Starter was not working and me holding down the key. Something smoked. Replaced the starter. Starter relay working but no power into the starter relay( one in the fuse box). No dash inbicator lights. If I jumper them with power they work. All fuses are fine. Where else to look?
JA: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?
Customer: No codes as no power to the computer unless I place power into it. Only things that work are; horn
, inside lights. Oh ya the annoying ding for the key.
JA: Not a problem. You can work with the Chevy Mechanic to figure that out. What is the model/year of your Chevy?
Customer: 2000 s10 flex fuel.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. Checked all fuses and searched for fuseable links. Applied power around and items work. Just no power coming to the fuses.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Fuses that have power at all times still do. Ignition key engages starter relay but no power into relay. If I pass the relay starter turns. Will not start as nothing else has power unless I jumper each one.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
