Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

2000 Blazer, no power to seats. I cannot locate a fuse in side panel on dash inside drivers door or the box under the hood. Someone told me there is a separate relay under the dash near steering column? Does anyone where switch or relay is that controls the power seats?

It is not a fuse it is a circuit breaker, it is in the dash fuse box.
There have been many of these with wet carpets on the left side. The wires run under the rug to thepower seats seat. I've seen a few of these where the orange power wire to the power seat has actually rotted from water under the rugs! If there is no voltage to any wires at the switch, remove the kick plate the lift the rug to see if this may be your problem.
here is a wiring diagram.

    This is a common issue so I will Post this reply to the same problem from a Blazer forum.

    I've posted a few responses on this one already, so will respond here as well. I had the same problem, power seat would not move. I checked the voltage at the two power plugs located under the seat, and found that I only had 10.9vdc present. My seat was all the way back as well, so it is possible to removed the seat in this position. There are plastic covers that mount on the seat bolt studs, just pry straight up on them with a large flat blade screwdriver and they will pop off (on the back two posts, my covers popped up enough for me to squeeze a 15mm open in wrench underneath them to get on the nuts).

    Once the seat is out, peel back the carpet enough to expose the floor on the drivers side.You will see a plastic channel that is run under the carpet that houses bunch of wires. Open the channel, pull out the wires and look for the reddish/orange wire. It will feed into a connection with three additional wires of the same color. The single wire is power from the fuse box, the other three wires then feed power down to the two connectors located under the seat (one is for seat movement, the other for lumbar). Not sure where the third wire leads.

    Anyway, that connection where the one wire connects with the other three was severely corroded. I cut out the bad wires,spliced in some new wire, and this gave me12.5vdc at my plugs under the seat. I reinstalled the carpet and seat, plugged in the connectors, and the seat worked great.

    Thor, your problem is with the movement switch.The hot wire from the plug feeds a connector on the back of the movement switch. The switch applies two hot leads to each motor. One hot lead feeds reverse movement, the other forward movement. With the switch in the neutral position, both leads to the motor are hot, which locks it in place. Moving the movement switch in one direction removes one hot leg to the motor allowing it to move in that direction.I would recommend that you ever so gently remove the movement switch from the backing plate that houses the wires, clean the copper posts, and then reinstall. It may be just a bad connection. If this doesn't do it, you may need to replace the switch.

    You can be adventurous and try opening up the movement switch itself. But be forewarned, it contains a bunch of copper plates that slide to make contact with other plates. Be very careful that you don't let these fall out of place. Mine did, and it was like a jigsaw puzzle to put back together. It took numerous tries on my part before I got it back together correctly. You can use an ohm meter to check it's operation as well.

There is a problem with water getting under the rugs on these and causing corrosion problems and the wire rots out. The fuse is in the box and you can test it with a light or a meter. Then you need to pull the kick panel off and lift the rug especially if it gets wet and check the wires that are there. Chances are that you will find the rotted wires.

Fuse box location please

  • Open the drivers door and look on the 90 degree angle (side of) the dash. You will see a little access panel that when removed will expose the dash fuse panel. There is also one under the hood as well as some relays under the hood.

M y radio stopped working on my 2004 trail blazer

The 2004 Trailblazer has two fuse panels, one in the under hood and one under the middle row seats. The radio fuse is marked RADIO fuse # 41 and is a 15 amp fuse located in the rear fuse panel. To access the rear fuse panel flip the seat behind the driver to the upright position, under it you can see the fuse panel and a diagram should be on the under side of the cover. 

Good luck and hope this helps.

2000 Blazer. No power to the orange wire for either front seat. Which fuse or relay controls the frt power seats? Its not listed on the fuse box covers and I do not have an owners manual.

The orange wire is the power wire for both seats.It gets its power from the power seat circuit braker (20 amp) located at the body relay block.It is located behind left side of dash near fuse block. Remove circuit braker and check for power in body relay cavity that you pulled the relay out of if power is on one side change circuit braker and if no power on either side then you have a bad main fuse near battery or under hood in main fuse block.
