#65 of 94 98 s10 all dash warning lights flash on and off
May 21, 2009 (5:24 am)
While driving, usually at low speed all of my warning lights flash on at the same time for 2-3 seconds, the speedo goes to 0 then back to speed indicated, fuel gauge and temp gauge do the same. Motor never skips a beat. Truck has 66,000 miles. Any thoughts?

well usually if a tps sensor is bad , it will cause the engine to rev and bog down if u have good fuel flow and the pump is working right then more than likely its the tps sensor. they arent expensive though , its easier to just replace it.

Problem solved. The heat shield covering the starter had come loose and was arcing between the exhaust pipe and the hot lead on the starter.

S10 2.2 manual 5-speed 1997. My engine light came on...Auto Zone said it was the O2 sensors and converter. Took it to a muffler shop and they got the same answer. The thing is that I'm getting 22 mpg in town and about 26 on the road with no hesitations, no lack of power or anything. I replaced all of it about 120,000 miles ago. At that time, it was all broken up inside and I had a major loss of power. The only work I've had done recently is replacing the spark plugs and it came on a week later. Coincidence?

The bypass lead from the engine control computer to the ignition module in the distributor is disconnected whenever the base timing is checked or adjusted. (The base timing is checked whenever a 'smog test check' is performed. The connector in my truck is under the carpet on the passenger side just under the dashboard. I am told the location of this connector varies somewhat from locations in the engine compartment to locations in the cab. If you are gettng intermittent 'code 42's' make sure this connector is securely made and that there is no short or break in the wiring. Otherwise it may be necessary to replace the ignition module.

If you used factory plugs, coincidence. If not, go back to factory plugs.

Well you need at least a code reader, all auto parts stores stock them, Walmart too
I'm pretty sure.
