#32 of 444 HEADLIGHT'S
Jan 12, 2007 (9:41 pm)
I have a 1995 S10 and when the regular headlight's are turned on there is no light from the headlight's....the high beams do work when it is selected and when the light's are off the daytime running lights are working aswell, it's just when the regular headlights are turned on i get nothing. Can someone offer any advice????

I too have a 1995 S10 whose headlamps suddenly stopped working but the highbeams and daytime running lights work OK. About a year ago, I had a problem with the headlamps intermittently switching off and on; to fix, my dealer replaced the entire turn signal arm (with the wiper switch and cruise controls, cost more than $500). Am hoping the problem is NOT in that arm. Will welcome advice ... for my problem seems identical to that of catdug.

Hey There I am having a problem with my brake lights as they are staying on after I turn the truck off. I have just taken the fuse out for now but was wondering if there is a brake light switch or connection that is lose and where to locate it. Any help would be great thanks.

I have had the same problem with my 98 S-10. I have yet to figure out exactly what it is. but I can tell you what it is not. double check to make sure the brake light above the cab is not on. If that is working properly then it is not the switch on the brake pedal. Every mechanic I have talked to has tried to get me to change that, and I have and it won't fix it.
Mine has since gone from staying on all the time to just being on when the car is running, to not working any of my blinkers, to last night everything electrical just died when I pulled in my driveway. i am not sure exactly what it is, but if you find out let me know.

I had a similar problem with one of my kids car. Come to find out someone had replaced one of the rear tail lights with a wrong bulb which was causing a feed back problem. It was acting really weird. After I got the correct bulb installed it went back to acting normal.

The wiper motor may is probably wired with a hold in circuit. Once the wipers begin a cycle, a seprate/other switch closes and remains closed until the wipers complete the cycle and then the hold in switch opens (and Wiper motor stops). This is so that when you manually shut off the wipers in the up swing of a cycle, the wipers complete the swing and stop at the bottom.
I'd guess that this hold in position switch is bad, mis-adjusted or bent/damaged. I'm not sure exactly where iti is - but I guess on or in the wiper motor or linkage. If it's in the motor - you may need to swap it out. ...
LEt us know what you find ???
#39 of 444 95 S10 heater/ ac blower motor
Feb 14, 2007 (9:31 am)
Having problems with blower motor not wanting to come on. This has happened twice in past week and a half but it would then start the next time I started the engine. Now it has stopped and hasn't re-started. Checked fuse - OK. Which relay on the firewall runs the heater/ ac blower? That is the next thing I want to check.

I had the same problem with my 92 S-10 a couple of weeks ago. I replaced the blower relay first but found out the problem was the AC Heater Blower Motor Resistor Assembly p/n 10039426. Its about a 10 dollar part at places like Advance Auto Parts or Autozone and takes about 10 minutes to replace. On my S-10 its located on the blower housing, under the hood, on the passenger side. It has 4 wires going to it and 2 screws holding it on. It looks flat on the out side with wire terminals. Once removed, the underneath side looks like 3 coils hooked together and reminds you of something you would get in a Heath kit or a left over from "My Favorite Martian".
