1991 chevy van won't crank put in a fully charged battery it started then turn it off and won't start up again why?


couple things come to mind: bad cable or starter has a dead spot. if it starts after hitting the starter with a hammer, you have a dead spot and need to replace the starter. If not, check both battery cables--the ground one that goes to the engine and the positive one that goes to the starter. Sometimes they go bad under the insulation. Could also be an intermittent ignition switch issue. A second test you can do to narrow down the possibilities is to put power directly to the starter solenoid (usually done by carefully crossing the big battery terminal on the solenoid with the small terminal where the ignition switch wire connects using a screwdriver), but make sure the tranny is in park or neutral. If the starter cranks, you know it is a problem with the ignition power not getting to the solenoid and not a bad battery cable.

1992 Chevy G20 Van wont turn over.


Some people say "it won't turn over when they mean it cranks and won't start. If you turn the key and there's no noise, turn on the headlights to see if they are bright. If so, battery is probably o.k. If it won't crank, the problem is in the ignition switch, transmission safety switch, or the firewall connections. You have to check point to point.. If it cranks and won't start, It's either spark or fuel. More info needed.

1989 Ford Econoline 150 Van will not start


Most all vehicles have main power cable to starter solenoid which is mounted on the starter where the power cable to the switch connects OR there is a separate heavy gauge red wire connected to the positive post of the battery that leads to the ignition switch. Also check your ground cable by connecting battery jumper cable to negative post on battery and other end to metal frame of van.

Turns over but won't start


I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

How do you replace an ignition switch on a 2002 chevy venture van? I have a 2002 chevy venture van and have had a problem with the starter staying engaged. I replaced the started and it fixed it...


So what it only does it in park or neutral ! The vehicle starting circuit is only suppose to let it start in park or neutal . Park neutral safety switch won't allow B+ voltage to S terminal on the starter solenoid unless the vehicle is in park or neutral . It's probably the starter relay contacts stuck closed . You really should learn how it works before guessing as to the problem . Plus learn automotive electrical testing ! The ignition switch when turned to the start position send's a voltage signal to the PCM - engine computer .The PCM will energize the starter relay to crank the engine . PCM / ABS 10amp fuse in the I/P fuse box supply's B+ voltage to the park / neutral safety switch . When in park or neutral the B+ voltage goes through the control side of the relay to the PCM which will supply a ground to energize the starter relay .

Car will not start


If the car is turning over,I would guess not,but if the starter is not turning over,then clean the cables,and the battery post,real good.If it still does the same thing,replace the starter.

Ford aerostar clicks but will not start


Could be two things. Older cars have problems with a build up of resistance in the ignition circuit this can cause the car not to start. The fix for this is a new ignition switch (the electrical part not the key part) or your battery is either going dead or is very weak. Charge the battery and see if that helps. Be aware, if your maintenance free battery is more than 5 to 7 years old, it should be replaced.

Good luck!
