2000 plymouth voyager doesn't want to crank right off. I've discovered that if I only let the key back one click it will crank. If I bring the key all the way back it acts like the battery is dead but the battery is new.

Re: takes several ''cranks'' to start van
Your ignition switch might be worn or the ignition circuit might have build up resistance due to age. Some cars refuse to start when these things happen. The fix for this is a new electrical part of the ignition switch.

could be fuel issue, spark issue, electronic issue. i would try starting fluid in intake and see if engine fires at all. could be fuel filter, bad coil, crank sensor, engine computer. I would try running the codes on engine and see what codes are present and see if that gives any idea of issue.
have the vehicle scanned while cranking to see if there is a crank position sensor signal (CKP). this tells the ECM that the engine is turning and timing for the spark plugs. If the Brain box doesn't know this then the ASD circuit is tripped and stops fuel and spark. relatives with a dynasty had a crank sensor wire severed from running over something and didn't mention it.
first MAKE SURE THE CAR IS COOL BEFORE TAKING OFF THE RADIATOR CAR!!!!!! failure to do this could result in major burns to the face!!! then check the radiator fluid make sure it is topped off also make sure that you arent just puttin water in the radiator make sure and put some actualcoolant the radiator should be filled with a 50/50 mix of water and coolant
if the problem continues you might want to take it to a shop
First you need to check for spark and if that is okay you need to check for fuel pressure/volume. sounds like a possible bad fuel pump. you can also try hitting the fuel tank with a rubber mallet while cranking. If the van then starts you need a new fuel pump
