    CHECK THE CODES AND HAVE THE FUEL PRESSURE TESTED IF U ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THE VAN GETTING FIXED. GUESSING IS NOT AN OPTION WITH MODERN CARS AND TRUCKS, TO EXPENSIVE TO FIX THAT WAY.

Hello rollinsal198...Check the ignition coil. From past experince, i have found that on the 97-99 astros, the coil would develop a small-crack in the case. When attempting to start, a spark from the coil would short to the coil frame. A new coil will run ya about 70 buxs and you will notice the replacement coil is 're-designed' to correct this problem... Check fuel pressure, can you hear the fuel pump "humm" when you turn the key on? Have you replaced your fuel filter lately?
Good Luck...i hope this helps

Check your inline fuel filter to see if it is clogged up. Replacing this filter may allow sufficent fuel to flow to start the engine.

1998 chevy astro van ecm II fuse(20amp)burn out continually


The first thing you should do is to locate the oil pressure switch/sending unit.


This switch serves two functions.

1) provide oil pressure reading

2) disable the fuel pump relay in event of oil pressure loss.

===

When this switch is failing to provide the correct pressure to the ECU. The wiring harness can overheat and eventually create a short.

ECM2 fuse blow is because the harness is grounding/shorting.

===

DO NOT drive the truck until you change the oil pressure switch.

After you change the switch,you should spend sometime to inspect the wiring between the fuel pump relay,ECU and fuel pump.


Please post up day on the comment window/page.

I will follow up on it later.


Good luck.
