Radio, Key auto door lock/opener, interior lights not working.

Hi, My 2003, Chevy, Venture van has lost radio, interior lights and the ability to lock/unlock the doors using the automatic key opener all at once...is this a fuse? How do I fix this?

    It was indeed a fuse.....I found the one in question (#29) 10Amp and replaced it......It blew again as I put it in.....sparks and everything. Does this mean that I have an electrical problem? How much could this cost me? I can probably make do without the radio, auto opener and interior lights if it will be costly.....or should I just try again with another fuse? How about If I replace it with a 15Amp instead? Could this cause a fire? or ruin my radio or something?

    Thanks....

Most likely is a fuse. There is a fuse box at the end of the right side of the dash. Open front passenger door and there is a cover that says fuses on the end of dash. There is also a fuse box located under the hood at the right front of engine compartment. It should have a cover with a round knob in the middle of it .Unscrew the knob to remove cover.

2005 chevy express 3500 door light and radio stay on when you turn van off take the key out and open the door. how to fix


This Van has a system in it called delayed exit, this means the radio and other accessories stay on for a time as long as none of the doors are opened, when the door is opened the module senses that switch in the door is activated and shuts everything off. The easy way to test this is open the passenger door, if all shuts off you found the problem, the driver door switch is defective. the switch is attached to the door lock inside the door.

Sounds like you have a short to power. there are several wires that connect to your radio and console . one is the ignition wire that kills power to the radio and console when the key turns off. What has probably happened is that wire has found a constant power source from another wire and it constantly stays on. finding this short is very difficult because it is under the dash so you might want to take it to a professional. Also if the van has the feature where the radio doesnt cut off until you open the doors, then your short may be somewhere in the sensors on the doors.

When i open the driver door the radio doesnt turn off on a 2001 gmc yukon


I have a citroen berlingo van does the same thing I open the door the radio comes on with the interior light. I disconnected the light and tried it, same thing I have now noticed though that when I lock the door with the key the radio will go off after about 2 minutes. Try it and let me know if locking the door with the key works? its always puzzled me but I have left it as it still turns of.

Regards
Dan

Venture van power door problem


It sounds as though one of the proximity sensors is faulty. Also try giving the tracks for the door a good shot of white spray lithium grease. The door may be binding enough so that the emergency reverse is kicking in.
