Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer
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...?..

Get the alternator checked and the serpentine belt condition and tension. Check the specific gravity of the battery.

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.

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,

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
