I have a 1988 Chevy blazer s10... The windows do
not roll down, the windshield wipers do not work,
the doors are unable to lock. I want to fix it myself
to learn (and I'm broke).. Any suggestions on
where I can go to replace these things myself??? I
couldn't find anything on the internet for an '88....
First thing I would check are the fuses. Sounds like a electrical, wiring problem. If you want to learn how to work on the truck yourself, find a friend who works on cars and have them help you. Maybe even hang out at a local garage to gain some experience. You might not be able to find '88 specific info, but something close to that model year should help you.
Step 1. buy a decent multimeter $50 is Ok. you can learn at good rate of speed, better that almost anything else! than having a top electronics tech teach (and they can't cause there earning $100,000+) walk you through a circuit check process. Youtube in 2016 is now one of the best learning tools available, as good if not better than many Tech schools.... I have visited! Really, The fact is YOU can learn as much as YOU want as fast as YOU want by just doing, reading and watching Youtube! and practicing...Read, about the Engineering of window circuits, switches, wiring, motors and schematics...If you really do / did this in 6 months time you will know as much if not more than 95% of what "shops" know on electrical.
