    Thanks but I found the problem. It was a was a disconnected wire from the steering column. That also blew out the fusible link going to the starter.

What does the van do when you try to start it? Does it try to turn over or does nothing happen when you turn the key?

Is there anything else that controls the fuel on a 1999 chevy astro van


You removed the relay and put back in, and it can start? It could be a relay going bad or a wiring terminal connection where the relay plugs in. I would try a new relay and see if problem goes away. Clean the terminals with an electronic cleaner spray, where the relay plugs in.

1997 chevy k1500 won,t start cold starting fluid will start truck


I would check the fuel pump relay first. You should have some fuel pressure in the lines when you turn the key on. The relay is powered for 3 seconds to boost pressure until the engine starts.
The relay may not be working or the check valve in the pump may be letting fuel back into the tank which would cause the pressure to drop to zero when the engine is off. You should have at least 15psi with a TBI system and 35psi with MFI.

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.

Check out the Starter Relay and Fuel Pump Relay in the Fuse Box under the Hood. If they are good you might Try Installing a New Fuel Pump and Filter.
