Some of the troubleshooting clinics stress the fact that the first thing to do is check connections. Unplug and replug them as most are self cleaning. On the old pre obd Fords you did the wiggle test first when doing a scan. Basically it meant wiggling all the wires and connectors to check for a bad connection. The wiring on the S-10s seems to be a little more problematic than the bigger Chevy pickups. I have traced many electrical problems to a wad of ground wires that are connected to the bottom of the dash with a sheet metal screw. That is the first thing I check on one with any electrical relater problem.
