Question about 1996 GMC Savana

1 Answer

My savana van alarm will not stay off when disarmed as soon as engine is off the light comes back on.

For some reason when the alarm is left on it drains the battery and the van will not start so I have been leaving it off but now it won't stay off.

    I am being told it is not an after market alarm. There are times as well when the van while driving locks will lock and unlock and the van then dies, then the alarm will sound and goes haywire..crazy.

It could be a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. Also try replacing the spark plugs and spark plug wires and having the timing checked. Good luck.

SOURCE: my 1999 gmc savana van turns over but does not

could be a bad fuel pump, or fuel pump relay. they are having problems(a lot) with the ethanol in the gas on GM products.Fuel pumps sales are through the roof at parts house on GM's. Have a pressure check on your fuel system. That is probably it. Add a can of Seafoam to your fuel every 3000 miles to alleviate this problem.

I wired my 1994 van for my camper lights so i could pull my camper. but as soon as i turn the key on.my tail lights come on and won't go off until i turn the key back off


If your van was equipped with a trailer/camper adapter or not, the left turn signal connection is LT GRN/ORG; the right turn signal connection is ORG/LT BLU; the marker lamps connection is BRN, and the stop lamp connection is LT GRN

Our headlights and tail lights are stuck on and van will not start, we were changing the stereo and the alarm beeped like it was unlocking. what could be wrong with it


Are your headlights and tail lights hooked into your alarm system (the flash when arming and disarming). You may have used a wire that was part of the alarm system. Does your alarm system kill the ignition so the van cannot be started? Could have done something to destroy the alarm system.
Might want to start by going backwards. Take the stereo out and putting any wiring back to the way it was before until things go back to normal. If that does not work then take the alarm out and repair any wires that have been cut and spliced for it.

Security system is locked out, will not let use start van


If the headlights are flashing, the alarm system is factory installed. Inserting the key into the driver door lock and turning to the left then back to the right is supposed to disarm it. If the parking lights are blinking,, the alarm is an aftermarket add on, and there should be a disarm button under the dash on the driver side. If it' an aftermarket alarm, you should be able to have it removed. There is a way to bypass the factory alarm. There is a wiring harness in the driver's door. You will have to remove the door panel to find it. The wire is dark green and purple. Splice into that wire and ground it to the chassis and the alarm should no longer work.

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

1992 ford econoline club wagon van alarm randomly activates


I have the same problem on my Chateau, Can't buy new module, probably cost a fortune anyway. Disconnect the Grey connector on the alarm control module. I left the black on on for no special reason. Your power door locks will no longer work. (I'm not sure about the horn. If it doesn't I'll do something else)
The black control module is located on side of the van about 1 foot behind the drivers seat. Remove 2 plastic push in clips and yank the panel away to gain access to the module.
