2000 Chevrolet S10 ProblemsErratic Fuel Gauge Operation
It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.
The distributor may develop internal faults. This can cause a rough running engine or stalling condition, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. Our technicians tell us that the distributor should be overhauled or replaced to correct this concern.
The headlight switch used on the Chevrolet S10 is known to fail through normal operation. Since the headlight switch is also integrated into the interior lights, a malfunctioning switch can cause issues with interior lights as well.
- Symptoms of a failed headlight switch include:
- Headlights and taillights failing to turn on or off
- Interior lights flicker, or fail to turn on or off
- Gauge cluster lighting off or flickering with headlights on
- Parking light malfunctions
This issue is well known with General Motors Trucks and SUVs, and is solved by testing and, if needed, replacing the headlight/dimmer switch. Bad grounding wires at the tail-lights, and dirty/corroded tow package wires can also lead to some of these issues.

The payload as listed on the vehicle certification label exceeds the actual limitations of the vehicle. If the weight limitations of the vehicle are exceeded, the vehicle will not operate as designed, and may cause a safety issue. Owners will be sent a revised vehicle certification label that is accurate.
The seat belt buckles may not have been properly heat-treated during the manufacturing process. This may cause the buckles not to function correctly during a collision, which may cause injury. Dealers will replace the seat belt buckles.
The Antilock brake system pump motor may have an insufficient spring clip installed, which may cause an internal bearing retention issue. This could affect pump motor operation, and may cause brake pressure differentiation issues between the front and rear brakes. Dealers will replace the brake pressure module valve assembly.
