2006 chevy trailblazer_ss_lt
Mine was a pain in the rear as well. If you are just talking about the plastic cover, it's really just a question of separating the snaps. Just keep wiggling and pulling and it'll come off.The orig ignition switch finally went out on my 2002 TB and trying to replace it. Here is where I am running into some trouble.
I attempted to follow the instructions for removing the steering column cover to no prevail. I managed to loosen the initial snaps on both sides of the steering column but cannot seem break loose the remaining snaps. I have tried to move the cover left to right just does not want to give.
Any help is appreciated.
I am having the same issues with my 2007 LS. I noticed it was hard to start a few days ago, been real cold for Texas 20s-30s, and my wife had a problem starting it yesterday, but last night it started fine.
This AM, nothing.
I just went out and JUST tested voltage and the battery is showing 12.93ish. I think tried starting it in Neutral. I thn tried starting it by gently pushing up on the shifter.
I did noticed a humming/buzzing sound under the dash, kinda like an electrical motor cycling on and off.
Going out to disconnect the battery cable and see if that helps.
Disconnected battery again, cables and battery looked clean.
Pulled the caps and battery was full.
Now, when I put the key in and try to start it, the gauges do not react and the starter clicks.
When I take the key out, I hear the humming/buzzing still.
Nothing in neutral either.
Battery now shows 12.13v.
I had trouble with my battery last week,but mine was 7 years old.I was suspecting it to be another ignition switch that would be number 4 for me.I had noticed ,with the arrival of cold weather that the truck was barely starting but with the holidays the truck was sitting around more and when it was used it saw alot of short trips (shopping) .The next time click click nothing:bonk:Long story short new battery installed no more problem.The cold weather is not your batteries friend.In your case though I see you have 2007 so the battery is not that old unless it has been drained to dead to many times I would suspect something else.Let us know how you make out,Happy Newyear and best of luck. Big Jim 2003It was 12.9x static, don't have a hand to have someone check it while cranking.
It feels like a bad cell to me, just had the SAME thing happen last year with my Cadillac, but I am going to test it tonight.
Any other thoughts besides, battery or cables?
I have read EVERY post I can find on the subject, even though I thought it was the ignition switch. Replaced that, now these issues.
