It sound like a bad connection at the battery terminal, start by cleaning up the battery post first not only the terminal. If the post are black clean them the must shine then the inside of the terminal. Now check your ground connection it must be clean also. Now that all is clean make sure that it is also tight, turn the key it should turn on without fail. If you still get a click check the connections at the starter just like at the battery. If you still get a click jet the starter checked at a auto parts like auto zone you may need to replace it. Hope this helps you. JOe
before going after the starter, check the battery and connections. battery must have at least 12v and should be able to withstand a 200amp load for at least 15 seconds to check out as good. I think your starter is on the bottom side of the engine facing the radiator. easiest way to find it is to follow the positive cable from the battery...it goes right to it.
check from the starter relay if you get any power when you attempt to start, if you do, take out relay and connect the cable with power to the cable to the solenoid, (usually red black), if car starts,replace PRND switch on the transmision its very easy to change, once you locate it, you can also try to start the van while moving gear lever within P. GOOD LUCK!
