Question about SES Trims Pillar Posts Chevy Trailblazer 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009

1 Answer

I have a 2006 chevy trailblazer. Sometimes when I turn the key nothing happens, then I do it again and it starts up. Today I was driving and the truck just stalled out in the middle of the street.

I took it to my mechanic and he said he thinks it is something with the ignition, but he is not sure he recommends I take it to the dealer. However, I don't trust them and they are very expensive. What could this be?

It can be either a fuel problem or electrical. Your best bet is to research the internet. Is the check engine light on? if not, then start trouble shooting the fuel system from the tank to the injectors. The other issue would be electrical. check battery connections from the battery to the starter to the coils. 2006 is near the end of poor parts that GM used, so check ignition starter. Unfortunately there is no easy answer. Check the internet to see if others had the same issue and had a solution

How would i check to see if my fuel pump in going out on my 2006 Chevy trailblazer? What are some of the symptoms?

If you have a way to check the fuel pressure, that's a good starting point. I'm not sure if a 2006 Trailblazer has a fuel filter or not, but if it does, you should consider replacing that to make sure that's not the cause of the symptoms. Often the symptoms of a failing fuel pump are long starter cranking times before the engine starts, or the engine won't start at all. Additionally, a cold engine may start just fine, but after driving for a bit, shutting off the engine, then starting it again within a few minutes, the engine will fail to start. The duration of the short rest would be something like running in to do some grocery shopping, etc.

My 2002 Chevy Trailblazer loses power at times. I wil be driving 60 MPH then suddenly I cant drive more than 30MPH it sounds like I have a flat tire. If I shut my car off and wait about 5 minutes it runs...

the running issue seems to be the convertor clogging up. need to have backpressure test done to see for sure. the electrical issue sounds like the ignition switch or the orange ,pink,or yellow wire going to the switch. both are common problems with the trailblazer.NOTE if the vehicle has less than 80000 miles the convertor will still be under factory warranty (EPA guidelines)

2007 Chevy Trailblazer won't start

the ignition switch is a very common problem with these vehicles. when the problem is occuring check the pink wire coming off the ignition switch and see if there is power. the computer controls the starter on this vehicle and if there is insuficient voltage going to the ecu it will not power up.

2006 Chevy Trailblazer makes THUD when accelerating

Check your coolant level, low coolant or air in your cooling system will make a "thud"noise in your heater core when the engine is under load from acceleration. The coolant rushes in to the heater core where the air pocket is trapped and then your hear the noise.
Start with the simple and make sure your coolant level is correct and then try to purge the system to remove the air out for your coolant system.

06 Trailblazer that will not start

Try putting the geashift in neutral when starting the truck. If it starts every time this way, your neutral safety switch or park interlock switch is broken. Let me know if this helps :)
