Your facing a bad solenoid on your starter but since they no longer sell the solenoids separately you will need a new starter from the store. While you have the battery cables off, it's a good time to clean them completely before putting them back on.

When i try to start the van i only get a click sound

I would think your battery could be dead. try jumpstarting from a jumper box or another vehicle or better yet put battery on charger for a few hours.
Also check both + and - connections and be sure they are not corroded and are getting good contact. If after this you still get only clicking sound I would think that starter needs replacing.

When i try to start the truck it just clicks

This could be caused by a faulty battery, you can try to jumpstart the vehicle. If it still simply clicks you likely need to replace or rebuild your starter. The clicking sound is caused when the plunger which completes the circuit in the solenoid engages. If it is worn from use it will not actually complete the circuit.

I had a shop put a motor in my jeep. It was there for about three mos. I finally went and got it last week. It won,t start. I have finished hooking every thing up.Now when you try to start it the motor...

sounds like it was not wired properly-try running a wire from the positive side of the battery to the positive side of the coil, see if it runs-if so, you need to look at how the ignition switch was hooked up.

I have a 2006 chevy blazer when it runs it sounds like the starter will not disengage. put a new starter on now it trys to start when the key is off. when I pull the starter relay fuse it stops. when I try...

Either the start relay is stuck, the ignition switch is defective or someone messed up the wiring. I'd start by checking out the relay then check the ignition by checking for battery voltage when the ignition is turned to start (at the relay)

My 1997 chrysler town and country van was running fine until this afternoon. After I stopped and pulled the key out I heard a clicking sound under the hood (around the fuse box). Since then it won't start....

It is highly possible that battery is just dead. This also happened to me on my 97 Jeep Cherokee. I started it in the morning with no issue what so ever, then when i went to go start it again a short while later it was the same issue your having. I tried to jumpstart it and nothing. The clicking noise your hearing is from the starter itself which is perfectly normal when you have a dead battery. That is why your lights dim when you try to start it. It is because when your trying to turn over the starter your having a power drain from whatever is left in the almost dead battery but it doesn't have enough power to turn the starter. Also that is why when you tried to jumpstart it and it didn't work, the battery is just too dead to accept the charge passing through it. Replace the battery and all will be fine. A good name brand battery costs roughly $70-$100 depending on the brand of the battery. I personally have had nothing but good luck with Duralast and Interstate batteries. Good luck. Happy motoring.

Two days ago I noticed my battery was flat as I left the lights on. I recharged it last night and put it back in again today. I then pressed the lock button on my keyfob 5 times so that the key is...

That clicking is the starter trying to engage. Try jumpstarting the vehicle. Your battery may not have come back yet.... and you may need a new one. Try letting it run for a half hour or so after jumpstarting. If it starts immediately after shutting it off you're probably good to go. If it requires another jumpstart then you need a new battery.
