Defect SummaryVehicle description: s -trucks equipped with 2 wheel drive. these vehicles may have had the right-hand antilock brake system (abs) module feed pipe and/or brake crossover pipe tube nuts tightened without seating the pipe-flared-ends enough to withstand normal assembly and vehicle inputs without partially unseating. this does not comply with requirements of fmvss no. 105, hydraulic service brake normal, emergency, and park braking performance.
Consequence SummaryIf this occurred, the seating seal could be broken during vehicle assembly, or from early road inputs or brake fluid cycling, and a leak could occur increasing the brake stopping distance.
Corrective SummaryDealers will inspect the brake pipe union for signs of brake fluid, and if necessary, install a new brake pipe union.

 My 2000 chevy blazer (88k mi.) had both the abs system light and emergency brake light come on. i have also experienced strange abs activation even at low speed and light brake application. my dealer said the abs controller is faulty. i have found numerous descriptions of these very same symtoms from other owners as well as tsb references to this defect. this looks like a trend and a design flaw and a saftey issue. this should be investigated and the abs controller system should be recalled.

 I notced several times when i would stop that the vehicle would juimp forward and not completely stop. i was going to the garage to see my mechanic. my family and i were almost hit broadside when i tried to stop at a red light. when i put on the brakes i slowed down but when i got under 10mph the vehicle started to jump. the vehicle finally spopped after i was through the intersection. the mechanic told me that the front wheel bearings were worn. he said that the sensors for the abs system were in the bearings. so when i tried to stop the abs system kicked in. that is why i couldn't stop ! this was a very frightening experience for me and my family. this should not happen! the mechanic replaced the front wheel bearings and the vehicle seems ok now. i am concerned that this will happen again. the vehicle is only 5 yrs old.

 The abs module went bad. symptoms were anti-lock brakes activating at low speeds and vehicle not stopping. you push the brakes and the pedal pushed back at you. this is a very common problem for these vehicles. i had to remove the abs fuse because it was safer to have not have abs than to apply brakes and not being able to stop. the part is also unavailable from aftermarket stores, dealer only item at $500 a piece. this is extremely dangerous and should be investigated. *tr

 My 2000 blazer ls 2dr 4x4 has ipc problems. the ipc lights have gone out and do not illuminate the gauges, this is a safety hazard when driving. the abs and parking brake indicator lights go on and off. the parking brake sticks and wont release. due to the number of complaints, recalls, and service bulletins issued on these safety problems i think more should be done to hold the manufacturer responsible for repairing these defects. the first 11 digits of my vin match at least 2 other vehicles first 11 digits and yet chevy doesn't feel they should fix the issue with all blazers. i am concerned with the safety of my vehicle. *tr

 2000 chevy blazer has abs light come on. when this occurs the brakes do not work. it does not matter if the speed is extremely low-or going 55mph-65mph depending on posted speed limit. if you barely touch them it slips/does not grab. if you try to pump the brake pedal it goes to the floor two or three times before catching. you can hear a noise before the abs light comes on-you can feel the brake pedal get tight and then real loose before light comes on. the light does not stay on, nor do you have a warning about it coming on. i just had new brake pads and rotors put on- the brakes should be better than new- however, does'nt matter if they are being told by a sensor or other computer chip/light that they don't work! i've been told it is the abs brake motor valve body assembly part, that is malfunctioning. please investigate before somebody gets hurt or dies. there is also another woman at my work who has the same vehicle and has the same problem on occassion, they have spent days trying to identify the problem. *tr

 The handle that allows you to recline the seat broke off flushed with the seat, this happened to both the driver and passenger seats in june 2005. the hood will not pop up when the lever was pulled until one banged on the grill or the hood in certain spots, which just started in march of 2007. the gas mileage dropped from 20 mpg to 16 mpg within 6 months. the back glass stuck and was hard to open, started in 2006. when turning on the air conditioner (a/c ) the car had no power, i have to turn it off when accelerating on the interstate or on hills. if the cruise control was set it kicked off when the a/c was on. when i needed to stop quickly the brakes failed, and felt a grinding sensation through the pedal, but the mechanic changed the brakes and checked the rotors, but hasn't found any problem. suspected a defect somewhere in the brake system as of 2005. the fan kicked on all the time, even when the engine was cold, and in winter when first starting. one mechanic told me that in many blazers the catalytic converter broke off in the muffler, which had to be replaced. had been told this happened so much that most people left them off. too many other problems to mentioned. also, the horn worked only when it wanted to, problem in the steering wheel. *ak

 2000 blazer anti-lock brakes do not stop the vehicle. two years ago this caused an accident when i hit the car in front of me at a stop sign. the vehicle had done this quite a few times before this, both in wet and dry weather. i had the vehicle looked at by two different dealerships and they could find nothing wrong. i currently keep the anti-lock brakes unplugged as they are not safe. you think you are stopping and then the car lunges forward as the brake acts up. the accident caused me to get a ticket and have higher insurance premiums. *jb

 The fuel pump,line and tank are faulty at 35000 miles. i bought it as a used car from santa ana hyundai who agreed to fix the fuel pump but did not. the transmission is not changing gears properly, it would not start when i turned it off to get gas on 9-26-03, the left front end is popping with a loud noise,the brakes are not antilock brakes,it feels as if i am hitting metal when i stop hard,the panel lights would flicker, lights on dash board when flash when i had seatbelt on. i had a chevrolet dealership fix the minor things. the battery cable was loose and they oiled the joints to stop the squeak. the dealer refused to fix the fuel pump which is unsafe and demand i pay him money that is already above the price of this car. i am paying $14,000 plus for a 2000 chevrolet blazer with a faulty fuel pump.the door entry will not properly take in the key to open the door.the gauge meters were dancing back and forth and not properly reading the fuel.it was a rental car before i bought it so i had no real history of recalls or mechanical reports. *la

 The handle that allows you to recline the seat broke off flushed with the seat, this happened to both the driver and passenger seats in june 2005. the hood will not pop up when the lever was pulled until one banged on the grill or the hood in certain spots, which just started in march of 2007. the gas mileage dropped from 20 mpg to 16 mpg within 6 months. the back glass stuck and was hard to open, started in 2006. when turning on the air conditioner (a/c ) the car had no power, i have to turn it off when accelerating on the interstate or on hills. if the cruise control was set it kicked off when the a/c was on. when i needed to stop quickly the brakes failed, and felt a grinding sensation through the pedal, but the mechanic changed the brakes and checked the rotors, but hasn't found any problem. suspected a defect somewhere in the brake system as of 2005. the fan kicked on all the time, even when the engine was cold, and in winter when first starting. one mechanic told me that in many blazers the catalytic converter broke off in the muffler, which had to be replaced. had been told this happened so much that most people left them off. too many other problems to mentioned. also, the horn worked only when it wanted to, problem in the steering wheel. *ak
