I am looking for the 3-seat middle row for a 2004 Venture. Chevy wouldn't help at all since they don't make the Venture anymore and no one else seems to know what I'm talking about. I tried a local junk yard but they just had bucket seats or the 2 seat bench seat which has the wider middle seat- that's the set up I have now. No one seems to be too familiar with the fact that the Venture has this 8 seater option so I've had trouble getting anyone to even check for me. I understand I may need to buy the whole 3 seat row or at least the middle and the 8th seat. Anyone have any idea how I can get this middle row? My seats are grey but I don't even care if it's a perfect match at this point. Help Please!!!

I understand your frustration. I purchased my 2nd Venture last August and it came with the seating configuration you are talking about. It sure is nice that it can seat 8 people. The middle row consists of 3 independent seats so I can easily change the seating configuration as needed. Good luck on your hunt, just wanted you to know this does exist.

Jul 24, 2007 (3:15 pm)
I got a 2003 Venture and it has a cd player in it. It just so happens that there is a steel post/pin just off center where you'd put the cd in. It seems that it is the pin that is there upon delivery/installation. Could anyone confirm this or guide me in the right direction to take the stereo deck out to see for myself? The cabinet surrounding the deck seems to be fastened with something in behind the dash panels. Please Help!!!!
#2315 of 2512 Chevrolet Venture Rear Entertainment System
Aug 04, 2007 (7:56 am)
Hello. Does anyone know where I can get a wiring schematic for the Chevrolet Venture WB-Edition rear entertainment system with the DVD player(2003)? My DVD acts like it's playing but the screen doesn't activate. I got the screen to activate one time but all it showed was a blue screen & the words "reading...". I assume the DVD player was trying to read the DVD, but never played anything. IF I HAD A WIRING DIAGRAM/SCHEMATIC FOR THIS SYSTEM I COULD MOST LIKELY REPAIR IT. IF I CAN FIGURE OUT THE PROBLEM (I have an electronics engineering degree) I WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO POST THE REPAIR HERE FOR ANYONE ELSE TO SEE SO THEY COULD REPAIR THIER OWN REAR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM (NOT THROW THEIR WALLET TO DELPHI TO REPAIR IT.) THANKS.

I'm sorry - I don't have the schematic you're looking for, but I do have a 2002 WB with the same problem. We can get certain movies to play (Any old Scooby Doo animated discs will play), but most of our movies will not. We either get "reading" on the screen, or nothing. I am now using a portable DVD player plugged into the van's system to bypass the picky van DVD. When we first got the van new in '02, it would play anything. It seems like it got pickier as the years passed. If you can figure out a fix, please let us know. Thanks and good luck!
#2317 of 2512 Rear DVD problems
Aug 08, 2007 (5:17 am)
I might suggest to you both that your dvd player is working fine, but the disc you put in them has a different coding than was used in 2002-2003. As I understand it (from having problems like yours on my home dvd player) some older dvd's are recorded/formatted in "+R" while all newer (since 2002) are recorded in "-R". Some early dvd players only play dvd's recorded in "+R", thus you have a problem when you put in a dvd formatted in "-R" into an older player that only plays "+R". I hope this makes sense. Good luck.
#2318 of 2512 FUEL LEAKS
Sep 04, 2007 (5:44 am)
I have recently noticed a strong fuel odor when starting the engine on my 2002 Venture. Yesterday I finally got a chance to look under the vehicle and noticed fuel leaking from a canister under the driver's door. I am assuming that this is an in-line fuel filter. Has anyone else seen this same issue and is it a relatively easy fix?

I own a 2001 Venture Warner Brothers Edition. I would like to change the stock VCP to a DVD player. Does anyone know where to buy a direct replacement and what the cost may be?
I bought the van new and it has been very good. One thing that may benefit others is that the A/C was not blowing much air recently. If you switched it to max it was very slow. I tried everything to fix it and all to no avail. That is until I replaced the cabin filters in the glove compartment for the first time. By the way, this was just this past summer. Hope this helps someone.
