Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
May I ask what kind of a issue is happening? There really isn't anything to reset if there is a problem.
i've already tried the "10 minute plan" twice but I should tell you that the key does NOT have a chip in it. Am willing to give it a 3rd try (both tries were yesterday)... got that "suggestion" from an online search and from a guy at Advanced Auto Parts that had also had the same problem. Don't know if he had a chip in his key or not.
I presume the chip would matter. Does it or not? If not, there would be no need to try a third time. Since my first 2 times were yesterday should I start over today - keeping in mind my keys have no chips.
A friend suggested unplugging the computer to 30 minutes or so and plugging it back in. Do you think that could work? and if so, where is the computer located on a 2004 Trailblazer?
Just went to the website you suggested to check things out. Under the installation instructions they don't even list a chevy trailblazer - this concerns me. I have a disability and some positions would be hard for me to get into.
also, this website keeps asking for an email and password. when i put my password XXXXX it tells me it is wrong. i don't recall even seeing a place to register that information. can you tell me what to do about that as well. i'm not receiving any emails from this site but presume i should be since they ask for that info.
what is a BCM? and do I understand correctly that the fact that my keys do not have a chip will not affect the "10 minute plan" and that I should try that again? if so, once more or 3 more times?
where is the computer located so that i can also try to disconnect it and reconnect it as well?
thanks so much for trying to help me out.
thanks Cam - we will try that after while - may have to be tomorrow because we had to abandon the vehicle away from our home - may take until tomorrow to go back since it's getting dark now.
will let you know how it turns out.
is the BCM the same thing as the computer that my friend suggested i try to unplug /replug? if not - where is the computer located so i can give that a whirl also when i go back to the vehicle?
