Thanks, that answers the question that I was about to ask.

I had been lurking around that forum, but missed that thread. The schematics are the most useful part of it, but I must confess that I only half understand how to read them. If what I understood is right, the fuse is after the relays in the circuit, so the power to it comes from the relays, which helps some.

The problem is that there appears to be 6 relays involved in the problem, and I'm not yet clear on their position or appearance. Googling, I found two totally different relays that were supposed to be for the locks, so I don't know which is actually needed, or if both are used? Appearance and location would make it simple to check, because I would simply buy a relay and try it out...assuming that all 6 aren't bad.

EDIT: Oops! I think that I was wrong, and the fuse is the power source for the circuit.

Obviously, I can't scrape it off, and the Goo Gone remover says that it will remove paint, so that is out. How can I do it without damaging the paint?

The only thing that comes to mind is using a heat gun, that is like a hair dryer on steriods, but that is somewhat expensive, since I would have to buy one. Is there any other option?
A heat gun may cause your paintwork to bubble! I would try steaming it off!

That's a good idea, which I did think about, but only after having finished removing the sticker. The after thought occurred when in the bathroom and seeing the steam gun in the closet.

A question popped into my head, regarding the wheel that I mentioned back in post # 29...since it is an alloy wheel, and I have never had any alloy wheels, I started probing my memory, and vaguely recalled hearing that it is easy to destroy a wheel like that, when mounting a tire. Not sure why, but I'm wondering if there is something special about how the mounting should be handled?

Alloy wheels are very strong, and are you asking about manually mounting a tire to the wheel or the wheel to the swing arm on that you plan on installing on the back of the Blazer?

You should always let a tire shop mount and dismount the tire from the wheel, it's safer using the right tools.

A tire machine has the ability to scratch and damage the finish on an alloy wheel, which could be what you recall hearing, won't destroy it though.

No, I'm thinking of the mounting of the tire to the wheel. I think that the spare tire carrier will have to wait for a while, because the only one that I've found so far costs $149.99 + $49.99 shipping. With so many other things on the agenda, this will have to take a backseat to them. Since the wheel that i bought was used, and will be used for the spare, I'm less concerned about scratching it, than something worse. It was years ago when I heard about the possibility of damage, so maybe they have been improved now...I hope. However, the seller made a point of stating that it wasn't warped, which I imagine would be caused by a mounting machine, rather than normal usage, so I'm uncertain.

EDIT: Or maybe it was when a tire is mounted to the vehicle with an air ratchet...I don't know.

it's kinda hard to warp a wheel with a tire machine. Air Impact won't do it either.
I've had 22 different sets of wheels on my 2 cars in the past 10 years and used an impact to remove them and put them on.
And my brother mounts and balances my tires for me at his shop.
Warping/bending results from pot holes, curbs, and running over things.

I just had these tires mounted a couple of weeks ago,

Unusual tread, but they look good.
