Blazer 6-cyl

  • 137,000 miles


The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer. While driving approximately 25 mph on normal road conditions, the contact was informed by the local authority that the driver's side rear brake light was inoperative. There were no warnings prior to the failure. The brake light bulb was changed, but the failure was still present. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for inspection and it was discovered that the brake light socket exhibited corrosion, which possibly contributed to the failure. The VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign id number 01V364000 (exterior lighting:brake lights:switch), although the failures were identical. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 137,000 and current mileage was 140,000. Updated 01/12/10. Updated 01/13/10.

On our 2000 Chevy Blazer 4WD our brake light do not work and neither does the hazard lights. I have replace the bulbs but still this does not fix the problem. I recently found this website and found out there was a recall on the brake switch. We never received a letter telling us to replace this part. I was wondering can I still get this replaced, if so can you email me a letter so I can get this problem fixed at no cost, since other people were allowed to get it fixed.

Campaign# 01V364000. The dealer is telling me the recall was already done on my vehicle in 2003 but I have the same problem now again in 2007. They say I have no recourse. Aren't they responsible to fix this since it's a known problem? koon Chevrolet 410-931-8600

We have owned 2000 Blazer since 0/6/2001 2nd owner bought with less than 19000 miles on it. Multi-function switch replaced because of recall acts up when bulbs are weak. We are on the third set of upper ball joints none paid for by warranty. Left hub assembly failure which resulted in ABS malfunction fixed by extended warranty. Driver door hinge assembly rusted would not close without force fixed but not covered by any warranty. Suspect driver side is starting to fail again because of the loud squeaking. Most important! passenger side door has developed same problem and will not shut correctly. On May 01,2006 after picking up my 12 year old nephew we were to starting to down the street when passenger door flew open!!!! I am afraid to let anyone sit in front until this is fixed! the hinges and pins appear to be getting wet and rusting. Also all rotors have had to be replaced on this vehicle. This Blazer has only 88,000 miles on it. I have decided to include all problems but am most concerned about doors, if we had been going faster I am afraid my nephew would have fallen out of vehicle!!!

Radley Chevrolet did not provide us with a recall notice on brake lights not working. We have had problems with our 2000 Chevrolet Blazer from the start. We have been now told that the idler arm on the car is a safety hazard. We also had the fuel gauge go out. How often do these components go out. Can you tell me anything about the idler arm and is there any recalls for this item.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,000 miles
I was notified by another driver I had no brake lights, brought back to dealer and informed that it would cost $400 to fix. Found out through my employer there had been a recall for this problem. Why was it not corrected before I purchased it from the Chevy dealer. Also informed my airbag warning light was on and the a module was at fault and would cost another $550 to fix and that it may inflate airbag while driving. These are totally unrealistic problems to occur in a 2 year old model with less then 40,000 mi.
