2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer Problems

Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation

The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.

On certain 2005 - 2007 vehicles, General Motors has provided a special service policy covering the fuel level sensor, agreeing to pay 50% of the repair cost. This coverage extends for 10 years or 120,000 miles from the original "in service" date of the vehicle. Please contact your local GM dealer for more information.

Check Engine Light and/or Excessive Fan Noise

The cooling fan clutch may fail causing excessive fan noise and/or the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

CD Player In Radio May Fail

The CD player in the radio may fail. Our technicians tell us that the radio will need to be removed and sent out to a radio repair shop to correct this condition.
