Q: 2006 trailblazer no start.

Move the shifter to Neutral and try to start it. If it starts, it is probably a bad neutral safety switch. If not, it could possible be a bad [ignition switch](https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/ignition-switch-replacement or anti-theft system issue - which will probably be related to the ignition switch. It could also be a faulty PCM - or broken wire to the PCM. You may want to try a local GM shop before throwing parts at it, as that can get expensive if the parts you replace don’t solve the problem, and being electronic parts, there is generally a no return policy on them. If after this, you are finding no success, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to perform a no start inspection to definitively diagnose the issue.
