Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
I have a 98 s10 with a 2.2 liter with a push button start. the truck ran just fine but water got into the fuse box. the truck will start if i turn the key off and while the truck is turning over turn the key to the on position. the engine runs just for a second and then dies.
How did the water get into the fuse pannel? Was this vehicle a flood victum? Or, just some rain. It kind of makes a difference on what I'm about to tell you. I guess if it was a little water from rain the first thing I would do is check the relays.They are nothing more than little switches ad water can have an effect on them. The points in them could be corroded, weaken the springs, etc. Start there. Then check wire connections for corrosion, and loose or broken wires. Do you have any type of repair manuals? If you can, identify the relays, many times there are several that are the same and you can move them around and interchange them to help you find a bad one. Other wise there are some electrical tests which you can perform on them, but you will need some electrical test equipment. Let me know if this fixes your problem or if you need to know how to test the relays.
If on the other hand this vehicle was flooded, you have a lot of checking to do, starting with the computer. Do you have a diagnostic tester? You may need one.
I hope this helps you.
