1997 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #4

May 102003

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,000 miles


Wiring bundle holder above transmission one of which goes to the transmission switch fails and lets wiring bundle fall on transmission and rubs the coating off of the wiring causing electical shorts; daylight headlights, transmission failure ( nothing wrong with transmission)interior lighting goes out or stays on all the time causing battery to go dead overnight, burning of wiring especially under dash and at fuse box and transmission switch (no fire resulted, unhooked battery removed fuses, and had wire replaced to transmission switch then trasmission worked; no failure of swicth just wiring, wiper and night light failures and more. Transmission auto repair says it is number 1 failure and happens all the time. The dealer said I needed a new transmission. This is a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer. I still have electral problems I have to get fixed. Some recalls were made on this auto that may be due to this shortage caused by wiring bundle falling above the transmission.

The date I listed for failure was the last failure date, yesterday. Teh first date was about a month ago. I have contacted bob fischer Chevrolet. I got the vehicle from titusville chev, but they are out of business and bob fischer took over their business. I also contacted Chevrolet, the manufacturer. I also contacted my lease company. They refused to do anything to help. This is the only vehicle I have. I do not have money to rent a vehicle. Chevrolet told me to take my Blazer in to bob fischer and leave it until the headlights fail to come on in their service dept so they can trace it. Since this only occurs when it is cold and it doesn't get cold in Florida very much yet, my truck could be there for weeks and I will not be able to get to work. I asked for a loaner vehicle. They said they cannot provide one. They also said that after they do discover the problem, they still may not fix it for free, but may repair it at a reduced price. This is very frustrating for me and very dangerous. Can you help me, please?

The lighting of the headlights is poor, affects visibility, and may cause an accident. Dealer claims that the headlight meets FMVSS. No remedy for the problem.
