Question about Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

This question concerns a 2007 Trailblazer LS. My brake lights fail to illuminate when the brake is pressed. The center mounted brake light illuminates, the turn signals work as does the back up lights. The fuses and bulbs are good. I replaced the tail light circuit boards, but still am not able to get lights to work.

2004 chevy impala brake light isses switch has been replaced and so have fuses and bulbs still no lights


Do you know how to test using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? Is there B+ voltage going into the brake light switch ? An coming out when the brake pedal is pressed ? What fuse's ? There is only one fuse for the brake lights !
The BRAKE SW fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the normally-open stop lamp switch. When you press the brake pedal the switch contacts close and battery positive voltage is supplied to the left and right stop lamp assemblies and to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL). The left and right stop lamp along with the CHMSL are grounded at G302.
Do you know about the right insturment panel fuse box ?

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

Why is my ABS system kicking on for no reason on my 2009 trailblazer?


There is ALWAYS a reason.
Reasons that the ABS light will illuminate:
  1. Brake pads, brake shoes, rotors, or drums worn beyond allowable specification;
  2. Brake fluid level low, or brake fluid leaking;
  3. Failed ABS control unit;
  4. Failed ABS sensors at wheels

Trailblazer no brake lights


As in the previous comments the brake switch wire goes to the turn signal switch and the third brake light. Since the 3rd brake light is working, the problem is in the turn signal switch. When the switch is centered, both brake lights have 12v to them. When you make a left or right turn, the switch has to switch connections between the turn signal blinker and the brake light circuit for the appropriate illumination of the proper light sequence. Buy a new turn signal switch and temporary plug it in. You will see the proper operation.

2006 trailblazer ac only blows on #5 speed. Replaced blower resistor & control panel. Also on any lower speed ip lites up i.e. abs, traction control,e-brake &seat belt?


****, you can check some more but from what I am reading your problem could be related to a faulty ignition switch. I am sending you a copy of some fixes.. you can compare to your condition..
Best of Luck to you..

2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS 4.2L, Vin S, Eng Cfg L6
Customer Concern: No blower motor function. AntiLock Brake System (ABS), Red Brake Warning Light (RBWL), Traction lights all on. Radio does not work. Tests/Procedures: 1. Check for battery voltage at fuses #31 and 39 in Rear Fuse Box under the rear seat.

2. If the voltage value is less than battery voltage, check the Orange wire at the 48 cavity connector located at the base of the steering column at pin D1.

3. If the voltage is low at C201 check the voltage at pin "G" of the ignition switch.


Potential Causes: Ignition Switch


2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS 4.2L, Vin S, Eng Cfg L6
Customer Concern: ABS, Low track light comes on intermittently. The heater blower motor quits running, 4WD not working. No communication with the ABS. If you disconnect the ABS computer and plug it back in, it may work. Tests/Procedures: 1. Test voltage at HVAC 30A, 4WD 15A, HVAC 1 10A, BRAKE 10A, TBC RUN 3A labeled fuses in the rear fuse block during the problem.

2. Inspect connector 101 38 cavity connector mounted along the underhood bussed electrical center. This harness may be routed tightly around the underhood fuse block, causing chafing or connector terminal contact that could induce any of the concerns listed.

3. Clean and secure ground G110 located on the lower left side of the engine block. Potential Causes: Damaged Circuit 300
Damaged Connector C101
Improperly Installed Engine Compartment Harness
Malfunctioning Ignition Switch

The switch is fine if the third brake light is functioning. Even though the tail lights work, the filament for the brake light can be burned out. Sometimes they look intact but are still burned out. Replece the bulbs.

What could be wrong with rear brake lights on 2007 Trailblazer if fuses in rear seat compartment are OK and tail light bulbs are OK?


Remove the tail lamp housing and test for power at the wiring connector. Does the center high mount stop lamp operate correctly? The lamp circuit boards have seen many problems.

Dash lights


sounds like a problem in the abs brake system, you will need to take it to a dealer to be diagnosed.. it probably won't cause any driveability issues but is definitely a safety concern..

Center brake light illuminates, but LH/RH brake lights do not


LH/RH lights cable could be disconnected anywhere, will take a long time to trace.
Center Brake Light and LH & RH should be connected at one point.
Jump a cable from Center Brake Light to one of Rear Break Light.
Hope this will works.

2002 Trailblazer LS left rear brake light fails to light. Replaced socket assembly and bulbs with a set that works and it still fails to light when brakes are applied


I have the same problem with my 2004 Trailblazer LT. Driver side brake light does not illuminate. All other lights work fine. Replaced bulbs. Still does not illuminate. Cannot figure out which fuse goes to this light. Could it be a fuse?
