    I have the same problem, except for a 2000 astro. When I turn the key there is no hum sound from the fuel pump. Wednesday morning of last week it wouldn't start, then in the afternoon it worked fine. On Friday it started and drove fine in the morning and I started it about 3 time with no hitch, but now it won't start. My van is parked at a client's house 30 miles away and it would be great if there was some sort of on site fix like a loose wire or a broken relay.
    Also of note, my driver side automatic door lock doesn't completely unlock now, but tries to, a problem that just started happening.

When you put the key into the "on" position, do you hear a hum? You may need to put your ear next to the filler tube for the fuel to hear the hum when you have an assistant turn key on. Determine if you have spark or not. If not, you have have a bad igntion module or ignition coil.

92 astro van cpi 4.3 the injectors arent delivering gas to the cylinders. got gas to the injectors and good spark. the 2 wires on top of injector , with key on one is hot , is the other one...

Sounds like a bad ignition module. The module does two functions. It runs the ignition coil and also delivers the signal to the ecm to run the injectors. Sounds like it isn't putting out a tach signal.

Hi tinkerbel925

Have you tried scanning it with a scan tool? If this much is going wrong there should be a check engine light on. This will tell you what is making your van do all that crazy stuff.

Chevy astro van turns over but wont start when

Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,

It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
No gas
Bad fuel pump

1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting

if your mini van has a 4.3 litre engine v6, when you turn the key on you should be able to hear the electric fuel pump start. the fuel pump is inside the gas tank,if you hear the pump you might want to change the fuel filter. The thing about computerized engines and a throttlebody is that you need a fully charged battery to start work with.
