SOURCE: 1995 Astro Van electric windows no power Is there

The problem will either be a faulty master window switch on the driver door, or a broken wire at the master window switch, or most likely the problem will be a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and most likely it will be inside of the weather boot for the driver side door. If there is power going through the master window switch then look for a broken wire.

Here are two typical GM power window wiring diagrams to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Why does my 2000 astro van with a new alternator run oft my battery


that would be correct
an alternator requires a battery voltage to energize the fields to generate a current a dead flat battery or no battery and the alternator will not charge
it probably would keep running if the rpms were high enough for the voltage regulator to supply the voltage
be aware that it is a very good way to ruin an alternator and regulator to take off a battery lead while it is running

Avoid a dead battery


If your battery is discharging while the van is parked up, there's 3 general causes:
  • The battery itself is failing and cannot hold a charge. replacement is the only option.
  • There is a fault within the alternator - either the alternator is not charging or it is allowing the battery to drain because the diodes (the rectifier in the alternator) have failed.
  • There's a parasitic drain of power somewhere. Something is remaining 'live' when the van is parked up - and draining the battery.
Many places will do a free battery check.

My van looses battery charge. Just put a new alternator, and a new battery in, and now the alternator is not charging the battery . What could the problem be?


Before the alternator was replaced it was important that the charging current was measured with an ammeter to confirm charging.It is possible that the rectifier/regulator to the alternator is faulty.This electronic control unit determines the charging current.Please check this unit in your car for failure.Check this link for tips.

I have a 1997 gmc safari van 6cyl. and it has a new battery a new starter and a new altenator bt still will not hold a charge in the battery.


If you have no shorts that are draining the battery you may have gotten a defective alternator. Cheap rebuilt or remanufactured alternators from Mexico are common. I have bought 2 that failed to function right from the parts store. Poor quaility control at the plant. Ask them to check it a Autozone or Advance auto . They do this at no charge. Because of the difficulty and lack of space to work in the cramped quarters of a van. have the parts checked before you pay for it. It stinks when you have to do this once on a van anything more is infuriating. It best to have it tested before you accept the part, and only takes a minute when it is out of the vehicle. Good luck with your van. I will never buy another without having it tested before I leave the store. ever.

Check that connections are clean and check battery voltage with a meter...If battery has less than 12v in it, likely you have a bad alternator.
