    somewhere you are loosing a connection, its time consuming to find, use booster cable to connect ground from battery to engine and engine to body, i think you will find one of them is bad

How do I rest the Service indicator for a 2005 CLK Cabriolet? None of the suggestions listed below worked for me.


First make sure all of the doors, hood, trunk, etc are closed.
Turn the key to position 1
Press system select button(lower left buttons on the steering wheel) that looks like sheets of paper until you see mileage reading or temperature displayed.

Press the brightness button on the lower left instrument cluster 3 times. You should hear a signal and see voltage on the display.

Turn the key to position 2

Press the lower scroll forward/back button(steering left arrows)). You should see "service indicator" on the screen

Press the Brightness button again once. You should see oil type on the screen.

Select the oil grade you used by pressing the + & - buttons on the upper right on the steering wheel.

Press the scroll forward/backward button to confirm. Confirm oil reset, press R(brightness button on lower left on cluster) for 3 seconds should appear on the display.

Service confirmed should appear on the display.

Press the upper forward/backward button & "service indicator" appears on the display.

Press the upper system select button(lower left steering wheel button on left) The display should go back to basic mileage or temperature.

If all else fails. I believe the shortcut I took as a tech was, turn the key to the first position, scroll until you see the temperature or mileage displayed. Turn the key off, push in the brightness button and HOLD it while turning the key to the 2nd position. You should see something like do you want to reset service? press R(brightness) button for 3 seconds and it should reset.

Good luck. The newer cars are worse.

2006 Trail Blazer . . Key will not turn ignition. Yes the key is in right and in all the way. Tried pressing the brake and jerking steering wheel right and left. Still doesn't turn . . .


Have the shifter linkage checked. Sometimes the linkage gets damaged or loose and doesn't go all the way into park. This can keep the keep the key from turning.

Trail blazer won't start. Can not remove key.


CHECK YOUR BATTERY CABLE CONNECTIONS SOUNDS LIKE ONE IS NOT MAKING A GOOD CONNECTION. TRY TO CLEAN THEM AND REINSTALL. CHECK FOR SHORTING OUT CABLE BETWEEN POSITIVE POST AND STARTER.

Where is the pcv valve on the 2005 chevy trail blazer


Dear hispeed3,

If you haven't bought the part yet and are planning on replacing it ...i'd go to the auto parts store and ask them for the part location. They are usually glad to do this. I know Advanced Auto Parts does this for me.

2005 CHEVY +TRAIL BLAZER ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS ON


if chains caused problem and you have driven with them off light would have gone out once it saw everything working properly. look at sensors might have pulled a wire loose with chains. the abs system runs a self test everytime you start vehicle if it sees a history code from last time it will leave light on and look to see if that problem still exists and 99% of the time it will cut light off . but need to have scanned and checked out

2005 CHEVY +TRAIL BLAZER ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS ON


When the ABS light is on when driving there is a problem in the anti lock brake system and you will need to have it tested to find out what the problem is. As long as the light is on the ABS has been shut off by the computer until it is repaired. There could be problems with one of the wheel speed sensors, wiring or the ABS pump. On some vehicles the red brake light will come on too.
