    Default Savana van shut down while driving!

    I have a 1997 1500 Savana Van with 140,000 miles. 5.7 Engine. ABS light came on. Brake light came on. Service Engine Soon came on. Lights went off and came back on twice then everything shut down. When I try to start the engine it came on but quit when I let go of the key. Then could not start van. Took battery cable off let sit for an hour then van started back up and has been working fine. Any thoughts of what could be wrong? Thanks for any help.

    I would guess the PCM is crapping out, or you have a wiring problem. You could start by working off each post of the battery. Check the wires closely. Connections should be clean and tight. Corrosion can occur inside the terminal, so give each wire a good tug.
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

    I agree you should look at your PCM terminals and your brake booster for leaks, The PCM sits under the booster and gets nailed anytime there is a brake fluid problem. I bought a used reprogrammed PCM for mine on ebay for $79 worked great! can't beat that. The guy had good ratings.
