starter or ignition switch?
My 95 s-10 blazer won't start. When I try to start it the key stays in the run position and
the starter keeps cranking. Is it my starter or my ignition switch? The vehicle has a 4.3
vortex, auto trans and 4-,wheel drive
If the key stays in the he forward most position(start) then its the switch. If it comes back to the run position then it's probably going to be the starter.
The starter switch in the key ignition setting sends electric power to the starter. When you release the key after the start, the electricity current flow is suppose to stop the current to the starter. If this does not happen, the starter will continue to wind. Unless you have a direct short to the starter wire, (solenoid), the switch is not releasing the connection made by the key. So in short, (no pun intended) it is the switch.
I had same problem w/my 95 blazer. Replaced the ignition switch and that solved the problem. Cost me $69.00 at auto zone.Takes about an hour. Just be careful of the air bag!!
