Please check that the battery cables are tight and that the battery itself is not moving around.

What could be the problem ive put new belt on my van and now it keeps dying when idling what could this be


Your Kia has a serpentine belt. Make sure it is run correctly around the pulleys and make sure it isn't hanging off the pulleys somewhere rubbing somewhere.

What's causing my van to die when I turn on the ac/heat?


Sounds like the system is pulling too much power! First check the charging system and battery! With the key off, your battery should be at 12 volts or better! When you start the van, check for 13 1/2 to 14 volt charge at the battery! If that checks out good, next you want to plug in an OBD2 code reader under the dash on the driver's side, and check for codes! If there are no codes, it could be the system itself having the problem!

98 Olds van, how does the high/low cooling fan work?


I'm showing three fan relays in the wiring diagram.
The fans are powered by two 30amp maxi fuses. The relays and fan motors are grounded thru the engine computer. The computer takes input from the coolant sensor and the ac control to decide when fans are needed. You would need to know if the computer is grounding the relays, and if not, why not. You may need a scanner to monitor computer output.

My 2002 volvo s60 non turbo has been dying when i take a right sharp curve or when I turn my wheel to the right to turn into a parking place. any ideas. the recent incident I was coming down a mountain...


The first thing i would check with this kind of problem is the ignition switch if it's mounted in the steering column. There may be a wire on it that has an OK connection when the steering wheel is pointed straight but turning the wheel to the right stresses something a little and cuts power to an important leg of the switch.

95 ford windstar dies when i turn the steering wheel hard


windstar has a pressure switch on the pressuer line to the rack and pinion, squeeze the plug and pull up to disconect it and see if it happens again. you might have a short in one of these wires or the switch ... to reach the switch it is mounted on top of the power steering rack so reach down behind the motor on the driver side or crawl under and reach up on driver side
