Looks like some component of radio has a loose electrical contact(most probably the power cable) and its attachment points on the radio. Tighten all the electrical connection points visible & try to listen for any crackling or sparking noise coming from the radio and try to pinpoint it so now you know where something could be loose. Try to make sure all connectors are snug tight...sodeep

Why is hot air blowing from the vents when I turn on the ac in my 2003 chevy trailblazer


You are probably out of refrigerant / freon. You can take it to a mechanic or go to an auto store to buy refills. They sell the small canister with stem for regular joes to refill yourself, at a much lower cost than the mechanics.

2004 Chevy Trailblazer, At first you could only get the air conditioning to switch on by turnning the vehicle off and switching over to AC. Now the AC will not come on and it is always blowing hot air out...


Could be your main blower motor resistor, mine would still run the fan even after shutting off the vehicle.(safari van) Had to unplug the resistor to stop the fan,it was near the blower under the hood. Bought a new one for about $45 bucks. Replaced it and all is fine. Might want to check relays first, sometimes they stick and need replacing.
Good luck.

Chevy TrailBlazer heat won't shut off


most gm cars use electrily controled temp actuator door on top of center of heater case . if move the temp lever to hot or cold you should see the door arm move sometimes the arm will move but the door dosent there is three wires too the motor one 12 volt one ground and one return to the hvac modle head controls there are different colors for the return wire.basically you can un hook the arm and move it manunlly to see if it makes a difference at the vent while the ac system is on.the way test for the problem is to check the voltage on the return wire at the motor and ground with a dvm meter you should see a vary voltage when slide temp controls from hot to cold . more than likey it is hvac control head but check first they are costly.
