Hi. I have an unusual problem with my wife's minivan.
Over the course of the last month, the van seemed to turn over slower and slower with each passing day. It's been cold here in Washington so I figured the battery may need to be replaced. The very same day that I planned on purchasing a new battery, the van would not start at all, just clicked.
I purchased, and installed, a new battery. The van still would not start, just clicked.
I purchased, and installed, a new starter solenoid/relay (located on the driver-side inner panel, just right of the battery). The van still would not start, just clicked.
I purchased, and installed, a new starter motor. The van started right up and ran super...
...until I shut it off. The van WILL NOT start.
I have absolutely no idea what the problem is here and I am in dire straits.
Can anyone assist me with this problem?
ANY and ALL assistance will be greatly appreciated.
