Question about 1999 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

Turning left makes a cracking noise, also lights flicker

We went to our local auto zone and they told us of this new recall on 99 ventures involving if your lights are flickering, inside and out that the alternator was remade because the bolt it was made with is to long so we need to go to a chevy dealer to get the parts to fix it. all that is in the kit is a bolt and a washer. the original bolt was to long and it needed a washer.
Also i have this really annoying sound coming from around the left tire. it sounds like something is grinding or metal on metal contact. our local midas put all 4 brand new tires on it started after they put them on, never before that though. any ideas about the noise?

Should I flush transmission fluid and replace filter on 2002 Chevrolet Venture Van (has 46,600 miles).

For 46,000 mile Just do the serpentine belt and a oil change, as for the transmission fluid,leave it alone unless the pan gasket is leaking as for the brake fluid leave that alone,Dealers and shops do always try to sell thats there way of life,also always make sure all the fluid and air in the tire are filled and you will be good to go.

99 Chevy Venture dash board lights and tail lights

So are the fuses getting power, they should be labeled. like tail or ctsy, or inst? The dash lights are usually 5 amps. You will need to get a wiring diagram to ck it out. but you may need to start by looking at the headlamp switch. I cant believe any GM dealer could not help you. Forget anyone from a auto parts store being any help. I can ck tomorrow when at work for a diagram.

Check engine light

I looked up the task...they make it sound like a HUGE chore....but this is what it looks like and it runs for about $50-60 for it.

Headlight and dash light flicker

this is true ! Usually the strap will run from either the ground post or sometimes the the top mount bolt , to the body . Look at the ground straps that run from the engine to the frame and engine to body . Chances ar one of these straps are broke . They are located from the bottom behind the engine near the firewall , and on the passenger side of the engine underneath . I had a 2004 venture that the interior and display lights went out , a control module in the dash that ran the display , daylights , and cooling fan went out ! traded it in soon after !!! Good advice !

ABS light comes on

Per your description, I would suspect you have a faulty wheel speed sensor. Take you vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto and have the codes pulled for free. Write them down and let me know what they are and we can go from there.
Good luck.

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!

I had the same thing happen with my lights. however i noticed there were cracks in the caseings for the lights and moisture was getting inside. It would appear that the heat from the lights and the moisture are what caused the problem. I have sinse replaced the housings and dont have that problem anymore. I went to an auto wreckers for used parts. much cheaper than new! very easy to do it yourself too.
