Sounds as if you have a power shortage in the van. first establish what fuse keeps blowing this will help in narrowing down the short.once short is located check all connections ,wires,and plugs.

Engine 1 fuse powers the computer and some sensors. I had this same problem on a 98 chevy van 3500 and found the wire going to one of the oxygen sensors had shorted out on the heat shield. Inspect the wires going to all of the oxygen sensors. On this van one of the oxygen sensors on the driverside the wire was laying on the heat shield which eventually rubbed through the wire and shorted it out blowing the fuse. Your short could be on a different sensor but check all of the oxygen sensors because the wire runs so close to the sharp heat shield.

My 07 Chevy express van 3500 6.0 engine, we had the AC compressor replaced. It stopped blowing,replaced the resistor and blower motor. AC keeps blowing the 20 amp fuse under the drivers seat!

Insure that the 20 amp fuse is the correct size. Might it be shown to use a 30? Otherwise, when compressor was replaced, was drier, orifice tube replaced and proper amount of oil added?

1999 chevrolet express van keeps blowing out 40 amp fuse and wont start

sounds like you have a direct short in your starter, if you remove the starter you can take it to any Napa or auto parts store to have it bench checked, be sure and disconnect the battery cables first , and call ahead to your local parts store to see if they can do it,, Most do this for free, so check around

I have a fuse blowing constantly on my van

you are on a search and destroy mission, i recommend you buy a manual with wiring diagram, at least it will tell you what is hooked on that circuit, thenits a matter of testing wiring, i suspect you have a short somewhere

2002 chevy van 2500 when i turn key to start van

Fuses only blow if-Old,Overheated or you have a Short circuit.
That should be any easy fix,to the extent that there aren't many 40 Amp Fuses and you will need a wiring diagram to follow the problem from the fuse to the cause. If you know what fuse it is, you can guess,but I wouldn't recommend that,it will be time consuming and maybe costly ,if you don't have a test procedure to follow and throw parts at it.
Don't replace the fuse.Their expensive and will keep blowing.

Reverse and interior lights out, chevy express van

Fuse block under the hood. Driver's side, under the brake master cylinder. Number 18. TCB#2. Replace the fuse.

There is an under-engineered ground in the reverse circuit. If you back up with the dome lights on, it could blow that fuse. There should be some extra fuses under the cover of the fuse block.

My chevy express van blows the engine fuse once you try to start

you may want to check out the wiring of the starter and the ignition system if there are some open wires which may cause a short...  if the fuse that blows up if for the ECU, you may check out the main wiring that goes to the ECU if there are open wires which may cause the short.
