Abs and no horn mean that Your Clockspring is broken . You need to pull steering wheel and carefully remove airbag, to get to item. The key cylinder can be changed very easy, key in turn to unlock but dont start car. the a thin screwdriver is put in hole under cylinder, whole thing slides out. Replace with a new one. It clicks in place turn key off. Remove key and you should be good. If it is the cylinder you are golden ; ) they do go bad. Change battery every 3 years alot of electronic stuff, PCM and BCM. the brains of the car. good luck!!

Sounds like the GEM is bad. This is a computer module behind the radio that controls all those things.

SOURCE: brake and ABS warning lights on, trac off on.

You may have a bad abs controller. You need to get the code for the abs light from a shop or auto parts store.

SOURCE: mini van wont start

It does sound like the battery. other items will work on a low battery but as kenh said there isn't enough amps to power the starter... it needs alot to turn over the motor. before you replace the battery you should test that the alternator is working properly. there is a simple test for it but i'm told as a safety issue that it's best left to a mechanic.

My guess would be a switch (park interlock, brake interlock, etc.), a main fuse (located under the hood), or a starter solenoid. One easy check is to turn the key to start and simultaneously wiggle the shifter or pull it in to the Neutral position.

Good luck.

Van wont start, battery is ok,lights come on ok.then you try to crank it over and everything goes dead? no lights no dash or dome lights all black. wait a few minutes lights come back on then turn key all...


The problem is a loose connection at your battery or the distribution block. This is normally the ground wire. Try tightening these connections and you should not have a problem. Or wiggle the wires.

Sounds like starter selanoid, but first make sure battery connections are clean and tight, if sure they are then turn on headlights and try to start if still clicks and lights dim its starter.
