As long as your seeing the headlights dimming somewhat as you turn the key all the way, the clicking is most likely the starter motor switching relay or the small relay located on the starter motor it self, have your husband open the engine compartment to see if he can locate the noise that is clicking and popping, I don't believe his work had much to do with this. Try jumping it, and if possible tap the starter motor. The black ground at the battery, or even the cables may be causing too much resistance, I hope you can get it started with a jump. It also would be a good idea to test every fuse in the van, especially in the power center it has a black lid, now its an intelligent power centeer, but it has fuses, these are the only items I can think of that may be causing this, maybe just having the pedal pumped with a door open may have killed the battery somewhat and the terminal isn't making a good connection, if you need anything more, just ask, or you can e-mail me also. OK? Its all inertia, once a part like the van gets touched, a chain of events starts, please relax, and secure another ride, you'll get it. The starter system or starter may have frozen, hitting it or moving its control relays may help but try jumpin it first.
