20 Most Recent 2006 Chevrolet Blazer Questions & Answers

Hi there:

Your vehicle is equipped with StabiliTrak, which combines antilock brake, traction and stability control systems and helps the driver maintain directional control of the vehicle in most driving conditions.
Traction control activates when the controller senses wheel spin. StabiliTrak will selectively apply the brakes and reduce engine torque to help regain traction.

Stability control activates when the controller senses a discrepancy between your intended path and the direction the vehicle is travelling. StabiliTrak selectively applies braking pressure at any one of the vehicle's brakes to help guide the vehicle in the direction which you are steering.

When you first start your vehicle and begin to drive away, the system performs several diagnostic checks to insure there are no problems. You may hear or feel the system working. This is normal and does not mean there is a problem with your vehicle. If driving conditions delay system initialization, the STABILITRAK NOT READY message may be displayed. If this is the case, your vehicle does not need servicing.

When the StabiliTrak system is both on and actively controlling the stability of the vehicle, the StabiliTrak light will blink for the duration of the event.

You may also feel or hear the system working. This is normal.
StabiliTrak will turn off automatically if a problem is detected in the system. The StabiliTrak light will come on and SERVICE STABILITRAK will be displayed on the DIC. For vehicles without a DIC, the StabiliTrak light and the StabiliTrak service light will both come on. If the SERVICE STABILITRAK message (or StabiliTrak service light) does not clear itself after restarting the vehicle, you should see your dealer for service.

Hope this helps.

Burned or broken wire somewhere in the harness. Honestly, if you know the SOCKET to be good, the very best approach to repairing that problem is simply to run a 12-gauge wire from the known-good lamp socket wire to the dead socket wire. (Headlights always operate in common anyway, so there is no downside.)

The water in the front differential is caused by driving through high water. There is a vent at the top that allows for the expansion of oil without building up air pressure. You are going to need to replace the front fluid and repack the bearings to prevent further damage. It is also recommended to install a vent tube to prevent it from happening again.

Call a windshield repair specialist. The window has separated from the gasket.

This light means that a fault has occurred in the electronics of the system, you must now have the system scanned by the dealer to see what fault codes are stored in the computers memory for the problem that turned on the warning light.

Have you had the systems control module scanned for fault codes, to guess is just a waste on these complex systems.

I would check the oil level. They may have cross threaded the oil filter,or left the drain plug loose or off. I have even heard of some shops forgetting to put oil in at all.

There is really no way to know what the noise is, you must have it inspected and well you have it in the shop have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, when the CEL is on the system will set a fault code for the problem that turned on the Check Eng. Light.

There is no cabin filter in these vehicles.
