2001 Chevy S10 pickup automatic electrical problem

Went to start truck everything seemed fine, lights on dash came on, then pop. tried again, door bell rang off and on. then no lights on dash, even the light under the hood stopped working. Large 30 fuse on far right side of fuse box under hood had blown, replaced it. Seemed like battery was dead, there could be no reason for that it was fine all day. Any thoughts or ideas on what to check? Still absolutely no electrical, door locks won't even work.

Reply to #17 - Warren. My son has a 2003 S10 that had problems with a rear brake light. Worked fine until he turned on his headlights. Then the turn signal would be dim and flash opposit of the left side. The fix was simple....each of the tail have a indepenant ground wire. Regrounded the light and the problem was solved. The ground is attached to the frame and was easy to reach. Hope this helps....

I have a 91 s-10 2WD Auto, 4.3l, Sport cab, Limited edition PU. My fuel, temp, and volt guage all give bad, false readings, have great power, no problems driving, starting. For the last two years I have had to replace the O2 sensors for inspection (Engine light on) I can just swap the same sensors around and it clears, I thought it must be a bad wire somewhere near the sensors, and just by changing them it moved the wire and temp. fixed the problem, but I can wiggle the wires all day long and unless I change (move) the sensors it dont help, any suggestions.

I bought a 2001 Chevy S-10 for my son. It ran perfect for three days, then he went to start it and the ECM B fuse blew. Replaced it started it up ran three miles, blew again. It did this several times. Could it be a bad computer. Need help. Thanks

I have all kinds of weird things going on..

including being dead dead dead , then coming back up like nothing...

no one seems to have any fixes here tho...

is that correct?

here is what i gather:

battery issue, corrosion possibly.. (my batt is new)

fuse box - might need to get a new one..

please email me if u wanna chat about this.

Having the same issue as Jamie #29. Have 2003 S10 Blazer. Replaced O2 sensor, fuel pump, battery, checked other fuses and they are working, new starter, wires look good - very frustrated because we still do not have ANY engine noise other than the fuel pump kicking in when we turn the key. Anyone have any ideas?

My instrument cluster lights went out as I was driving. I checked the fuse, it is good. Is there another fuse in the circuit or perhaps a relay.

thanks for taking a second to read.

Ok heres the deal. i have a 1997 chevy s10 2.2 . i put on my truck a hid kit. but i also i had the 4 quad healight relay kit on there before the hid was installed. when i pluged the hid kit in and then turned my head lights on the hid worked. but when i turned off the headlight switch, the dash high beem light stayed on. so when i pulled the fuse for the quad light relay. the light finaly went out. an hour later i tryed to start my truck. it started running realy bad and crappy. then it died and wont start. the check engine light came on. so i scanned it and it gave a few codes like, mutiple miss fires and tps throttle sensor low curcuit voltage. now it wont run. i checked the engine and my fuel pump turns on and i have spark. so i sprayed starting fluid in the intake manifold and it started. so i think i messed up the ecm? because the fuel injectors arnt spraying gas. so i got another ecm on the , and before i mess that one up i wanted to know if there was still somthing WRONG. since now when i turn my dial on my dash climate controll and its stuck in defrost mode and wont get out. i have checked all fuses and nothing blew. and funny thing is my headlights work fine high and low beams. and i already took off the quad headlight relay harnnes. how can the headlight wires mess with the computer? can anyone help? please let me know if i need to check a certain relay or anything????my dash is ripped apart right now but no burnt wires or fuses.hmmmmm.any info.? i would be happy. thanks az. socal

Just bought a 2001 Chevy S10 1500 and most of the time it was taking longer than it should to start. Mechanic found a bad check valve in the fuel pump causing fuel to drain back to the tank. Fuel pump will need to be replaced.
