2000 GMC Safari electrical and running issues Sign In

Hey everyone!

I just took my van into the shop and they replaced the Ignition Coil, Lead Coil wire, EGR Valve, and Instrument Cluster.
When I drove it home everything was perfectly fine.
When I just drove it home from work this morning it was going crazy...

It seemed when I accelerated it would...
lock the doors continuously, have trouble accelerating/jumpy and seemed like it might die, ding continuously (like the lights were on and car was off), the air bag light would come on, and the ABS light would come on.

Please help! I wanted to get to the cities to spend New years eve with my gf, all the shops are closed today :(

Thanks!

What is the charging system voltage at the battery terminals? Make sure the battery connections are clean and tight.

By clean and tight that means you need to work the terminal out of the rubber end that surrounds it and get it shiny clean. It there is a lot of corrosion on the bolts get new ones. I think the Oreilly in your town is open today. I've been there on Sundays before. Get a tube of dielectric grease while you're there. Coat the connections real good with it, it prevents future corrosion.

I'm not very skilled here, so im not sure how to check charging system voltage at the battery terminals..

I will clean the connections to the battery, im pretty sure they are good, are there any other connections i should check too?

I checked the connections to the battery and everything was fine, no corrosion and they are nice and tight, still doing the same thing.

Put a multimeter on the battery terminals while its running and tell us what its reading.

This should be a side post battery so slide the rubber back off the cable end and wire brush the metal eye and the battery terminal.
