I have a 1999 chevy venture. The bell(dinger) that alerts you that the keys are in the ignition or the headlights are on keeps going off for no apparent reason, in fact it gets faster when I take the keys out of the ignition! ANY CLUE?

Just bought a used 2002 Venture. No owner's Manual.
The interior lights do not come on when the doors open. They work, but only when I manually turn the lights on.
Is there some switch I need to hit to allow for them to come on automatically?
Also, the back seat overhead controls for the heat also do not seem to work, even when I put the front switch on "R"...any help greatly appreciated

Had the same issue with our 2000 Venture - replaced alternator -no more flicker. Get a remanufactured alternator - the GM OEM ones had weak voltage regulators.
Low voltage in any vehicle can make the electronics do weird things - if the supply voltage isn't right it gets everything "confused"
Good Luck - these alternators are a royal pain to replace. On the 2000+ years you rotate the engine forward to get to them, I believe before 2000 you get to it from the bottom by loosening or removing a frame part

Sorry first time I do this. My 2002 chevy venture van is having electrical problems. I did take it to the chevy dealer but will cost me more then $750.00 to find a power wire number 1340 that is not getting power from battery to module. As the repair man stated if its disconnected he will reconnect it, if its frayed he will tape it, if its corroded he will replace it for the unbelievable price of over $750.00 estimated. If anyone out there has any info please write me back. Just in case this is what is happening I have no tail lights, no dash lights, and no auto daytime running lights but i do have manual headlights and tail lights. Thanks to all who help!!!!!

If you know where this powerwire is , why not take it elsewhere (a place you trust) and get some more prices. Or, you can buy this wire yourself and just pay for the labour at a cheaper place. Just a thought.
