I have a 2004 gmc savana cargo van that every so often decides that it does not want to send power to the starter when i turn the key.If i wait one or two hours it will normally start right away.this...


Check your ignition key, if its excessively worn , have a new one cut and see if the problem persists. If ignition tumblers are not set correctly it wont start, even if it does turn the lock cylinder.

Usually means the sensor in the lock cylinder or the chip in your key has failed.
Have you tried another key ?

Dash lights went out in gmc savana 1997


one of the lights may have went out and they may have been on a single circut light sting. like on a chrismas tree. you may need to fix one light and they might turn all on. you also can go to your macanic and have they check it out and tell you.

No daytime running light no interior dash light


I am betting there are no tail lights as well , as they are on the same circuit as the cluster lights.

Change the fuse.
Note ; it could also be a broken filement in one of the light bulbs in this circuit causing a dirrect short , should the fuse blow right away after you've changed it.

When driving the olds Intrigue and the engine will suddenly sputter and die. Dash lights come on and won't go off until I restart it. Restarting engine and it sputters like it is flooded, then it starts....


It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many.
Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will
do this more and more often until it won't start anymore. VATS, PASSkey and Passlock immobilizer systems are
killing cars all over North America, they have a short lifespan and are certainly more effective against owners
than thieves. Here is how you save your car
1st trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like
that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this
in my regal for more than a year. If its shutting down while running, im sorry i have no quick fix... If anything
on this page helps you, please remember to comment or give me a thumbs up on the myfixya sight so i can have a
better rating to help more people on this. Thanks

Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective. Until the TDM (theft deterrent module) in the
dash poops out, then you're kinda screwed. I was told that these types of key security systems have a 7-10 year
life span. Sucks for us. This link explains the "Key Issue" pretty well.
----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/


Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it
out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did
to fix the problem. They sell a unit for 200 bucks to totally bypass this system FOREVER. life time-money back and
all that. Finally did this in my car. Well worth the 200 if you've looked into getting this replaced... Anywhere
from 600-1000 bucks. If you do buy this, please purchase it thru this link. The cost is the same, but i get credit
for the sale and im trying to earn my money back, as you will be able to do if you buy fron NewRockies and join the
free affiliate program. Thanks

----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey system out of your car all together. Good info
on both sites.

It works for:
Any GM or Isuzu Vehicle with VATS or PASSKey or PASSLock security systems.
If your car has the chip in the key or in the lock cylinder, then you can save it with this Full Bypass.

Someone attempted to steal my 1998 Savana Conversion van, I had the steering column replaced and now it still won't stay started, and a security light is on the dash board. Is there a fuel pump reset...


Hi, the security system has to learn the new key resistor in the new column. If you try to start it, leave the key on for 10 mins, the security light will go off. Turn the key off, try to start it again, and release the key. The light will come back on again. Wait another 10 mins, intill the light goes out again. (leaving the key on). This has to be done 3 times total of 30 mins. When the light goes out a 3rd time, the vehicle should start, and run. Remember to turn off the headlamps, heater, radio, etc... as they consume power, and you do not want to kill the battery. Good luck...Coop
