had the same problem exactly was actually driving and it died...replaced everything the same as you and it still wouldn't start 400 bucks and 6 mechanics later I pulled the distributor and it looked ok but replaced it anyways...when i compared the new one to the old one i noticed the old one had alot more "play" in it....think i paid under 100 bucks for it, ran like a champ pulling my 5th wheel ever since
#431 of 437 Multiple Electrical issues - IS THERE ONE PROBLEM?
May 09, 2012 (3:10 pm)
I have a 1998 Sonoma SLE w/ the 4.3L 4x4.
I have the following electrical issues:
-Rear passenger light cluster
-Radio does not turn off w/ ignition (does turn off if passenger door opens and closes but not driver side)
-Airbag warning on and off
These were all issues when I purchased the truck, I just didn't realize it. Is it possible there is a single issue causing all of these probs or is it more likely there are separate issues for each one?

At first glance it appears that they are all separate issues.
wiper jets - clogged or disconnected hose.
cruise control - disconnected vacuum
radio not turning off - faulty door switch (does the cab light come on when you open the driver door?)
air bag warning - loose air bag connector or some other faulty sensor. get this checked... would hate for an inadvertent air bag to go off.
rear passenger light cluster - ???? what is this?
these are just quick and simple fixes and where I would start diagnosing. After that eliminating the easy ones, then I would dig into it deeper.
#433 of 437 99 s-10 electrical issue
May 16, 2012 (2:29 pm)
Hi all, I am having a problem with my s10's volt meter. Upon starting my car my voltage meter inside my dash varies, going from 14 volts to about around 11 then back up. Also the "check battery" light goes on and off sparatically. I thought it was a battery problem so i replaced it...no luck. I thought it could be the alternator. Replaced it.... no luck. After replacement it worked for about 2 months and then once again this problem came back. I replaced it again and still the problem is here. If anyone has a clue how to get this problem resolved please let me know. Thank you in advanced!

check the ground wires from the battery and alternator to the frame. Also check and replace the battery cables. Even if they don't look bad on the outside, corrosion can build up on the inside.

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 437 S-10 starter won't disingage
Feb 02, 2013 (4:55 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.
