Dash lights do not work 1996 Chev S-10 P/U

1996 Chevrolet S-10 pickup 4-cyl. I purchased this vehicle new in June 1996 and it has always been garaged kept and has 73,000 miles. Seldom used. However, the past few years the dash lights have not worked. At first it would work sometimes and sometimes not. I replaced the headlight switch and the dome light switch. Under warranty the rear middle brake light was replace (center brake light and dome light was a combined unit). The switches being replaced did not solve the problem. Now, they are not working at all. The lights on the CD player work as do the lights for the heater/a/c controls. I can not reach the plug on the back of the instrument panel. I suspect either this plug or the instrument panel itself. What do you think?

Also, you helped me with my daughters 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, dome light stayed on and radio controls and power windows did not work. I disconnected the battery for 30-minutes hoping to re-set the system and everything worked. Do you know why this worked?

Thank you very much.

It must have reset body control module. as for lights in dash bulbs could be blown or loose only way to tell is to remove cluster assembly.

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

Bought a used 1996 s 10 4 cyl. what kind of


Use the cheapest stuff you can find that has ethylene glycol in it.
Walmart sells both Dex-Cool (more expensive) and 'Mixes with any color' coolant of various brands. Just get the kind that mixes with any color and you'll be fine for up to 5 years, according to the label.

A used truck can accomodate the coolant that is inexpensive and have no problems.

Good luck on this one.

I can push the buttons and it sounds like it engages but it doesn't. It makes some clicking noises but just never engages into 4 high or 4 low. The truck only has 97,000 miles and the four wheel drive is...


Do not try to engage it any more there is an electric motor either on or in the transfer case that engages 4 wheel it may be bad. Any time you have a vehicle with options that you do not use use them every once in a while, once a month or so. Where yours was seldom used the switch in the motor is probably stuck in an unnatural position.
