Drove it, parked it, came back 1 1/2 hours later and have not power to anywhere in the vehicle, no interior lights, no gauges, nothing. Only sign of life is the anti-theft light below the steering column. Any ideas?

SOURCE: I have a 2000 chevrolet S-10 with a 4.3L V-6.

Try this:

You will need to remove the battery and the tray. Under the tray about 8 to 10 inches down there will be a black box 1 inch by about 4inches. Remove the cover, there is a mega fuse there. Should be a 175 amp fuse. With a test light connected to ground, touch both sides of the fuse. If it only lights on one side its bad.

That fuse feeds the underhood fuse box which controls all the things you say don't work.

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Suburban: Fuel gauge reads empty, tank is half full

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

Bad ignition switch


I had the same thing happen to me with my 2002 Sable GS. Drove it home from work about 35 miles and shut it off. % hours later needed to run some errands and the car did nothing, did not start and there was no clicking. I cleaned my battery terminals ( the were dirty and dark colored but not your typical battery corrosion .. white chalky looking) and placed a battery charger on it and it started. I hope this helps someone.

Charging system failure


Most probably the alternator brushes are worn.
My second guess would be either the alternator's voltage regulator or bridge.

Although the computer said "charging system failure", you were able to drive the car, but all the electrical systems (headlights/taillights, power control unit, injectors, ignition etc) were powered by the battery current instead of the alternator current. The alternator wasn't able to recharge the battery and power the devices due to its failure.

After a couple miles you've discharged the battery to a point where its voltage was insufficient to power the instrument cluster (thus the speedo and fuel meter went down to zero). The engine's computer, injection, ignition and, let's call it "airbag controller", are far more critical for the passengers' and vehicle's safety and therefore were still able to work despite the battery voltage being so low. But some time later the battery was discharged to the point it was unable to power these most critical devices and the engine stopped.

If you don't have headlights, the battery connections would be the first thing to check. The truck gets power thru the cables going to the starter and ground to the engine and frame.
If you have headlights but nothing else when you turn the key on, it could be the key switch.

2004 z71 180000 miles. drove from VA to TX. Headlights started dimming, battery not charging indicator came on. Battery charging level is not in the red but on the lower side (9-14-19) showing inbetween 9...


if battery and alternator are good. i would check the wire from alternator to battery, they sometimes have a fusable link in the wire, that burns out. also check fuse box there may be a fuse and it may be blown! at battery with car running should be at least, 14 to 14.2. at battery when car is off should be about 12.8 to 13 volts. have a good day !!

Lost all electric power in car. Drove it 15 miles parked and 1 hour later nothing. The remote door unlock did not work and the dome light did not come on after manually opening. Tried to jump no luck. any...


This happened to me two weeks ago, i tried to jump it and nothing, sor I repalced the battery. A few days later I got a flat, and told the service guy at the shop what happened. He checked the voltage on the "jump points" and told me the jump points weren't connected to the battery. I found out that if you need to jump this vehicle, remove the fuse block,a nd put the jumper cables directly on the battery. I spent 100 bucks on a new battery for nothing!!!

Lesson Learned: Chevy "Jump Points" make me want to jump off a bridge!

All the classic symptoms of a bad starter. A bad starter will work fine when cold but once it heats up, will require more power to work. Shame on the dealer for not recognizing this! A new battery with a full charge will work for a little while but if its the starter, I'm sure the problem will return Have your charging system checked out (most places will do this free of charge) Assuming the charging system checks out ok, I'd have the starter checked. I hope this solution provided you with the information you were looking for. Best of luck!
