Question about 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

Open Question

Having problem with 2003 TrailBlazer sounding like a bus or jet and trying to die or losing power so changed fan clutch essembly but now have clicking noise as well as sounds like a bus when running. The service engine soon light has come on with P1481 code now which tells me poor electrical connection or wire rubbed through or failed fan clutch essembly. What else would cause this code.

SOURCE: i replace the fan clutch and i still have the code

TSB#05-06-02-012B: Service Engine Soon (SES) or Check Engine Light On, DTC P0480, P0526/P1481/P1484 Set (Replace Engine Cooling Fan Wiring Harness) - (Oct 19, 2006)
Subject:
Service Engine Soon (SES) or Check Engine Light On,
DTC P0480/P0526/P1481/P1484 Set (Replace Engine Cooling Fan Wiring Harness)
Condition
Some customers may comment that the Service Engine Soon (SES) or Check Engine light is illuminated. This condition may be intermittent and upon investigation, the technician may find either DTC P0480, P0526, P1481 or P1484 set.

Cause
This condition may be caused by the cooling fan harness chaffing against the plastic guide it routes through. This
contact may damage the insulation of the wires enclosed in that harness.

Correction
Replace the engine cooling fan harness using the procedure listed below.

1. Remove the cooling fan. Refer to the Cooling Fan and Shroud Replacement procedure in the Engine Cooling sub-section of SI.

2. Place the cooling fan assembly on a bench.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector from the cooling fan clutch.

3. Remove the harness from the plastic guide while feeding the wires out of the slot.

4. Before installing the new harness, wrap the affected area on the wires with electrical tape to keep the protective sleeve in place. Be sure to keep the tape approximately 25 mm (1 in) away from the connector so the wires can be fed into the slot.

5. Feed the wires into the slot and install the harness to the plastic guide.

6. Connect the harness electrical connector to the cooling fan clutch.

7. Install the cooling fan. Refer to the Cooling Fan and Shroud Replacement procedure in the Engine Cooling sub-section of SI.

2003 chevy trailblazer cooling temp running 230


Smart man using a scanner for the actual temp. Assuming you're not losing coolant....2 things I'd look at here, 1st is you may have air in the system, make sure to purge all the air. 2nd is your fan clutch, I've replaced a few fan clutches in my own Trailblazer. Have had them bad right out of the box brand new. Have had bad brand new fan clutches on 2 of my last Trailblazers. You should hear it engaging especially in stop and go traffic.

2002 TRAILBLAZER SOUNDS LIKE A JET TAKING OFF.TROUBLE CODE PO495. WHAT DO I NEED TO FIX THIS.


This is your fan clutch, that's what P0495 is, your clutch is not working properly. Therefore, it sounds like a jet because the fan clutch is constantly engaged. Very common from 2002-2--2004 TB's. Need to borrow some specialty tools like fan clutch wrenches from say Autozone, some Autozone's charge a fee and refund it when you bring it back. Been there done this with my 03'.

2003 Trailblazer loses power, I am getting codes P1271 and P1271p/d


#PIT3138A: 02-05 Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile and GMC Mid-Sized Utilities Reduced Power Light On and DTC P1680 P1221 and/or P1271 Stored in the PCM - kw fan clutch SES light power MIL 4.2 LL8 - (Nov 1, 2004) 
The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom described in the PI.
Condition/Concern:
Reduced power light on and DTC P1680 P1221 and/or P1271 stored in the PCM 
Recommendation/Instructions:
Monitor the 5V reference to the Accelerator Pedal Position ( APP ) sensor, circuit 1274, using Peak Min/Max on a Fluke 87. Refer to Si document 1454678 for the 5V reference schematics. Command the fan clutch control "on" with the Tech 2 at 50%. If when commanding the fan clutch on, the 5V reverence spikes to battery voltage, the concern is the 5V reference shorted to battery voltage intermittently inside cooling fan clutch. Replace the fan clutch to repair this concern. 

Please follow this diagnosis process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed. If these steps do not resolve the condition, please contact GM TAC for further diagnostic assistance.
Models:
(02 - 05 Chevrolet Trailblazer and Trailblazer EXT) and (02 - 05 GMC Envoy, Envoy XL and Envoy XUV ) and (02 - 05 Buick Rainier) and (02 - 04 Oldsmobile Bravada)
