Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

1997 Blazer dash displays ABS light, Air Bag...sometimes battery light.

I think there is an electrical or computer problem with my 97 S10 LT Blazer. Previously I had periodic or occassional problem but now it is consistent. When starting the vehicle, the alarm lights in the dash display...ABS, Air BAG (flashes), No digital display in the information center on the dome light computer (outside temp, fuel range, MPG, light fields display but no digits or data). My windows are down and they will not go up whether using the drivers master switches or whether I use the individual door window switches. Air Conditioner will not work. PLEASE HELP.. Is it the computer or do I have an electrical problem. Diagnostic computer at the AUTO CENTER does not detect anything since it is not related to the "Service Engine Light". THANKS!

    Current problem: Anti-lock brake and brake light come on, heater stops working and power windows stop working. Then they all start working again. Then they stop :(
    Previous issues have included windshield wipers periodically stopped working (finally replaced wiper motor), . Ex had supposedly fixed the heater problem last year, don't know what exactly he did but it wasn't a real solution apparently.

    same problem here. when we try to raise the windows, the ABS light comes on followed by the parking brake light. then they both turn off. windows dont move and sunroof makes a repeating click sound.

I think your BCM which is the body control module has failed, have a self test run on it to see if it will give any codes, if it won't test then it is the problem.

My 96 blazer was running fine then battery light came on and abs light and air bag lights came on and then engine started missing.

Blazers aren't necessarily known for bad ignition switches (which it sounds like), but I would suggest a battery problem ( known more for this). Check the battery connections, especially the positive post. Make sure the connections are tight and no corrosion. If the battery checks out good then I'd suspect the ignition switch failing. The ABS and AIR BAG lights will come on when the battery gets low.

1997 chevy s10 blazerdash wont light up when key

the dash sound's like a fuse, check the fuse box under the hood and in the door jamb on the side of the dash, also check your fuel filter and fuel pump, im betting on the pump because i have a 2001 chevy blazer that has had two replaced and it has 233000km on it!
