Question about 1996 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
I have a 1996 chevy s-10 that will not start. I went out to it today to start it and nothing happened. The radio and other lights come on, as well as the fuel pump, but when i try to crank it over nothing happens. I believe the alternator went out. Can anyone help? Thank you.
If Radio And Lights Come On , But No Crank this What you Look For
Check Battery For Full Charge 12.5 VOLTS
Check For GOOD GROUND @ Battery.
Then Check For Start Trigger Power << This is the Small Wire that Goes to Starter It Comes from Ignition Switch and Is Hot (HAS POWER) Only when Key is In START Position. Check With A TEST LIGHT, If You Have POWER When Key is turned to the START Position Then You Have A STARTER Problem, If NO Power When in Start Position Then You Have A Neutral Safety Switch Problem. If you Find that it is A STARTER Problem, Use A Large HAMMER to SMACK the Starter 2-4 times them try to Start it If it Does Start Then You Truly Know IT IS The Starter. But Really if you Fallow These Directions, You Can Narrow it Down to One of the TWO Components Mentioned here.
N O T E : The ALTERNATORS PURPOSE is to Put Voltage back into Battery that Starter Takes OUT from Starting Engine, And to Provide Power to EVERYTHING after Engine is STARTED if it IS BAD, then The Battery Will BE DEAD. A QUICK Test for it is.>> AFTER Engine is STARTED Take The - NEGATIVE Battery Terminal OFF, IF the Engine Continues to RUN Alternator is GOOD If ENGINE Stops Running Have Alternator REtested. Because Alternator is Supposed to Provide Power to Ignition System and ALL Other Electrical Components Without Battery being Connected.
