Are the odometer and stuff at the bottom of the dash coming on? if not could be a bad solder joint on the printed circuit board of the dash that is fairly common with them. turn the key to the on position but don't actually start it yet and see if the lights are on, if not give the dash a nice whack right between the tach and the spedo and see if the lights come on. if that works then should be able to crank it up. low tech but if that is the prob it usually works to diagnose it instead of taking apart the dash and checking which would be the permanent fix. Hope this helps.

Changed feul pump feul filter changed computer. Van still shutdow


this could be a number of problems,check the voltage with a volt meter,not a test light at the fuel pump connection. make sure you have 12V,if so unhook the fuel supply line,turn key to ON not START, and make sure the pump will continue to flow,( obviously cqatch the fuel with a pail,or put a hose on it to pump it into a pail,don't let it leak all over the place.)if the pump continues to flow with out shutting off,your pump,filter,and electrical for your pump is ok.it could be a restriction in the return line,or the regulator may not be functioning.un hook the return line as close to engine as possible,install hose on it and route to a pail to catch fuel,with supply line hooked back up,start van and see if it works,if it keepd shutting off,you've now eliminated return line problems.check the regulator.

I Have replaced my starter and my battery and now the van does start up but shuts off after about 5 secs. When u push on the gas pedal it goes straight to the floor. Could it be a fuel filter? And if so...


if its not the fuel filter more than likely its your fuel pump.fuel filter is under your van around your fuel tank some where.you need metric wrenches to take it off. be careful not to twist your gas lines when taking off filter.good luck
