Fifteen minutes! you have bigger problems than only the fans the fans are controlled by a thermo switch that is heated by the coolant, If you have no coolant the sensor cannot activate But fifteen minutes seems like you may have a headgasket problem and steam cannot heat the coolant sensor.OperationNotesThe electric cooling fan operates when the engine cooling temperature exceeds a certain value. The cooling fan on this engine is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) . The PCM turns the cooling fan ON by grounding the coil of the cooling fan relays when certain conditions are met. When the A/C is requested, the cooling fan will also be turned ON.

Power for the cooling fan motors are supplied through Maxifuses(R). The cooling fan relays are energized when current flows from the fuses in the Underhood Accessory Wiring Junction Block, and through the relay coils to ground through the PCM. The Coolant Fan 1 Relay Control Circuit is grounded for low speed fans operation. During low speed fans operation, both fans run at a slow speed. The Coolant Fan 1 Relay Control Circuit is grounded for high speed operation. During high speed fans operation, both fans run at high speed.

IMPORTANT: When certain Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are present, the PCM may command the cooling fans to run all the time. Perform the A Powertrain On Board Diagnostic (OBD) System Check prior to diagnosing the engine cooling fans.

For more information regarding the Charging System, refer to Charging System Description , and Charging System Circuit Description in Starting and Charging.

If a problem that involves the low speed cooling fan relay control circuit exists, DTC P0480 Cooling Fan Relay 1 Control Circuit should set. If the problem affects the high speed cooling fan relay control circuit, DTC P0481 Cooling Fan Relay 2 Control Circuit should set. A problem with the ECT sensor should set DTC P0117 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit Low Voltage, DTC P0118 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit High Voltage, DTC P1114 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit Intermittent Low Voltage, DTC P1115 Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor Circuit Intermittent High Voltage. Any of these DTCs will affect cooling fan operation and should be diagnosed before using the Electric Cooling Fan Diagnosis.

For more information regarding the Cooling System refer to Engine Cooling Fan Description - Electric, and Cooling System Description in Cooling System.


Here is the electrical schematic and how it all is suppose to work,

I believe you may have 2 issues. One is probably the sensor is not telling the fan to come on. The other issue is that u may need a new freeze plug. Beware though, if you see or smell any coolant, even a small amount, a freeze plug on a Chevy Venture is ridicilous to replace. $3 part, but the labor will be around $1000, since they have to take out your tranny to get to it.

I owned the same year and loved the van, but mine also began to do the same thing. My problem was the Head gasket. It had a small leak which caused the motor to over heat. A shop can put it under a pressure test to see if it has a leak. My leak allowed the coolant to seep where it didn't belong causing it to burn off. You might also check the water pump. If it's going out it won't always leak first. An faulty thermostat will also cause it to over heat. Good luck!

What is the correct way to fill the radiator of a chevrolet venture The low coolant light came on then started flashing but the radiator is full of water but has no anti freeze is this the problem


Hi there!
First.- with the engine off and cool, put a flush and drain radiator cleaner run the engine for 10 minutes, turn it off, let it cool down.
Once the engine is not too hot, open the lowest hose of radiator while you put water in the main mouth of radiator.
Once you see the water flushing clear, put the hose back and then fill it with special GM antifreeze, (the one is orange color) put all gallon into it and the rest of water, LOOK FOR THE ONE YOU CAN ADD WATER, THAT'S THE BEST FOR YOUR VAN... Good Luck!

I have a 2000 1500 chevy express van and i changed the radiator and now it overheats


I take it you have checked these possibilities: 1) coolant is good mixture and at sufficient level. (specific gravity OK and radiator / resevoir filled) 2) Radiator / cooling fan kicks on after reaching operating temperature. 3) Water pump is circulting coolant ( observe coolant moving in radiator, feel top hose for fluid movement with engine running) ??

Other than that, I would suggest replacing the thermostat and radiator cap. (recommended anyway when a radiator is replaced.) Also, did you flush your cooling system out when you did the replacement?

Please vote if this helped! Thanks, Mike

Van is over heating What can I do to fix it


first you let it cool down then you check the radiator fluid level if low add to it, then you.run it until it reaches 195 degrees check to see if the fan is working, if not try turning on ac now check see if the fan is working, if so you have a ground problem to the electric fan but if the fan was working than you have to change the thermostat,if after this it still overheats it will be your head gaskets are bad.

Pontiac Montana overheating


How do you know the thermostat is ok? If in doubt replace it. Water pumps are a even bigger what if. Did he do a radiator flush? Cooling system flush of the engine? Cooling fans come on at what temp and go off when? Replace the engine temperature sensor? 6 years old is bound to have sensors and such go bad.

Chevy Venture Overheating


Almost sounds like the same symptons as my van. Turns out the guage was not the problem. The van was in fact running hot because the electric radiator fans were not kicking in when the engine was hot. I replaced the relay switches for the fans. There are two of these in the fuse panel under the hood. There has been no problem with overheating since

2000 Chevy Venture Van has been overheating. The temp will spike all the way up and then quickly drop again. Back and forth like that.

Coolant fan not working- engine staying too hot


The fan might not be working because the sensor in the radiator could be bad.
