replaced, ignition coil, WIN module (recall), starter solinoide ?, replaced wiring to starter when burned places were found. It doesnt matter whether van is hot or cold starting temp, i can go all day with errands starting and stopping and have no problems or i can have an no start nearly every time i try and start. battery is fully charged, no lights flash, headlights work. my thoughts: not enough voltage, or malfunctioning security system. im ready to pull hair out. very frustrated. have been recording it since i picked up from deal last wed. oh they replaced fuel pump due to a hesitating start up. that did fix that issue either. i will attach a video of the starting issue. unable to attach video sound is distorted. but i can send thru messenger if i had your name

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few possible causes for the lack of starter engagement and it will require some testing at the time the problem is happening to know for sure what is going on. The most likely cause would be the starter but it could be a cable or connection issue or possibly the transmission range sensor.

Was it the starter relay that was replaced? The solenoid is part of the starter.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
