Question about 1989 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

I pulled into 7-11 and the Blazer ran fine. When I came back out, it wouldn't start. It turned over once, and then nothing. I thought it was the battery, so I exchanged it for a new one at Les Schwab, but it did not even turn over with the new battery. Any ideas what could be wrong?

Check and make sure your getting power to the starter.If you don`t` know how or you don`t` have a test light or meter.Then while someone is turning the key to start hit the starter with a hammer.Just don`t smash it to bits.If it turns over then your starter is the problem.If you do have a test light or meter then check power to the purple wire at the starter.The light should be nice and bright or the meter should read at least 9 volts or above.Another thing you can do is wiggle the shifter and make sure it is in park while trying to start it.This could mean you have a bad neutral safety switch.Good luck.

Try tapping on the starter while someone else turns the key to start.If it goes you need to replace the starter brushes.Make sure that the starter cables are not rotted and that they are tight on the starter before doing this.

Automatic Dodge neon SE 2002 will not start.. Ran error code got P1684. When I was driving it wouldn't get out of first gear, I put in park shut it off turned back on still wouldn't get out of first g


that code is set when you disconnect the battery. It can happen if you have bad connections. Sounds like you have a lot of things wrong.

Hi sounds like the typical fuel pump or filter problem with these cars, best way to tell is take top fuel hose off on fuel filter under hood, turn key on ignition (not start) and fuel should pump out, if not its your pump, just beware of doing when engine is hot

I have a 1997 chevy blazer. when you turn the key the engine will rotate but no spark.


Sounds like a problem I had. I needed a new fuel pump. A mechanic gave me a way get around it for a few days until I could get it brought it. He told me to turn the key to on (only far enough where the radio comes on) count to like 15 and then turn it back to off and then start it. That seemed to work for a bit and kept me from killing my starter. Once the fuel pump was replaced though, it ran great. I wouldn't suggest doing the "key" thing for an extended period though. Like I said I just did that a few days or so. I hope this helps you.

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.
I wouldn't do a fuel pump without more information.
