I am having the exact same problem with my 2002 Sonoma. Did you ever find the problem? One thing I noticed is that if I turn the ignition key only 1/2 way the Odometer and PRNDL lights both come on??? However, my Odometer now reads in km instead of miles??? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
#437 of 444 S-10 starter won't disingage
Feb 02, 2013 (3:55 pm)
2000 S-10 2.2L 4cyc: After I start p/u the starter will not stop running, I have to pull the relay out of the fuse block in engine compartment to stop the starter form running. I replaced the starter today with a new one but still have same problem. After engine is shut off I can replace the relay until next time i start truck. I'm wondering if it could be a bad ignition switch? Anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions would be most helpful.

I'm having a problem with my radio on my 1990 gmc s15. Every time I open the driver or passenger door the radio goes blank and then when I shut the door it comes back on but it resets itself. I've checked all my connections and there good so I don't know what it could be. If any one could help that would be great.

Could be a loose electrical cable or ground wire that is vibrating while you drive (causing the light flicker), then loses contact on hard turns (causing the stall).

#441 of 444 dash control panel haywire
Sep 22, 2013 (1:40 pm)
My husband's 2005 Chevy S-10's dashboard control panel has gone haywire. First it was the speedometer, which would jump around from 10 to 100 mph at any speed. Then the gas gauge stayed on empty no matter how much gas was there. Now the oil gauge wags like a puppy's tail (yes, he just had an oil change and they assured him there was nothing wrong). Nothing on the control panel can be trusted, and the warning beeps are insane. Is this a wiring issue or a computer issue? And about how much does it cost to replace the computer, if that's the problem?

Send the dash out and have it rebuilt. Check Ebay, there are several people on there that do that kind of work. It usually costs between $200 and $300.
#443 of 444 Interior light circuit 2001 S10 zr2
Nov 16, 2013 (11:12 am)
My sons is away for a few month and whenever I try start his truck after a week or so the battery is dead. I just charged the battery and load tested it is fine.
I also just finished testing the electrical circuit via Amp meter between battery ground terminal and ground wire.
I discovered I have .22 amp draw when everything is off. I pulled all the fuses and when I pulled the interior light fuse the amperage draw went down to .02 amps.
I pulled all the bulbs in the system I could find: light dome, under dash left right lights, mirror left right reading lights and finally glove box and locked doors, waited for circuit to complete cycle no change amperage draw when everything I unplugged off still .22 amp so nothing I can find staying off due to faulty switch or closure
The truck does not have a under hood light that I can find.
I did notice when you lift outside handles it activates light circuit is there any way of disconnected each door circuit to test?
What circuit am I missing. Is there something else connected to this circuit I am not finding??
Any help greatly appreciated
