Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10
The cause of that could be;
1. A low battery, check it to make sure that the battery does have 12 volts. There might be a draw on the battery or the alternator may have quit charging the battery, see if the vehicle will jump-start and if it does start then check the voltage at the battery and it should be reading 14 to 16 volts if the alternator is charging the battery properly, but an internally shorted battery can cause similar conditions, and if the battery casing is bulged out then the battery is most likely not any good..
2. Low voltage/amperage to the starter motor because of a bad connection at the starter or the battery. Check the battery cables for loose cables or corroded connections and make sure that the battery connection are clean and they are not corroded.
3. The starter motor brushes are worn out and the starter motor will not turn, if you can tap on the rear of the starter housing while someone is holding the key in the start position sometimes the starter motor will turn the engine over, if that is the case then you should replace the starter.
4. A faulty ignition switch.
5. The engine has siezed up, I have seen it happen before but we do want to think about that, however it is another remote possibility.
