i have a 1998 venture ls.about a month ago the car died while driving it and wouldnt start(starter didnt even try)and the battery was dead.charged the battery and took it to autozone. said bad battery so i replaced it.1 hour drive time and dead battery again so i took it back, and bad alternator they say.so i replaced it.(made sure to buy the delco 140 or 145 amp cant remember) about 1 hour drive time later battery dead again.. so off to the dealer for a test. they say it is the pcm (transmisson section 800 dollars) so i found the same pcm (same chevy pcm and part number...brand new) they asked for my vin number for programming and stamped vin on it.(it is correct) and still keep killing the battery. it is almost like the alternator is not coming on. when i have it running and i disconnect all leads to the alternator i only get about 2.3 volts at the post(and no dummy lights come on). also you can watch the voltage while at idle on a meter go down about 1 tenth of a volt at a time(30 seconds) until about 5volts where it just dies. i removed the ground and cleaned it on the wheel well by the battery and removed and cleaned all connections at the starter.. someone please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!....i needpointed in some direction... i am out of ideas!!!

Mine stopped working on a regular basis and there is a proceedure to go thru that will make it work again. Do a search on resetting the door opener and you'll find it. If I have time, I'll post it here unless you find it before me. I also think it's in the owner's manual; check there.

I have a piece of crap '02 Venture WB ( )and I believe that there was a recall on certain models for the sliding door.
Also, the wheel berrings and brakes always cost me a fortune for this thing.

Yes, but the recall was to allow the door to reverse if someone's arm is caught in the door as it opens. The doors already reverses if someone is in the way when CLOSING, so they had to also include the door to reverse as the door is OPENING, in case a child's arm is in there as it opens. That was the recall.
The recall was NOT for a simple non-working door.

#2455 of 2501 Need new tires, need help choosing
Oct 23, 2009 (10:27 am)
Have an '02 Chevy Venture van. Looks like I'll be choosing between the Firestone FR710 or the Goodyear Fuel Max tires. They will essentially cost me the same amount. The Goodyear is supposed to save me on gas mileage which would be great. But I see more positive reviews on the Firestone.
I live in Wisconsin. Need something decent in snow and rain. Are one of these a lot better than the other?
