When I shift into drive, my blazer dies. I had it jumped because it wouldn't start again, drove another 10 feet, and it died. Had it jumped again and it died again. There was some buzzing and clicking sounds coming from the dash. Any suggestions?? It's sitting at the shop right now waiting to be fixed. Is it something I can fix myself? Please help! Thanks so much!

this is one of two problems (maybe both) ...
1. The battery has been fully discharged before, preventing it from being able to hold a charge properly. This can be tested at a Sears Automotive Center. If the battery is no good, get a replacement and you should be fine (at least for a while). If you are going to go to Sears, have them run a full electrical diagnostic -- if there is something draining your battery while the car is not in use changing the battery will only hide the problem for a few months until the new battery fully discharges, and the same issue with resurface.
2. Your alternator is not charging the battery. It might be pumping out electricity to the wiring that it is connected to, but the charge may not be getting all the way to the battery. Sears can also check this with their diagnostic tools, and should be able to locate and repair the problem for you. Unfortunately, without a VERY expensive diagnostic machine, it is very hard to tell exactly where the problem is occurring .. so taking it in to a shop is probably your best bet.
Its likely the fuel pump its not the coil . When was the last time you had the fuel filter changed. No matter its not your fault. I personialy owen one of these a 96 4.3 this is a problem with these vehicles 95 through 99 that i know of and i think even later modals. They will last 10 years if your lucky and don't put a lot of milage on them. The pump is in side the fuel tank and the tank has to come down to replace the pump. But they fixed the problem and if you repair it you should not ever have this problem again chevy got away with one it should have been a recall. Sorry its not happy news at christmas but i see 10 of these a day same problem you have same years
Well odds are that your blazer is fixed by now. Either way sounds like a bad battery, that's why you need jumps all the time. Why it would die, there are too many possibilties off hand. So what was wrong with it?
