Sounds like the altenator is shot or the fusible link between the alt. and the battery.

Take your battery in for testing after charging it. Then, to avoid pulling the Alternator for nothing, drive to a local Autozone, Advance, or Oeilys and ask them to check your charging system on the Van.
Consider taking an extra battery if you have one to fit, so you can get back home after the test. Run the van with the charger connected until you get good heat, then reduce the blower fan speed to minimum. Then disconnect charger.
If you are still stuck on the road, jumpstart the van until it is warm, using the jump car to charge the battery so you can go home and try again. Just leave the battery jumpers connected to the struggling van battery a few minutes so the old battery has a chance to charge.

The van will start and run for about 2 seconds and quit i changed fuel pump,filter,distubitor,cam and crank sensors and module


Gm vehicles have been known to have faulty anti theft security systems. One of the symtoms of this is when your vehicle starts for 1-5 seconds and then stalls. A good way to know if this is the problem is when you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY. If you see this light flashing or on solid, this explains the van not starting.

The van has been idling rough for a while now one day it wouldnt start i boosted it and it started and i drove it home turned it off and it wouldnt start boosted it again and it started but still idles...


You need to do a complete tune-up on the van. If the battery is 4 years old or older then replace the battery. If not check fluid level in each cell, if low you can fill to correct level with distilled water. then you can charge the battery. Using a volt meter you can check the alternator at the positive post on battery with the van running to see if it is charging correctly. You should have 14.5 volts to 15 volts. check the air filter and replace if dirty. Check the spark plugs and replace old plugs. replace the fuel filter on van. hope this will help you.

Something in my fuel pump is draining my battery and the van wont start. Meaning this I charge up the battery to start the van and the van will turn over but not fire (start) I replaced the fuel pump...


could be a bad ( tps ) sensor it registers the amount of pedal you give it so it knows how much fuel to give the engine if the starting volts are not where they should be it won't start.

Check the starter. Sounds like it is not getting any juice. Tap on it with a long metal pole or hammer while someone tries to start it.

There is without a doubt an issue in your cars charging system. Depending on location there are a few cheap options. First of all I would get the battery charged back up to full power on a lower amp charge. Once charged, start the vehicle up and see if you have the battery light on. If you do, drive it an autozone and have them check the battery and charging system for free. More than likely it's your altenator. I would first check for fuses for the altenator either under hood or in cab. The owners manual will give a break down of fuse locations and what each fuse gives power too. let me know if you need farther assistance
