Vans not starting


Asked by Jan 21, 2015 at 02:32 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Venture

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My battery died a week and a half ago , I got a new battery and changed it today, as I
was finishing up the van started on its own,(keys in my pocket) I tried putting the key in
the ignition and turning it off and nothing, then I applied the brake and it shut off and lost
all power again. The van does have a remote starter but that has never worked in the year
Ive owned it. Anyone have a suggestion as to what may be wrong ? Thanks

Yes you need to trace all of the remote start wires..somewhere along its journey a few of the wires have fried or are freyed and touching causing an ignition ground fault..that van probably has multiple fault codes
