Probably in the wiring harness from the back lights to the front of the truck. If a trailer hitch is installed, check for the wiring connections there.

Obviously you have a short somehow power is bleading over to this circuit. You may be forced to do some hard debuging (i.e wiring diagram, test light isolate the problem on the circuit).

If I were taking a guess I would try the following:
1) Remove the fuse for the taillight
2) If the light goes out I would start looking at the dashboard light switch
3) If the light does not go out then I would start looking toward the rear end of the truck wires that are scouffed, trailer light connections ect.

Hope this gives you a start, needless to say a short can take forever to find.

SOURCE: 1987 s10 chevy truck 4x4 not engaging

By the way, if that happens again (Same thing happened to me) It was inside the front diff. That vacuum actuator that sits on the passenger side that has a vacuum hose going up to it has a built in cable that plugs into the front diff. There are little springs that go bad and there is no tension on the cable. It retracts but doesn't engage the axle.

It's 3 bolts, then pry it open just enough to get access to the spring that holds the cable together. ;) That's how I fixed my problem permanently

I had a 1987 s10 4x4 and put a new battery in it and the 4x4 quit. turns out the vacuum control is right behind battery. listen for sucking sound and see if it is loose on yours.

99 Chevy S10 driver side taillight not working all other lights work


check the ground wire to make sure it's not corroded or broken

check the socket and bulb, but that's an obvious thing to do first ; switch it from left to right and see if they work on the opposite side

Hey,I have an 03 chevy s10,I recently tried putting a pig tail on it (straight wired) and had no luck,gave up and crimped all the wire back together,and today a guy at work noticed I had no taillights,but...


I would check your tail light fuse first then test the brown wire in the tail light harness where you origionally cut into it. With the lights on there should be around 12v on it. if not you may have pulled the wire too hard and broke it upstream. Test to see if there is 12v at the fuse ad if there is, your trouble should be in the wire between the fuse and the spot where you cut into it.

Chevy S10. When my running lights are on everything works (except turn signals), front lights, tail lights brake lights. When I turn on my headlights turn signals still dont work everything comes on fine...


Check the grounds on your wiring.
If you have a trailer harness, make sure there are no shorts, or crusty connections

Good Luck chasing the gremlins

Tail lights not working


there is a under hood fuse panel, and that is where the fuse for the lights is.
