Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer
CHANGE THE ABS SENSOR
Posted on Jun 09, 2009
Check the brake light switch at the pedal. However an overheated/melted
bulb base means arcing to me. So, BOTH sockets are probably slightly
corroded & rusted. You fix that by scraping the terminals inside
the socket with a pocket knife or screwdriver. Clean with alcohol or
contact cleaner. If the new bulb isn't tight, and can be moved back and
forth by hand, bend the contacts inward slightly, but don't snap them,
they are spring steel. I was wondering when somebody would ask this
question. I fix them at least to once a month - not the same car, but
all GM's, and when fixed, they're good. Use logic if centre
safety/brake light works.
The remote start sounds normal. There are many different types and they are quirky.
You should scan for codes with an OBD II scanner. If the problem was in the brake light connections or is fixed at the pedal, erase codes. It could be, by coincidence, and in no relation whatsoever to this problem, that a front wheel bearing sensor has gone - they do that, and require a new hub assembly.
