turn.   Then if you wait awhile and this very's as well it will start.  The battery has been
tested and is good.  The alternator has been tested and is good.  The starter has been
tested and replaced and is good. It does matter if you use remote start or key it does
same thing.   the dealer ha checked van and can not find anything wrong.  Do you have
any ideas what to do.   thanks

Sounds like the starter is going. Especially, if you here just one click then nothing when it wont start.

I am having the same problem. I changed out everything you mentioned and got new ignition, connectors, and key fobs. The only other thing I know to do is purchase a new starter relay.
