My Montana started, ran about a minute, then died. It seemed as if all of the power just drained away. Then nothing. It would not start again. My husband used the jumper cables to try and start the van. As long as the cables were connected between the two vehicles, the van started and ran. When he disconnected the cables the van stopped dead, and had no power. He thinks that it is either the battery, or something called the alternator. Can you suggest anything? Thank you!
