In this video I have a look at a Chevrolet Trailblazer that was dropped off as a no crank. Ignition switches are a pretty common item on these. Let's have a look. -Enjoy!

    I just had a shop swap out a 4.2 in a 06' Trailblazer that acquired a rod knock with a tested good 06 4.2 donor motor. I vehicle ran before the swap. Now the car is no start/ no crank/ no fuel pump after they swamp. The shop has given up on trying to figure it out. I know it could be many things but any suggestions to check for? Thanks, great vids

    Nice vid, I have one with 155k and no electrical problems and if it does not start someday I will give the chop a try.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Walsh says:

    Hah! I was "tricked" I got mine to start, once, by tapping the started relay, so I replaced that and thought I fixed it….damn it, it was just "lucky" timing. off to get an ignition switch! I expect this just saved me an expensive mechanic trip, we'll see

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jorge Rivera says:

    Thank you so much … u saved us time and money….

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kali Krause says:

    I’ve had these same problems with my 06 trailblazer and when I did the judo chop to start it, of course it worked. Laughed my ass off 😂😂😂😂

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Chapman says:

    I had a 2004 and had the same problem. The dealer couldn't find the solution so I traded it in for a Tahoe. Best car/truck I ever had.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kasual Skeptik says:

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Mount says:

    "Duty Cycle" … heh hehehe. – He said doody

    Half hanging off, God Almighty I am bleeding ! I want a stick of Dynamite right now

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CorpsePenis says:

    I have an 05 Trailblazer with the 5.3 v8 with the good ol' no crank, no start, not even a chime sound… Dash lights come up, looks like this, but of course the ignition switch doesn't seem to be the culprit. Trying to figure out what's going on. It started most of the time a few weeks ago and now it won't start at all. Battery is new, starter is new, sometimes get a weird sound from under the dash.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony cazzola says:

    Yooo i had this done before you video ended thanks

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars motorman1700 says:

    I find jiggling the ignition key works too. I'll have to try the karate chop next time my ignition key acts up. LOL.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Canizalez says:

    BroMy car was just stranded in the middle of Rogers Arkansas I saw your video after attempting to fix the problem for 2 1/2 hours I karate chop my ignition and it turned on! You are the master.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Knorr says:

    Because a vibration through the steering wheel works, you have a loose connection in the wheel.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Knorr says:

    No start in park, try neutral.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kootybear says:

    On the gm 6 litre, in the fed ex/ups trucks, we use volts, its suppose to around under .2 volts or above 1 volt if its in the middle at all, sensor is bad

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J clark says:

    fyi when my last ignition switch was failing (04 express) only high speed on the front heater fan and abs and brake light on- no other problems.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J clark says:

    not that its a long term fix but pretty easy to pop the cover off that ignition switch and clean the contacts in there with a little fine sandpaper.

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terry Doberstein says:

    Thanks fixed my problem today. Checked and battery was fully charged. Then when I went to start, acted like battery was dead.
