2000 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #11

Dec 282017


  • 167,000 miles


The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer. The contact stated that the vehicle made an abnormal clicking sound even when the turn signal switch was not activated. Upon inspection, the turn signal indicators did not illuminate. The vehicle was taken to the independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the flashers were defective and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign number: 01V364000 (exterior lighting). The dealer was not contacted. Although the manufacturer acknowledged the recall, they stated that the VIN was not included. The failure mileage was approximately 167,000.

I purchased my 2000 Blazer in 6/20/02 from a Chevy dealer in pa. I purchased the extended warranty. I have until 6/07 OR100000 miles I have replaced the coil and distributor cap and rotor 5 times a new fuel pump a catalytic converter windshield washer motor and turn signal switch it has gotten to the point that I can't even sell it to anyone private and I can't afford to keep it. There has been electrical and computer issues shorts that melted the fuse box under the hood that melted the relay for the fuel pump. Also there was a short that wiped the computer codes out and I had a rough time passing emission testing I am at the point the extended warranty does not want to spend any more on the vehicle. I have had the motor mounts replaced twice in 4 years. I have never been notified of any recalls orservice notices. I have had the vehicle serviced by licensed mechanics and had it serviced at the appropriate mileage required for the warranty.

My vehicle was recently purchased from a coworker with a known recall that was already fixed once and now is not functioning again. I called Chevrolet and they told me there is not much they could do since it was beyond the warranty, I had it diagnosed at a dealership which cost me $85 to tell me what I already knew but they would not fix it. This is failure that is known and I believe was not corrected the first time so I should not be responsible for the repair costs since it is a safety issue. The item is a 4 way switch.

The turn signal in the vehicle began clicking even when the switch was in the neutral (off) position several months ago, however, the turn signals appeared to work properly. A couple weeks ago, while sitting at a left turn light with the turn signal on, a white stream of smoke began coming out of the steering column in the vicinity of the turn signal level. I turned off the level, and the smoke stopped. No corrective action has been taken yet, but I am afraid a fire may start in the vehicle from this. It appears there is a service bulletin (# 01073) related to NHTSA item # 636517 that may be related or the same, but the dealer says no recall is open and will only charge to replace the part(s). This seems like a safety/fire related issue and I have read numerous cases online where other owners experience the constant clicking noise from the turn signal too.

Multifunction switch has failed twice on a 2000 model Chevy Blazer. The first time was at 33939 mileage in March 01. Was replaced under warrenty. This same multifuciton switch failed again in Dec. 01 at 48659 mileage. Had to file claim with extended warrenty, dealer told me the part was only good for 12months/12K milesage. I do not believe this switch should be malfunctioning at this interval and that I have to pay for the replacement. The brake lights no long work and there is no warning of this safty problem, someone had to stop me in traffic to tell me I had no brake lights. The dealer also informed me that many other Chevy Blazer have been in with the same switch failure but no bullentins have been issued by GM. I do not want to have this happen again in another 15K miles or less. This is a real safty issue because you have no brake lights and have no way of knowing this.
