We attempted to jump the van when it seemed "dead". No response at all with the jump cables. I took the 1 year old battery to be tested and they said there was nothing wrong with the battery. The next morning the van started just fine. I took it in to a mechanic at that time and he said battery, alternator, starter were fine. Did not know what the problem was. There have been two incidents since in which it did not start on the first try. It acted as if it were dead. No response. After several attempts it then started. I took the van in yesterday to the dealer. They could not find anything wrong with it.
I use a key fob. Does that have anything to do with it?
