Question about Chevrolet S 10

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 1997 Chevy S10. Lately it has been having trouble starting. I'll turn the key and it trys to turn over, but it takes a long time. It has always started so far, but I think it's getting close to not starting at all. Does anyone know what that could be? I appreciate your help.

Go to a local starter shop and by a brush and cap for this starter I had the same problem with a lawn mower same consept after the brushes get wore out the motor will be slow to start. The springs or the brushes are wore out. Very simple and cost effective rather than buying a new starter down the road.

If you can take it to someplace and have the computer scanned for trouble codes, it should indicate where the problem is. I'm pretty sure it's the torque converter solenoid, but I will do some research and get back with you.

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!

Sounds like a starter problem, suggest you get it checked at your local trusted mechanic the next time it starts... If the starter is your problem it wont start for many more times.

Key won't turn


look at the bottom side of your steering column, the plastic covering... There's a little round plastic piece that is removeable, it's pretty much right under the ignition key switch. Remove it. If you can see up in there, there's a small round metal piece, that's the release for the key to turn. Try pressing is gently with an ink pen and turning the key at the same time.

2000 Chevy s10 starting problem


Check the ignition and Engine relay switches located under the hood. Sometimes relays go weak with age and even a bump on the road will shut them off. If you can turn the truck on, take it to Autozone or similar store for a free DTC scan code.

Engine turns over but will not start


Hi there yep the switches are basically in the same location.Try the next time this happens to bump on the steering wheel while cranking or pushing in on the steering wheel towards the windshield if it starts right up you'll know for sure that its the switch or its out of ajustment.
