Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
Have changed the switch on the tranny and still no help.... Now the battery is draining completely overnight as to where it needs to be either charged or jump started... 4.3l 5 speed manual
Any info would be greatly appreciated
I have a similar problem right now on two vehicles!
I discovered the problem I have is with the after-market radio!
It is wired into the electrical system some way I do not understand. May I suggest a temporary solution while you continue to ask until you find the real problem?
Please remove the bulbs of the interior lights, unless there are too many of them or you can't find a way to do that.
ALSO, if you will disconnect the battery each time you are finished driving, and re-connect it when you are ready to drive again, that will save you a lot of frustration while you are waiting to find the fix.
I think you should not see a spark when you touch the un-hooked battery cable to the battery. If you do, the short is still there.

Yes it screws in on right side of tramission and you will need a 7/8 inch deep socket to remove it. You may be able to clean the old one once it is removed. There is a little ball thatgets dirty and may you can get by with cleaning it. Good Luck. Ed

go to autozone.com and you can register any type car and they have pretty good prints and service manuals on line. I have an 89 chevy s10 I just rebuilt my motor and overhauled the complete truck just waiting on a new paint job. best of luck

your power starts at the brake light fuse,check with a test light,then proceed to stop light switch on brake pedal under dash,one wire will be hot when when you check it with your test light, the other won't be until you press down the brake pedal then the power flows through to the second wire,if no power to second wire replace switch,if you have power remove tail light bulbs and check for power in side socket.
