1998 S10 ABS light on, blower motor and wiper motor quit working

I replaced the right front fender. I removed the battery and the tray. After reinstalling all parts the truck ran fine. The next day the battery was dead. I charged the battery in the truck and drove the following day. About 15 min into drive the wipers quit working(it was raining), the blower motor quit working and the ABS light came on. I have checked for a pinched wire, I have checked all ground wires, no blown fuses. I cannot figure out what is causeing this issue. the truck runs fine otherwise. Any ideas what to look for?

FYI......The Early model S-10 has a wiper motor recall...I would go over it again with a fine toothed comb...The odds of blower motor or blower motor resistor..,and the ABS all failing at the same time would be a head scratcher...But it is possible I guess..But I think it HAS to be in the wiring...Disconnect battery then reconnect to reset the computer ..Some relays are hard to check ..most people check fuses and then they say.." all relays are good..".. get owners manual and find blower relay...Does your AC STILL WORK...?..

Sounds like your computer got wet. Could also be a bad battery, make sure you do a load test and check it. Any auto parts store will check it for free.

SOURCE: changing wiper motor in chev s10

It's not bad. They make a special tool to remove the motor from the arm assembly, but with a little determination I was able to remove it with out the tool. If your wipers aren't working try running power to the motor first to test it. I swapped it out and the problem ended up being a bad ground in the switch. I bypassed that for a little while by running a jumper wire from the engine block to motor. It also could be the pulse module they are known for going bad in GM vehicles.

SOURCE: 2001 S-10, Blowing "ECM Batt" fuse after running for about 30 min

that fuse feeds power to fuel pump relay circuit that feeds pump could be defective pump,or damaged circuit wires that shorts out! and not a good idea to put higher fuse in circuit could cause more damage to circuit! but i know when your stuck, u do what it takes,so inspect circuit related to fuse,

SOURCE: windshield wipers quit working on 2003 chevrolet trailblazer. relays and fuses are okay.

There were some issues with ignition switches in those vehicles.It is easy to change and does not cost but about $30. Remove the column covers, unplug the switch, and depress the 2 white tabs holding it in place. Good Luck

How do I remove and reinstall a battery in an 850? (96)

Assuming it's still the factory set up.

Remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the cables on and remove the battery cables (negative/black cable first).

at the base of the battery tray there is a hold down retainer. the retainer is like a half moon piece with a tab that hangs over the base of the battery to lock it in place.

looking at the car it will be on the front left side edge of the battery.
Lift the retainer out using a rotating motion towards the battery while pulling up on it. BE CAREFUL!!! it can take some force to remove and when it does your hand will hit the nearest bracket there.

to reinstall sit the battery into the back edge of the tray like sliding in a baking tray into a low oven. this will allow the battery housing to fit under the back lip of the battery tray.

Slide the battery all the way towards the outside of the fender (towards your right) and reattach the hold down by rotating downwards while pushing down.

reattach the battery cables and you're done. now hopefully you have the radio code... if not go by the dealer and they can get it for you (if you still have the factory radio).

As a side note, if the cables are badly corroded they can be cleaned with normal hot (almost boiling) water and a light brush. we use the hot water out of the coffee maker. when clean apply some battery protector (from any parts store) to keep the cables from oxidizing.

1998 Mercury Mystique heater blower motor doesn't work. Have replaced everything and checked both fuses (both good). What next?

Don't know how the ABS light would be related to the blower motor, you said you checked everything - did you check the blower motor circuit for power and ground with a meter or a test light ?
Is the resistor getting power from the relay ?

How to replace the battery in a 2002 Dodge Intrepid

Hi there. The battery cell in this particular vehicle can be a little tricky to locate.You will first need to remove the right front tire. Next; Remove the right front inner fender liner. Once that is completed, you will expose the battery just to the inside of the right wheel fender liner. You can extract the battery at that point. Remember to remove the Neg- black post first, then, the Red+ positive post last.
