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?

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.

ON A 2002 GRAND CARAVAN THE AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON.ANY SOLUTION?THANKS


I would take it to the local Advance Auto - and Auto Zone - [ second opinions come in handy] - ask them to run the codes -- they will know what this means.

If there is a code follow up - if not I would just as a part of iliminating things - remove the negative battery cable for 30 minutes - after reinstalling it - observe the light. There may be a recall too -
take down the vin number and ask the local dealer if there have been any recalls or service bulletins

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 !

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!

HEAD LIGHTS


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.
