Question about 1997 Chevrolet Venture

2 Answers

1999 Chevy Venture Van - AC not cooling, recharged and it worked for a couple of days but quit again, we figure it was a leak. The fan switch also does not work on speed 1 but will work on other speeds. Now, the battery is dying. It will jump start but will be dead the next day. Could these two problems be related and what could be killing my battery?

,, check your output voltage at the back of the alternator or a easy way is strat the car and disconnect one of the battary termianls and see if the car is still running,, if not your alternator might be bad ,, local auto zones will check it for free if u take it out ,, but don't untill u have check other things,, fan switch has a resistor in the heater core box ,, one elment might be bad in it ,, make sure the alternator is charging the battary try what i said unplug it while the car is runnging the battary terminal one of them .. don;'t do this for to long , you can blow the diodes in the alternator ,, so jsut check and if it runs then shut it off ,, its not your alt if it keeps running after u disconnect the terminal

2002 Chevy venture ac heater fan keeps blowing while van is off


You probably have a bad switch, Disconnect the wires from the switch. If it stops, replace the switch. If it doesn't, stop, you might have a stuck relay, or a short somewhere.

1999 Chevy Venture Problems


you have 4 water lines, they are 2 radiator hoses (top and bottom) the bottom one runs from the lower part of the radiator to the water pump, the top radiator hose runs from the upper part of the radiator to the thermostat housing

2 heater hoses, they go from the water pump to the firewall.

if you know which one has a hole then you should take the van to a parts store (if you can safely drive it that far) and show them, they can get the right one for you... and sometimes you can talk someone into putting it on for you.

as for the fluctuating gauges you probably need new sending units for the temp gauge and fuel gauge

I have a 2001 Chevy Venture, this fall all of the sudden the air conditioner quit blowing cool air you can push the switch for AC but it doesn't light up or blow cool air. and the rear defroster quit...


I'm afraid I must recommend some professional help with this one. Or maybe a mechanic friend.
There's so many things..... For example the 134a (freon) may have leaked causing the Low Pressure Cut Out Switch, (in the hose under the hood) to keep the compressor off so as to not burn it up.
Could be a fuse or relay. Could be the switch controll on the dash... See what I mean?
Sorry but in my opinion you'll have to bite the bullet and pay the piper. Cheaper in the long run, though. You can replace many things before you luck onto the problem part.

1999 Chevy Cavalier A/C blows hot air


More likely the recharge blew a o-ring and you have a leak. When your Cavalier was blowing hot air and a recharge fixed it that means it was low on freon which lets o-rings dry out, go back to the shop and have them leak test it. They use a pressurized dye to find the problem. If it's blowing it's not the cooling fan relay, they may have meant compressor relay but I'd have a leak test done first it's not expensive and easier that chasing unknown possibilities.

2000 Chevy Venture Van has been overheating. The temp will spike all the way up and then quickly drop again. Back and forth like that.


Almost sounds like the same symptons as my van. Turns out the guage was not the problem. The van was in fact running hot because the electric radiator fans were not kicking in when the engine was hot. I replaced the relay switches for the fans. There are two of these in the fuse panel under the hood. There has been no problem with overheating since
