Question type: Maintenance & Repair

have replaced the battery , the starter and the alternator, and yet the sprinter sometimes will not start . when you turn the key, engine fan kicks on but nothing ..it won't start.  after jumping it, it will run fine for a day or two and then the same thing happens. any advice?

You need to test for a possible parasitic drain. Start with this test http://www.wikihow.com/Find-a-Parasitic-Battery-Drain If you determine that you have a drain you need to locate it, which is tedious and quite a long process less you get lucky but I think you would agree not having to jump your car all the time would make it worth it. Good Luck
