Question about Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

I'm having the same problem as this post that has no answer - http://www.fixya.com/cars/t4294432-chevy_venture_start_flashing_lights "2001 Chevy Venture that was running fine yesterday. This morning, it wouldn't start. The engine would not turn over, and there was no clicking as if alternator were bad. No security light indicator could be seen on the dashboard. Upon turning the car off and removing the key, the dashboard lights and dome lights flashed several times along with the doors locking and unlocking several times. In addition, there was a hissing/ whirring sound that came from the dashboard after the key was removed." One thing I noticed is that the fuel is very low. Any ideas?

It sounds like a battery issue. Check the battery connections, they may be loose at either post. Physically check to see if they are tight to the battery. Next if possible get the battery tested for state of health. If your battery is faulty or weak it will do a lot of weird symptoms, they all sound related. Also check the ground cable (the black one) to the body ground, this is usually on the right front fender (follow the smaller black wire from the battery). The other issue Venture vans are known for is the ignition switch. It could be faulty and either staying engaged with the key off, or not allow full voltage to accessories, such as wipers, door locks, theft deterrent system or computer modules (thats a whole different scenario).

It may be as simple as trying a different key but the security systems on gm vehicles have had problems with the ignition cylinders going bad and preventing the car from starting.
