Place a jumper wire between terminals A and B of the diagnostic connector , located just under the steering column,pointing staight out. Turn the key on and after the initial 12 code ( flash ,pause, flash,flash), you can count the flashes to retrieve the error codes. ex. *** ** equals 32. each code will show 3 times . When 12 returns , you have retrieved all the stored codes. Good Luck.

Thinking 99 Chevy Astro van security light on solid band starts with cuts down is there anyway to bypass security without spending a lot of money

If the light is on there are code stored ! Not in the PCM/ECM engine computer . In the BCM , do you know what that is ? body control module ! Need a factory scan tool or equivalent to check !
DTC B0688 Security System Indicator Circuit High
DTC B2947 Security System Sensor Power CKT Low
DTC B2948 Security System Sensor Power CKT High
DTC B2957 Security System Sensor Data Circuit Low
DTC B2958 Security System Sensor Data Circuit High
DTC B2960 Sec Sys Sensor Data Incorrect but Valid
DTC B3031 Security System Controller in Learn Mode
DTC B3033 Security System Indicates Tamper
DTC C0559 EEPROM Checksum Error
Why does everyone want to chop up things , by pass etc... The right fix could be cheaper then ruining your vehicle . Chopping up wiring harnesses . Their are by pass module , don't know how much they are . It may or may not fix the problem . Pulling the code and doing the diagnostics is still the best solution .

2005 chevy astro van, difficult starting then high power idle then dies once driving has started

You need to take it to a ASE certified repair facility an have them hook up a diagnostic scan tool to check for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes an look over engine sensor data PID'S , Not a code reader ! When did you last have any maintenance done , plugs ,wires , Distributor cap an rotor , changed vacuum hose's or had them check for leakage ! Does you check engine light come on an stay on ?

How do I reset the computer on my 2004 Astro Van? The mechanic says it has to be reset to see if the error code comes up again, and then take it to him, but he has no time for me to go to have it reset...

Hi Dave.

The proper way to reset the DTC is using an OBDII scanner. Go to the nearest Autozone, ask to do a code scanning and to reset codes.

You can also reset the codes at home but you will need a scanner like this:OBDII Scanner - U480.

Here an example showing how to use a scanner tool to reset the codes.

You can also try disconnecting the battery. That will reset the engine check light until the problem occurs again. It may not clear stored diagnostic codes. Make sure that you have the stereo anti theft code if needed.

Will a trans out of a 95 astro van with a 4.3 work in a 92 z71 with a 350

No. the transmission from the 95 astro van is an electronically shifted trans controlled by the pcm. The 92 z71 is controlled by hydraulic pressure created internally by the trans pump and governor assy. Sorry.

Reset service engine light on chevy astro 2000 van ?

You don't reset it, you resolve what is causing it to register an error. You need to pull the codes from the computer and proceed with testing based on those clues.
