I have a 1999 and it's hard to start it after a few days if i let it set, i started my truck n drove around to my sisters after cranking it a few times then it started, but when i went back to start it it wouldnt start, so now i have my battery at auto zone charging.

I have had the same issue. Do you have any issues with your interior lights? If you do, even with the fuse pulled, it will still drain the battery. There is a switch plugged in to the drivers door lock assembly that turns the lights on when you lift the handle. You can replace if or simply unplug it.

Same problem with my 97 blazer. Alt and starter are fine. Battery is good. New starter relay and ignition switch. I have dash lights and radio so I know the battery is fine. Seems to be a common prob with blazers...Although I've never had a single problem from thing in the 2 years I've owned it. Has anyone figured it out???

97 Blazer wont start, dash board lights don't come on, it turns over but will not fire. If dash board lights do come on, then it starts and runs fine.
Had the same problem with my 97 Bravada. It's the ignition switch. I was ready to replace it when I read on another forum to try spraying contact cleaner in the ignition switch. Just inserted the red straw into the key slot and sprayed a bunch in and then worked the switch 5 or 6 times with the key and the dash lights started coming on and it starts every time. The contact cleaner worked! The problem hasn't returned. I'm keeping a can in the glove box just in case.

my 1997 Chevy Blazer just shuts off when driving down the road or slowing down to stop Help!!!? I have a 1997 Chevy S10 Blazer. Runs fine but once it get warmed up real good it cuts out. You can see the tacometer drop when it cuts out almost like turning off the key. Goes dead for a second. We changed the fuel filter and that didn't help. Almost seems electrical. After it cools down for awhile and you start the car again it runs great until it heats up again. Seems to cut out mostly at very slow speeds like when trying to park or at high speeds like on the highway. One time when cutting out at the slow speed the service enging light came on. But after letting the car cool down when I started it up the light was off and it ran fine again. It doesn't overheat and reaches normal temperture and stays there. After it cuts out it only takes aboty 30 seconds then it will start again.. We can drive down the highway a couple more miles before it stops again..Dangerous!! When we first run it and it is cool it seems to run for a while.But once it gets hot the problems start.
I have a 97 S-10 with a 4.3 and it is have similar symptom. It starts, idles, and runs great. After five or 10 minuet of driving it shuts off. The only difference it sputters a mile or so before it shuts off. Restarts minuets later and continues to do the same. The next day it starts, idles, and runs good. Then reputes above.
