2001 chevy blazer starter issues

Check all your battery connections, especially the ground wire to the engine. I would recommend cleaning all your battery connections and terminals on the starter.

My husband put a new battery on our 2002 toyota and reversed the cables accidently. now the car starts but none of the electrical works. what could the problem be ?

If you have electronic gages, it probably fried the gages. It most likely fried the starter and alternator as well. I would start by taking the alternator and starter to your local car parts place and have them tested. If the starter is fried, that may be why nothing else works, as all of your power goes thru the soelanoid. Circuit breakers may or may not blow from reverse polarity.

The alternator on my 1992 Isuzu Trooper fried (green smoke pouring out), changed the alternator, charged the battery, checked all fuses; still no power, car will not start (no clicking sound, absolutly...

do the head lights work????????that is first
becaus it works key off a speaks volume to any tech

wild guess:
battery installed backwards or you made sparks
remove it or alt or starter.
fuses blew.
easy peasy japaneezy
or worse,there is always that.?

elaborations. pretending HL work.
buy and $10 voltmeter and end the guessing?
5min work and bingo.
wow this fuse has 12vdc one side and 0 other.?
or key on fuses, same.

there are many ways to do this.
start at end work back
start and begin (key) and work forward
or the middle (cuts job in half too)

so i go to the starter solenoid first.
if head lights dead i work them first....
starter 3 lugs.
outboard lug first.(batter + is battery installed backward?)
got +12v on the big lug (y/n) (outside lug)
connect meter neg test lead to battery neg lug for all tests.
if voltage drops fast? or does cranking
bad battery ,starter shorted or cables (or discharged battery) (we use an ammeter to discover shorted starters,or hand turn engine for seized engines.
next tiny lug, (called Key Line)
it goes hot 12v? cranking. so turn key.
does it go hot? (hot means 10to 12v cranking0
if yes, goes hot cranking on the tiny lug
(yes starter dead , or the battery minus lug is loose , the far end of minus bat cable must be tight.
no? that means the KEY line is dead.
the car if a/t tranny cuts the key line via the P/N switch,or some immobilizers., i stop here on key line, ask.

some cars have wire fuses, looks like wire, and are not. "fusible link wires"
if you change out starter or alt without battery neg lug not disconnected in step 1 ,you risk main fuses under hood(blowing or far worse)
so what does "good fuses mean" OP? (the looks)>?
or just dash fuses. tested skipped under hood.
fuses that look bad are
fuses that look ok, can in fact have hair line cracks so we actually test them or waste Huge time.
and go poor. (tests done wrong are highway-to-h3ll)
or looks like dog chasing his tail.
0 ohms good
12v both sides key on, good.07316db1-a220-4760-a228-0a546c4edbe8.jpg

My starter just went out on my s-10 its a 96 and im not sure how to fix it is there any easy way ?

Some starters are hard to get to but most of them can be removed fairly easy. Remember to remove the battery cables first.

Tried starting my 1999 dodge ram 2500 diesel but wont turn over.

If your positive and negative terminals are clean, both ends... not just battery, you should hear your starter relay click each time you turn the ignition key to 'start'. If no click, check connections to relay, If still no click, relay may be the problem. Assuming your battery or batteries are charged and you only here the click of the relay and no starter action, good chance the starter solenoid is in poor condidtion, or history. An indication of this problem is the starter would work intermittently and finally quit working.
Its an easy cheap fix. First disconnect you positive cable on the battery so you don't fry yourself or anything expensive. Remove the starter. Undo usually four bolts that hold the starter case together and pull it apart. Its always a good idea to pay attention how it came apart so you put it back together the same way.
The starter solenoid is just an electrical contact switch that conducts high amperage to the starter motor during engine start. The contacts in this switch burn out over time. When you pull the starter housing apart, you will see that the solinoid contact switch is installed within the hump on the side of the starter housing. You will quickly see if the solinoid contacts are burnt or damaged. Most auto parts stores have a whole collection of contacts. I paid 3.85 Canadian for a set that didn't quite match the set in my 95 dodge cummins. 20 minutes of filing saved me the $600.00 my buddies were paying . "Rebuilt' my starter about 5 years ago... and starts every time. Hope this helps someone out.

Starter or wiring prob

If its the main heavy wire that is frying you cannot run this from coil. Should go straight to battery positive positive with heavy wire (8 guage) with a suitable fusible link. Auto elec should be able to do this cheap and easy.
