Angry S-10 Blazer 2.8 2 wheel drive

Yesterday i cranked my truck up and it started fine, left the house and got about 3/4 miles down the road My truck started getting back, or missing when I pressed the gas so I pull off the road and before I could stop good the truck cut off. I tried to start it back and it will not start.

I first check to see if it was getting any fuel and its not so Im thinking of fuel filter, fuel pump, etc. but when I check the lights no lights, no horn, no radio. So I dont know whats going on. I also check my fuse box under the drivers side dash and no fuse was blown. Is there another fuse box in this truck somewhere that controls everything that I described above.

Please Help,
Brian

First you better check your battery, cables and alternator. Sounds like it may have shut down from lack of voltage.

First you have to find out where you power is be interupted. How did you determine the battery was fully charged and in good health?

If AdvanceAuto is like most parts places, they don't have the capacity/ability to fully load test a battery.

Take it somewhere thay have the ability to PROPERLY load test it.

Another possibility is you smoked a fusible link somewhere in the system.

Fusible links are short pieces of wire that are placed "in line" with a wire. They are designed to melt (smoke) under excessive current draws just like fuses. The insulations will pull apart easily if there melted. You find them in and around the wires coming off the battery and near starters in some applications.

You can buy replacements at most auto parts stores.

You cut out the old one and splice in a new one. Make sure you get the proper gauge for the wire.
