security light wont go out while trying to start van.
I have a Safari 1987, i changed my spark plugs and my car is starting to stall and cut off on me when im driving not sure what the problem is. I was told its the fuel pump but not sure!
i have looked and i cant figure out how to remove that clip on the brake pedle
the new blower motor burned up the day mechanic installed it (smoke filled van) Replacement is doing the same as the first before it burned, air comes though vent on high speed, then drops off and comes out the heater vent by the floor.
The old motor never did this. I'm afraid to use it, and it's useless blowing on the floor anyway (a/c itself went out over 2 years ago) Can something be done.

I understand this is related to the EBCM. Dealer tells me in excess of $1300 to replace. Read other blogs about some potential fixes. Trying to gather as much DIY info I can before shelling out the big bucks only to find it was some simple fix. Any and all suggestions appreciated. Thanks..Lee
Is this a common problem and if so, what can I do to fix it?
when i stop anywhere the engine idles up i can take it out gear and it idles back down put it back in gear and it will idle up again

one time the dealer told me the manifold needed to be cleaned so i said ok, it seemed to run allot better, now i think it needs to be done again, i tried spraying carb cleaner in throtle body but didnt work, how does the dealer do it so i can try it.
will not start
this happen when i changed rotors
The van was electrically dead after driving it a half hour before. When we tried to jump it, it almost caused my buddy's truck to die and over heated the jumper cables. Took out the old battery and when installing the new one it arced and caught the side post on fire. What would cause this kind of short?
Has a 4.3 liter with steel heads and block,I replaced the head gaskets and had the heads machined,it ran fine for an hour and a half then it overheated,a shop said it either had warped heads or a cracked block.I think that possibly the torque wrench i used may be bad ,if i over torqued the head bolts could this have made the head or block crack?I didnt put a whole lot of force when i tightened them down.
Have excessive voltage drain at 50a "batt fuse" under hood. Wire tracks to under dash to convenience center. It is near impossible to pull connectors from blocks on convenience center so am looking for identification of connectors (wires) to help track where they go.
While driving down the freeway it died and wouldnt start again, i tried to turn the motor over with a breaker bar and socket but it wouldnt move at all. Trans was just rebuilt i thought there may be something with that.
I am not sure when, but someone tried to break into my van, unsuccessfully, and broke the whole lock, and handle. Now I cannot get the back doors to open, and I desperately need to get to the lens on the tailight and change the bulb, but I cant because the handle and all is broke. Any advice??
the horn fuse is good.
Where do i find the fuse or what is the fuse #?
Replaced bulb and now the left turn signal light is lit on the dashboard and won't turn off. When I use the turn signal it's a fast flash instead of the usual. I bought a flasher at a local parts store, but can't seem to find where I need to install it.
Dealer replaced catalytic converter on Aug 18, 2011. Picked up vehicle on Aug 19, 2011 and drove it from that date till Sept 11, 2011 when the no start problem occured.

They come on without warning or any known reason and will stay on until I turn the switch off and back on. This will remedy the problem until who knows when. Sometimes 30 min., later or 2 to 3 days later. It varies and without warning.
