Ok we bought a new alternator, and a battery. The van worked and started great for a week and now it wont start at all. When turning the key it makes a clicking sound. We are fustrated with everything. We dont know what it could be. It worked just fine last night with no indacation that any thing was wrong. Please help.
Thanks

The first step would be to check and clean all the cable connections and verify full power arriving at the starter. Test for power arriving at the small "S" terminal when in start position. If you verify all that, then you may have a bad starter. You can try tapping the starter housing with a hammer while someone is trying to start it to confirm a bad starter.
