Engine check light problem is an ongoing issue with both current and former owner. 3 different mechanics put ther scanners on the vehicle and keep bringing up the oxygen sensor as the problem. Had one bad sensor at the wiring harness plug which was poorly assembled at the factor causing water to get to the contacts and contaminated the connector. Replaced all 4 O2 sensors and still cannot get the check engine light to go away. Vehicle performs perfect along with 24 mpg gas one highway driving. This is an issues other Blazer owners are experiencing. GM should be held accountable to fix this issue.
