Fuel pump,lights,everthing stopped working but battery and starter works

Look for a broken fusible link at the starter power power terminal. Not easy to get to sometimes. May be able to apply power to a power link on the firewall. Look for the thick red wires.

My 2006 chevy trailblazer 2wd 6cyl wont start. makes clicking noise, then nothing lights/radio etc work but wont start what is it

You got a jump and it ran fine? It's your battery. The lights and radio are much easier for a battery to handle than spinning a car engine. Again, if all you needed was a jump, you have a bad battery.

1987 dakota, will not crank over, battery,starter fine, whats wrong?

If automatic could possibly be safety engage on shifter; or if automatic could be the safety switch on clutch. On auto try to rock vehicle and reengage shifter. Standard check clutch switch.

Ive replaced the battery and starter but it still wont turn over' has power and it starts to click but nothing. 1996 chevy blazer

Check that the battery has at least 13.6 volts and if it does the the starter solenoid may be bad as this occurs frequently these days with rebuilt starters. You may need to return the starter for a replacement but before doing that make sure both your battery cables are clean and tight at both ends.

1987 k5 blazer dies during driving

Make sure your battery is secured by a good battery hold-down system...if the battery shifts in the tray and the positive terminal touches the fender, the dead short will immediately kill the vehicle.
Also, take the alternator to a parts store and have it tested if your battery is held down firmly. The whining noise can be bad alternator bearings. On a vehicle of this vintage, this is a possibility for the noise. It is furthermore possible that the alternator has died electrically, and during a lengthy drive, the vehicle's own electrical consumption will drain the battery and the vehicle will die en route.
When you jump it off, it gets enough charge from the donor vehicle to drive, but if the alternator is dead, it can't keep the vehicle supplied with enough energy to operate.

How do i change the starter on a 1987 chev blazer

I am assuming your Blazer is an S10 4 wheel drive with a 6 cyl. engine (if i'm wrong...let me know). As you can see by this web link: (copy & paste)

The diagram shows that it is located under the vehicle and held in place by at least two long hex head bolts. Before removing it's a good practice to take off your positive cable at the battery first. Now remove electrical wires at the starter and then unbolt it, or sometimes its easier to get at the electrical wires if you unbolt it first, but be careful...the starter is quite heavy! Make sure to hold it up while unbolting so it won't just fall to the ground and possibly causing damage to the electrical wires still attached! Always better if you can remove the wires first to avoid that from happening. Now reverse the process to install your new one...and put your cable back on the battery. Hope I helped you!
