Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

When driving, I can hear a whirring noise, at the same time my battery light flashes and my headlights and inner lights go dim and get bright in time to the whirring noise. I feel like there's a short somewhere but I'm not sure where.

Sounds like the alternator is bad. take it to a local Major auto chain,even sears and they will test it for free. If you have a volt meter test the voltage at the battery with the lights on. Should be above 13 volts. hope this helps.If you need more help get back to me and we'll go from there. Please rate my fix as i strive to be the best Thanks Ray. PS the whining noise is probaably from the bearings in the Alternator

if you are saying that the dash lights go dim and bright while driving it could be a loose connection of the wiring harness behind the speedo nacal.

Headlight are dim


check output of the alternator as there may not be enough current produced to keep the battery charged. Check drive belt tension and condition.

Headlights only work on bright


i had this happen with my dodge ram 1500. the guy i bought it from put 350 dollar moon lit lights in with leds and they looked impressive but the issue was that they didnt go bright and i could only see 40 feet in front of me and i was sure taping led flashlights would have done me more good that those stupid headlights. then i had the idea of if the brights work and the dims dont then that means no electricity is getting to the dims so i decided to bridge the power from the bright headlight to the dims and it made all four work. now they all work, and only on bright. so im figuring there is a issue with the wiring in the truck. so this is a temporary solution if you really need just plain old lights like i did because i live out in the country

On dim all four headlights are on, but the inner


first i would want to know that all the headlamps are in good working order. it kind of sounds like these are also bad bulbs. you will also need to look for good ground wires just behind the headlamp assemblies. to answere your question, YES. if things were not repaired properly and without attention to detail then you could have wiring issues. on the plus side it doesnt sound too difficult. try these items first.

99 cavalier battery light comes on but new battery....


it sounds to me like it could be the alternator im afraid but the only real cheap way to tell is time. if you continue to drive this and keep a check on wether it still starts or lights dim, with it being a new battery it is going to take a while fot it to go flat. if it does then try not to drive it too much as this will break it and cost you even more.
