The object in question is the solenoid starter switch to the starter motor. Since the starter requires a very large current the switch must have a very large pressure and contact to give that extra connection. So if this humming , it can also be that the starter has failed , is not contacting with the brush and so not turning.
You will need to check the voltage to the starter to confirm, if so repair or replace starter/ starter solenoid as required.

Van wont start or turn over. (battery has lots of power)


Possibly a dirty or loose battery terminal. If they are okay and starter won't click, give the small wire on the starter motor solenoid a wiggle. It could be a bad conection.

Possible dirty fuel filter. I'd start there first, as it's the cheapest route, and quite possibly replacing the filter will solve your problem.

Sounds like you got some bad gas. I would either try an additive to remove water and some octane boost. If that doesn't work you will need to drain the tank. This has been a real problem with the price of gas going up. Some stations in my area have been shut down for putting water in the gas. If it was running fine before you got gas, then more than likely this is your problem.

Rtae this as a Fixya if this solves your problem. Ask more questions if you need to.
