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.

I had to replace the computer in mine to fix the problem.
I spend $2500+ trying to fix the problems for 2 years and never did.
Spent $844.66 for a new computer and reprogram at the dealership. Have not had a problem in several years now.
#136 of 145 stalling and hesitation
Jun 30, 2013 (5:41 pm)
Hi, I have a 98 chevy venture 3.4L with 190,000 miles. The problem I am having is that when i make a left turn, the van acts like it wants to shut off, and while i am sitting at a stop sign it lurches sometimes and other times it don't do anything wrong. What is the problem. It starts just fine, i don't hear any noises. All the fluids are fine. Any advise would be helpful.

Hi - the best suggestion I found from someone here was that it was related to a wiring problem under the brake pedal. I have the same problem with my van - a 2003 Venture (no lurching though) - it just dies for no reason. I realized it was happening when stopped, when slowing or in the middle of a left turn. It doesn't happen often, but it is weird when it does. I'm waiting for an appointment to have it looked at but I suspect wiring is where the problem lies. Good luck with your van.

Hi, Thought I'd bring this here. My parents have a 2000 Chevy Venture with over 130k, that I also drive. Over the summer, an interesting starting issue began, and it doesn't happen very often. What happens is the car will start, idle very rough, then stall. It has happened after sitting 5 minutes, after sitting for 40, and it has happened after a 40 mile drive, and a 1-2 foot drive (literally). I believe its something in the fuel system (but I am not sure), and a lucky well timed slap of the gas gets the car to a normal idle, as well. Has anyone else had this issue?

Did you ever figure this issue out ? I have been having the same issue with my 2000 Chevy Venture (with the coolant light) and earlier today it died at a stop sign and now wont stay running...
I replaced my fuel pump , filter and relay about 3,000 miles ago and can hear the pump click on... So im hoping that really isnt the issue again.
