Question about 1991 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
In my 92 s10 blazer I put the key in the ignition and turn to the start position nothing happens. So I hot wire the starter with the key in the run position and the vehicle starts and runs fine. I am wondering if its the ignition switch or some kind of actuator in the key assembly and if its something a novice can fix rather easily with a chiltons book and a few of the right tools. I'm tired of lifting my hood to hotwire the vehicle and have tried a new key just to see if the other one was sloppy. Help me please -=)
On the 92 S-10 it sounds like the actuator rod that is connected to the ign switch on the bottom of the column could be possibly bent or the rack and pinion could be broken inside the column. The ign switch my be out of adjustment. You can try to adjust the ign switch on the bottom of the column yourself. If that does not work,my suggestion is if you are a novice is to take your vehicle to a mechanic to get the steering column fixed.
On the 91 blazer there are 2 fusible links that the battery cable connects to on the starter. Jack the vehicle up & use jack stands under the vehicle. With a test light check to see if there is power to the starter solenoid where the battery cable is hooked to. If there is power find the 2 wires that are on the same post that the battery cable is hooked to on the starter solenoid, they will have a white piece of round plastic (about a inch long) with a wire going into and out of it. This is the fusible link. Probe the wire before and after the round plastic. If there is power on one side and not the other side,you will need to replace the fusible link. You can use a inline fuse holder with a 25 to 30 amp fuse to replace the the fusible link.The fusible links supply power to the vehicle inside for the lights, radio, wipers,ign switch, etc.
