    I have the same issue. Have power to the horn relay but that's it. Smells like a fusable link somewhere.

87 Chevy s10 blazer turns over won't start, no head lights, Dom light, could it be a fuseable link?

test the battery first with a load tester .if you dont have one take battery to local auto parts store they should check it for free. If battery is good start checking for bad termanal connections .check for dirty or bad connection on your starter also check ground connection for dirt or no connection these are the most common problems. if this was helpful please leave good feed back.

Had a faulty stater in my 1990 c1500, replaced it but still wont crank. battery has 12.2 volts when tested. ?

while the car is running...the battery should give you at least 14 volts...
if it gives might need to check the alternator...
if the alternator is wont charge the battery and then the car will die...
if its giving the right amount of volts...
then try to bypass the starter...bring a screw driver and touch the battery terminal on the starter with any ground connection on the vehicle...if it starts...then the starter is not good...if it doesn't start...then you might have a electrical problem...
Good Luck!

What causes the chevy s10 not to get no electrical power at all?

Check if your battery is good. Use a meter for this. You need 12 to 14 volts. Check your terminal connections are solid and clean. If it is not clean you will have to open them and clean using a soltuion from the auto parts store.

if you removed the dome lightbulb then there is no longer a draw from the battery there but if the ashtray light light does not go out then over a period the battery will go dead or drained to the point to not the vehicle
