1997 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

I have a 1997 cherolety Blazer and have the exact same problem that the model year 2000-2001 recall covers. My bottom brake lights are inoperative as well as my hazard lights. The upper center brake light works fine. If I push my hazard switch to the side, my bottom brake lights work and the top one doesn't. I have already called GM and have no satisfaction after explaining the situation. This brake light/hazard signal is also a problem on the 1998 models. I have researched this on the internet and found many owners of earlier models trying to figure out why their brake and hazard lights do not work. Is there a way to get GM to include earlier model year SUVS into this recall?

Brake lights and fourway flashers went out in my 1997 in the newspaper in the auto recall section I found out that Chevrolet is recalling 2000 and 2001 Blazer for the same problom.I have two 1998 Chevy trucks at work, I replaced the 4way, turnsygnal switches three times in each truck.I believe when somthing effects your brake lights without the driver aware of the problom is a very dangerous situation.
