Question about Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

Loose coil around battery

I lifted the fuse relay box on 1999 Chevry Venture to fill the battery with water. Coil is disconnected. The only place where it might connect is inside a larger coil but an adapter would be needed to connect the two.

The coil was a vacuum line. I'm not sure how long it had been disconnected. We took the extension off and connector both parts with the elbow adaptor.

Relay fuse for park lamps on 2004 Buick Rendevous. Where is it located?

Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned on when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LPS fuse in the underhood fuse block, supplies battery positive voltage to both the park lamp relay switch contacts and park lamp relay coil circuit. The park lamp relay coil is controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the BCM will then energize the park lamp relay coil control circuit. Current flow is now from the park lamp relay to the park/tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G100 and G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G401 and G402. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G401. The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lights from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left on. If the park lights are turned on after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain on until turned off or the battery runs dead.

The Fuel Pump relay fuse is either shorting out or becoming too hot that it is pushed out of the socket, causing the car to shut down. What's causing this

If the relay had been loose in the fuse box that can cause the melting. i've seen fuse panels where the conectors are actualy loose in the box so as you push relay in it is actualy forcing the connector out the bottom of the box. use a small screwdriver to push down gently on each connector in the fuse box to see if this is whats happening. relay are plentiful at the local wrecking yard or buy new. the either work, dont work os sometimes stick on. this will cause battery drain overnight . if the connector is loose in the box you'll have to lift the whole fuse box to try to push it back in. if it wont stay in the fuse box may have melted and will need replacing unless u can handle moving all the wires to another relay spot if the box will allow it

Have 1999 honda civic ex w/ v-tech motor we have replace computer,main relay, distubor,coil, and fuses still will not fire

have you check the plug at the right strut tower? the plug comes loose and it causes the car not to start. one thing to do is check for power and ground pulse at the coil. also check the ignitor in the distributor to make sure it is sending signal to the coil.

1999 ford zx2 5 speed manual. Put a new battery in and it starters crankin but not tutrning over? I replaced the coil and wires, replaced the crankshaft sensor, timing belt is newer and so is the water...

On the negative battery terminal there is a black box with several small wires going to it. This has the relay grounds for several relays, including the PCM and fuel pump relay. If this box is not perfectly grounded, you won't get power to the PCM. I think this will be your issue since this happened after you replaced the battery, so you would have needed to remove that cable. It goes between the bolt and terminal end, make sure it is clean between there. Otherwise, you are going to have a bad PCM fuse or a bad PCM.

I think the coil went on my 2000 dodge caravan. How do I test for that?

disconnect one of the plug wires from coil,install a inline tester and check for fire. if that test is ok then use the same tester to check the coil wires to the plugs. check inthe fuse panel to see if you have a blown fuse or relay first. if the coil is bad then before u try to remove it disconnect the battery.

1999 dodge grand caravan has lost all spark

Did you Check for Power (Voltage) before the Electronic Ignition Coil?
There is an electrical connection plugged-in and is located to the rear of the Ignition Coil. Slide the clasp lock (colored red) out and push of the clasp release and pull off the connection. Check for Voltage. If there is Voltage at this electrical connection but no spark after the Coil then the Coil needs to be replaced. However if there is no Voltage at this connection, then check the Automatic Shutdown Relay located in the IPM Fuse and Relay Box located on the left side (your right side) of the engine compartment.. Remove the Cover. The identification and location of the Fuses and Relays should be on the back (inside) o fthe Cover. You should have a Spare Relay in that Box. Switch out the Spare and the Automatic Relays. If no Spare then use a Relay from a non-engine operation Relay that is the same Type (size and shape) replug-in the electrical connection at the Coil and check operation. Unplug the Coil connection and again check for voltage.
There are also numerous Sensors that come into play dealing with the engine operation. However one Sensor will prohibit any spark from being sent to the Coil. If the Crankshaft Position Sensor is faulty or not sending information to the computer it will, there will be no voltage sent to the Coil. The Crankshaft Position Sensor is located on the rear of the engine, next to and on top of the the area of the transmission bell housing. Remove the Battery and Battery Tray to gain access. There should be a cluster of wires going on top of the transmission and going towards the rear of the vehicle. There should be two (2) wires coming out of that wire cluster, going to the left (your left) toward the engine block in the area of the transmission bell housing. The Crankshaft Position Sensor is bolted onto the engine with a 10mm bolt. Unplug the Sensor (using the above technique). Reconnest the Battery (no need to put in tray). Crank the engine and check for voltage coming out of the Sensor (not the connection) It should be around 5 volts. If NO Volts are received: remove the bolt, and pull the Sensor straight out. There should be a paper spacer on the new Sensor. Leave this paper spacer on there.
This should get you started or even (possibly) fixed.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to conatct me at!

no sir
not from the switch to the coil.
the coil does not get power from the switch.
the switch turns relays on that powers the coils.
