  • I just decided to add a mobile video system to my 2002 Trailblazer LS 2WD. Does anybody know where I could find a switched aux power to tap into under the rear seat?

    I removed the spare tire tools and used the two studs to bolt my DVD player brackets to, fits nicely under the rear seat, now I just need switched power.

    VIN 1GNDS13S822421574

    I just ordered and received the cover part number 12498321. I am very pleased, it is basically a 3 dimensional molded piece which plugs in to the hitch receiver. I perfectly fills the large gap around the hitch doing wonders to dress up what I consider an ugly area on the TB. I paid $32 and it was well worth it. My wife can't get over the difference it makes also.

    I bought a 2003 LT last fall and would not buy without a temp and compass mirror but would not pay for the whole package. At least five dealers told me there was "no way." One dealer said, "no problem" and accomplished it by ordering a 2001 mirror and put it in my LT. I think it cost me but can't remember how much. In any case, I was glad to pay. The secret is the 2001 TB had the compass and temp mirror as an option and it was not part of a larger package as in the 2003.
  • I have a 2002 Trailblazer that is throwing road debris from the front tires onto the flanged area in front of the rear tires. I have 13000 miles on it. It has never been off road. In conversations with Chevrolet they will not do anything to make it right. I asked for mudflaps and repaint of the area. Since then I have discovered two more Trailblazers with the same damage. Since the 2003 and 2002's are the same body design it will be a problem with both. Everyone should check their vehicle immediately and if you find damage file a complaint. I will be contacting the attorney general and the BBB. I, also plan to provide this information to dealers so that they will be under pressure to get this design problem taken care of.

    Get some $30 mud flaps OEM or Husky. Running boards help also and enchance the looks. All vehicles do this!!! I put my flaps on week ago. Its pot hole filling season in NY.

    SUESN,
    Would recommend getting them with the vehicle when you buy it. Last year they were not available for the LS. I notice now they are.

    Does anybody know where factory fog lights attach to the wiring harness in the LT models? Any chance the wiring is in place for the LS model? I really would prefer not wiring them to the headlights.

    Barnacle,

    I have an LTZ with the Sideview Mirrors and I have found that water builds in the turn signals. I have asked the dealer that I have my truck serviced at about this and the Sideview mirrors are notorious for building up water.

    Just an FYI
  • Hi
    Or to find altezza light for the TRAILBLAZER in the USA. And could you indicate a URL for this accessory to me.
    I live in EUROPE.
    Thank you in advance

    I just installed a DVD entertainment system for the kids in my (or shall I say my wife's) 2003 LS. Had a heck of a time trying to find the ideal location for the DVD player though. Finally opted for creating a small stand to mount the player in front of the back seat. So far so good. If I decide to move it in the future it shouldn't be too much of a hassle since the stand isn't a 'permanent' fixture.

    Dual 6" LCD displays installed in the headrests, wireless headphones also installed with the transmitter up top in the headliner. FM modulator also installed to pipe the music to the stereo, but I get a darned alternator whine. I have the modulator running on AAA batteries right now, so trying a ground loop won't work. I have read that FM modulators have the tendency to whine anyways. It probably wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to turn up the radio so much to hear the incoming signal, but there is no gain on the unit. I will try the DC power supply to see if that improves it any.

    But I digress... My daughter just loves the fact that she can now watch movies in the car and have a screen all to herself! I used to lug my laptop with me for longer trips so she could watch a movie but that was becoming a bit of a hassle. Well worth the price of the components, and only took a day to do the install!
  • I recently saw a Trailblazer with marker lights where the front bolt covers would be for the luggage rack. Anyone know where I might find some of these?

    The North Face edition of the Trailblazer is the one with these marker lights. There was some discussion on another TB message board about installing these on a non-NF edition truck but there has not been a straight answer of if the wiring is pre wired up there.... (you can buy the actual lights from GM parts direct, just don't know if there is anyhting to plug them into up there on a non north face edition.)

    I checked out GM parts direct and they hardly had anything for the Trailblazer in their catalog. I guess they once had more?

    I'm sure the wiring is already there. From what I have been told, there are hookups for pretty much everything. I've even got fuses installed for things I don't have.

    I've been dying to put Marker (NF clearance lights) on my TB since the first time I saw a NF TB driving at night, and I've been part of this discussion on other message boards.

    I've had the bolt covers off of the front of my roof rack rails dozens of times when taking my cross bars on/off. I've never seen anything that would lead me to believe this would be a plug-n-play type of modification. Please tell me I'm wrong, because I'd sure love to do this, and I'm squeemish (putting it mildly) about having to drill any sort of holes in the roof to get power to the lights.
  • ericevansericevans Posts: 33
    My guess would be that they are inside the roof and drilling would be required to feed them through. That's my guess.

    What is up in that hump in the middle of the ceiling over the arm rest up front? I have no sun roof and no overhead console, so why is it there?
  • ericevansericevans Posts: 33
    heh.....I had a dream last night that I took down part of the ceiling and found all types of connections.
  • ericevansericevans Posts: 33
    Last night I pulled the ceiling down and can now verify that the 2002 Trailblazer does NOT have pre-run wires for the marker lights. BUT, they would be very easy to run. Now if I could just find the lights.

    A while back some people posted about having battery trouble. If those people are still here, I'd like to know if you had anything like an FM modulator installed. I installed the Delphi SA-1003 FM mod and had trouble with it killing my battery if I hadn't driven for 24 hours. I ended up having to put a switch on it. This problem seemed a bit strange in that the Trialblazer has all of the circuits set up to shut off if the battery is threatened. I had tapped in behind one of my cig outlets. You'd expect at least THOSE would be monitored by the computer.

    One cool thing I found out when I was back in the dash was that everything seems to have a dedicated ground. Makes it much easier than trying to find a screw to use.
  • ericevansericevans Posts: 33
    I guess not many people read the posts here. Is there a more active board?

    I contacted GM and asked about the parts. They requested that I supply the VIN of a NF Trailblazer so that they can make sure to get a compatible part to fit mine. I explained that I live several states away from where the things are sold and such a request may prove difficult. I also mentioned that the only difference between a NF and a standard are the added options. Hopefully he realizes this and gives in. But if not, does anyone here have a NF edition and could reply back with their VIN?

    Thanks for your help!
