S10 turns over but no start

I was just recently plugging a 7pin to a 4pin wiring adapter into the back of my s10 while it was running and then all of a sudden the truck shut down. I went back into the cab and tried to start it and it would crank but not start. I immediately noticed that when turned my key to the on posistion there was no "ding" noise that usally goes off when I have the door open and the key in at the same time. Also none of the gauges were working and no lights were on in the dash. And when I turned the key there was no sound coming from the fuel pump priming. Ive replaced the three relays in the glovebox and now im still stumped. Could plugging in the adapter have fried my fuel pump or somthing else?

Im not sure how plugging in the adapter could cause any problems but it sounds like you blew the fuse for the instrument cluster. I would check that fuse first. If that fuse is blown it would cause all the same symptoms you described.

What year S10?
Check the ground on the drivers side rear of the frame rail, infront of the bumper brackets. If the ground is not hooked up or broke fuel pump will not work, I believe it is also tied into the tail light harness.

Yep start by unpluging the trailer harness,see if you find a broken ground wire.check for power to the fuel pump with a test light.I would guess the prob is in the wireing,it would be very coincidental if something else failed,at the same time.
