    1994 Oldsmobile Bravada with digital dash. I seem to have the opposite problem people have when it comes to dash lights, they just will not dim. Neither the digital dash, nor will the other incandescent dash lights dim. They will turn off when I move the switch to the lowest position. I figured...

I now have the issue whether the new taillights or the original taillights are on the truck. When the truck is off, I press down the brake pedal and all 3 brake lights work. With the truck...

    Interior lights work with all controls except the door switches. Any hints on removing them, especially driver's side. Blazer has been stored for several years and I'm guessing they are some corroded. Switches do work for the security system etc. Everything checks out except right at the...

It started fine. I drove it for a week, even after raining. Then I drove it in the rain, parked, turned it...

    Over the weekend I took my dash out and tried to fix it up. I was in the process of putting everything back together when I got to my gauges. I turned the key and none of the gauges were on. The green printed circuit board on the back seems to still be ok and everything else still works, radio...

Here are the...

    I was driving my 2003 S10 2.2 to work today and the radio, digital odometer (trip meter) and blower motor all shut off. After work I started the truck and everything was still dead except the radio was back on. I’ve found that the digital odometer will illuminate and work when in accessory mode...

    As the title suggests I replaced the head gaskets in my two-wheel drive, 4.3 L 97 s10. After reassembling the engine I turned the key to the accessory mode, at this point, I could hear the fuel pump kick on and all of the dash lights were illuminated, I noticed that there was a lower than normal...

    I feel dumb since I just pulled everything to swap out head gaskets and intake gaskets, but I can't find it in any Google searches nor can I find it under the hood. The truck sat for a while before I was able to put it back together, so my memory fails me. I know it's probably obvious what it...

    Hey guys, just joined. I don't actually have an S10 but my buddy does and I was helping him last weekend replacing his valve cover gaskets. We got all of that done, cleaned it up and reassembled everything. He went to start it and we got no power to the gauges/engine. We thought there was no...

Recently my digital dash has been going crazy only the speedometer tho everything else is working and when the speedometer flashes on it seems to work as well but the issue is I'd switches rapidly between mph, kph, and totally off.
