Well I'll start with we took this van to tennessee from louisville kentucky, never got a tune up just an oil change. one year later my van hesitates to start and when i give it gas it revs my engine and the van didn't move. now it's completely gone out on me, when i put the key in and turn it over the lights dont come on and the motor doesnt even make a noise, now i'm no guinese but i know that no lights means a battery problem but its fairly new "battery". i dont were to begin to fix this problem but i would like to know so i can find the best deal for something like this. or just buy a new used van

there could be several reasons for this type of problem. the engine is controled through main computer(ECM) and the sensors assocciated with it. most often times a hesitation is commonly a idle issue and that would be monitored by the TPS ( throttle position sensor) if this is beginning to fail it sends faulty reradings to the computer and the computer tries to compensate and sometimes either leans or richens the fuel air mixture cause and effect is a engine stall or a hesitation. another factor is your (O2) sensors these monitor your exaust and tell the ECM to adjust accordingly the fuel mixture also. a sure fire way to tell if one ore more sensors are faulty is to either have your check engine light come on or if there is a rough start. if the check engine light isn't on then i would think there is a timing issue involved and a tune up is in order. the tune up is simple by just changing plugs and wires, however the timing is computer controled and can only be adjusted by a certified tech with the proper equipment. try and change the plugs and wires first this is the least expensive way to solve your problem. if the problem persists then take it to a shop and have a tech hook up diagnostic tools to check the ecm for fault codes to narrow down whatsensors if any are faulty.
2000 chevy venture run good but my lights flickers and have to jump. After I jump the van and put my meeter on the battery its reading 14.volts at idle. I can drive around to store cut the van off come out it starts fine leave it overnite and it don't started.
