Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture
I have had my 2000 Chevy Venture for 1 year. And I have had problems with the electrical system since I got it and complained and brought it in to be fixed 3 time in the first 30 days I had it. The dealership I purchased it from said over and over they could find no problem with it and REFUSED to help me get this fixed. GM says it isn't their problem, talk to the dealership..
The lights flicker when you put it into park or neutral. I have to push the battery all the way to the left and back to get it to start. And no, it IS NOT a connection to the battery problem as I have had that checked several times. The battery moves when I turn a corner.
I have to make sure nothing electrical is running when I go to try to start it. The battery has been replaced twice now. The dealership told me it was the electrical harness after the 8th time of bringing it in and after the warantee had run out. They say it will cost me almost $900 to fix but I am not convinced that this is the problem. Could it be the alternator or starter? Ie keep blowing fuses to the parking, turning and running lights.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am a single, low income mom with 5 children and no one to rely on to get this fixed. I don't have $900 or I would have fixed it already. I don't know what to do.
First of all your battery should be strapped down tight. no it sounds like you have a negitive to ground problem. if this van were in my shop i would install a jumper wire from the battery to the frame of the van just to see if this fixes the problem. that is where i would start. let me know how you turn out . and can advise further.
