Jun 17, 2014 Testing is the way to a fix. Acts like a dead battery, but had a new battery put in 2 years ago. If you have power at 30 and jump the relay socket and the pump still wont come on. . I did not notice outside temperature causing the problem more frequently. We tried using the remote keyless entry, both of the interior buttons and pulling the handle on both the inside and outside of the door. We are planning a trip in 27 days and really don't want to take a vehicle that starts when it feels like it.
I had a very similar issue with a 98 Montana. Your prompt response will be appreciate. In my case, using a fine dental pick I was able to get behind the bent section and bend them out slightly, providing better contact. I really don't want to second guess the techs due to so much missing info. The van intermittently would hesitate as if it was starved for fuel, then either resume, or die. . I never stalled or had to restart the van it just came back on its own.
I thank god my kids weren't in the back seat at the time this happen. This caused the car to feel like it was not going to stop. I have called the dealer and a mechanic I trust and they told me that this is not a known problem. When it did turn over and you gave it gas it would backfire under the hood and sputter, but would start. It took my entire weight to push the door back off of him. I had the fuel pressure checked and its wierd. Does anyone have any other suggestions or help.
When you first start the car, the computer turns on the fuel pump for about 20 seconds just enough time to start and allow the oil pressure sending unit to close the circuit to allow it to continue running. If you are braking at the time of the malfunction, it is very difficult to stop, which could result in an accident. It won't start when it's cold outside, below about 40 degrees. I am keeping my fingures crossed at this time to see how long it lasts. The failure mileage was 135,000. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.
Im really thinking about selling it Hi Again and thank you, we did replace the fuel pump along with the computer and a few other things I am not sure of. I am not an expert on this vehicle, but I have enougth technical backgroung to understand that the anti lock system takes over the braking system adjusting fluid pressure to prevent the tires from locking up. I can't tell you how many times the doors open and won't shut, the problem started last yr while on vac. Gm has been notifyed and can not respond for 6 days. Would the Heater Core cause this? He had to pull over, turn off the vehicle, open and close the door and lock it in order to keep it closed.
Acts like a dead battery, but had a new battery put in 2 years ago. A local mechanic replaced the cam sensor and ignition module and told me to come get it, then called 5 minutes later and said it was doing the same thing don't come. The current and failure mileages were 95,368. Checked the wires under the drivers seat as well, all looks well. As soon as the rain has gone and the van dries the door works fine. When she turns the key to the on position, all the lights light up.
Now the problem has come back. He then replaced the ecu with another used one flash matched to the van. After the 10 seconds the temp Guage dropped back down to normal range and wham I got my power back and was able to accelerate. I heard the fuel pump kick in and the headlights came back on. How long does it take for the fuse to blow? Checked battery, as well as all grounds, still same problem. The contacts in the plug as you look at the end. Viewing engine sensor data on a scan tool.
As he climbed in, door released and closed on his head causing bump on back of head and cuts and moderate swelling on face. What I mean is that battery voltage maybe dropping down to 7 or 8 volts and staying there, during cranking. None of these things work. Wiring harnesses have been repaired and the problem remains. This failure occurred on several occasions before it would close. The consumer does not have the recall number or campaign id number. This could also be why the Tech sees high amperage draw on the pump; low voltage will make an electrical motor draw more amps.
I hope that there is someone who knows how to fix the problem because there is no warning when it is going to happen. Anyway since problem did not stop changed throttle body and coil pack and right after there was no more hesitation but I woke up the day after we changed those things and the van will not start at all now, it trys to turn over but then I just get a hum that fades out. To check the fuel pump. The design is suppose to allow the door to retract if there is something blocking the door from shutting. The contact stated that the passenger sliding door would open involuntarily. How can I get it fixed and will it be at my cost.
If the van is overheating, you should troubleshoot the cooling system to locate the source of the leak or malfunction and repair it immediately to avoid damage to the vehicle and to avoid costly repairs. Then the temp guage went back up and both lights came on and off but still no overheating smoke. Well at this time I have made sure the contacts to the battery are good and cleaned even the ground cable to the firewall. Check the radiator cap by removing it while the Venture is cool and observe it closely for rips, tears or bubbles, which may diminish a tight seal and allow steam or coolant to escape from the radiator. The vehicle has been taken to the dealership for repairs four to five times. During the time the hub assembly was changed, I got an uncomfortable feeling that I was not being given the reason for the abs problem in a straight forward way.
