problems with head lights not coming on shorting out head lamp conectors. sometimes they work other times the dont. help please

My 2003 S10 Extended Cab is the perfect vehicle for me. It's a pleasure to drive. While I have had the oil pan gasket replaced twice (the last time they replaced the oil pan as well) it was at GM's expense. I'm currently dealing with a crackd flywheel. Even considering all that, I wouldn't trade it for anything with 4 wheels. Great ride, good gas mileage, quick response to the gas, easy parkability. Sweet.

Both my father and I have S10s (mine an '03 and his an '88), some of the best and most reliable vehicles around.

Great little truck, 4.3 l engine is decent on gas and has good power.
suspension is good except for the ball joints wearing out. Gm should have used better intake gaskets. antilock brakes not working due to wheel bearings going out. all these are common problems i have read about on other forums.
