WinchesterLock: Yeah, I too have an 05' Trailblazer. My cluster has been going to heck for
months (only issues regarding the fuel gauge are covered by recall btw).
Just this weekend, I had the oil pressure, amperage and speedometer all
fail on me. Oil and amperage were normal when checked/hooked up to an
outside meter. The speedometer decided to move off of zero after driving
an hour and a half with no speedometer. This comes following having
repairs done for a bad coil, a recall replacement for a fuel gauge issue, a
dead battery, and rough idling and choking down at stoplight when I have
the air conditioner or fan on (the dealership claimed it was a dirty
throttle body, and having them clean it did nothing to fix it). As a
result, I have no interest in buying another Chevy.
Mitchell WildFlame: Oh I've done 90 mph with our 04 in park! ._. no, it was slipping on ice
and the gear shift was in drive, but it displayed on the dash as park for
Steven Baessler: I have an 03 trailblazer lt 5.3 vortec, my gauge cluster got stuck
also, what I did was act like I was going to start my truck with the
shifter in drive. some how if you do this enough ( on mine at least ) the
speedometer will slowly bring itself back to just under zero. the reason
for leaving the truck in drive is so the truck don't keep starting. so,
leave it in drive, try to start it and hold the key a second, all gauges
should fall to the standard off position, when you release the key, gauges
will go back into whatever they are supposed to read and on top of that
your speedo should start to slowly move back to normal " 0 " mph position.
this may take several attempts but like I said, its what works on mine.
Alfonso Barrera: my truck also runs out of oil really fast...they told me that the fuel
regulator might be broke...i dont understand since these are two different
josh pellett: replaced both motors for the needles both fixed for under 50. bucks did it
jeff hamilton: You really need to have the front suspension and wheel bearings checked.
Wheel bearings usually go bad about every 50,000 as well as ball joints and
a-arm bushings. This may be the worst vehicles GM has produced sense the
old 5.7 diesels.
Dean Kiley: Gauge cluster is easily repairable for about 35 bux by replacing the
stepper motors (6 in all). Instructions are found on youtube, parts
available on ebay. This is an EASY fix and if you can hold a pencil, you
can solder. I will be replacing the original cluster lamps with blue led's
as well as soon as it gets a bit warmer. Good Luck!
Cathi Singledecker: My trailblazer just started to act up yes the gas cap has problems but now
my speedometer is stuck and my blower fan just went out two days ago it
would not turn off... nite I have no heat and it's 19 degrees. ...uhhhh
Kimi Banderas: Yes i do have the same year and same problem stuck at 120 and goes down to
90 in park grrrrr
robin mericle: I have a 2004 Chevy Trail Blazer. The fan belt clutch was replaced at the
dealer Blasius Chevrolet in 2008. I then moved to FLA. where I had to have
the FAN BELT clutch Replaced again in 2011, again REPLACED in 2012. Now its
going on a 4th time.
Aman P: i got chevy trailblazer 05 i am facing exact same problem i went to chevy
dealer they dont cover any of that. & now just today i put in drive it
dont run. seems like its not shifting at all. if you kno what could be that
please let me kno.
Michael Shahabi: I own a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer LS 4.2 I6, It has given me problems galore!
I have replaced the fuel injector, thermostat, and my gauge is having the
same problem since 2009. The only gauge that works is the RPM, my gas light
goes off thats howI know I need gas, I will never buy GM again! I currently
have a misfiring cylinder #4, and other engine lag. Just ordered a new fuel
flydivafly: I also have the check engine light, (that doesn't bother me) speedometer,
and fan for the heater problems..Do you know of any recalls? I have had a
new fan put in twice and neither time does it get any better..The
speedometer as u say is about $300 to get fixed.
Alfonso Barrera: i have a 05 trailblazer and it is acting crazy also...i ran out out gas the
other day because my fuel gauge went out...and now my truck feels like it
wants to turn off...i think my speed sensor its out now...
josh pellett: yes i got the same problem or did but mostly with the tac
arrow251: Needs to be resynchronized by authorized service center. Check engine light
needs to have fault code checked. My thermostat went bad and caused the
check engine light to come on, the thermostat was stuck open and did not
allow the engine to reach correct temperature in allotted time. Fuel gauge
started giving bad reading that was caused by faulty fuel level sensor in
gas tank, GM paid for most of that one though issue.
stokesjustin718: I have an 05 trailblazer as well, and all my gauges act up and the cluster
has already been replaced, also my fan blower only works on 5 and my wiper
speed only works on the highest setting, this all happened at once. My
check engine light goes on and off at random because of my gas cap as well
Teresa Rodriguez: I've had my 05 Trailblazer for 71/2 years and absolutely love it. It has
been a very good vehicle for me. I have put over 165,000 miles on it, and
it still runs very good. Sure, I have had to put a little work into it, but
I would have expected that on any vehicle. Recently, the AC stopped blowing
cold air only on the drivers side. I took it to the dealer and my advisor
told me what it was (in the dash), but I don't remember the name that he
said. Does anyone know what the name would be?
Gilbert Martinez: Oh and ours is a 2005 Trailblazer also. I just found out that there was a
recall on the fuel gauge.
Gilbert Martinez: My fuel gauge has gotten stuck on 1/4 tank. When I fill it up it goes to
full, but as I'm driving it never goes below 1/4 tank, and I almost ran out
of gas because I didn't know it was empty. When I put gas in it, I was able
to put over 22 full gallons of gas in it, and it's a 22 gallon capacity
tank, so I know it was out of fuel. Also our check engine light came on and
it was a fan motor. Now the vehicle sputters when I drive it, almost like
it wants to cut out on me.
Erik Carlson: (Virtual fist bump)
Erik Carlson: Hi Vanessa. Thanks so much for sharing your story. We're in the same
boat...we don't trust our fuel gauge so we fill up often and watch our
mileage. I'd hate for my wife and children to be stranded alongside the
road with an empty tank due to a faulty fuel gauge. :(
slb5150: LOL....I own one of these lemons, too....gas tank level sensor, bad cluster
gauge, water pump, wipers that won't turn off....I feel for ya, buddy. I
stick my wife with this thing....I'll keep driving my Neon.
XMANDEEJAY: I had the same problem.Had to replace the whole dashboard .
Erik Carlson: That stinks. Hopefully it's something minor. Thanks for the comment!
shonuffgrl: Same problem with my speedometer.
68simplejay: My wife owns a 05 blazer and the same thing happend to it the speed will
stick and I also just replaced the water pump waiting for the next disaster
to happen with this truck
ramonaahakeem86: I have had my 03 Trailblazer for 1 year. I've had many problems with it.
Now my transmission is going bad. Wanna cry but as soon as I'm done
something else will be wrong with it.
Erik Carlson: Bummer. Sorry to hear that Scott. Hope you don't have any other issues with
your Trailblazer. Thanks for posting!
Vanessa W: I have a chevy trailblazer - 2005 and my fuel gauge is shot. I will get it
fixed one day, but for now I fill up based on my mileage. :) Not the
smartest thing, but its better than forking out 400$ for it... Guess I
should prepare for future repairs as well.
Erik Carlson: I totally feel for you Ramona. Hopefully you won't have any more issues
with your vehicle. Good luck!
Erik Carlson: Thanks for your sharing your story @jrled79. I hope you don't have any more
problems with your Trailblazer. We used our GPS for a while too. After we
got the cluster fixed, our speedometer is about 4 - 5 mph slower. I
wondered why everyone is passing us. heh.
jrled79: I have an 2005 Trailblazer. My speedometer went out at about 100,000 miles.
I had the vehicle speed senor on the transmission changed and nothing
happened. Will have to change the cluster. For now I use my Motorola GPS's
speed indicator to track my speed. It's like 2 to 3mph off. Now I am having
trouble with my fan clutch. It's slow turning cause my A/C to cycle
irregularly. If it ain't one thing, it's another.
James Gillespie: i feel for you, havent had those problems yet. but at 100,400 miles the
transmission went out, dont replace it with same tranny. i put an escalade
tranny in mine. not long after that the rear end and water pump went out.
my advice, if you havent replaced tranny yet dump this vehicle as soon as
jumpin386: I bought a used 05 trailblazer that the speedometer did not work. I bought
the servos for the dash cluster on ebay for around 40.00. They work well
for the speed , the gas gauge sometimes reads low when it is full but
everything else works fine.
Josh Corpuz: Dcv
Kendra Sanders: I have a 2005 EXT LS and am being nickle and dimed like you said. I've
replaced the entire exhaust all rotors, 2 of the ignition pins and still
have my check engine light, this has all been changed in the last 3 months.
Erik Carlson: Hi Rocco - I'm no trailblazer expert but if you read through the comments
below, your check engine light could mean a number of things...from serious
to not-so-serious issues. It's probably worth having it checked out. Good
luck to you!
Erik Carlson: Ah...that stinks. We got our speedometer fixed but it actually runs about
4-5 mph slower than the speedometer. Go figure. Hope you don't have any
other issues with your Trailblazer. Bless you!
Erik Carlson: Je n'ai aucune idée de ce que vous venez de dire parce que je ne parle pas
espagnol, donc j'ai pensé que je voudrais vous répondre en français.
Erik Carlson: Hi Marta. I'd do what everyone else does...watch your mileage and fill up
often. It would stink to be stranded alongside of the road with an empty
Erik Carlson: Thanks for stopping by and posting your tip. Glad to hear your Trailblazer
is working out for you.
Erik Carlson: Thanks for your comment. I don't know if we could ever afford a BMW nor
would we want one so that's not an option at this point. I personally drive
a Toyota Corolla which is nearing 200,000 miles and I have not had one
issue with it - other than drilling a deer on the highway right after I
bought it new. I just wished that our Chevy had that same kind of track
record. Live and learn and to each their own. Peace!
Erik Carlson: I just hung up the phone with my local Chevy dealer and he told me that my
check engine light is on because the thermostat is shot ($307), the power
steering and differential are leaking ($2100), the instrument panel needs
to be fixed to repair the speedometer ($480), the rear brakes are shot
($380), and the battery and tires need to be replaced ($700). Repairs add
up to approximately $4000. All for a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer with just over
100K miles. Sigh.
wanderson oliveira: sim es malo esta lle informando que tiene un problema en el auto tiene que
ir ao mecanico
isismoon38: That sucks I have the same problem with my trailblazer. My gas gage and oil
gage are shot as well. I have 154000 miles and I'm holding on to it intil
Erik Carlson: True, but I'm guessing most Trailblazer owners wouldn't be all that excited
to dismantle & reassemble their dashboards themselves. ;)
Rocco Sollecito: buenos días, tengo una trailblazer 2005 y el bombillo amarillo que esta
arriba del velocímetro esta prendido permanentemente. que es eso ? es malo
? saludos, buen video
Erik Carlson: No worries. I was just being goofy as I don't speak Spanish and don't
remember much of my French. But if it makes you feel any better, I do work
with Oracle every day at my job. :)
jared varela: To maintain then a foreign piece of crap depending on the type of brand
