2005 chevy trailblazer won't start

Asked by Leggomylindsay Feb 28, 2019 at 12:10 AM about the 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer LT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 chevy trailblazer. I put a brand new
battery in it about 2 months ago. Yesterday I turned
it on, it started a little hard but started on the first
try. The battery gauge read at 9, and jumped up to
14 after about 10 seconds (14 is where it usually
reads) today it wouldn't start. It kinda started to
turn over the first time but wouldn't start. I tried
again and it was even less.. tried a third time and
nothing but time still showed up on the radio. Any
idea what could be wrong?

Go-to the auto parts store and have them check your alternator battery and starter.Then ask them to do the test again with your ac/heater on (either one) with your blower motor on high.


1st things first, triple check that your battery connections are tight, prior to doing anything. If you've verified the connection. Then go into checking your alternator. You may have a parasitic drain test done if it tests good.
