Sorry to tell you an open circuit will not drain your battery as no voltage flows through it. usually this kind of problem would be more related to corrosion not letting it charge correctly or a bad alternator that is not putting out enough voltage to charge it as you drive.

Chevy van g20 year 1994 the battery dies has new battery


When does the battery die , over night , while driving the van ? Is the battery light lit on the dash when the van is running ? I'm just trying to find out when it dies . You could have one of two different problems , a charging problem ,which would more then likely be an alternator problem or if it dies overnight you would have a parasitic draw on the system draining the battery .!

My battery in my 1994 Safari Van keeps draining after being charged. What could be the cause of this? It's a brand new battery.


Either a shorting wire off a wiring loom somewhere in the electrics or a boot light or internal light not switching off.did you recently fit a new item to the vehicle as this could be part of the problem.

Replace starter in 1994 gmc safari van


  1. dissconnect the negitive battery terminal.
  2. raise van and support with stands.
  3. remove the two bolts on the starter and pull it out and down,
  4. the starter dropped as far as it will go this way you have room to remove the wires from the starter.
  5. reverse directions to install new one, NOTE; if more room is needed you will have to remove the metal flywheel cover, hope this is helpful.

How do I drain the engine coolant from a 1998 GMC Safari?


I just remove the lower radiator hose for the fastest drain, but there is a drain valve on the back of the side tank of the radiator (drivers side) that u can only access from under the van

Alternator? Van has been draining batteries and now wont start


Jump start your van, with a volt meter check voltage at battery with engine running and jumper cable disconnected, you will be checking alternator out put voltage there, should have a reading of not less then 13.5 volt's, if less replace alternator, alternator is not hard to replace. two or three bolts is all that holds it in place, don't forget to disconnect battery before removing alternator.

Battery drains in 1994 safari van


It is not the fusible link, if that was the problem it would not start at all. There is an open circut some where that is draining the power. Start disconnecting non esential devices, radios, TVs that sort of thing until you trace it down. And if you have an alarm on it check that first.

1994 GMC Safari Oil leaked out for no reason. Put more oil in...look under van and oil is leaking like a water fall. Turn Van off oil leak calms to a trickle. Other than the oil water fall the van runs...


Check the oil filter adaptor bracket. My 1993 Safari had the same problem, and the adaptor bracket and seal were bad. Replacement fixed the leak.
