You could have a damaged battery cable. They can get corroded and act like a dirty terminal. Make sure your connections are really tight also. Try to "wiggle" your battery cables. Have the battery checked also.

The best and fastest way to reset the instrument panel of 2004 Trailblazer is to disconnect both battery terminals. Reconnect them after about 30 minutes and everything should be reset.

Remove the positive terminal on the battery for 20-30 minutes and then replace the terminal on the battery and tighten the bolt very well. Also, for battery acid build-up on the terminals, pour several cups of boiling water over the battery terminals.

It is going to be one of a few things. First thing to check is the battery terminals. Look for loose or corroded terminals at the battery. If after cleaning them with a wire battery terminal cleaner brush, and tightening them it still will not start, have the battery checked to see if it is good. If the battery is good, then have the starter checked.

Take the terminals off the battery and leave them off for 30 minutes, then put them back on.

Try unhooking both battery terminals +- for a few minutes, that should reset the system.

User Avatar

i think what it is, you need to charge your battery but let it charge for about five minutes and if that doesn't work then you need a different battery

Disconned the battery for 30 to 60 minutes. This will reset everything to factory setting.

When jumping a vehicle with a bad or totally dead battery, it is best to connect the two vehicles and let them sit for about 10 or 15 minutes with the "good" vehicle running before attempting to start the "bad" vehicle. This allows the dead battery a chance to build a charge so that the jump doesn't try to pull so much current from the good battery (which is already providing current to keep its own car running). Be patient and WAIT AT LEAST 15 MINUTES! Don't try starting the car every couple of minutes or you will drain the battery again and the 15 minutes starts all over. You also might want to replace to battery terminals on the battery cables. Most likely the stock terminals are made of lead and are subject to corrosion. You can get a great set of brass terminals from an auto parts store for about $5. They are really easy to replace -- snip the old ones off with about a half inch of cable (which has corroded with the terminal), strip an inch of insulation to expose the new cable, and bolt the new terminals on nice and tight.

That completely depends on how much current is used by the circuit or device that's connected to the battery. For example, if there is no circuit or device connected to the battery, and no current is used, then the battery lasts for quite a long time. But if you lay a screwdriver across the battery terminals and create great balls of fire, then the charge on the battery may only last for 1/2 second.

disconnect both terminals from the battery for 5 minutes meanwhile touch the positive and negative terminals together a couple of times before reconnecting. this will reset all computer modules back to default. J

See if unhooking the battery terminals for a few minutes doesn't reset the system and allow access to the radio.

User Avatar

You can take it to Autozone and have them read the code, tell you and then reset it. You can also take off your battery terminals for a couple minutes then re-attach them.

I was told you have to drive the car for 30 minutes or 30 miles and it will figure everything out.

It is obviously a battery problem. First of all, check for signs of corrosion around the battery terminals. If there is a white chalky powder built up around the terminals, there is excessive corrosion. Remove both battery cables and clean the clamps and the battery posts. Replace the cables. and try to start. It may require a jump since the battery may be dead. Let it run for 15 minutes and try again. Secondly, the battery may be dead. Charge for a few hours with a charger and try to start. If this doesnt work, buy a new battery.

All you need to do is disconnect one of the battery terminals for like 5 minutes..a lil more if you think you deid not wait long enough. reconnecvt the battery terminal and wait like one or two minutes for all the lights on the dash to go away. that's a master reset. Good Luck

User Avatar

reset button for what? if you want to reset everything there isn't a button but you can dissconnect the negative battery cable and wait about ten minutes that should clear everything
