Will a van start without the steering column locked?


Do you mean it won't crank at all, or cranks but does not start. If the first, turn on headlamps and try to start. Do headlights dim? If not, you may have bad battery connections, bad solenoid, bad neutral safety switch. If lights dim, bad battery, connections, solenoid or starter motor.

99 silhouette.all bulbs are in working order.right (not left) signal flashes fast when headlights are on and even worse when brakes depressed(lights on or off).also lights on both rears are real strange on...


I had similar symptoms - rapid flashing of directional when headlights on and brake depressed when making a left turn, both directional indicators in dash light dimly when brake depressed, "Check Traction Control System" indicator On even with ATC turned Off and "strange" indications in tail lights.

Check the pins in the connector at the Lamp Holder Assembly for your Rt. Tail Light for arcing and corrosion. (The female pin is in the vehicle harness connector and the male is part of the Lamp Holder Assembly.) If found, because the male connector is part of the Lamp Holder Assembly, you'll have to replace the Lamp Holder Assembly and the harness section coming in from the vehicle containing the female connector.

I just repaired this problem in the left tail light on my '01 van with a part from a '99 van I found at a local salvage yard.

98 voyage died entering highway rev to high gear 30s then just di


my suspect would be the alternator at this point. an alternator can cause sudden stall out while driving. did the lights(headlight/dash light) dim out when you stalled? do they dim when you try to start it. the belts and fan is intact? i dont think it will show a code if its not getting any juice from alternator. it also could be ignition switch but i need this info first.
let me know

Lights dim while driving


Have your charging system checked. I had a similar problem with a chrysler van - the lights would brighten and then dim periodically. it turned out to be the battery.
