SOURCE: Astro Problem

Ok First lets check the spark. Go in Steps first check to see if you have spark from the ignition coil TO the distributor cap by carefully pulling the coil wire out of the distributor cap, always grab by the boot not the wire never by the wire and wtist gently and pull slowly . once out hold the coil wire close to a ground and have someone crank the engine you will be ok as long as you do not put your hand over the end of the coil wire! Ok if there is Spark there Great, now reinstall the coil wire in the cap. Now go to a spark plug wire and do the same procedure but the plug wires are a bit different on the plug end than the coil wire so you may ned to put a phillips screwdriver in the end of the wire and hold the screwdriver close to a ground be careful of any moving parts like the fan! If you hve spark Great if not you need a distributor cap and rotor (USE ONLY FACTORY GM PARTS) it's very very common in the Astro van
First do these tests and get back to me at and we'll move on to the next step if we need to. If this information is helpful please give me a fixya! Rating Thank you, Randy

SOURCE: starter does not operate when ign key is turned to

Put the car in gear without the keys being in it, and push it forward until you feel the engine make a rotation, it wont be easy to push so put it in 3rd gear if its a manual? cant do this with an auto

hit the starter motor with a hammer to see if it free's up.

How do I charge my battery and shut off the alarm in my 1995 astro van?

Try turning key in door, the factory alarm will disarm when unlocked in door...that shouldn't affect the vehicle with starting if say try letting it sit on jumpers for a bit before trying to start ...make sure lights blower fan and stereos off will help a bit...(on both vehicles)...

2005 Astro van Head lights - How can I modify factory setting to turn off headlights when car is running?

Try pulling the fuse or the relay marked DRL (Daytime Running Lamps). More than likely each headlamp has its own fuse and relay.

Also, ensure that your headlamps work when you turn on the switch!
