1999 gmc safari van wipers wont work

check fuse, then run a ground wire to the wiper motor and ensure the ground is good. if the wipers start to work then the motor just needs a permanent ground connected to it. if it doesn`t work then check for power at the motor if you have power then tap the motor with a hammer to see if it starts if so then the motor is bad.

I have a 1999 GMC Safari that has an intermitent starting problem in the morning. The motor will turn over and start right away and other times it sounds like it wants to star and does not start. Once it...

It should have a port for a diagnostic scanner under the dash on the driver side. Use a spare spark plug, plug it in a spark plug wire, and let it sit on bare metal of the car. have someone else try to start it and see if it gets any spark. If you get spark, then you have a fuel problem. As for what type of shop, i would say any one that won't rip you off. Try to find the problem first, even if you don't fix it yourself. Last time i went to a shop, they told my motor was shot, i took the truck home, diagnosed it myself, and had it fixed in 5 min and 2 $50 injectors; had 2 injectors replaced at a shop before, cost $600.

After it rains my van doesn't want to start

it could possibly be defection ignition coil or ignition wires arching when the weather is damp outside. Remove the doghose and while the engine is running, spray the ignition wires and coils and see if you can hear or see the arching wires.

2000 GMC Safari AWD Suddenly won't start

I have a 2002 Safari with around 220k miles. I went out of town for several days and when I came back it would not start. I eventually got it started after about an hour. This happened again when I did not driver it for a week. This time I could not start the van. The fuel pump was spinning and it was getting gas. I took off the engine couling inside the van and inspected the rotor and cap. They were completely corroded. I put in an after market set for less than 30 bucks and the van started right up. I plan on getting the wires and plugs replaced but I don't think I want to do that myself due to tight access. Good luck.
