local scrapyards should have those in stock.Loofa, what were the symptoms when you replaced the fuse box? And did you have any trouble matching fuse boxes? Mine has been in the shop 3 weeks now and they are telling me they are having a hard time finding a fuse box to match it. Thanks.
The symptoms were that the car died on the highway 100 miles from home. I had it towed it to a dealer and of course it was OK. They suspected it was wiring near the fuse box.
I drove home and it died along the way again. I wiggled the fuse box and it started.
Drove it for a few weeks periodically wiggling the fuse box.
Took it to a more local dealer with my story and they said the fixed it. ~$ 500.00
I drove away and it died 20 min later. Wiggling did not work so I towed it back to dealer.
It started. F**k
They this time removed the fuse box and found lots of corrosion underneath. They special ordered it and replaced it. No problem since. This was about 2 years ago.
If you are at an independent shop, I would call a dealer and give them your VIN. Dealer should get a proper GM number for your car. I would have done it myself but I could not for the life of me figure out how to remove it without breaking it.
I bought the 08 Envoy for $1000 a couple months ago at 176xxx miles. Since then I have put at least $500 worth of parts in it myself, thanks almost entirely to this site I may add (Thank you all!). This is on top of the $2000+ worth of service history records I obtained from the past 3 years, making me think it shouldn't have too many problems when I bought it (a few, sure). Man was I wrong. I have been amazed at how every time I go to fix one thing, I find several more that need fixed, haha. I have replaced: front passenger hub (fixed service stabilitrac/abnormal abs activation problem caused by bad wheel speed sensor, and I noticed a little catch in the wheel bearing after taking it off), Evap solenoid/canister (fixed check engine light, lol), cam position sensor (fixed different check engine light...), blower control module (fixed fan not blowing half the time), battery (new battery has went dead a couple times so there must be a drain somewhere at times...haven't found that yet), and tires (pretty routine!). I am now in the process of replacing driver side upper ball joint and tie-rod end, as well as passenger sway bar link (cannot for the life of me find one that matches the one that came off), cv shaft, and wouldn't you know it!?!?......the front axle disconnect (seal/bearing that holds cv shaft completely gone ). Luckily I bought the whole unit, because (as my luck goes) the old one broke off inside its hole in the oil pan!!! This was a PITA to extract, and after a few nights of drilling, die grinding, and hammering, I am quite proud to announce that as of tonight the POS thing is successfully extracted! Now to cleaning it up, putting the new one on, and putting everything back together (so I can go on to fix the ball joint and tie rod end....and likely the next problem(s) I find with this pile:crazy:. Overall it's a pretty nice vehicle though! Haha. Okay, so I'm a Ford guy, but this thing has done nothing but remind me why I'm a Ford guy. It also says service airbag on the dash, but I don't even know where to start with that...and the TPMS sensors are gone (has TB wheels lol). At least it has heated seats...for now.
hi and welcome.My lovely 😊 pewter metallic trailblazer LT has about 227k miles . Let me tell you this beauty is a beast. I’ve had the transmission replaced at 190k but the engine is still running strong. My parents think I’m obsessed with it and say that I need a new car. I’m like forget it, I put so much work on my baby I don’t think we’ll ever get rid of it . I’ve done some minor tweaks in mostly all aesthetic. New Hids , updated bumpers. Led lights on the inside. Small things that we trailbleezy peeps would notice. I’m currently wanting to get a Flowmaster/magnaflow installed, might actually do it tomorrow depending on the weather since it’s cold as hell down here now. But but to answer your question, 227k and running strong!
