Question about 2001 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

2001 Chev Astro Cargo Van

When I turn key nothing happends sometime. And other times it starts no problem. If I keep trying to start when nothing happens it will eventaly catch and start up. It seems to always start eventaly if I keep trying. I don`t think its the starter. I put in a new relay switch in and it still does that. This has been going on now for a few months. I checked the conections and they seem fine. What could be the problem?

The problem is your ignition switch.

the connection with the start contact is sometimes missing.

if you want to save money, you can trace the starter wire and hook up a push button wire to start your starter. the other lead of the wire goes to the ignition switch to from the " on " lead so that if you turn off your key, there is no accidental starting of your engine.

Check for power on the small purple wire at the starter with the key in the crank position. If here is no power you will need to trace that circuit to see if its the neutral safety switch, ignition switch, or wiring in between.

If nobody here provides it for you (I don't have your van's manual), then visit the chevy dealership and ask a not-too-busy shop foreman or a parts dept. person for a little assistance. A quick look in a repair manual for your van may also have it. It must have got scraped off or disappeared from under your hood, on a little sticker?
