Glad to see you got it on the road again.
This one is also a 1998, but it is an LT. So leather seats (worn), auto climate control (must argue with HAL about what temperature I want) and keyless entry (I'll eventually get that working)
Front hub caps aren't missing - I'm just too lazy to put them back on because I have the wheels off so often lol
A/C didn't work when I got it - one clutch cycle switch later and it blows cold.
One thing I'd like to share with the community -
This Blazer had a similar problem to my old Blazer: the idle would go to heck when it would get hot.
After a lot of head scratching, it turned out to be the crank position sensor getting hot and then sending inaccurate information. New ACDelco crank position sensor and it runs like it's new.
Moral of the story - replace old sensors.
Problems I still have to rectify -
- Wiper delay is... dodgy
- HVAC mode door actuator is roached (replacement part is discontinued, need to make something)
- Some switches are dodgy
- Steering feels fatigued
- Needs 'Bravada Shaft Upgrade'
- Instrument panel dimmer does strange things (when you turn it to 'dome on' it rapidly flashes the dome light every time you touch it)
- Front door lock actuators need to be replaced
Driving a Blazer again after not having one was like manna from heaven. It's relaxing to drive - unlike the Beretta which while reliable and durable, feels like you're constantly in a NASCAR race.
