Remote FOB Problem with my 1998 Chevy Venture. Mileage = 200,000+
Engine size = 3.4
Question = Need to program a keyless remote. This is the second one I have had. It had
worked and then stopped. Bought a new one and followed program instructions like before but
nothing happened. All locks will open with key in the door, but locks don't open with inside
switches or remote. Any suggestions?
This does not sound like a remote problem. The locks are controlled by the Door lock
receiver. Sounds like you either have a problem in some wiring splices, or maybe one of the
door lock switches, or even both.

Common Lock Problem
2001 Chevy Venture warner brothers edition. 3.4L V6.
Question: My van makes a crackling sound at start up but it goes away and no more noises
occur after its started, the lights before start up are dimmer and the power seat doesn't move
as quickly. What is wrong and whats the approximate cost of the repair.
This sounds like a weak battery problem. A weak battery will cause things like relays, lights
and switches to buzz, flicker or work slowly. Check to see if the battery cables are tight. A
fairly common problem is that when you try to tighten the cables, the lug in the battery will
twist or even pull out of the battery. You would need to replace it and possibly the cable bolt
or entire cable.
Problem with my 1994 Oldsmobile Ciera Cutlass.
I was getting out of the car and pulled the handle. Somehow it disconnected and now i can't
et out of the car from the inside.
It sounds like the inside door handle is broken. This is quite common on the older ciera.A
lever on the backside of the handle attatches to a rod for the latch. The lever breaks off. You
will need to replace the inside door handle.
