Question about 1986 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

1 Answer

Radio, front signal lights all not working

Hi - I had an accessory plugged into the cigarette lighter; and the plug came apart, causing lots of sparks. Since then the radio does not work, nor do the front signal lights (back are fine). The fuses appear fine. I am pretty non-mechanical; help!

Thanks, C

Before replacing lighter socket, try gluing it with super glue. Sounds like your only problem is that socket is moving because of broken plastic. Or you can buy aftermarket accessory plugs from autoparts stores and you can get them with up to three outlets for multiple plug ins.

The cigarette lighter not work


First and most simple, get a new cigarette lighter. Stores sell just the part that plugs into the dash. If that does not solve the problem, check the fuse box. If that is not the problem, you will have to tear apart the dash, usually just take out the radio and replace the entire cigarette lighter.

Check behind the dash for loose wiring connections. Check for bulkhead connectors that could have possibly come partially apart. Check for any under dash grounds that are ready to break or have become frayed.
