1997 chevy blazer s10 cranks but wont start

I just had my gear shifting cable replaced and the battery. I'm getting power. It cranks but wont turn over. It's been sitting for a year and the battey dead for six months. It was starting before the battery died. I was starting it every few days. Confused it was starting before the new cable. The old mechanic put the wrong cable on so I handshifted it into park and it started. Something has happend within the past six months

You have a new battery and it cranks. Turning over is cranking. You are saying it won't start after sitting for six months? What is an old mechanic? Was the cable installed at home during the one year layoff? It sounds as though you failed to hold the old mechanic responsible for installing the correct cable or adjusting the one you have ,so it will start. You have a safety switch issue by the sound of it. Make sure you have the right cable and then find out how to install and if applicable,adjust properly

Why wont my Chevy s10 Blazer 1991 start and have power to the cab I have headlights I have power going to my starter battery and alternator


Do the dash lites come on when you turn the key on? Are you saying the starter doesn't crank?

I'd have to be sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections all clean and tight.

The starter has two voltage circuits, one is hot all the time, the other circuit, sometimes called the starter s terminal, goes hot with the key in the crank position and is wired through neutral switch, if auto tranny. Did you try cranking it in neutral?

1997 chevy s10 blazerdash wont light up when key


the dash sound's like a fuse, check the fuse box under the hood and in the door jamb on the side of the dash, also check your fuel filter and fuel pump, im betting on the pump because i have a 2001 chevy blazer that has had two replaced and it has 233000km on it!

There are no free full diagrams on the net, you need to charge and test the battery, clean the battery cables and run a voltage drop test as well, replace them if the are badly corroded. Kragen will test the battery for free.
