Why would a 1988 S-10 Blazer voltage drop and the windshield wipers operate when the lights are turned on?

Your alternator might be going out. Take it to a parts store to have it tested for free.

Well you have to define how low the voltage is. On alot of chevys the power for everything is ran right into the fuse box & the wiring is'NT always perfict, which means there is a big load coming from the same line as the Dash & your voltage gauge. Which in turn makes the voltage read lower right at the dash then it actually is at your battery.

But never the less it does't hurt to get the alternator checked & to make sure your battery terminals are in good shape as well.

First, your headlight switch must be in the "ON" position, even if your lights stay on all the time. If your switch is "ON" you simply pull the controller to engage your windshield washers. The Headlight washers operate when the windshield washers operate. Get someone to watch them as you wash your windshield or you can shine your lights onto a wall and see the shadows as they operate.

Some LED lights are manufactured to run on low-voltage, usually 12 v, while others are manufactured to run on the local supply voltage, usually 110/120 v or 230/240 v.

The Blazer has a two possible systems One: DRL Daytime running lights Lights that stay on during the day at a lower voltage level and Two: Twilight sentinel Headlight come on when day turns to dusk You cant shut either system off without losing something else, like interior lights, dash lights or brake lights Pull fuse 15 on the fuse block on the dashboard

The lights on the odometer on a 1999 Chevy Blazer might not work because of a burned out fuse. They might also not work if the lights are burned out.
