If the problem is no crank, could be the security system, key switch, neutral safety switch, starter, cables, or battery.
I would check for power at the starer and work back.
Did you try it in neutral ?

Replaced starer, solenoid and the postive cable but the van tries to start when i conect the negative cble whatis the problem?

During your replacement you have somehow connected the hot wire on the solenoid and the hot wire from the battery. It could be something as a wire turned slightly the wrong way on the starter and touching the battery positive.. Relook at this and you should be able to solve the problem.

Be very careful and make sure that the vehicle is not in gear.. Best of Luck..

The car sat for 2 months the battery died install a new one i get power but wont turn over its a 2003 mini cooper s could the starer freeze up

A starter freeze-up would probably give forth much smoke from the wiring and the starter motor itself. You need a test light or meter to check for power at the starer solenoid. Check from ground (engine block) to the terminal that connects to the positive battery cable (should light). If nothing, check the battery terminals for corrosion (use a special battery cleaning brush from your auto parts store --cheap) and check the cables near the terminals for excess wire corrosion. Recheck for power at the solenoid again--it should now give light (meter read 12.6 volts). Try the starter again--if only hear a 'click', test at the starter motor terminal for power when the key is turned. If you get light, then the starter motor is defective (likely a bad brush or spring) and should be removed for repair or replacement. If you got no power at the starter terminal, then replace the solenoid. Hope this helps!

To remove my starter I removed 2 grounding screws from the transmission and now I don't remember where each wire should go. Does the blue wire go to the starter or to the ground?

ok tipically you should get two wires to the starter some times 3. the control. ign. switch, b+ cable. and all are connected to the starer solenoid. batery cable should have bigger clamp.

Starting problem, battery? alternator??

Unless you have good jumper cables it would start easy since I didn't get in on the begining of this I will assume you have a bad connection tothe starer or a bad starter if it drags.

Starer clicks when key turned

Make sure your foot is on the brake, and shift linkage is all the way up in park position. Really clean your battery connectors, battery acid and residue is toxic and will eat holes in your clothes, rinse with lots of water immediately. Make sure jumper cables are beefy or they will not allow enough power. If your starter clicks, it is either weak battery, dead solenoid connectors or dead armature inside the starter. In rare cases cable connections can come loose at the solenoid or at the ignition switch. (A mechanic knows to take some solenoids apart and turn the connectors upside down to the uncorroded side.)

No power after changing gas fuel pump for 91 chev

You have a short to ground.What that means is,you have a power wire...............that is grounding on the vehicle somewhere,or possibly back in the fuel pump.The fuel pump theoretically could be shorted internally causing the problem.It also could be a wire or wires back where you were working possibly got pinched.Disconnect negative battery terminal until problem is solved.
