#111 of 268 Lights go dim and bright while engine is running.
Jan 05, 2009 (9:44 pm)
Hello, I have a 2000 chevy venture. All my lights inside and out go dim then bright, dim then bright, dim then bright continously all the time while the enginge is running no matter if it idles or i am driving. Anyone have a clue. Dealership wants 150 dollars just to look at it and I don't have the money for that plus them to fix it. Does anyone know if there is a fix ? Like a regulator or something I can replace? Thanks, Will be waiting for response.....

I am having the same problem. This has been going on for several weeks. Yesterday I lost all of my back lights. Have you found the solution yet?

Did you ever get this figured out? My van is doing the same thing. Seems to be connected to the auto head light feature.

Yes. It took a long time but we finally figured out that the lights for the mirror in the visor was shorting and causing the fuse to intermittently blow. We simply disconnected the wiring harness to the visors and the problem has gone away. I hope you can solve your problem. Please let us know how you make out.....

#116 of 268 My head lights dim and air fan slows when backing
Feb 09, 2009 (12:54 pm)
OK here we go.... I have an 02 Venture WB and every time we put it in reverse the dash and head lights dim and the fan for the air slows front and back. We had the alternator pulled and checked and the tech said it was bad. The same day they put a new one in and it still did the same thing . If anyone has any ideas I need to know ASAP!!!!! OH and from what I can tell GM needs to put a warning on the door of this thing that says "NEEDS BOTTOMLESS BANK ACCOUNT!" Thanks

It does seem like junking the van would be the less 'head-achy' thing to try, but most challenges are like that. Right? Well, anywho... I would suggest putting a little more time into it yourself before giving up. Check the tranny completely and very closely. Not just what the "book" might say. (or mechanic) Then perhaps try taking a closer look at all of the electricals on your own. I know this is a whole heck of a lot of work, but what if you find the problem and fix everything eh? You might have already thought of what the problem is, and just forgot to check. Try writing everything you did down and everything you wanted done as well. Then write down what you didn't think of. A partner to "brainiac" the problem always helps. And try to keep thinking " What if i sell it or junk it only to find out in a month that it was only a wire i missed " Or just junk it. Your choice, my two cents. Hope everything works out. If i think of anything i will post you.

Hello from umm earth??
Yup that's the place...Hey I am having the same problems with my doors that you have described here. My venture is a 2000 though. It is irritating me about as much as an out of tune bee would irritate me.(bees are our enemy on my planet) I would really appreciate it if you could Email me or post me a reply if you find a solution. I will do the same if i find it first. My word or na-noo, na-noo.(i know, weak) Will look in as i usually do. thanks...Lew.
#120 of 268 problem with electrical
Apr 16, 2009 (9:48 am)
My 2002 Chevy Venture has lost it's mind I have lost all my buttons where it tells the directions and the temp outside. I had all the fuses checked and they are fine, but they won't work. I asked a mechanic he told me it was a memory board that was behind it if I don't get it fixed it will make everything go hay wire. I don't know where that is and I don't have the "Bling Bling" that he wants to fix my problem.
I thought of doing it myself but I need a little nudge to tell me where to look for it and I thought maybe someone else has the same problem, plus my fuel gauge says I am empty when I sit at a red light or driving takes a long time for it to go back up. Plus I have the bucking problem to at one time or another. Am I crazy or is this VAN? Did anyone find out what kind of recalls it had cause my dealer said they are NO recall's on the Chevy Venture vans plus if they were my mileage is above warranty. I bought it used.
