Replace the alternator. It sounds like a defective regulator, and it is located inside of the alternator. The volts should never go any higher than 16.

It might be in the diagram of parts and places, if comes with it.

That would tend to indicate that the alternator was not charging the battery for that interval.

i personally do not know but obvious thing to check are how many lugs the Chevy blazer has an how many the sonoma are measure distance from one lug to another on the sonoma an do same on the blazer to if it comes out the same then it may work but if ur sonoma is a 5 lug do not try it with say a 6 lug or 8 lug rims off the blazer an if this is a full size blazer it probaly wont work but smaller compact SUV blazer it probaly will work as long as they are either both 2wd or both 4wd...they will fit.....I believe all blazers and zr2's have 5 lug

There is a small screw...torx or Allen head that holds it to the mount. Loosen this and slide the mirror up. Comes right off.

It is telling you that one of the gauges is not within normal range. It could be you are not charging or overheating or have little or no oil pressure.
