beware aftermarket parts on Bravada!

2006 trailblazer factory installed DVD has sound but no screen. The screen intermittently comes on, it stays on once it works but if we turn the vehicle off, we get the intermittent behavior. Has an

the factory dvd decks are designed to disable the dash display when the car is running, to negate distracted driving. the factory wires the rear seat dvd displays only to work when car is running, and the dash to work only when the car is either acc, or, possibly, in park.

if the dash is intermittent, and, especially, if the dash display has some dvd video while running(or, more dangerously, when in drive) then a previous owner likely tried to bypass this safety feature by crossing wires under the dash, and did a poor job.

otherwise, lcd screens can become intermittent, in regards to powering on or off, if the backlighting regulating circuits start to fail. this would be an issue with the deck itself, and is merely due to old age (nearly 8 years)

. the hallmark of this problem would be if you were to hold a flashlight to the screen, and see a faint display,- simply lacking the florescent back-lighting.

The dashboard lights and gauges keep going off and and not working. At times every single thing cuts off, stops working and lights turn off. What could be causing this problem?

Sounds like it could be the multi pin connector on the rear of the dash module loose or an intermittent Earth connection. Check this connector as well as for a poor/loose Earth wire bolt either behind the Dash or near the Fuse Panel.

The airbag light comes on in the dash cluster

Ummm, a broken airbag is a big deal to me! I like my head, and want to keep it un-smashed. My airbag light started coming on when I was driving and turned corners. Turned out my clockspring connector was broken. A replacement was around $130 and was very easy to install. Just disconnect the negative on your battery, then pull the airbag module by removing the two (I think) 8mm bolts from behind the steering wheel then pull the airbag off and carefully remove the connectors from the back of the airbag. Now (I'm going from memory here...) use an impact wrench to back off the steering nut, and use the puller to get the wheel off. Last, remove the screws connector and pop off the old clockspring. Put the new one on (Don't forget to pull the retainer AFTER you install the new clockspring) and reassemble everything else. The wheel is keyed so it only goes on one way, don't force it, the wheel nut will seat the wheel.

Service engine soon light

a check engine light or service engine soon just means you are not meeting emissions. definitely not a big deal.
go to autozone and have them do a free scan and get the fault codes.

Also, try this first - disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour and see if it turns the light off. Drive for 10 miles and it may run rough until it relearns your engine controls.
let us know results.

93 Villager "manual" code read procedure

This info is in the PS/ED Manual. (Powertrain Controls/Emissions Diagnostics).

You should just go to a dealer and have him run scan and give you the codes. It should cost about $75. Or, call your local parts stores and find one that will run the codes for free.

A check engine light on staedy just means you have an emissions failure. Not a big deal.
If it flashes, that is a big deal.

Dash board lights out and tail lights working intermittently

Looks like a bad headlamp switch. Poor contact inside the switch contacts will cause this issue.
