Hey Tie it turns out that is was not the key, I knew this was too good to be true. I thought in the first place that it was the neutral safety switch. Can you tell me how find and replace that switch? And by the way, it will not start in gear. I have to just keep moving the gear shifter around until it will make the connection to start.

Thanks, Jody

I just want to tell Tye thank u, I thought is was the safety switch also but after checking into it further, I found out it was only the key that I was using, it was really worn so I tried a different one and it started fine. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply to my question though.

It sounds to me like the transmission safty switch has gone bad. Does the car start while it is in gear? this also would point to the safty switch

Trail blazer gear shift button

Could be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to turn the key lock to the unlock position, move the shifter out of park, then start the engine in neutral.
The shifter and the shift lock solenoid would need to be inspected.

My 2002 pontiac grand prix will not start unless u play with the gear shifter alot.what is the problem

Sounds like the sensor is not working on the gear shifter. It tells the ecu it is in park to allow the engine to start. That's where I'd start.

I put a 95 s10 blazer trans in my 94 fullsize blazer can it be done and work

If it is binding it may just need the pinch bolt loosened and repositioned to eliminate the binding condition.

If it has to do with Park or Neutral start switch- that is on the column independent of linkage.

If the gear shift indication is off, that is a cable link to the dashboard beneath the trim at the bottom of the dash.

I only have 1st gear in my 95 s10 blazer whear do i stary

Manual or Automatic? Manual, I would look at the linkage. The pins that hold the shift forks and rods can break causing only 1 gear.
Automatic, should have reverse as well. If not or very weak then the clutches have gone out. Drop the pan and see what the fluid looks like and if there is debris in the pan.

95 Chevy Blazer Gears off + back gate & window won't open

Those are two different issues.
1. your gear selector (PRNDL) not showing exactly what gear you are in is not that big of a deal unless you are not able to figure out the gears (sounds like you got it, and YES IT IS SAFE TO DRIVE).
2. if the fuse is ok you might have to take some where ot diagnose why not working. just because they tell you what will fix your issue does not mean you have to let them! (fuse relay wiring or latch not exactly sure what is going on?)
