#44 of 131 Chevy Venture 2002 don't start
May 20, 2008 (8:40 am)
Ok, after I checked the CPS it seem it is not the problem. So....
My Chevy starts very well when is cold but it did not start when is hot. I mean I have no power for the starter so the engine did not turn so it is not the CPS the problem. I change the starter and ignition relay and I have no idea what could be the problem. All the display indicators seem to be O.K. No alarm.
Why I don't have power to the starter when the engine is hot? Its start right away when the engine is cold.
Thank you for yours answers.

Just a thought. Check the under hood fuse box. There should be a relay for the ING or starter. These, I think, are the smaller relays and they go bad or weak. They are fairly cheep and just replace it anyway.
My fuel relay was this way. Hopefully this is it.

There are 3 reley, the same type, one for starter. I allready did this.
It could be just a wire but onestly I don't thing its a wire problem.

'01 Venture LWB
2 year old battery
Sometimes when we try to start it, dash goes crazy, nothing happens under the hood. Return key to "off" position and try again and it starts just fine.
Any ideas why?

I am having the same problem with our 2003 chevy venture. Garage has had it for 1 week with no answers. Did you ever figure yours out? Any help would be great

Hi: I took the van to our local Chevy dealer who said the problem was caused by a corroded electrical connection for the fuel pump motor. The dealer replaced the corroded connection and we haven't had any problems in the two or three months since. I won't feel better until next winter when the cold weather returns and the problem doesn't! Hope this helps, good luck.

Here's what the problem was in one case:
Loose wire to starter connection as well as corrosion in between the battery cable bolts and the connection cover over the bolts. Even though I had cleaned the wall of the battery and the bolt threads, there was poor continuity from bolt to cable...

Hi I'm new here I have a 99 venture van, We were going down the road and it died. I had it towed home. I frist checked moge and was good replaced the coils. Got plenty of fire. But no fuel if you squirt fuel in the intake it will run until fuel runs out. I've replaced the Fuel Pump and relay and still the pump won't kick on also replaced the fuel filter. With no luck I'm stumped any Ideals anyone. Thx alot David

I don't know what a "moge" is, but I'm glad you checked it.
Here's something to look at:
If you follow the wires back from the fuel pump, they go to a Pass-thru connector under the drivers seat - this connector has been known to get corroded and fail and make techs think the fuel pump/relay was bad - pull it open and make sure that everything is Ok in there...
