    Ok... if its not one thing, its another... this blazer is really beginning to piss me off... (I am considering selling it) I go out to the blazer Thursday morning, jump in, hit the key and ... Nothing! she just clicks a couple of times and thats it.

    So, I get a charger, hook it up, charge the battery... start testing circuits... they all test fine... draw is still there. So, I go out today, charge the battery, start the truck run it for about 15 minutes, shut it off, then immediately try and start it ... Nothing! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    this thing is killing me.

    yep, did the tests...

    had to take it to an autoelectric place... $33.00 to find the damn draw... not too bad.

    Oh well, its fixed now.
