Sounds like the system is pulling too much power! First check the charging system and battery! With the key off, your battery should be at 12 volts or better! When you start the van, check for 13 1/2 to 14 volt charge at the battery! If that checks out good, next you want to plug in an OBD2 code reader under the dash on the driver's side, and check for codes! If there are no codes, it could be the system itself having the problem!
If it continues have system checked by service station.The check charging system could be temporary until Battery is fully charged.If this caused any damage I would be suprised, we all have had battery drains from time to time.Good Luck.
It could mean the alternator has gone bad already... with the car off, the battery leads should read 11-12V.. with the car on, the battery should read 13-14V.. if it's lower then it's not charging your battery and if it's higher, it's damaging your battery....
Check battery voltage (should be at least 12v at battery and starter terminal) If 12v, check to see if you can turn the engine by hand (ign off) If you can't then it's locked up. (internal problem) Also, starter may be defective...just because its in a box, dosen't mean it's good (sad fact) Hope it's a bad unit...better than a doa engine!!! Good luck with it!
Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.
To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.
