#2469 of 2511 wiper arm stays up
Mar 01, 2010 (7:18 am)
After recent snow my wiper arm doesn't return to the normal postion when in the off position. It stays vertical. I read some old posts on this subject that suggested a tab above the wiper motor may have gotten bent. I cannot seem to find this tab. Can anyone give me more direction in this area please?

Pop the hood and check to see if you have any snow/ice that prevents the arms from going fully down. Mine does this often and it is due to snow/ice there.

It's completely clear. It wasn't when the problem arose. I'm able to push the wipers down near where they belong, but after turning them on and then off they stop back in that vertical position anyway.

The wiper motor is likely bad and needs to be replaced - failure to park (return to the fully down position) is one of the symptoms...Its a semi-common problem on the Venture.

hi i have a 1998 chevy venture and I'm trying to locate a noise under the radio by a heater core box. It sounds similar to a blend door closing and opening and it feels like a scratching struggling noise. any one experienced something similar? If so, post a comment in reference to this issue. gracias

Hello. I purchased a 2001 Chevy Venture WB Edition at a really low price just a few days ago knowing that it had a few minor issues. One of those issues are the interior lights. All of them: Reading and dome lights. Did you find out a way to get them working again?
#2476 of 2511 2001 passenger door wont close - cable problem
Mar 27, 2010 (7:45 pm)
My 2001 Venture passenger power door won't close.... When I open it using the button it will open but the cable will not retract, it just dangles out of the door guide on the outside of the van. When I hit the button to close the door, it will not close, I can force it to close manually.
It seems like its a cable problem. I tried to take off the inside panel to see if there was a simple explanation as to why this is happening, but I could only see in using a flashlight.
If someone has the shop manual - can you please look it up for me with an explaination, part number, picture or any suggestions.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated?
#2477 of 2511 Thinking of buying 2005 model, problems?
Jun 01, 2010 (2:44 am)
I am looking at a 2005 Chevy Venture, it's the LS model, long wheelbase, with cloth seats, the 3400 engine, and 192K miles. I've talked the guy down to about $2400 and I'm comfortable paying that, but I want to know what problems the 2004-2005 owners have been having. Was the intake manifold gasket problem licked by then? Are the transmissions still having PCS solenoid failures? Do the fuel pumps still fail for no simple reason? I see a lot of problems on the 1997-2003 vans but no one mentions issue with the last two years???
