I have a 1998 Chevy S10 2.2 5 speed. I drove it the other day, came home, shut it off, then went out later to go to store and it wouldn't start or click. I jumpstarted it and I checked all fuses and relays and they're fine. Now when I turn the key when starting, the mileage doesn't show, the headlights don't come on, and when I jumpstart the car I hit the windshield wiper sprayer and the truck dies. Please help.
My car has 130000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
