The van periodically is not starting. You turn the key, it makes sounds like it's going to start, but doesn't. The lights and radio are fine so doubtful that it's the battery.
Someone mentioned moving/pushing the van a little then trying to start it. That worked once yesterday.
Any ideas as to what this could be?

Try cleaning the throttle body. Take it of and hold it up to a light. You should be able to see light. Use brake cleaner, it works well for those kind of jobs. I did the same for my venture and my trail blazer.
#129 of 145 Chevy Venture won't start..??

I have a issue with my van that i cannot for the life of me figure out. A week ago it was running great, I shut it off and it sat for 2 days in freezing temps. I go to start it and all it does is turn over and make popping noises from out of the engine. It sounds like it wants to start came pretty close a couple of times but it will not turn over at all. anyone have any advice?

Did you ever resolve this problem? I just bought a 2003 Venture and it has the same issue. It dies while driving, just the battery light comes on, starts again after a few minutes. New battery, motor and other parts in it. Did you ever get an answer that worked?

There was a wire underneath the brake pedal that was shorting out. They switched it out and it was fixed right away at the dealership. Had it at another garage for over two weeks prior to that with them trying to figure it out. Good luck and hope this helps.
