When I start my vehicle, the ABS and brakes lights go on, security light, and radio shuts off, or is on with no sound, the 4 wheel drive light flashes back and fourth between 4 wheel and 2 wheel drive, engine shuts off, while driving, then turns back on, this is the same problem all the recalled GM cars are having why is the 2002 Trailblazer not part of the recall?

When I first purchased the vehicle a couple days later I noticed the steering columns ability to turn was very hard and making loud noises. I fought continuously with the dealership to fix the issue and finally after several attempts they agreed to fix it. Then 2 months later were driving my son to the airport and the car stopped and began to smoke, come to find out the radiator had a hole in it and there was some type of temporary stop leak stuff put in it to allow a consumer to drive for a short amount of time before the problem would arise again. So now my family and I are out of transportation and im still paying a car note on this vehicle, I feel totally taken advantage of and wonder how any dealer can go to sleep at night knowing they've been deceptive in the selling of a vehicle to a family. The truck is my children and I only way of getting around and its hard enough on me as a single mother, this is just one more problem I didn't anticipate, that was why I use grant money that I received from school to purchase (what I though) was going to be reliable transportation. This situation has really been a burden and hardship for us, especially trying to figure out how were going to get from one place to another..im so frustrated and saddened by the dealerships neglect, non concern, and not properly fixing vehicles before marketing them.I would like to know what I can do about this matter because I brought the car without a warranty and it was used. Please help!!!!!!
