It sounds like the fusible link,or links have burned into.They are located on the starter itself.They look like a wire,and are bolted on with the positive cable on the starter.To check them,just pull on them ,and they will pull apart like taffy.These are easy to replace,be sure to disconnect the neative cable first.You can purchase these fusible links at a auto parts store.NAPA carys them,i know.They are not expensive either.Do not use regular common everyday wire.You will burn the van down to the ground if there is a short.When you install these,and connect the battery back up look at the fusible link,or links to see that they are not burning back up.Besides a short,these fusible links go out do to hard starts(holding the key to start at low battery voltage.After you replace these links,check or have the battery checked,and the alternator,to see if it is charging enough.If I can help,let me know,this should be the only reason for this to have happened.

I have a 1995 chevy astro van it turns but it won't. Start unlesa you use starting fluid what could it be?


Since it will run on starting fluid, I would guess you have improper fuel supply. Install test gauge to see what fuel pressure you have. Could be bad pump, relay, fuel filter, regulator valve.

How can you check if fuel pump is bad on a 2002 chevy astro


Check your TPS Sensor. My 1995 Chevy Astro Van did the same thing and I thought it was the fuel pump but I was wrong.

The fuel pump might be working but it is not priming. When you turn on the vehicle, the pump sends fuel under pressure to the injectors, to "prime" or have fuel present to be able to start engine. Without it there will no fuel available to start it. You are manually priming the engine, and the fuel pump is taking over from there. Check connections to fuel pump and replace if necessary. It is not an inexpensive repair
