Not sure if this helps .... but ...
I think there is as procedure in your manual to manually dis-engage from 4 low to hi gear ... Perhaps if you try that - it will get you into 4/2 hi for now ...
Also, there is a TSB on the 3rd door handle ... below ...
Door (Third) - Hard to Open/Handle Breakage
File In Section: 08 - Body and Accessories
Bulletin No.: 02-08-64-007
Date: March, 2002
Third Door Hard to Open and/or Handle Breakage
(Adjust Lock Rods)
1996-2002 Chevrolet and GMC S/T Extended Cab Pickup Models (S-10, Sonoma)
Some customers may comment that the third door is hard to open and/or the door handle may be broken.
The lock rods may be improperly adjusted.
Adjust the lock rods using the following procedure:
1. Remove the door trim.
2. Release both lock rod rods from the lock rod retainers.
3. Position the upper lock rod first. Refer to arrow in illustration. Position the lock rod in the retainer so that there is 10 to 12 mm (0.39 to 0.47 in) (Approximately 11-12 threads showing) from the end of the lock rod.
Important :Make sure the upper striker is not bound against the latch. If this happens, you must push the door inboard to release the latch. To correct a bound latch, adjust the striker until the striker is centered with the latch.
4. Position the lower lock rod in the retainer where it rests, usually 5.0 to 6 mm (0.19 to 0.23 in) of threads from the end of the rod after the upper lock rod is locked in place.
5. Install the door trim.

Thanks a lot! I think that is exactly our problem with the door. It was always hard to open until the day it snapped. Once we get the new part we will definitely try that!
I will check out the manual on the 4W drive low tonight. Is there a way I can search for TSBs myself?

I posted an earlier message concerning this - so take a look/search. In summary - for about 15 - ~ $19 PER vehicle you can get access to a LOT of the schematics, diagrams, TSB's, recalls, etc., etc. Go to alldata.com and go the the DIY section ...
Good Luck !!

try the relays. There are usually two on the firewall for the fuel pump. If the relay is bad the fuel pump will not engage. You msut replace both relays when you replace them. You can see if they are the problem by jumping them. You can take a wire and put it from one pin to another and it should engage the fuel pump. Without seeing your relays I couldn't tell you which pins though.

also trouble shoot the relays. They may be bad and are preventing the fuel pump from engaging.

Youre problem lies most likley in youre computer. 99+ vortecs used VATS wich makes the truck not start without the correct key. Change youre computer to a 96-97 computer and I bet it starts. You can also have the computer reprogrammed but it costs 300$ or more. You can get a cheap computer from a local junkyard for around 100-200.

May 10, 2005 (9:52 pm)
hey, i recently bought an '03 s10 with 5k miles. i go to college in rochester ny, and was wondering how the brakes on the ls 2wd are in the winter. i always assumed the truck had discs in the front and drums in the back, but i'm not sure, i don't have the truck here right now. and if they do have drums, are there any conversions i can buy for the back? how are they in the snow? thx.
#720 of 2018 Re: 89 S-10, What else should I check? O2 sensor? [alcan]
May 14, 2005 (5:11 pm)
It runs good at idle for about 10 minutes then reves up high - then dies. Won't start for a couple hours afterward. Code 12 blinks always... reset it and tried again, just blinks 12, nothing else. Sounded like it may be sucking air but can't find a pin hole anywhere. Any other suggestions? Has new wires, plugs, distributer, throttlebody, fuel filter, fuel pickup, oil level is fine, ???? can't figure it out especially with the codes coming back as 12 all the time.

I have a 97 S-10 2.2 and am also having fuel lick from the back fuel injector. I went and got a new injecter and it filled my cylender up with fuel and started licking fuel from the exauste. We pulled it apart and found the new injecter was staying open and sending fuel into the air intake. Do you have any ideas as to what I need to do or what I can do.
