2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer Problems

Rear Lights May Be Out Due To Failed Light Socket Plate

One or more of the rear lights may be out due to a failed light socket plate. Our technicians tell us some 2002-2004 models were recalled for this issue. For more information on this recall, please click here»

Car wont start

My car's shifter is in the "Park" position, but the indicator on the dashboard says the car is in "Reverse." Because the car is not in Park or Neutral it will not start. I have already tried re-setting the ignition switch, but no luck

Fuel Level Sensor Failure

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.
