    is the security light flashing?

    The securty system cuts off the fuel injectors

    What color is the plastic portion of the Key, Grey Or Black?

    have you got another key?

    If so try this.

    Put a battery charger of the battery, turn on the key and leave it on for two hours (open a window so you dont lock the keys in) at the end of two hours don't turn off the key just try to start the van.

    What this does is get the vehicles PCM (computer) to reconize the chip in the security key. also there is much more to learn of these vehicles so try this first its common and Free to do. Contact me if you need any more help. Also something you can try before you do the relearn procedure.

    Lock all the doors unlock the passenger door with the key, this tells the security system you have the correct key if the passenger dooor doesn't work try the drivers and all the others one at a time its also common but use the other key I have seen many many "bad" keys.

    If this information is helpful please gie me a fixya! rating and if you need more help on this problem pleae contact me at fixya or

Can I call you or you call me I can explain better
The ASD relay that supplies power to the uel pump only sullplies power to 2 seconds after you turn the key on then it truns off so you have to check for power immediately after you trun on the key you need two (2) people.

My fuel filter and pump are in the tank so how do i know if that is the problem without pulling it out?

You need to perform a fuel pressure test to be certain it is a fuel problem you are experiencing. If no fuel pressure, you need to check for power and ground at the fuel pump. Sometimes not an easy task. A non operational fuel pump can be caused by a fuse/relay/fuel pump control module/ wiring. You can try banging on the bottom of the fuel tank with a blunt object while someone tries to start the vehicle. If the vehicle starts/tries to start during this procedure, suspect a fuel pump failure. Otherwise, it may be cheaper and less time consuming if a shop takes a look at it

1994 astro van wont start seems like no fuel,how to test fuelpump?

If you don't have fuel pressure test equipment then try spraying engine starting fluid in the air cleaner if it starts then you probably have a bad fuel pump, fuse or relay. The easiest is to check all your fuses if they look good. Look for the relay center under the hood the cover to the relay center will tell you which relay is the fuel pump relay. Try swapping relays with one that looks the same in the relay center. If it starts after swapping relays then you have a bad relay. Hope this helps you :)
