1989 S10 Blazer Wiring Issue

Ok. I'm getting a power draw somewhere in the factory wiring under the dashboard. i know this much because a couple days ago while i was driving, the truck suddenly shut itself off and then restarted with no working gauges. I checked and replaced the fuse for the gauges and as soon as i went to turn the key to start the truck up again, the fuse popped. And then when i was driving today, the truck ran fine until it died completely and had to be jumped to get it to start. So whatever is drawing the power has killed the alternator also.

My 1989 chevy s10 blazers sw runners are out, but my head lights work, and i know its not the blubs.

Try checking the fuses. There are two sets, one under the hood on the right side, and one under your steering column to your left which may be a little difficult to get to. If that's not it , you have a short in your wire leading from your sw runners not your headlights. I hope that helps.

1991 Chevy Blazer dashboard lights are burned out. Can't read

Your dash needs to come out. These bulbs push into a plastic piece that "twists" into the back of the dash board. (About a 1/4 turn) Unless you can get at them from underneath, but I think it's to tight.

89 chevy s10 blazer puff smoke out tailpipe when 1st started

A puff of smoke when you start up indicates worn valve seals.That's why all your work didn't fix the problem and it doesn't show a code. It's a pain in the --- job that requires some specialized tools so I guess it depends on how bad it bugs you,if oyu want to fix it.

No power

At this point, I'd start tracing power from the battery (where you know it is) till you find a point where it stops. You either have a deteiorated terminal connection somewhere (under power distribution box?) or a burned fusable link.Most likely you will find it in the "large" wiring...which is why everything is out. I would do testing with a volt meter so you can identify voltage drops...often a test light will light because it draws far less than any system would but the same wire can break connection when under load,
