Question about 2001 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

2001 Chevy s-10. el. locks powered w/ign. off.??

The electric locks on my truck are still getting power with the ignition switch off. I pulled the fuse, and it sparks and the locks click with the ignition off and key removed. Also, the locks don't function with the key on.

    Sorry it's taken a bit to respond. I removed the door panel and dash to check things. Put it back together and removed the fuse for the door locks. No problems with the battery draining. When I plug in the fuse, the solenoid in the door clicks. So for now, I've left the fuse out.

    This is more than a small draw for the relay. The solenoid or lock motor in the drivers door buzzes when the fuse is installed. The door lock switch does not work, but does cause the relay under the dash to click. But the lock motor remains buzzing and does not actuate the lock.

    Have you ruled out the Relay? They should have power w/key off as this is needed for remote lock and Saftey.

    Im Sorry I Misread the Problem at First . Yes It Should Have Power With Key Off NO It Sounds to Me LIKE The Solenoid is Stuck By the Relay Failure or Phisicaly ITSELF.It Could be that the Relay Has Lost ITS GROUND Run A DIRECT GROUND TO IT PLUG IN FUSE & Check Make Sure the Fuse And Ajasent Fuses are not Damaged. So So Sorry I Waisted your time at First I had A Brain-FADE Event- Grounding Is Crucial With Power Door Locks so Be EXTRA SURE About them. Also The Lock MecheniZem itself Drys up too Lube With PB Blaster AND the Solinoid. If All else Fails I Would Replece the Solinoid and The Relay. I Hope this Helps More than Before , and AGAIN I Opoligese. rejakwilson

I have a 2004 chevy surban that keeps blowing the ignition fuse what can cause this


You have a direct short to ground on that power feed circuit . You need to find a power distribution diagram to see what all gets is power from that fuse . Isolate the circuits till the fuse doesn't blow any more , then trace out that circuit that blows the fuse .

Which Ignition fuse ? Which fuse box is it in ? under hood , passenger compartment ?
IGN A
40A
Ignition Switch RUN, START, RUN/START/ACCY
IGN B
40A
Ignition Switch RUN/ACC, RUN/START
Could be ignition switch problem , Chevy has had problems with them .

2001 Chevy blazer came out one day and it was dinging as if my key was in it got it to start with a jump shut it off took battery out and charged it put it back in when I turn the key I get NOTHING!


Check power an grounds for ignition switch , voltage drop test the starter circuit . Go to youtube an check out videos on basic electrical trouble shooting , voltage drop testing ,how to read a wiring diagram .Then go here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagram ! Look at power distribution under electrical distribution . Check main fuse's Maxi fuse's that power the ignition switch ,IGN.C fuse 20amp in underhood fuse box ,then check crank fuse 10amp in same fuse box .Check the starter relay in the under hood fuse box . Check the circuit form ignition switch to the starter relay , pull the relay out an look on the bottom you should see 4 set's of numbers 30 - 87 - 85 - 86 . Pin 30 or 87 should have battery voltage ,one or the other ,not both . if you jump those two at the base (where it plugs in ) not the relay pins . It should crank the engine ( if starter is good an there are no opens in the circuit ) Pin's 85 an 86 are the control side of the relay ! You may want to check out videos on how a relay works also > Good luck hope this helps

Turn signal windshield wipers radio windows doorlocks all not working -fuses are all ok


Remind me not to ask for a ride from you. When you jiggle the key you are probably connecting, or re-connecting, the power from the ignition switch to that portion of the fuse panel that covers all those things that don't work. Except for the power door locks- that may be a separate issue. But everything else only has power when the key is in on (run) or start. And the fuses to them only have power from the ignition switch when the position is in on or run. You have a bad, worn lock cylinder, or a bad electrical portion of the ignition switch. You'd have to pull the cover shrouds off the steering column to see and get to the parts.

No power to anything


sounds to me the rod from key switch to starter/ign switch is not where it should be. it probably slipped out when you had the key switch out. 23075457-awhy2tj3hoeu5futbuxdq4rw-3-0.png

2001 chevy impala security light keeps coming on


This is a problem with chevy vehicles that have the system theft light. after a couple of years of using the key, the lock tumblers inside the ignition switch tend to wear out and so causing the system to think it's being stolen. Now you have to put the key in and turn the ignition to the on position, without cranking the car and leave it for 10 minutes until the theft light goes out. Very annoying especially if you're in a hurry. The dealer cost to repair the ignition switch goes for about $600-$800. that includes re-teaching the key.
