I can drive all day but my trailblazer will fail to turnover at any time. If I wait for 15 to 30 min. It starts up like nothing was ever wrong. I took it to the dealership but they can't find the problem

    I would check your battery terminals to make sure they are clean of any battery acid and that they are tight in the battery terminals. If the screws that go into the battery are damaged in any way replace them. Also check the positive wire to the starter and make sure that it is tight and not damaged. You could be having a good connection when you first start it up and as you drive the wires on the starter and battery come loose so when you go to start the next time your not making as good a connection. Also I would suggest taking your starter to Auto Zone or some where and having it tested to see if it is getting to hot and not working properly.
