You may need new brushes internally on your alternator. It could be grounding out and preventing the unit from charging. As for the other gauges check all the fuses under the desh and under the hood is you have them. Make sure all conections are tight to the starter and the battery. Make sure all wires are strong and sturdy.

No power from alternator?


You went wrong in the way of changing out one alternator for a bigger amperage one . It could have done ireparable damage . Do you have a manual for it ,,.It could be a blade fuse burned out they are like a flat piece of metal held in wth 2 nuts and washers .Check all your fuses in the fuse box first .

95 Chevy lumina van, heat on won't turn off. A/c


Hi wodermom26,

Your Lumina APV is a clone of the Pontiac Transport and Oldsmobile APV's which all have identical Heater & A/C controls. The Heater & A/C controls usually wear out mechanically causing no control of temperature. This is a difficult repair and is best made by a dealers ASE Certified Technician. A/C may require re-charging and or possible replacement of the hoses which carry the refrigerant as they become porous and leak. Additionally, the Compressor and its Clutch may possibly require replacement.

The High beams are controlled by pushing the Turn Signal switch forward toward the Instrument panel and have a momentary "Flash to Pass" function by pulling the Turn Signal Lever upward toward the steering wheel and return to Low Beam upon release of the turn signal Lever. If neither function of the Beam selector lights the High Beams it is pssible that the Headlamp bulbs are burned out or open connections in the wiring harnesses. Do you have an owners manual for your Lumina? If so it has information regarding the Multi-Functions of the Turn Signal Lever.

1994 Chevi Lumina APV (van)


If you havent replaced the battery I would start there. If the battery has a dead cell in it then it will effectively remove the charge that your alternator is putting out causing your vehicle to stop running because it has no power. I would jump start the car without the battery hook up and remove the cables and see if it runs that way. If it does you have a bad battery.

The gas gauge to my 99 lumina doesnt work, the coolant light is on aswell


these are 2 seperate problems, the gas gauge is the gauge sending unit inside the fuel tank, replace it, the coolant light is caused by the coolant level sensor in the side of the radiator, remove it and clean it, if it still indicates low coolant replace it.

Radiator Cooling fans pull or push air (93 Chevy Lumina 3.1 L) ?


A radiator fan is designed to pull air to pull air through the radiator to help cool it, while blowing the air on back across the engine to try to assist once again at keeping the unit running cool as to not over heat.

Radiator 93 lumina apv


Drain the system. Remove the upper radiator cover and the dual cooling fans (4 bolts and an electrical connector). Disconnect the transmission cooler lines and the upper and lower hoses.. The radiator should freely pull straight up and out. Reverse the process to install the new radiator.
