Starting simple... did you try jump starting it? ... It could just be a weak battery. Does the interior lights fade or radio cut out when the key is turned to start position?

While turning the key to start. Have someone put a finger on the starter relay to see if they feel it clicking. I attached a picture of the fuse block found under the hood.

That means your ignition is working. The next step is to check to see if there is power at the starter. I am not sure if you can locate the starter or if you have a test light or way of testing to see if there is power down by the starter.

At the main power wire or at the solenoid or s terminal?

Harry, what was your solution? I have a 2006 Pacifica Touring with the identical issues.

Yes I had the same issue I added a 4 Gage battery wire and rran it from the positive side of the battery and ran the other to a ground (screw) on trans. Then jumped the car Starts every time and the issue has stopped. For some reason the wires used on this battery is not strong enough and corrodes fast. Took a lot of research no videos but I hope this helps there is one on YouTube to do this method I speak of
