SOURCE: I have A 2000 Chevy 3500 Express Van and the brake

Hi,

When you said that you checked the brake switch, did you check it live? Meaning verified live power to the switch, press switch, and then power came out the other terminal?

If so, also verify zero power on brake press, at the offending brake light bulb terminal. You must verify the test light each time you move it...leave running lights on...

After verifying that there is no power coming, after the brake is pressed, note the wire color and find it where it comes to the steering column and test there... This would eliminate wires and connections between front and the rear of the vehicle, unlikely, but needs to be tested.

After verifying no power at that terminal, then yes the t/s switch is certainly suspece. This may be the time to get a mechanic to verify and replace the switch, there are locks, tilt mechanisms, air bags, column bearings, etc involved. Failures risk loss of vehicle control (locking or binding for example.)..

Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

The van should already have a tranny cooler. You can get a bigger cooler and it is a fairly easy job to change.

2005 chevy express 3500 door light and radio stay on when you turn van off take the key out and open the door. how to fix


This Van has a system in it called delayed exit, this means the radio and other accessories stay on for a time as long as none of the doors are opened, when the door is opened the module senses that switch in the door is activated and shuts everything off. The easy way to test this is open the passenger door, if all shuts off you found the problem, the driver door switch is defective. the switch is attached to the door lock inside the door.

2000 chevy express 3500 van with a 350. Hard time starting. When it starts runs beautiful! Will only start after several taps of the key as if you where setting timing. Not with key fully turning over....


sounds like the check valve in fuel pump is allowing fuel to drain back out of lines. this would require ystem to prime up each time it is cranked. check fuel pressure it should hold with key off if it leaks down this is problem and pump will need to be replaced
