Question about 2002 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

2002 chevy blazer, while the children were playing with the door locks and the remote locks at the same time, the security system was tripped and the horn started to blare and the lights stayed on which started the car by its self and wouldnt shut off. then it started to smoke from the right side of the engine which the fire department told me that maybe it was the starter that was probably burned out and may need a new replacement. I'm going to get a new starter in a minute, but what would i do to reset the system so that I dont have this problem again.

I believe the problem is much greater than just your starter, sorry to say. So many systems were overloaded that internal damage was possibly and likely done to the circuitry of the security/ keyless system for the car to start and starter remain engaged.
My advice is this- for the safety of your family:
If it starts and seems to be OK, before you take it anywhere ( I would have it towed), take it immediately to a GM certified or reputable shop and have a thorough diagnostic of all systems performed- you dont need another fire or system failure while your driving!

    always check ebay for parts, i have save up to 75% on parts and it only takes 2-3 days to get them. just example, autozone wanted $120 bucks for a egr valve, i got it on ebay and it was a delphi part, i got it for 79.99 shipping included and no tax! thats a great deal. also i got a rear hub bearing for my 2003 pontiac with the sensor in it, autozone wanted $130 bucks, ebay 29.99 shipping included, took 2 days. also no tax. please check it out, it will save you a ton of money!

2002 chevy Blazer 2 door. Power locks,and liftgate stop working.The locks will engage when I shift to drive and will disengage when placed in park. Where do I start?

Plz explain...are the locks supposed to lock/unlock when you put the car in Drive/Park, or not?

Does the lock/unlock SWITCH on the DRIVER'S door work/not work? If applicable, does the PASSENGER's door lock switch work?

Try locking and unlocking the driver side door with the key. Door lock should be connected to the factory "security" system.

Can't find the keyless remote module under steering column to reprogram my remotes 1195 Chevy Blazer

Here is what i found for your 95 blazer. Hope it helps a little bit.

1. Locate the red two wire programming connector located near the central
locking control module. Behind LH lower instrument panel.

2. Inside the red programming connector you will see two pins.
Jump the two pins with a section of wire. A paper clip bent in a "U" shape will also work.

3. System should now lock and unlock doors to indicate vehicle has entered
programming mode.

4. Press any button on keyless remote once. System should now lock and unlock
doors indicating the keyless remote has been programmed.

5. Repeat step 4 to program the other remote.

6. Remove jumper wire from programming connector to exit programming mode.

7. Test Remote(s).

2002 Mercury Villager, security system keeps going off and door locks and unlocks on its own.

You may have more than 1 problem. You should go to Autozone or similar and ask for a scan. The battery should be checked for shorts also. If the battery is alright you want to check the big cables on the battery. The ground wire to the engine and the starter wire to the starter under the car.

The security system can go off if the noise or vibration trips a sensor in your vehicle. A loud car, airplane, or car door slamming can do it. Check your times for a neighbors activities. The dealer or alarm company may need to desensitize the alarm. Autozone has a tester for your remote keypad.

There is also a place on the menu in some vehicles "info center" to reset the doorlocks to lock automatically when you first drive away. There could be a bug in the system.

2000 chevy blazer security system making doors lock and horn blow while driving. Also wont start when less than a quarter tank of gas. Just had the fuel pressure regulator cahnged less than two months ago....

Possible malfunctioning remote control or receiver. Try removing the battery from your remote (keep it handy) or take the #2 remote instead to see if the problem persists. Right now, it could be in either one of two places. Another thought; if you have never replaced the battery in your keychain remote, it may be overdue; 13 years is even way past the 'shelf-life' of these.

Reprogram keyless entry

It took me a few attempts to program a new keyless remote for my 2002 Chevy Blazer.
Insert key into ignition but don' turn it yet. While holding down the UNLOCK switch on the door, the trick is to cycle the ignition ON OFF ON OFF as quickly as possible then release the UNLOCK switch. If done correctly the door locks will cycle 1x to acknowledge. Then hold both the unlock and lock buttons down on the remote for about 15 seconds. The locks should cycle again to confirm...Hope this helps.
