You said the battery is fine. Does that mean it was fully charged? I know if the alternator is not putting out the correct amount of current, it'll drain the battery down and once battery get's below about 10 1/2 volts, it can do things like flickering guages, etc and then car will die because it doesn't have enough juice to provide spark for the plugs to fire.

Hey JH..my name is Keith...most people think its the computer..and it just could be..but my guess is the real ignition switch..and not the one you stick the key in..the one you stick a key in is refered to the ignition switch..but its not..it just a lock..and the real ignition switch is in the steering collum..but it controls all of your electrical..and is pretty in-expensive to have replaced..i hope this has helped..if not..write me back

Charging system erratic


You need to Check the Belts for Tightness and replace the Battery Cables. When you Replace the Cables, you will need to Grind the Area where the Cables attach to Make sure that they are Contacting the Area Completely. A wire Brush will work very well for this. If the Belts are worn, they will Stretch out and will not allow the Alternator to charge the Battery. If you need more Help Just let me Know! Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Lighting problem on 2000 chevy vetura


I have over 300k miles on my 2000 Venture. When the lights start flickering at low RPM's, the alternator or battery might be going bad. I would have it tested (for free) at the local AutoZone or Napa. The alternator SHOULD last 80-150,000+ miles. Its a real pain to change out on the Venture vans.

Sometimes I wonder if the van just doesn't create enough juice to run all of the accessories since even when batery and alternator are new they flicker once in a while when a component turns on.

I get zapped year round by my cars, even in high humidity. It is not harmful, but be careful at gas stations!
