I have a 97 chevy astro. I just hadto replace the ignition lock cylinder in it. The van was starting fine before changing it. After it was changed the van will crank bit not turn over.


It is your VATS anti theft system that is giving you fits. You have two choices, get a locksmith to change the pins in your new lock cylinder to your old key and use the original key with the proper chip for your VATS system, or get a hold of a shop that installs remote start systems and have them bypass the VATS system

1999 Chevy astro van won't start


Had the same issue with our 1999 chevy astro van, would crank but would not start. It had been raining and windshield had a leak, after 2 days of no rain it started. Pulled codes and was the Security system in the ignition switch. Hope this helps.

I need a fire timing order for a chevy astro van v6


THE FIRING ORDER IS AS FOLLOWS : 1-6-5-4-3-2.
CYLINDER NUMBERS (front-to-rear) :
LEFT (driver side) 1-3-5
RIGHT (passenger side) 2-4-6

To set ignition timing, ensure that engine is at operating temperature, (190 degrees or above), bypass EST (electronic spark timing) by unplugging the single tan wire with a black stripe from the distributor. Ignition timing should be set at 0 degrees or TDC (top dead center). If not, loosen distributor hold down bolt and adjust, then retighten.

Can I remove a damaged ignition key switch from a 99 astro van?


yes, that is what a large srew driver is for, hehe.
However you will need to pull the stering wheel
and remove the internal blinker assembly and remove a bolt holding it in place, if you need to move the tumbler use a srew driver and force it around. This
should be done by a good mechanic, even we have a fun time...If it is design like I think
