I have traced back to the connector right behind the wheel well and the frame on the drivers side. how can I see if when i turn on the driving lights the power is coming TO the connector? If i have power to the connector and the lights dont come on then I know it is after the connector and in the tail light wiring. tools=Multimeter

    There are several wiring diagrams for a 1983 S10/T10/ or Blazer each are a little different, but you need to trace a wiring diagram specific to your Chevy.
    Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
