I have a 2000 chevy S-10 pick up, 2 wheel drive, 2.2L motor and standard transmition. What I thought was the fuel pump failing back in march, I remember that day, cause I was just settling up with my moving crew in portland maine and when I took off from a red light, it stumbled a little, then I came to another stupid traffic light and the truck stalled. I tried starting the truck until the battery went dead. My dad had AAA tow it to my home. While it sat in my driveway, some **** ran into the back corner of the truck on the driver side. I then replaced the fuel pump and filter, and the truck ran but real sluggish with the check engien light on the whole time. I drove the truck From maine to Yarmouth Massachusetts twice, the sluggishness and dimming of the headlights. I washed the truck a couple nights after at the hands on car wash, and the lights got real dim, so I jumped in the cab and stepped on the gas, and it popped out of it. Then 2 days later the truck would just stumble when you tried to start it. Then soon after would not stumble at all and just turned over. I replaced the fuel pump again thinking I got a bunk pump, still nothing. I even tried pouring gas into the throttle body and not even a stumble. I then got smart and bought a code reader, The code reader doesnt even come on when pluged into the OBD system, like there's no power at all. What is going on with this truck, The code reader works cause I plugged it into our other vehicles. Can someone please help me!

First thing you need to do is to put an engine scan on the truck. You need thekey to the on position in order for it to work. Then charge your battery and have it checked because if it's screwed up your truck running will be as well. Make sure all your terminals are clean. That would be a start. If you still don' get any codes check your cam and crank sensor for ohms because they will have high ohms an dnot set a code so when it gets warmed up they don't work right.

From what i'm gatheringis that the truck won't turn over. There is a 175 amp fuse on the right side of the radiator. Check to see if that is good or not. There is also a starter relay in the underhood electrical center. There is a fusible link that runs off the alternator and that can be bad but idoubt it. Check all those, you should only need a test light for it.

Try resetting your pass lock (security system) it should tell you in your owner's manual how to do it. I can't send that to you as I don't have it available here. Also have you replaced th fuel pump relay? And check the ecm fuses in the underhood electrical center. Also check the ignition fuse it's a 40 amp fuse in the center as well. If any of these are blown your truck will not start. If this does't do it i'd suggest taking it to apro.
