    While trying to troubleshoot a problem with the right front headlight, I reached up under the dash- just left of the steering column and found one of the wiring harness that come through the firewall-- I gently moved the bundle aside about an inch and because the turn-signal flasher was pretty loud I decided to see where it was real quick (damned hard to find - way up in there vertically behind the gauge cluster -- couldn't see it ). Anyway, flasher found- now guess what-- The friggn headlight starts working--- now we are afraid to touch the wiring bundle. Every fuse is good and there is power across each fuse so apparently the problem lies between the switch and the wires going to the rear lights . I may have to replace the headlight switch as well , or remove it and do continuity tests (ohm meter) but I don't know if this will solve the problem. Drivetrain and AC , ease of driving , handling in this Venture Extnded van are good--- but the electrical wiring problems seem to be a Plague with these lower-line GM vehicles as well as some of the more expensive GM stuff (example- my ( '95 suburban LT with fuse block, powerwindow wiring, and rear AC controls wiring issues ). I've noticed a quality problem with Most of the electrical switches in the car including the rear windshield washer / wiper switches which I actual took apart and reassembled (works perfectly now ) . They look to be of cheesy quality (meaning I would Not install them on a yugo much leass a GM product) but I guess thats a Quality issue huh? I may install a standard headlight switch without the autofunctions and re-wire to the rear and to the headlights if I have to (have done it before but what a colossal pain in the rear to get what should be critical basic wired parts (headlights and taillights ) to work.

The circuit boards are a very common problem on these vans, moisture gets in them and creates a bad connection, check if you have power in the rear light socket and go from there, you often need to replace the circuit board in the rear light.

No tail lights and only middle and passenger brake light works on my 2001 chevy venture

The tail light assembly on this vehicle is a poor fit and moisture softer invades the bulb assembly when it rains. Remove the tail light assembly and replace any bulbs that have shorted out. You may need to replace the assembly.

Why backup lights blowing fuse every time the van is put in reverse.2000 chevy venture

Most likely the lead to the reverse lights has been worn through and is grounded out.

Remove both of your tail lights, Locate the wire for your reverse light and see if you can track it back very far to see if you can see the wire worn through anywhere. There is also a possibility that it could be worn and/or shorting near your reverse sensor switch (near your automatic transmission shifter stick)

also make sure your reverse lights are good and not filled with water or anything else either.

99 Chevy Venture dash board lights and tail lights

So are the fuses getting power, they should be labeled. like tail or ctsy, or inst? The dash lights are usually 5 amps. You will need to get a wiring diagram to ck it out. but you may need to start by looking at the headlamp switch. I cant believe any GM dealer could not help you. Forget anyone from a auto parts store being any help. I can ck tomorrow when at work for a diagram.
