Chevrolet TrailBlazer Electrical Problems
Truck was running fine,..I use my truck for work. So I take things out of the back of my Tailgate all day long. Well it started when I opened my tail,..and I looked at the dash and I had lights on and the radio went off? Well when I slammed the tail..the lights went off on the dash and the radio came back on.
So then a day came when it started raing...thats when the all the idiot lights came on in the dash.. The car continued to run and the speedomter worked, but the power windows did not, neither did the gas gauge,oil,battery,air conditoner,power locks and back wiper. or radio. Next day the rain stopped and everything worked fine. Now its only when it rains..I lose power to everything I just mentioned but the headlights and tailights still work.
I had someone put it on a computer to get the codes, the codes go to the tailgate control module. Not the one behind the driver seat..but was told its the one in the tailgate itself.
I then had someone who had access to a Tec 2 ( GM Tool) see if it would come up with anything. They said they found the errors...but the Tool could not communicate with the Tailgate Module??My question here is has anyone had this kind of problem,..and do you think it sounds like the tailgate module is the problem....or is there somewhere else I should check before I spend the money on a brand new tailgate module??The thing that is fishy is that i was told that the body control module ( behind the drivers seat) controls some of those idiot lights,..and the tailgate module controls the others? I had the Tec 2 communicate with the body control module and it couldnt communicate with the rear tailgate...which is why I am so pluzzled? One GM Mechanic told me to put in a new ignition switch as thay have that problem all the time at the dealership..so I did...still have the problem? Anyone??
thanks in advance
