Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

Buying a 98 Blazer, seems to be in good condition. All the dealer has is a small, funny looking key (says it is a GM key). How do I know if it's supposed to have a Fob, etc., and after just reading about all of this "chip" stuff, should I be concerned?

Your key should be a chipped key, if they do not have it then before signing your paperwork, have the dealership get a key made for you on there expense. That can lead to many problems for you down the road and would make me myself and most mechanics wonder why there is not a chip in the key, is there a problem with the ignition control module??? With the ECM??? So forth. I would investigate this a little more before proceding.

It should have all the details in the driver manual. Check it out, the dealer should have one with the car. If he doesn't ask him to get one, you're going to need it in due course, just for regular maintenance.

My Wife lost the keys to her 92 chevy blazer.I got a new ignition cylinder & key I had to force the old cylinder out. Put the new one in and it wont turn forward .So I tried to start it by turning it...


GM cars have a passlock system that uses a transponder and reader from the key to start the engine. Just changing the key and cylinder was not going to start the car. The cars BCM ( body control module computer) has to be programmed to match the new key and cylinder. You will have to take it to a dealer or an automobile locksmith that specializes in ignitions. Taking out the box was the worst thing you could have done. Now you have two things that need fixing. All you had to do was take the cars vin number , your registration and maybe tow it to the dealer and they would have cut you a key and programmed it for you.

Need key for 95 Chevy Blazer lock on spare tire


If this is a factory GM lock, then your GM Dealer can provide you with any key once you provide him with the VIN number. The Ignition keys with the computer chip in them are quite expensive though.
I've gone to scrap yards and taken a handful of keys and have been successful in finding one after 20 or so tries.
Hope this helps.

2007 Impala rear tire wear due rear wheel spindle rods


Nick52284,
I have gone thru 3 sets of good tires now. Tires lasting from 10-12k miles before they hit cords. This is after the dealer does an alignment to spec. Funny thing is I have never seen the alignment specs from the dealer, I only get "aligned to spec". My wear is on the inside of the tires just as described in the police bulletin. I have tried different brands each time and get the same result (wear to the cords in 6 months or less). The bulletin only applies to the police version becasue GM doesn't want the bill for the thousands of ordinary customers repairs. There are enough complaints of this exact thing on any Chevy site that you can find. We aren't all nimrods.

You may be a guru, but I think you don't know what you are talking about.
